Essentially, we are looking for the following titles:

  1. Fantasy, fantasy, and more fantasy
  2. Books that are dreamlike, surreal, otherworldly
  3. Mythical creatures like the phoenix, gryphon, unicorns, dragons, mermaids
  4. Vampires and Zombies, Angels and Demons

Book Hunting from my Own Shelves

Here are some titles that I have been meaning to get to for the longest time now. Our current reading theme now provides me with the perfect excuse to finally bump them up into my to be read stack.
