Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! I’m still in my ‘2022 wrap-up’ blogging phase, and I’ve been giving lists lately, so I thought I would combine the two today and list all 22 of the best romances I read last year!

book recommendations for each enneagram type | all rhodes lead here, the foxhole court, normal people…

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! It’s been a hot minute since I recommended some books here on my blog so I figured what better time than now? I was originally going to do recs directed at each enneagram but then I decided to recommend books based on characters with their enneagram type instead!* I’ve tried to put a broad range of books on here and to categorise the characters myself (some of these I haven’t read in quite a while!) so I’m curious to see how my guesses might compare to yours!

Fun fact, I’m a 6w9 with some type 4 traits too. I’d be really curious to know if you read a lot of books with characters who have a similar enneagram to you or if you read a wide selection of personality types in the books you pick up! I’ve found, in romances in particular that male love interests (in the books I’ve been picking up) have a lot of type 6 and 8 traits. I also tend not to read a lot of books with type 9 characters as main characters.

*Also please keep in mind that a lot of this is just me guessing enneagram numbers and wings so it’s totally okay for you to have a different opinion/ view of that character!

*Just a heads up, it took me a while to put this list together and in that time I slightly forgot how wings work and did them slightly wrong (even if I agree with the wrong numbers lol) with a wing you can only do a number directly left or right of the main enneagram type. e.g. 4w3 or 4w5 πŸ˜‚

he’s a 10 but… | romance recommendations

Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! Today I’m trying something a bit new that I saw recently on Instagram and thought looked like fun. I’ve seen this trend going around Bookstagram lately where people start off by saying ‘he’s a 10 but…’ and then try and explain the guy’s flaws in a fun way. I’m not sure I completely aced this on the first go but I did have fun trying so here are a few recommendations that I hope you at least get a laugh out of!

FICTION TROPES THAT MAKE ME ABSOLUTELY FROTH AT THE MOUTH (PART ONE)

Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! A few months ago I made a blog post about 22 things I love in books and it really inspired me to write about my favourite tropes in fiction so today that’s what I’m going to do today! I’ve also put part one in the title because I’m really hoping to eventually add a second post to this and make it a series!

Also, there will be a lot of links to threads on Twitter because explaining my feelings on a subject in great detail is not one of my strong points so I’ll give it my best shot and then link to people who no doubt said it better than me.

I’ll be honest I struggled with coming up with recommendations for each prompt, so if you have any recommendations please leave them in the comments. I’ll be eternally greatful!
