    Oooh, this one was a hard one, Sarah. It wasn’t one of those ones you can immediately list off the top of your head, but you did fantastic with it! Most of the places that you included are definitely where I get my book recs from. I used to only rely on Goodreads to give me recommendations, but there is so much more to it now that you’re in the book blogging world. Also, can I have my own King’s English? D: XD Wonderful post!

      Thanks! It was really tough but I’m glad you enjoyed it! I wish I could share The King’s English with you because it’s the best Indie bookshop! I used to only get my Rec’s from my family and a few friends. I only started using Goodreads a couple years ago. There is a huge bookish world out there and it’s been so fun!!

    Great list! Beautiful covers are my weakness too! I love reading Action packed YA fantasy books with light romance. I also can’t resist books with enemies to lovers or hate to love tropes. 🙂

    I am terrible for buying books based solely on the pretty book cover haha. I must admit the synopsis actually has a big part in whether I buy it or not. First impressions are important after all when it comes to book 😛

    • SarahYAandWine says:

      I agree! The synopsis isn’t as important so I always check if someone I know has marked it as to-read or read on Goodreads. Sometimes I’ll get them if they are on Daily Deals and I’m familiar with them.
