There’s something so satisfying about a series being completed, and we are so thankful we got to add this last book to our shelves.

The Best Laid Plans

Adorable friends-to-lovers trope? Check. Lovable characters? Check. Had us on the floor laughing? Check.


The Kinder Poison by Natalie Mae


Zahru accidentally getting finding herself in the inconvenient position of human sacrifice because she snuck into the palace to eat some of the food at the banquet is…possibly one of our favorite things ever.

Also, we’re thankful for #TeamKasta.

We are SO thankful Darius’s story was continued, and for a second cozy book to cuddle up with a blanket and some tea!

Kat Cho is a GENIUS at creating the perfect blend of romance, adventure, and mythology.

Sometimes returning to one of the OG dystopian worlds that made you love reading is all you need.


Anna and the French Kiss Collector’s Edition by Stephanie Perkins


It probably goes without saying we’re thankful for this gorgeous collector’s edition and all the new goodies inside!
