It feels like Rebecca Podos reached into my soul and pulled out my perfect book. Queer fantasy about Jews! A golem with they/them pronouns! And a story that's complicated and gripping and beautifully written, about family history and love and figuring out who you are. I was completely swept away.

I always looked forward to Rabbi Toba's stories and speeches when I went to synagogue growing up. When I saw she had a book coming out, I was immediately delighted and then unsurprised to find she's just as poignant and interesting written as she is speaking. Her metaphors about God and related spiritual practices are refreshing and interesting, good for non-believers or believers, as well as anyone else curious about the Divine.

Come for the particle physics, stay for the treatise on how racism and sexism have been as pervasive in science as in everything else. A beautiful, brilliant, necessary book.

There is nothing I love more than taking a gendered trope and saying, well, what about trans people? Max is the Magical Boy we've been waiting for, and this book is charming, funny, and full of heart. Here's hoping he can defeat gender dysphoria: the fate of the world depends on it!

I love Kris Ripper's books because ze always shows queer romance doesn't need to conform to the heteronormative template. Can true love conquer all when the person you fall for is married and in an open relationship? Maybe, but it's not going to be easy or simple.

The boys in this book have to deal with antisemitism and homophobia, both internalized and external, in addition to the dybbuk possessing one of them and the murderer(s?) killing off Jewish boys around the Chicago World's Fair. The viciously queer and Jewish book I didn't realize I still needed.

What says "holidays" more than smashing corrupt capitalist overlords? This book contains intense asexual friend crushes, community solidarity, using the media to expose corporate lies, and, of course, rad video game action. It's a romp, but with feelings.

I read this comic in single magazine issues from Comicazi as it came out, and I'm so excited that it's collected and I can finally share it with everyone. NK Jemisin comics writing is as brilliant as her prose, and Jamal Campbell's art is stunning. Far Sector is a poignant look at politics, police brutality, and the power and price of emotions. It may take place on a distant planet, but the story still hits close to home.
