What Moves the Dead

What Moves the Dead

T. Kingfisher

$14.99 $13.94

Really great retelling of Fall of the House of Usher. I love the new characters, fungus, and takes on the characters. Matches the vibe/atmosphere of Poe perfectly.

Ninth House

Ninth House

Leigh Bardugo

$18.99 $17.66

I am so late to this game, but I really didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. I thought it was so well executed, great worldbuilding, well done characters. I was entranced from beginning to end. My favorite of hers so far for sure!

The Woman in Me

The Woman in Me

Britney Spears

$32.99 $30.68

The best selling celebrity memoir of all time for a reason. This woman has been through SO MUCH & I will now defend her with my life forever more. Michelle Williams does an AMAZING job reading the audiobook, I hope she does more!

Travis Baldree

I loved this one even more than the first. Perhaps because I own a bookshop & relate to it more. But also, this one has a more overt plot while staying in the same chill vibes. Highly recommend!

The Water Outlaws

The Water Outlaws

S. L. Huang

$28.99 $26.96

This is a long book and took me forever to read, but I really fell in love with the bandits of Liangshan, and the second half of the book is packed with action. Worth a read for sure, especially if you like Chinese martial arts!

The Dawnhounds

The Dawnhounds

Sascha Stronach

$17.99 $16.73

Really liked this book! Unique worldbuilding, great characters, interesting magic system. Will definitely read the next one!

Thornhedge

T. Kingfisher

$19.99 $18.59

A delightful take on the "princess in a tower" fairy tale trope, in true T. Kingfisher style. Compelling characters & excellent worldbuilding. If you loved Nettle & Bone, you definitely don't want to miss this one!

The Membranes

The Membranes

Ta-Wei Chi

$20.40

Would have never picked this up on my own (read for book club), & I'm glad I did! Written in the 90s but you'd never know, it felt so modern. Excellent worldbuilding, surprising twists. Will be thinking about it for a long time!

How to Sell a Haunted House

How to Sell a Haunted House

Grady Hendrix

$18.00 $16.74

This might be my favorite Hendrix book yet! The layers of family drama and creepy doll horror make for an excellent combination! And the audiobook reader did a voice for Pupkin that haunts my dreams.

The Faithless

The Faithless

C L Clark

$18.99 $17.66

The banger of a sequel to The Unbroken. Mostly about Luca's journey to the throne, but also I LOVED Pruett's & Fili's side stories. Touraine still...being Touraine lol And the addition of sword lesbian Durfort is FIRE. Can't wait for book 3!

The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches

The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches

Sangu Mandanna

$17.00 $15.81

LOVED this found family, romantic, cozy fantasy about a witch looking for a place to belong. Same vibes as Legends & Lattes and House in the Cerulean Sea! It was really charming and sweet and wonderful.

A Dowry of Blood

A Dowry of Blood

S. T. Gibson

$17.99 $16.73

The most seductive audiobook I've ever listened to. Both the prose and the reader's voice are quite sexy and dangerous, and it leaves you with the feeling of being drunk on Dracula's blood. But make no mistake: this is a feminist story that sees Dracula's partners wanting to be free and willing to do whatever it takes.

The Adventures of Amina Al-Sirafi: A New Fantasy Series Set a Thousand Years Before the City of Brass

The Adventures of Amina Al-Sirafi: A New Fantasy Series Set a Thousand Years Before the City of Brass

Shannon Chakraborty

$32.00 $29.76

LOVED this pirate adventure story! Protagonist is an older woman going on one last adventure, & she is BADASS AF. Super fun, & the audiobook was extremely well done! One of my favorite reads of 2023!

Everyone in My Family Has Killed Someone: A Murdery Mystery Novel

Everyone in My Family Has Killed Someone: A Murdery Mystery Novel

Benjamin Stevenson

$18.99 $17.66

I really loved this audiobook! This mystery novel is very tongue-in-cheek, breaks the fourth wall, parodies Agatha Christie, and even though the narrator lays out everything for you, it's still somehow surprising. The tone reminded me a lot of the movie Clue. It felt like a friend telling me a story. Super entertaining! One of my favorite reads of 2023! I'm already listening to the sequel.
