Plain Bad Heroines was not just up my alley, but had packed a bag and moved into my bedroom. A short list of things you’ll find in this novel; curses, lesbians, gilded-age society scandals, yellow jackets, a heaping dose of snark, multiple narratives that weave together beautifully, footnotes, historic queer icons, and the nagging sense that the line between what’s real and what isn’t has been blurred.This is the sort of New England Gothic that I can never get enough of. It’s the perfect autumn read for you and your best friend that you’re secretly in love with, trust me.

I don't think I'm alone in saying that there is something comforting about hearing about the end of the universe, and there's no one better to tell you about it than Dr. Katie Mack. This book is told with the conversational humor that can only come from someone that is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but also incredibly passionate about a subject. Dr Mack brings us through six ways the universe can end, some far off, and some that could happen at any moment. This is the perfect book for anyone with a morbid sense of curiosity who loves the stars.

Published: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers - February 4th, 2020

Once & Future is a fast-paced, fun, and witty space fantasy. Ari is a refugee from the planet Ketch, an outlaw running from the tyrannical Mercer corporation, and, oh yeah, the 42nd reincarnation of King Arthur. A queer retelling of a classic myth where the Big Bad is Fantasy-Amazon, this book checks all my boxes. It is filled with hope and family and heart-wrenching friendships, this is a book about rising up against powers and governments that seem insurmountable. Definitely a book I will be revisiting this month.

THIS. BOOK. I started this book and said that I was just going to read two chapters and then do something responsible, and instead I made it ten chapters and 100 pages before I was able to rip my eyes away from the page. This book is perfect for people who want something thrilling but not too scary. With patriarchal threads from The Handmaid’s Tale (and our own society), a puritanical setting, and a vibe that reminded me of the VVitch, this is a ‘carve out a day and don’t plan on moving until you’re done’ kind of book.
