“Rebecca Roanhorse… [is one] of the Indigenous novelists reshaping North American science fiction, horror and fantasy — genres in which Native writers have long been overlooked.” (The New York Times)
"It was a beautiful book, and a terrible, powerful book. It spoke glorious images and gave form to the awful truths humans have shaped with hate and rage and fear. It's a storyteller's story, and yet change blue to black and brown to white and it's a piece of contemporary news. There is quiet magic in Strange the Dreamer, and under all the ugly truth, there is hope and there is love." - April White
"Jennifer L. Armentrout is a master of weaving rich contemporary realism with magic and mayhem. Her characters will grab hold of your heart and refuse to let go. Every page left me wanting more."—New York Times bestselling author Brigid Kemmerer
“Amy Harmon writes romance like Steven Spielberg makes movies. She hints, she teases, she gives subtle clues. A touch. A longing. A glance. You know it’s there, and you know it’s coming. But when the shark finally jumps out of the water and eats the boat, you are still left with your mouth hanging open, and you can’t stop reading.” —One Man Book Blog
"Currently reading - and excellent so far." - April eWhite
"This audiobook was a gift from my 17 year old son, who heard about the series from Patrick Rothfuss. It was excellent! Just short enough to finish in one good bout of house-cleaning, with an utterly compelling narrator (and narration). I'm now on book three and I still love it. Perfect for fans of any great first-person narrator in any genre, though enjoying sci-fi is a bonus." - April White
" I don't do zombies.
This one was worth the step outside my comfort zone to find out it's not actually a zombie story. It's a human story.
A very human story." - April White
On my TBR just because of the Murderbot Diaries.
"Penny Reid writes people I would be friends with. She gives them big vocabularies, better-than-average self-awareness, excellent senses of humor, and enormous capacities to grow and change as people.
Penny's people have depth, they have character and integrity, and they don't make the same mistakes twice. They aren't looking for love when they stumble over it, and their discoveries of each other let us invest in their relationships as they build - slowly, and in real time, with all the nonsense real people bring to the table.
But the best part of Penny's people is that they fall for each other with the kind of lovely, slow-burn intensity that makes for the best kind of romance - the kind that lives beyond the pages in the hearts and minds and hopes and dreams of its readers.
Oh, and ... Cletus." - April White

"It happens sometimes that your heart fills so full that it spills down your face and steals your breath and sounds like sobs. And sometimes tears fill your throat and prickle your nose as you lie in the dark long after the story is done. And the tears are made of joy and hope and love and family, and they leave you feeling full instead of empty - that happens sometimes too.
It happened this time. " - April White
“Readers may have the impression that they’re enjoying a typical rom-com, but unexpected decisions open the way for a welcome twist we didn’t even know we needed.” —Booklist
