Fantasy &Fiction

The Girl of Fire & Thorns
Rae Carson

"Must read if you love strong character development, unique world-building, and large themes made personal."

Lost and Found
Orson Scott Card

An Ember in the Ashes
Sabaa Tahir

Kara Swanson

"Gorgeous Peter Pan retelling with the perfect amount of heartache, magic, flying, and boyish grinning."

The Hundred Thousand...
N.K. Jemisin

...Kingdoms "Rich fantasy world with cruel rivals, unique gods, and high stakes. Family was never so complicated."

All the Crooked Saints
Maggie Stiefvater

"Mystical stand-alone with prose that sucked me in. Every reader will find a character who shares their 'darkness.'"

Six of Crows
Leigh Bardugo

"Full of lovable, morally grey thieves who all need the money. Great banter, character dynamics, and plot twists!"

The Inheritance Games
Jennifer Lynn Barnes

"Knives Out but with four handsome brothers, puzzles, and sooo many cliffhangers. I immediately bought book 2."



The Host
Stephenie Meyer

"Wow. Stunning world-building and characters that make you wonder if aliens deserve our planet more than we do."

Cinder (TLC)
Marissa Meyer

"This series grabs you and won't let go. Diverse females, creative parallels with classic fairy tales, and high-stakes."



World of Wonders
Aimee Nezhukumatatil

"Captivating creative non-fiction that romanticizes the natural world and intertwines narrative with observation."

The Road
Cormac McCarthy

"This post-apocalyptic journey is not for the faint of heart. How far is a father willing to go to preserve his son's innocence?"

The Boy, The Mole...
Charlie Mackesy

...the Fox and the Horse. "A perfect inspirational book with heartfelt quotes and wholesome characters."

Teen Titans: Raven
Kami Garcia

"Wonderful take on the classic Teen Titans heroine! A fast-paced graphic novel with stunning artwork."

Pride and Prejudice
Jane Austen

"I was not prepared to laugh as much as I did. Relatable characters, wit galore, and amazing heart."

As You Wish
Cary Elwes

"My favorite read of 2022 so far. It was an absolute delight to listen to the behind-the-scenes of my favorite movie. It warmed my heart and made me laugh."


My All-time Favorites

This is the only section that will not be swapped regularly. These are the books that I personally believe everyone and their mom should read. I hope you'll be able to find as much joy (and maybe heartache) in them as I did. 

Ender's Game
Orson Scott Card

"Intense sci-fi you can’t stop reading as things get morally gray. Incredible character psychology and emotion."

The Scorpio Races
Maggie Stiefvater

"A dangerous but alluring island, personal stakes, and gorgeous prose make this story so special to me. These characters make me feel so deeply."

Matthew J. Kirby

"Not all protagonists need to scream the loudest or act rashly to have strength. A beautiful story with heart and power."
