Time Travel and Romance Collide in Alexandra Bracken’s ‘Passenger’ Series

in Giveaways by

Over the years, I’ve devoured any time travel book that I can, especially ones involving romances that exist out of space and time. And there have been a lot of good ones: Outlander, The Time Traveler’s Wife, and Timeline, to name a few. So when I first heard of Alexandra Bracken’s young adult book Passenger (Disney-Hyperion, January 2016), I knew I had to get my hands on it. As soon as I started reading, I was hooked.

These 15 Fantasy Novels by Female Authors are Electrifying the Genre

in Fiction by

Fantasy is everywhere these days, and I’m not complaining. I’ve always loved reading about other worlds, with their kings and queens and dragons and epic romances. When I was younger, most of the fantasy authors I would see on the shelves were men. These days, I’m happy to see that more and more female authors are being published within the genre. I might even go as far as to say we’re in a boom of female-driven fantasy. Thank God. While I could just put endless amounts of books in this list, here are 15 recent (or about-to-be released) fantasy novels I just can’t wait to read; all written by women, of course. Marked in Flesh (The Others #4), Anne Bishop (Roc, March…
