@darkfaerietales Do you prefer stand-alones, duologies, trilogies or longer series??? . Honestly I love them all but I do find a good stand alone refreshing. It’s nice to be able to read a book and then move onto something else (especially sense I get board easily 😂). . Featured in this video are great stand alone fantasy recs you should definitely check out. #booktok #bookrec #fantasystandalone #standalonebooks #bookreconmendations #books ♬ Live in the pages of a book – Rachel
