If you enjoyed Mexican Gothic, you’re going to (lose it) over The Hacienda. Cañas has captured the eerie trapped feeling of a gothic with perfect skill and has crafted a vivid, gory, and terrifying story that you won’t be able to put down. This is the type of horror novel that keeps you up at night as its beautiful imagery creeps its way into your nightmares. And to top it all off, there’s a romance that will have you yelling “JUST KISS ALREADY” at the page

If you're only going to read one book for National Poetry Month, you can't go wrong with this one. Linda Gregerson covers a variety of topics but approaches them all with the type of beautiful verse that had me rereading poems over and over again.

This book has left me completely speechless (which makes it hard to write a review) but I’ll give it a shot. Why should you read this book? Well, we can start with the fact that the prose is so gorgeous I had to stop the audiobook and buy a physical copy just so I could highlight everything, or we could talk about how each character is complex and real and desperate and fighting for exactly what they want, or the fact that Tasha Suri is a master worldbuilder. If you like high fantasy that deals with the price of power, believe me when I say every minute you’re not reading this book is a mistake.

You need to read this book. I don't care who you are, but if you're living in year three of a pandemic and have even an iota of connection to the world (I wouldn't blame you if you've checked out) you need to read this book. Emily and Amelia Nagoski have created a book that brings you through actual real things you can do to help yourself feel less burnt out even when you can't change the world around you. I am not a self help book person, but even before I finished this book I found myself flipping back to passages, annotating the parts I needed the most, and quoting it to those around me. I know for a fact I will be reading it again.

We have not seen the story of Psyche and Eros retold enough, but the world of Dark Olympus was the perfect setting for it. The characters were complex and wonderful and I loved them and hated them in turn. This book is in turns sexy and heartwarming, and leaves the reader wanting more (seriously, I would like book three immediately).

Whether you’ve read The Hazel Wood or not, these dark fairytales torn straight from its pages will haunt you long after you put it down. From girls made of ice who carve their way through the world to clockwork treasures that revolt against their master, these tales are just as dark and bloody as the original Brother’s Grimm, but rather than find morality tales, here there are only tales of power and survival. The perfect read for the long winter nights.

Published: Tor Books - February 12th, 2019

If this book isn't already considered a fantasy classic, it should be. I read the whole thing in less than 24 hours because I couldn't tear it away from me. Addison brings us an unique form of fantasy that manages to be both incredibly high stakes and comfortingly slice of life. I'm devastated it took me this long to read it.
