Every one of Julie Murphy’s books that I’ve read, I’ve fallen in love with. So when I read the premise of A Merry Little Meet Cute, I was smitten.
Patricia Briggs’ Soul Taken, the 13th Mercy Thompson book, is a high stakes, contemporary fantasy with lots of action humor, and tenderness.
Sunyi Dean’s debut, The Book Eaters, is a dark, contemporary fantasy that takes a brutally hard look at women’s place in society, motherhood, the patriarchy, and love.
Gina Chen’s debut fantasy, Violet Made of Thorns, is a richly imagined world of seers, curses, and princes rich with fairytale vibes.
A STRANGE AND STUBBORN ENDURANCE by Foz Meadows is a gorgeously written mash-up of fantasy, political intrigue, mystery, and queer romance.
This is a sweet southern charmer of a story that’s compulsively readable. As they navigate, family drama, ex hell, and crazy stalkers, you’ll be rooting for Hannah and Jake.
A Poisonous Page by Kitt Crowe is a fun, frothy, quick read with a twisty mystery, lots of suspects and light romance.
WHAT MOVES THE DEAD by T. Kingfisher is a retelling of the classic short story “The Fall of the House of Usher” by Edgar A. Poe.
Juniper and Thorn is dark fantasy, beautiful, magical, and horrific – an intense and gorgeous read.
