    It’s nearing the end of National Princess Week, and we’re celebrating our favorite princesses for so much more than just their gorgeous gowns and glass slippers. Princesses in pop culture may look like the Disney princesses of old, waiting for Prince Charming to show up and save them, but they are also fierce warriors and brilliant thinkers, too.

    In honor of the princesses who love to read (and the everyday women who adore it too), we’ve rounded up some of the best book recommendations for our favorite princesses (and a couple of honorary princesses, too) based on their own personalities. These books may even set up our tiara-wearers for their best royal lives…

    It’s National Honesty Day, friends! Here at Quirk Books, we love a character who’s delightfully (or painfully) honest. You can keep your long-buried family secrets and climactic reveals. We’ll take radical honesty any day of the week.

    Although March 25 marked the official Tolkien Reading Day, fans know that every day is Tolkien Reading Day when you just love the Lord of the Rings, and that it's never too late to celebrate! (March 25 does have special significance, though, as it is date of the fall of Barad-dûr—and you would have to be a pretty devoted fan to know it.) 

    The works that someone chooses undoubtedly speak not just to the type of reader that they are, or the adventures they prefer, but the type of person they are outside the world of Middle Earth, too. So what does your favorite Lord of the Rings book say about you?

    It’s Kiss and Make Up Day, the cutest and swooniest of all silly holidays! You can catch us reading romance – and getting annoyed when our favorite enemies to lovers won’t just kiss already! – any day of the week, but today we’re pulling out all the stops. Join us for a tour of our favorite romance novels – with a heavy dose of kissing and making up, of course!

    Grishaverse fans rejoice! Tomorrow is the long-awaited release of Netflix’s Shadow and Bone adaptation, and we’re living for it. Whether you’re an OG Shadow and Bone trilogy fan, an adjacent Six of Crows duology fanatic, or a recent inductee after watching the cinematic trailers, noticing the great cast chemistry, or diving unawares into the more recent King of Scars duology, this weekend is going to be a blast of action-packed, heart-pounding, and potentially tear-jerking content.

    But we all know lows can come after the highs, especially after binging all 8 episodes of what is predicted to be a rather addictive series, and you’re going to need something to fill that Shadow and Bone hole in your heart. You can re-read or catch up on Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels, or you can think of your favorite Grishaverse character and give one of these book recommendations a try.

    (Apologies Baghra, Genya, Nikolai, Tamar, Tolya, etc. fans, but there are just too many great characters in this universe. We can get them next time with the release of a hopeful season 2!)
