hey i'm kind of stuck on what to read atm and heck since it's valentine's day can you recommend any good romance novels?

OMG! I have asks. I have no idea when you sent this. I just saw it. Sorry if it’s been a while.

I don’t read much romance. But if you like historical fantasy that’s heavy on the romance, I am IN LOVE with Jessica Spotswood’s Cahill Witch Chronicles. Born Wicked, Star Cursed, and Sisters’ Fate (out this summer).

And if you enjoy adult romance with some super sexy scenes, I really enjoy Seleste deLaney’s books. I’ve read most of her stuff. My favorite is Gaming for Keeps. But her steampunk series is awesome, too!


So Cassandra Jean has finished the complete Shadowhunter Tarot, so for the next … seventy-something days I’ll be posting a card a day in order, from the first card to the last. Some will be under spoiler cuts; some you’ll have seen before — I’ll explain why each character has the card they have. 

Luke and Jocelyn take the Wheel of Fortune card, here renamed the Destined, as it represents stability amid chaos and change. Luke and Jocelyn’s relationship survived chaos, a war, a rebellion, her terrible marriage, his turning into a Downworlder, and much more. Theirs is a great if quiet love. :)

It’s YA that is pushing at the boundaries of sex and gender, asking readers what it really means to be male or female, and questioning the very root assumption that “male” and “female” are the default and only options when it comes to gender. YA probes at human sexuality, featuring a variety of relationship configurations and personalities interacting with each other in a way that feels not simply genuine and authentic, but also more reflective of the world we live in today, one where gender and sexuality are more fluid than ever before.
