Laura @ The Book Corps and the review of The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood
Laura shares a review of one of the newest f/f fantasy
“The Unspoken Name has everything I love in fantasy books: badass female assassins, a smouldering f/f slow burn romance, a self-destructive gay who just wants to be loved, and a chance to become a martyr for a god … and then deciding to join the villain for a life of pleasure and rebellion instead.”
Holly @ The Grimdragon and the review of Upright Women Wanted by Sarah Gailey
Holly shares a review of a queer horseback librarians’ tale
“Upright Women Wanted is an intoxicating blend of near-future dystopia, horse opera & queer subversion with librarian spies, bandits & fighting back against a fascist government. It’s also so wonderfully filled with hope.”
Nikita @ Prose & Pancakes and the review of The Mighty Heart of Sunny St. James by Ashley Herring Blake
Nikita shares a review of a girl living her life after the heart transplant
“I also adored this book because it shows what Sunny feels like about her new life after the heart transplant and with her biological mother showing up after eight years. She is hurt and she has so many questions, and she worries that she’d come off as ungrateful for her new heart, and she even acknowledges that it’s hard to wrap your mind around it all.”
Sammie @ The Writerly Way and the review of Dread Nation by Justina Ireland
Sammie shares a review alternate Civil War history and zombies
“Dread Nation is a mix of zombie horror and social commentary. The main character, Jane, is a thrilling mixture of proud and sarcastic, written in a voicy way that had me falling for her from the very start. I just devoured this book. But not in a zombie way. I promise.”
Rach @ Anxious Nachos and the review of The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith
Rach shares a review of hell’s library
“This book is SO. FUN. I went in thinking wow, what a cool concept, and then it nailed everything and I’m so happy that a book I was anticipating lived up to all my hopes and dreams! Not only is this a fun, queer fantasy about angels and demons and librarians, but it is funny and snarky and I loved it.”
