EIGHT DNFs this month, including, alas, four of my most anticipated releases!
A maybe-fantastical historical novel in Tsarist Russia, and a beautiful but horrifying queer awakening in a magical dystopia.
Snake aliens and souls and my first six-star read of 2024!!!
Most of this collection wasn’t for me, but the stories that were make the whole book worth it.
Gods carved into living bones; disappointing dragons; very bad military decisions; boring dryads; and letters I kept falling asleep reading.
A ghost and three witches walk into a bar…to solve a murder.
Chinese bandits taking on the Empire; a world where eating is taboo and sex is casual; and midwives with otherworldly powers!
Listen: it’s not SFF. It is the Wild West.
But it’s so, SO great!
When your sibling is kidnapped by the Empire, obviously you go after them.
Even when the Empire’s capital is a giant flying black rhombus with way too many assholes in it.
Living stars, nonbinary assassins, and fairy-narrated sapphic romance – alas, these three didn’t work out for me.
