From the Den: January Edition

From the Den is a feature to showcase the books that I don't post reviews for on the blog, whether I liked them or not. I read so many books that never make it onto The Fox's Hideaway, so I wanted a feature where I could still tell y'all about them. :)

*****

Welp, I had completely forgotten that I hadn't posted this yet! LOL. But to be fair, I didn't read a whole lot in January. And of what I read, more than half were either rereads or short stories. However, I did get to a few books that I'd wanted to read for awhile!


The Little Mermaid
I loved finally getting the chance to read these classic fairytales! It was interesting to see where some of the inspiration for things had come from, and how similar and different The Little Mermaid was to the Disney movie. I highly recommend these Minalima editions; they're so gorgeous and worth it!
Rating: 4 Paw Prints!


Tikka Chance on Me
omg I really ADORED this!! Short, sweet, and sexy. With a nerdy guy and a take-charge girl. The characters were great, and even in the small amount of time that they spend together, you still believe in their relationship. I would gladly have read more of them!
Rating: 4 Paw Prints!


Heartwood: Non-binary Tales of Sylvan Fantasy
Another Kickstarted anthology! I really enjoyed this. My favorites were The Beast in the Garden, Love Letters, In the Branches, In the Soil, Shepherd, Morel Support, The Lungs of Jeju, and Shuvah (Return). It was a really nice collection of pretty black-and-white graphics, inclusive casts, and a wide variety of stories.
Rating: 3.5 stars!


I didn't read as much as I'd hoped in January, but I really loved diving back into the Grisha series instead! What books did you read in January? Have you read any of these yet? Let's talk! :)

(115) Top Ten Forever OTPs

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was started by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week's topic: Favorite Couples in Books

1. Kaz and Inej
"I would come for you. I would come for you. And if I couldn't walk, I'd crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we'd fight our way out together--knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that's what we do. We never stop fighting." I'M SOBBING THANKS

2. Moira and Cian
the future Queen of Geall and the vampire, they shouldn't work so well together, BUT THEY DO. and hate-to-love is my WEAKNESS.

3. Sadia and Jackson
Their romance was hot and passionate, and their friendship had created such a deep bond between them. I loved them so much *heart eyes*

4. Aileana and Kiaran
The warrior honed into a weapon against his kind and the faerie who's lived thousands of years. Every time he called her Kam, I fucking MELTED.

5. Blue and Gansey
BLUESEYYYYY

6. Tristan and Scarlet
These two were one of my FIRST favorite couples in books, and I still love them, and this series a lot. It doesn't hold up well nowadays, but I DON'T CARE.

7. Connor and Rose
These two are strong-willed, intelligent, and I loved watching them battle to come out on top. And I'm so glad they got to build their kingdom.

8. Alex and Henry
I feel like I'm cheating because it's not out yet, but WHATEVER, I just finished this book and if I don't include these two, then what the fuck am I doing? MY SONS.

9. Kell and Lila
The girl who should never have been able to cross worlds, and the traveler who helped her. Their banter KILLED me.

10. Mycroft and Watts
The boy genius and his partner, a girl who's his equal, his champion, and the one person who sees him for who he is. Gah, they're just perfect for each other.

Bonus: literally every ship in the Lumatere Chronicles!
