Mackenzi Lee’s historical YA romp THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE is sure to be one of the biggest books of the summer. With action, wit, and heart, this tale has something for everyone!
Stephen Graham Jones’ novella MAPPING THE INTERIOR is an extremely unsettling story about a young boy haunted by the ghosts of his family, both literally and figuratively. Compelling, searing, and well written, this story will undoubtedly be on my mind for quite some time.
Complex, creative, and diverse, THE HOUSE OF BINDING THORNS is an impressive sequel that tugged on my heartstrings and made me think deeply about racial and cultural politics.
Malinda Lo’s HUNTRESS is great if you’re looking for a slight twist on more traditional YA fantasy fare, but don’t expect too much in the way of world building.
