It's #FaeFriday, and that means it's time to let your inner fae come out and play! Instead of doing a Valentine's Day theme, I decided that for this week, we'd talk about healing.

Just like fae, books can be incredibly healing, so the prompt this week is: What book helped you through a difficult time?

I loved the banter that Nina and Liz had, and I understood Nina's anxiety. Unfortunately, this book didn't live up to the first few chapters.
I finally was able to figure out what I love about Samantha Young's writing style, and it's the fact that each story reads like your best friend is telling you the story. It's almost like you sit down and spend 4 hours listening to your best friend's dirty jokes, setbacks, and love life.
Have you always wanted to read a book about an FBI profiler with ties to a local crime lord's son? If so, check out this mystery by Lisa Renee Jones. Personally, it wasn't my favorite but maybe it could be yours.
The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa is tragic, beautiful, simplistic, and precisely what I needed to read.
