Serpent & Dove

By Shelby Mahurin

Book cover of Serpent & Dove

Why this book?

This book has all you can ask for: A great story, likeable characters, and an enemies-to-lovers romance that will make you swoon. The French setting was a refreshing take, and both the romance and the plot moved in a fluid way. The characters were layered and the story kept me on the edge of my seat.

Pestilence (The Four Horsemen Book #1)

By Laura Thalassa

Book cover of Pestilence (The Four Horsemen Book #1)

Why this book?

This Dystopian Romance will make you swoon. The plot and characters are *chef’s kiss*. Gripping from beginning to the end. The entire series revolves around different horsemen and different characters, so you’ll always find a fresh new story, with different elements, too. Although this is a Dystopian Romance, it has loads of fantastical elements.

A Court of Thorns and Roses

By Sarah J. Maas

Book cover of A Court of Thorns and Roses

Why this book?

This one is already turning into a classic, so there isn’t much to say about it other than give it a go. You will find romance, a fantastic world, and drop-dead-gorgeous book-boyfriends with bat-like wings that will send your heart racing. Book 2 is even better than book 1, which is an amazing feat!

The Shadows Between Us

By Tricia Levenseller

Book cover of The Shadows Between Us

Why this book?

This book is so different from what you normally find in the genre, but it still hits the tropes that make me love Romantic Fantasy. We start with a main character who is actually a villain, and their decisions can be sometimes morally grey. Definitely a must read.
