01

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

The world-building in this story is so rich and immense. I highly recommend it for lovers of fantasy.  

 

02

Robyn Hood ILNY by Lou Iovino

This is one of the first maxi-series I edited and it finally has been released in paperback!

 

03

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

This is one of my favorite early-2000s YA books! I decided to re-read the series to see if it hold up and it was just as much fun as I remember!

04

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

I love fae stories and this one sucked my right in. A human living in the realms of faerie has to learn how to survive. Plus all the angst was really 

05

Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

This is in the running for favorite books of the year, and it's still only February. A sci-fi firefly-esque romp based loosely on the movie Anastasia? What more could I ask for! 

06

Saga Vol. 8 by Brian K. Vaughan 

Saga continues to be amazing No surprises there! 
 

07

Believe Me by Eddie Izzard 

I listened to the audiobook version of this and I'm so glad I did. Eddie Izzard reads it himself and often strays from the main story with wonderful tangents full of bonus musings and other thoughts. 

08

Tempests and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce 

I feel like I've been waiting for this book for forever! Readers finally get Numair's backstory and so far it promises to be an amazing series. 

09

The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang

This graphic novel is absolutely amazing. The illustrations are just so great and the story about a prince who just wants to wear fabulous dresses and his best friend seamstress will have you rooting for both of them. 

 

10

Grimm Fairy Tales Legacy by Joe Brusha 

This is the big revival of Grimm Fairy Tales Volume 2. 

11

Puerto Rico Strong Anthology by Various

There are so many amazing writers, artists, colorists, and letterers on this project. It's a beautiful book. And all proceeds went towards helping Puerto Rico in the ongoing aftermath of Hurricane Maria. 

 

12

Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova

Such a fantastic story about Alejandra, a girl from a family of Brujas, who needs to travel to the land of Los Lagos after a canto goes wrong during her deathday celebration.

13

Runaways Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan 

I can't believe I hadn't read this until now! A group of teens are on the run after finding out their parents are a group of supervillains. But the group starts to find out they have powers of their own. Can't wait to read the rest.

 

14

Grimoire of the Lamb by Kevin Hearne

A short story/novella set before the events of the first Iron Druid book. I listen to the audio books of these and I love them! 

15

Clan Rathskeller by Kevin Hearne

Another Iron Druid short story that takes place before the first book.

16

Caraval by Stephanie Garber 

This has been on my to-read list forever and I'm so glad I finally got around to it! Such a rich, colorful world with surprises constantly. I'm glad the second book comes out soon! 

17

Fun Home by Alison Bechdel

Something I should have read a long time ago. This graphic novel is by turns funny and sad, but it is always thought-provoking. 
 

18

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

I saw the movie for this first (something I hardly ever do) and was completely enchanted by it. The book was also delightful and  I'm glad I experienced both forms of the story. 

19

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I love heist stories and had been wanting to read this for a while, but hadn't read the Grisha Trilogy yet. I still haven't, but had no problem following the plot or world building. This was a fantastic story with amazing characters.

20

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas

This novella was the perfect glimpse into what the characters have been going through since ACOWAR. I can't wait until the next book!

21

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Such a vibrant story with complex characters and a magic system and folklore that blew me away.
