Happy Chanukah!! Some of you may not know, Hanukkah is the festival of lights, and in certain tales, fairies show up as lights. To celebrate the Fae & Chanukah, we are talking about books that have become the beacon of light for us. What book or genre has been a light for you during 2020?
I’m super excited because this is a prompt that I came up with! Special shout out to Kristy for being my own personal beacon of light as one of the most amazing friends that I’ve been blessed with, and for taking the time to recognize my holiday amidst the overwhelming Christmas spirit this month.
If you have ever read basically anything on my blog, you’ll know how much I rely on the fantasy genre as an escape. But I’ve actually started reading some romances recently, and even though they tend to deal with some seriously deep issues, they’re also sweet and funny and make me believe in the goodness of people out there. So there have definitely been some amazing romance novels that I’ve read this year that have been a shining beacon of light this year. Kristy has definitely been my recommendation guru for this, but some of my favorites have been:
- One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London
- Recommended for You by Laura Silverman (which ALSO deals with Chanukah!)
- You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson
- The Last Summer by Cait Marie
- Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert
What has books or genre has been a beacon of light for you? And Happy Chanukah!
