Lesbian necromancers in space! If that tagline didn't get you already, this book is perfect for anyone who loves impossible storylines. In this futuristic empire, what's left of humanity has settled across nine planets. As protectors of the Locked Tomb, the inhabitants of the Ninth are practitioners of necromancy, and its Reverend Daughter, Harrowhark, is in need of a cavalier so she can become one of God's hands. Gideon has a sword but wants nothing more to do with the Ninth. It's dark in a funny way, aesthetic--if you have a thing for skeletons, swords, and academia--and is one of my favorite books of all time. Gideon and Harrowhark are sure to stay in your brain forever (that's a little joke for Book 2).

If you've ever felt confused about the plotline of Hayao Miyazaki's movie and want more of Howl's overdramatic eccentricities, check out the book it was based on! It has the same vibes but it's funny, contextual, and this version of Howl and Sophie are, dare I say, better than the movie!

Reality and the uncanny meet in this dark narrative. Samantha Heather Mackey doesn’t fit in at her selective, MFA program. Preferring her own company to most of the others in the creative writing department, she is repulsed by a group of girls who call each other “Bunny,” and appear more cultish than simple friends. But as much as she hates them, a part of her longs for acceptance, and so she is swept up in the group and finds herself in the center of a strange and sinister world.
