Article by Fay Clark
This might be the most interesting recommendation I'll do this month. I have no idea what you read, and therefore will be trying to recommend various different genres.
CHALLENGE THREE - READ A GENRE YOU WOULDN'T NORMALLY PICK UP.
Recommendation 1 - A Dowry of Blood by S.T. Gibson. This is a Horror novel. Saved from the brink of death by a mysterious stranger, Constanta is transformed from a medieval peasant into a bride fit for an undying king.

Finding comfort in the arms of her rival consorts, she begins to unravel their husband’s dark secrets.

That's all I've got for you this time. I've really tried to branch out and give different genres. I also happen to live every single book that I've recommended a few even made me cry like an idiot.
