so yeah, below are books that according to goodreads are urban fantasy.

” a subgenre of fantasy in which the narrative has an urban setting. Works of urban fantasy are set primarily in the real world and contain aspects of fantasy, such as the discovery of earthbound mythological creatures, coexistence or conflict between humans and paranormal beings, and other changes to city life. A contemporary setting is not strictly necessary for a work of urban fantasy: works of the genre may also take place in futuristic and historical settings, real or imagined. “


daughter of smoke and bone

this was my first ever book by laini taylor and i absolutely loved this book, sadly i didn’t enjoy the other two in the series but this book was friggin awesome. the main character was awesome and there were chimeras and angels and just everything awesome, maybe a bit to insta-lovey at times but it begins to make sense after the twist is explained and i’m a lot less confused, but yes. READ THIS SERIES, or maybe just the first book as it ended up being the only book in the series i enjoyed.


okay, i haven’t read this since 2016 but at the time this series blew me away and i’m pretty certain that if i was going to read it now i’d probably still do it with a big grin on my face, not only was this book amazing in so many different aspects the romance between penryn and raffe is still one of my alltime favourite ships, like YAS i can get on board with there romance, super cute and just i love them together.

the last magician

this book was definitely up there with my top favourite books of 2017, it blew me away i was seriously so surprised with how much i loved it.  our main character esta is amazing and the twists and turns in this book WILL SHOCK YOU, or at least it shocked me anyway??? soooo good, so so so good. like seriously, if you haven’t read it yet, PLEASEEE go and pick it up right now.

the cruel prince

SO THIS IS MY FAVOURITE BOOK OF 2018 SO FAR. woops, just had to get that out here, and the fact that it’s classed as urban fantasy on goodreads means i get to ramble on about it some more so please pick this book up, the writing and the plot is just magical and if that doesn’t sway you then pick it up because you need to meet the badass main character jude and the swoony dark prince cardan.

top ten tuesday // books i could re-read forever

YES, this is a top ten tuesday that I am living for because I love to re read my favourite books so im super excited to do this list 🙂


Harry Potter series

This book whenever I looked at it is my childhood, my sister owned all the books and she used to lend them me as soon as she read the, now I don’t live at home anymore I brought my own set and although I wished I had my sisters set I still love mine and every time I dive back into this series I do it with a smile on my face because it will always be a book that I never tire of reading because its so magical and amazing and I could rave about it for hours.


an ember in the ashes series

I LOVED the first book in this series, like it was amazing total five out of five stars and I could read this book forever, SADLY the second book I didn’t like half as much. I’m actually planning a re-read of the whole series this year in in preparation for the final book in the series which although I didn’t like the second book very much im still so excited to read the third one, I have high hopes for it I just hope that it’s met and I’m not disappointed! 🙁

the illuminae files series

THIS SERIES OMG like I love this series so much and I can’t wait to read obsidio when it comes out because it is going to be AMAZING and just yes. I also plan to re read these books, I really like reading them, not only is the plot and everything about it amazing but the layout of the books make it a really fun and quick read and it’s quite an interesting layout it’s the first book I’ve seen like that and I really like how it’s set out.


the infernal devices series.

I’m just going to put it out here now that this won’t be the last book you see on here by Cassandra Clare sooo, sorry not sorry. I LOVE this whole series, Tessa and will are amazing and precious cinnamon roll that is jem <33333 I haven’t read this series in about 3/4 years and would love to re-read it again soon and see if I still love it as much as I did when I first read it, which hopefully I will because I love anything and everything that is shadowhunters! 😀

shades of magic series

I think I’m always going to have a special place in my heart for this series as it was the first series that interested my to Schwab and her wonderful writing and I haven’t looked back since because SHE IS SUCH A QUEEN, I love her and her writing so much and this book it just amazing, multiple Londons? red coats???? KELL????? ugh, I just love this series, I feel a reread coming on at some point this year for this series 🙂

the moral instruments series

told ya there was going to be more (there is gonna be one more after this and that’s it I promise). THIS BOOK, I loved the movie when it first came out and the tv show is okay?? like I haven’t had the urge to watch it because I haven’t heard the greatest things but we’ll see. THIS WAS THE FIRST EVER CASSANDRA CLARE BOOK I EVER PICKED UP. like ever, and I loved it and I think it was the 10th anniversary?? wow, I was 15 when this first came out. CRAZZZY, also how nice is that special edition they released? I want itttttt.

a court of thorns and roses series

this series, just wow I loved this series. I plan to re-read this series anyway because of a court of frost and starlight coming out this year, my ONLY problem is I’m scared about reading the first book??? because (no spoilers of course) we who have read the whole series know what happens with Tamlin and all that stuff so I’m unsure about how much I will enjoy the first book? someone who has done a reread since the third book leave it the comments if you still enjoyed the first book 🙂
