My favorites in this collection are The Summer People, The Lesson, and The New Boyfriend, but they're all fantastic (and fantastical), with strong female leads to boot.  Kelly Link has a wacky, clever, bizarre imagination. Perfect for curling up with during the next thunderstorm.

I wish I could live in the world Rebecca Kim Wells has built in SHATTER THE SKY. This book has it all: adventure; intrigue; a culture that accepts queerness without question; a protagonist who is clever, practical, determined, and impossible not to love. And, of course, DRAGONS!

The only thing that would make me love this book more is if it had been published 15 years ago so I could have read it over and over again as a teenager.

An Ember in the Ashes is one of my all time favorite books. From the first chapter to the last, you will be consumed by Sabaa Tahir's fantastic writing. Right from the start, you enter the Martial Empire and the story sets off, pulling you with it.  Laia and Elias happen to be the main characters, but Helene will surprise you. And Helene is who I'm rooting for to win it all. Who will you root for?

Kalyn's father murdered Gus's father seventeen years ago. Or did he? In Wild and Crooked, Thomas delves into the prejudices around the murder that split their small Kentucky town and their families in half, while also deftly exploring family, social class, sexuality, homophobia, poverty, and disability in a way that never feels forced. The book avoids the trap of a Romeo and Juliet romance and instead focuses on family and friendship in a gripping, heartfelt novel of forgiveness and love.

Tiny T-Rex and the Impossible Hug

 

Who has teeny, tiny arms, a huge heart, and not a lot of sense? Tiny the T-Rex! Just try not to fall in love with him. Good luck with a hug though.
