Dread Nation by Justina Ireland

Dread Nation was an incredibly compelling read with young characters but definitely appeals to a much wider audience. Justina Ireland delivers a brilliant novel that tackles so many world issues that you will want to truly pay attention. I absolutely cannot wait to read the sequel to see more of this horrifying world.

The Dead and the Dark by Courtney Gould

The Dead and the Dark is a wonderful, not so scary, queer ghost story. I absolutely loved the Dark in this book and the “humans are the real monster” dread that came through the entire novel. Courtney Gould definitely delivered in the atmosphere in this creepy rural Oregon town. Can’t wait for more of Gould’s books!

Wicked Fox by Kat Cho

Wicked Fox is a delightfully fluffy read with just the right balance of twists, turns, and cheesy drama without being overwhelming and tacky. Kat Cho did a wonderful job keeping me on my toes and weaving in Korean folklore. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a lighter read. It was so fun!

Spark to Shadow by Atima Kim

★★★★★
This is a book that I wish I had as I was growing up, but I sure am glad it is a book that exists today that I can enjoy. It has all the fun that I need in a YA or New Adult book, and all the inclusivity and positivity that is often missing from far too many books. I absolutely cannot wait for the second book!!

No Gods, No Monsters by Cadwell Turnbull

★★★★★
No Gods, No Monsters is an incredibly inclusive story about othering, oppression, police violence, connection and how we stay safe and fight back. Though it is heavy at times, and there are many characters to follow, it is absolutely a wonderful work of art.

Legendborn by Tracy Deonn

★★★★★
Legendborn is incredible, and it is important. It is a story based on Arthurian Legend, with some major dark academia vibes thrown in that tackles so many important topics, but doesn’t forget to take you on an adventure that will make you laugh.
