Fae Friday is an awesome new weekly post created by Kristy at Caffeinated Fae. I’m super excited to participate in this (and to have been an avid supporter of it from the beginning)! A topic is provided each week, and Kristy is so welcoming to ideas from others. If you have any ideas for topics, reach out to her through her blog or on Twitter (@caffeinatedfae).
Here’s how it works:
- Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
- If the prompt idea comes from another blog, link to that blog as well.
- Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
- Participate when you can and have fun with the prompt!
Kristy: It’s two days until my birthday!! And one of the best gifts I get is knowing that someone loves a book I recommend which is why this weeks prompt is: What are some of your go to recommendations for people to read?
Happy upcoming birthday to Kristy! She happens to be the best book recommender that I know, since I have loved every book that she’s recommended for me. The kind of books that I recommend to others really depend on the genre that they like, but here are some of my tried and true recommendations:
Romance: One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston and Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon. These are such awesome romances that really had me rooting for the characters to get together.
Historical fiction: The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwell. This series has been known to get my reading-averse nephew into reading compulsively. It’s got it all — awesome history, fighting, romance, politics, and plenty of adventure, and it’s written so incredibly well. Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco is another favorite series that I have been recommending to everyone.
Mystery/Thriller: Anything by Karin Slaughter. If you like this genre, you can’t go wrong with one of her books. Literally, any one of her books, although I’m fairly partial to the Will Trent series.
Fantasy: The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang and Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. These are both such great books in different ways, and I love them so much.
Sci-Fi: Red Rising by Pierce Brown. I’m not usually a sci-fi fan, but this series just got me hooked and I couldn’t put it down!
What are some books that you always recommend?

Thank you for this! I’ve always wanted to read Fae fiction but I had no idea where to start, so these recommendations are very helpful.

Glad to help, but these books aren’t Fae related! I probably have a post somewhere about Fae books though.
