1. The Romanov family
I've mentioned this before, and while I don't pick up every book about the Romanov family, I went through a phase in early high school where I was into reading about the Romanovs. That said, it's weird that I have never seen the cartoon Anastasia.;)
2. Letter writing
I'm fairly certain that it has been established that I'm a huge nerd, so this one should come as no surprise. I get all swoony when characters fall in love through letters.
Yes, fairly certain this will always be my favorite Kasie West story.;)
It all started with Beauty and the Beast.;)
4. A good Jane Austen inspired story
This is one of my favorites, when "Another Lady" finished Sandition.
5. Fairy tale retelling
These are some of my favorites, since they are original while still fitting as retellings. I highly recommend them!
I actually don't read a whole lot about fairies, but I do love a good fairy story, like this series!
7. A story set in WWII
This one comes to mind, since I have a copy coming soon!
8. Pretty covers with elegant writing
Another one that is on my mind, since it arrived today!
9. Fun characters
I adore Madeline!
Magic/speculative fiction, I don't read tons of it, but I do enjoy it and watch for new releases from my favorite authors!
