One of the most real books I’ve read about trans teens, which is saying something since it takes place in a fascinating and unique fantasy world. Wyatt is the sharp-edged scowly protagonist I didn’t know I was waiting for. Great for fans of Cemetery Boys and Seanan McGuire!

This romance novel is one of the queerest I've read, and considering my tastes, that's saying something. The romance is between a cis bisexual man and a genderqueer person. "Normal" relationships haven't historically worked for either of them, but they really like each other. The solution? They might have to actually communicate about their wants, needs, and past traumas.

If you want both scathing deconstruction of colonialism in a fantasy setting and extremely good sexual (and political/social) tension between a soldier and her princess, you are going to love this book so much. It's a story brimming with good intentions and terrible decisions, and I can't get enough of it.

Every single word of this is like a scalpel wielded by an expert surgeon. It would take an entire book length of words to describe how it made me feel, so why not just read the book instead? (Or the audiobook, which is read MASTERFULLY by the amazing Xe Sands.) CW: child and spousal abuse

From the moment Ash was asked about pronouns and said "he/him, I guess", I knew I was reading a story that would be special. Not everyone knows their gender immediately. Some people struggle, and wish there was a way to be sure, like Ash does. Girl Haven is about the magic of finding queer friends, figuring out your identity even when there is no "correct" answer, and, of course, the magic of adventuring in another world with talking animals and actual magic.

This book has all the bitter sweet friendship changes of Roller Girl plus the thrilling exploits, morally ambiguous antiheroes of a Catwoman comic. And so many cats!! Each one with their own special skills, and each one out to make trouble. It's delightful.
