It's quiet, rich in historical detail, and employs good direction of it's magic. It's not to miss if you enjoy expansive world building, humor that's reminiscent of P.G. Wodehouse, and won't mind reading an 800 page novel (be not afraid!!).

Starling House is a contemporary Southern Gothic novel about a small town, a haunted house, and a young woman trying desperately to be a Good Adult; it also happens to be my favorite 2023 release! Charming, heartbreaking, delightfully creepy, and hilariously romantic, this is a great addition to everyone's fall to-be-read list!!!

Funny meets violent in this wonderful graphic novel about a Chinese-American family with a past full of magic, mystery, and casual violence (but in like... a fun way...). Twins, Milly and Billy, are having a tough time keeping their restaurant afloat. Luckily their parents, Ipo and Keon, are in town for their annual visit. Ipo and Keon have supported their children through thick and thin and are ready to lend a hand—but they're starting to wonder if their support has made the twins incapable of standing on their own. When Ipo forces them to help her clean up the house next door—a hellish and run-down ruin that was the scene of a grisly murder—the twins are in for a nasty surprise. A night of terror, gore, and supernatural mayhem reveals that there is much more to Ipo and her children than meets the eye.
