Top 5 Saturday: Enemies to Lovers (+ sudden and hilarious childhood flashbacks)

Today I'm sharing five books with enemies-to-lovers romance arcs that I really enjoyed! I wonder what it is about 'enemies-to-lovers' that makes it so popular. Perhaps it's because through the inherent process of the romantic arc, the relationship has to be properly developed enough to be convincing in its transmutation from enemies to lovers.

I found that … Continue reading #FanartFriday: Heartstopper, Carry On and The School for Good and Evil
