If you read Alone With You in the Ether and developed Aldo's fascination with bees, The Honeys is nothing like it but it does have bees. Alternatively, this book could be pitched as a YA version of Mona Awad's Bunny, except there are bees and it's summertime."

"This is the way the world ends... for the last time." In a single day: Essun, a woman trying to live an ordinary life in a small village, comes home to find that her husband has brutally murdered their youngest child and disappeared with their oldest; across the continent known as The Stillness, a mighty empire collapses when most of its citizens are murdered by a man seeking vengeance; The Stillness has been cleaved in two, resulting in a massive rift that spews enough ash to cover the entire continent for years, or centuries. Masterfully told in first, second, and third person narratives, N.K. Jemisin's critically acclaimed and Hugo award winning (for all three books in the series!!!) is perfect not only for seasoned fantasy enthusiasts, but also those tentatively looking to dip their toes into genre fiction.

A story perfect for STEM enthusiasts, My Mechanical Romance follows Bel, a high school student too anxious to give her future the attention that everyone thinks it deserves. When she shows a natural talent for engineering, Bel is coerced into joining her school's robotics club. All the boys on the team ignore her--except for Mateo, the captain. Mateo thinks that Bel can be a good thing for the team, but they struggle to see eye-to-eye. As they spend more time together, they realize that they've not only improved the club, but also grown as individuals. Heart warming, funny, and loaded with the wit that the author is known for (she's more recognizable as her pseudonym Olivie Blake), this is a fun way to kick off the summer.

It's 1882 in England, and when a detective is recruited to escort them to the mysterious Institute where they'll be safe, all three begin a journey that carries them from London, to Meiji-era Tokyo, and finally to the Institute's eerie estate in Edinburgh. As secrets within the Institute are revealed, the children begin to discover the truth of why they have the abilities that they do, what's really stalking them, and that the worst monsters sometimes bring the sweetest gifts.

Published: Farrar, Straus and Giroux - April 12th, 2022

 

If you're looking for new, unique, and diverse writing that is reminiscent of authors like Mona Awad, Cat Valente, and Carmen Maria Machado, this book is an ideal read for you! Chadburn's Filipino heritage lends a heavy filter to the narrative, which follows the too-short life of a woman cast out by society and transformed by death into an agent of justice--or mercy. Murdered by a serial killer, Marina Salles' life doesn't end the day she wakes up dead. Transformed into a monster from myth, she has nine days to decide whether to enact revenge.

Published: Margaret K. McElderry Books - November 16th, 2021

This action-packed sequel to These Violent Delights, a 1920s retelling of Romeo and Juliet in Shanghai except they are heirs to rival gangs, is a beautiful summation of Gong's thoroughness as a writer. Without spoiling the events of the end of the last book, the story continues with a changed Juliette and Roma. The usual "I hate you but we have to work together" fanfare continues but now, the stakes are so much higher and Shanghai is even bloodier. Come for the Shakespearean influences, stay for Gong's expertise on the beginning of a turbulent history in China.
