video: off the shelf – June reads

It’s been an emotional and physical roller coaster of a day, but that’s a story for another time. In the meantime, June reads 🙂

(sorry about the shaking, I think I kicked the tripod a few times)

5 things: unexpected love stories

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I rounded up 5 of my favorite, unexpected, slightly unconventional, but totally magical love stories.

5 things: unexpected love stories

 

Lovely, easy breezy reads with a twist. A Song for Summer is a historical romance set against WWII, while The China Garden is set in the English countryside sometime in the ’90s (I haven’t read it in a while, but I think it’s aged pretty well). UprootedShades of Milk and Honey, and Rose Daughter need little introduction. Excellent, magical girl fantasy for all.
