Sebastian Orwell did the only thing a smart wizard could do when he stumbled upon the wounded Crown Prince: he healed him and dumped him in a tavern where he could continue not being Sebastian’s problem. Unfortunately, the prince isn’t content with being alive, and he hunts Sebastian down to thank him personally. Not only is Sebastian stuck with the prince’s unwanted affections, he’s also confronted by growing evidence linking the assassination attempt to someone from his father’s past.

Lord Orwell is a lot of things: thief, liar, drunk, and all around horrible father, but Sebastian knows he’s no murderer. In order to prove it, Sebastian has to keep the prince alive long enough to discover the truth—a task made considerably harder because the idiot prince prefers wooing Sebastian over securing his own survival. On top of everything, Sebastian needs to save the day without revealing his magical powers and the real reason he hides his appearance.

Sebastian had no intention of playing the hero, but whoever is stirring up shit in his country will pay for destroying his quiet life.

Why is it a favourite?

Family OF Lies: Sebastian is such a breath of fresh air! The first time I read it, I DEVOURED it! I fell in love with the characters, the setting, and the romance between the main characters.

Not only is this book an amazing example of the fantasy genre but my god, the characters just jump from the page! Honestly I think Sebastian and Prince Turren are my favourite romantic pair 💕

There is snark.

There is sarcasm.

And there is a hard won happy ending, I may as well stop reading other books because Family of Lies: Sebastian is the perfect book for me.

Favourites: The Addams Family (1964)

The Addams Family

(TV Series)

IMDB: link.


Blurb: They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re The Addams Family! America’s first family of ghastly giddiness, are here in all of their ghoulish glory in the original TV series based on the delightfully demented imagination of Charles Addams. Tarantulas, torture racks, and tombstones have never been so much fun!

Join Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Cousin Itt, and the rest of the gang for a fiendishly funny and altogether kooky experience. It’s time to pay a call on The Addams Family


Length: 64 episodes.

Genre: Comedy.


Why is it a favourite?

Morticia and Gomez.

I am in love with them individually and as a couple ❤ When I first encountered the Addams Family, it was with the 1991 film with Anjelica Huston and Raúl Juliá and I fell in love.

It wasn’t until a late night TV binge that I found the original TV series, and fell even harder in love. After quickly purchasing the complete collection, I devoured the series and loved every episode.

The show is so funny, very adorable, and for something that was created in the 60’s, has aged quite well. If you’re an Addams Family fan, this is definite recommended watching.

Back in the long long ago, a two level book store opened near where I live. This store (for a few years at least) was a game changer for me. I had a small source of income and unrepentantly spent too much of it here.

One section of this store that opened up a new world of accessible books for me was the romance section. I will admit I didn’t like being seen in this section or spending too much time in here but still it had WAY more romance books than my library 😍
