Diana Wynne Jones$9.99 $9.19
I'm obsessed with this 1980s British suburban sort-of-retelling of the Tam Lin story. The plot is a complicated puzzle to work out, and it perfectly captures the feelings of being a young person surrounded by dysfunctional adults.
Vivek Shraya$21.95 $20.19
The best novel I've read in a long time. Vivek Shraya combines friendship, Twitter, celebrity culture, and post-colonial theory into a perfect, brilliant, complicated thing that works beautifully and leaves you asking yourself all the hard questions.
Charlie Jane Anders$15.99 $14.71
This all-too-possible speculative fiction book about technology features some of my favorite things: flawed main characters who pretty much do their best, a smartly-built plot, and a perfect ending.
Becky Chambers$17.99 $16.55
A utopian almost-fable of a crew of lovable misfits on an unlikely mission across space-time.
Kevin Kwan$16.00 $14.72
Every page had something to either make my jaw drop or make me laugh out loud. Super entertaining. The sequels are just as good.
Yaa Gyasi$16.95 $15.59
A brilliant novel about intergenerational trauma.
Tommy Orange$28.00 $25.76
Also a brilliant novel about intergenerational trauma.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie$16.95 $15.59
Reading this book was like getting to have an hours-long conversation with your smartest friend about everything important.
Ursula K. Le Guin$15.99 $14.71
What if the moon were full of anarchists? Leguin's classic holds up, decades later, still changing lives.
Kij Johnson$15.99 $14.71
This novella's a dreamy, feminist reimagination of Lovecraft, following a woman and a cat on a slow-motion chase through strange landscapes, with a surprise ending.
Chana Porter$25.00 $23.00
Short and dream-like—what if an alien consciousness took over humanity and tried really hard to make us happy, despite us not really knowing what that is?
Tamsyn Muir$17.99 $16.55
Hilarious macabre full of tough-ass queer teens solving puzzles and hacking at animated skeletons in a haunted mansion in space. Unlike anything else and completely delightful.
Maggie Tokuda-Hall$18.98 $17.46
A fantastic, new, swashbuckling, anti-colonial queer YA romantic fantasy.
