I am just. Wow. This was terrible and heartbreaking and ten levels of crushing, but it was also . . . pretty perfect for this series. It’s the type of book that makes me want to write fanfiction. I just need more of these characters, this world, this story. Even though it’s a perfect ending, … Continue reading Eclipse the Skies by Maura Milan: A Heartbreaking but Perfect Ending (spoiler-free)
Today I'm so excited to host the cover reveal for Spellhacker--the sophomore novel from one of my favorite authors, M.K. England! Their debut The Disasters published last year and it was such a fun and queer space adventure full of high stakes and a loveable found family, I'm immensely excited to read their next book! … Continue reading Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Spellhacker, M.K. England’s Genre-Bending Sophomore Novel ✨
I read Contagion last year (spoilers ahead for Contagion, book 1, of course!) and enjoyed it, but frankly, I don’t think I appreciated this series enough back then. I think Contagion and the sequel Immunity bring something special to YA’s science fiction table. I’d categorize it as crossover fiction, branching YA and adult well. I … Continue reading Immunity by Erin Bowman: An Underappreciated Sci-Fi Thriller Duology

Today's Writer Wednesday post features … Continue reading Writer Wednesday: Character Interview with Characters from Rory Power’s Wilder Girls (+INTL Giveaway!)
I've been working on this post mentally for a very long time. Thinking of If You Liked . . . recommendations can be hard enough sometimes, but thinking of quadruplets can be hair-pulling. Which is why this is definitely not going to be a monthly feature. However, I've had these recommendations stewing around in my … Continue reading Four Book Quadruplets, aka Grouped Book Recommendations on Steroids
To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed in myself. I’ve only read three and a half (half for Don’t Date Rosa Santos, which I’m in the middle of reading) Latinx books so far this year. Which can be a lot, but once you factor in the fact that all four are ARCs and that I’ve … Continue reading Latinx Science-Fiction & Fantasy You HAVE to Pick Up!
My review of An Anatomy of Beasts just went up yesterday, but today I'm really excited to bring to you an interview with the author, Olivia A. Cole!

We're talking all sorts of … Continue reading Writer Wednesday: Author Interview with Olivia A. Cole on An Anatomy of Beasts (+Giveaway!)
I’ve been hyping this book up for myself for over a year, and I can’t believe it’s finally here! I absolutely adored reading A Conspiracy of Stars last year and have been anticipating this sequel for so long, so I’m so so happy that it’s in my hands now! Ahh! (Psst! There are a few … Continue reading An Anatomy of Beasts by Olivia A. Cole: Other Planets, Colonialization, and A Rich New World
There were so many awesome sci-fi novels coming out this month, and I can't help but throw some recommendations out and comps so you know whether you want to check them out or not! There are so many different branches of sci-fi that I feel like a lot of people don't recognize, from near-future to … Continue reading If You Liked. . . #14: YA Science-Fiction Edition
