Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger
Mixed drinks, monsters, and magic!
Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
One of the best fantasy books I have read in years. Go read this. Right now.
Love is Love: a comic book anthology
This book was printed by IDW and DC and all proceeds went to the families of the Pulse nightclub shooting. A devastatingly beautiful book and a touching tribute.
The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher
A hilarious look at the legend behind Leia Organa. Fisher is funny and heartbreaking all at once.
Ms. Marvel vol 4: Last Days
Kamala Khan gets better with every issue I read.
The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace
This poignant book reminded me why I adore poetry.
Kill the Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky
One of the most honest, irreverent, ridiculous books on fan culture I have ever seen. More books like this, please.
Star-Crossed by Barbara Dee
A middle grades book about Shakespeare with a bisexual protagonist. LOVE.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers vol 1
This volume brought back so many memories. I like the direction they are taking things and can't wait to read more.
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
To be honest, most of my Norse mythology knowledge comes from Thor the Marvel canon, so it was really cool to read Gaiman's retelling of the traditional stories. The man has a way with words.
Snotgirl by Bryan Lee O'Malley
With a self-absorbed narrator, this story had me second guessing everything. A weird read, but very compelling.
Saga vol 7 by Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Saga continues to be amazing. Every single time.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Wow. Just wow. Such a powerful story inspired by #BlackLivesMatter. If you read one book this year, make it this one.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
Re-reading this series before the final book comes out. I love this world and these books so much, I can't recommend them enough.
A Court of Mist and Fury
Continuing my re-read before the ACOWAR release. This book is a masterpiece.
The Gentlemen's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
Go. Read. This. Book.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas
Spectacular. An absolutely amazing end to the series.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Scwab
I adored the worldbuilding in this book. Can't wait to read the sequels.
The Wicked + The Divine vol 5: Imperial Phase 1
If you're not reading these graphic novels, what are you doing with your life?
Hounded by Kevin Hearne
I listened to the audio book of this and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a fun modern fantasy series in the vein of The Dresden Files.
Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas
I feel like this is where this series really took off for me. I'll definitely be reading the others.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers vol 1
More campy, Power Ranger-y goodness.
Hexed by Kevin Hearne
Hammered by Kevin Hearne
Norse gods now. Cool.
Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
This book too me what felt like forever to read, but it was so worth it. One of my favorite books of the year, and one of the best, most well-written books I have ever read.
Tricked by Kevin Hearne
Norse gods continued, and some Native ones as well. I like all the mythology in this series.
The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O'Neill
TEA. DRAGONS. I cannot emphasize how cute this book is. Really for all ages, this is something I just want to gift to everyone.
Trapped by Kevin Hearne
This book jumped 12 years in the story timeline. Once I got over that (it took a bit) it was still an enjoyable book to listen to.
All's Faire in Middle School by Victoria Jamieson
Read this book before I gave it to my niece for Christmas. Imogene is learning how to navigate the perils of middle school while also working at the local Renaissance Faire with her parents on the weekends.
Drama by Raina Telgemeier
Read this book before I gave it to my niece for Christmas. As a theater kid since the age of 7, I found this insanely relatable and an ov erall great read.
