Akwaeke Emezi$27.00 $24.84
Akwaeke does it again. What can a mortal do but bear witness to the painful beauty of a god claiming their power?
Marjorie Liu$16.95 $15.59
PRE-ORDER ME! Currently reading - a short fiction collection of dark fantasy stories and a novella from the author of Monstress.
Casey McQuiston$16.99 $15.63
A sweet and sexy time-travel queer romance. Not my usual genre, but I was hooked and read of most it in one sitting! I especially appreciated the themes of found family and self-discovery.
Becky Chambers$20.99 $19.31
PRE-ORDER ME! This optimistic solarpunk novella was like a ray of sunshine on my heart. Anyone feeling burnt out, alone, or unsure of their direction in life will appreciate this one - I know it was exactly what I needed.
Danielle Evans$27.00 $24.84
I already knew that I liked short story collections, but I'd recommend this one in a heartbeat to folks who aren't yet sold on the format. Danielle Evans is a master of her craft and each story is better than the last. The titular novella is one of the best things I've read all year.
Yaa Gyasi$27.95 $25.71
An intimate family story that explores immigration, addiction, depression, and faith. I can't stop handselling this one!
Samantha Shannon$20.00 $18.40
Standalone epic fantasy with a diverse cast, F/F romance, and glorious worldbuilding. This is THE fantasy novel I wish I had growing up.
Akwaeke Emezi$27.00 $24.84
Everything Akwaeke Emezi writes is spiritual experience. This book will break your heart, but not for the reasons you may expect.
Sarah Gailey$20.99 $19.31
Short, sweet, a little bloody, and very queer - this book was a delight. Bonus points for anti-fascist themes and a compelling dystopian Wild West vibe. My only complaint was that I didn’t want the story to end!
Carmen Maria Machado$16.00 $14.72
Machado experiments with form in her memoir of an abusive relationship. A rare treasure and a favorite 2019 publication, I feel like my own words can't do it justice.
Robert Jackson Bennett$17.00 $15.64
Foundryside is a heist story populated by a found family of thieves, featuring expert worldbuilding, a unique magic system, anti-capitalist themes, AND a subtle F/F romance. Also, one of the best characters is a sentient inanimate object. Honestly, what more could you ask for?
Emily M. Danforth and Sara Lautman$27.99 $25.75
Spooky, sapphic, and very meta, Plain Bad Heroines was the perfect atmospheric Halloween read. This was a surprisingly deft blend of Victorian Gothic horror and contemporary Hollywood drama.
Shirley Jackson and Thomas Ott$17.00 $15.64
"My name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. I am eighteen years old, and I live with my sister Constance. I have often thought that with any luck at all I could have been born a werewolf, because the two middle fingers on both my hands are the same length, but I have had to be content with what I had. I dislike washing myself, and dogs, and noise, I like my sister Constance, and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cap mushroom. Everyone else in my family is dead." I'm convinced this opening paragraph is one of the best of all time.
Jenny Odell$17.99 $16.55
This book was a comfort to me in the early weeks of quarantine. I expected something of an anti-technology screed and was instead treated to a manifesto of sorts on the importance of reconnecting to nature and community when capitalism (in all its forms) is constantly battling for our attention.
Maria Dahvana Headley$15.00 $13.80
A more lyrical, more contemporary (without losing the sense of time and place), nuanced translation that still captured the magic of a first-time read. I hope they start teaching this version in high schools.
How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us about Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence
Michael Pollan$18.00 $16.56
In which Michael Pollan explores the history of psychedelic drugs and documents his own (later in life) experiences with LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, and DMT. Well-researched and surprisingly vulnerable.
Raven Leilani$26.00 $23.92
Like Marie Kondo, do you love mess? If so - this one's for you. Raven Leilani writes a truly compelling protagonist, cringe-y and loveable in equal measure. The razor-sharp prose in this debut novel has me eager for Leilani's next work.
Star Spinner Tarot: (Inclusive, Diverse, LGBTQ Deck of Tarot Cards, Modern Version of Classic Tarot Mysticism)
One of the most beautiful, fantastical decks I own. Diverse and inclusive, with multiple Lovers cards to reflect LGBTQ+ romantic relationships.
Ricardo Cavolo$24.95 $22.95
A boldly illustrated deck great for readers wanting to challenge themselves with new iconography outside the Rider-Smith-Waite canon.

A gorgeous, diverse deck using traditional symbolism - appropriate for those new to tarot!
