My Favorite Stand Alone Fantasy Novels

Fantasy is by far the best fictional genre. Who does not love a story involving wizards, magic, dragons, and the like? As much as I adore expansive series that thoroughly explore the depths of their detailed worlds, stand alone novels really speak to me. Inside their pages is a compact, singular tale that starts and ends in one volume. You do not have to wait for years on end to discover the secrets and dramatic finales. So I decided to compile a list of my favorite stand alone fantasy novels for everyone to enjoy. Pick one up and read it cover to cover.

5 Books I Want to Read in 2021

Wow, I have never been so excited for the new year. 2020 flew by at a breakneck pace while also seeming to last a hundred years. We were all thrown through loops nearly every single day, so here's hoping that this year will bring some much needed peace and quiet. For me, reading allows me to escape the current moment and dive into a world of fiction. This hobby has been a lifesaver for many lately. So, as usual, I have a list of books in mind that I would like to read in 2021.

Best Books of 2020


2020 was a peculiar year. I do not think anyone expected the pandemic or quarantine. I started off flying to Scotland to study abroad, which got cut short early (thanks COVID), then I spent the rest of the year inside doing online university. How strange. Thankfully, I was able to escape reality and delve into some pretty amazing books. That is the beauty of fiction--they will always be there to transport you to other worlds and lives amidst the chaos of our own. These books made me laugh and cry, but most of all they brought me immense joy.
