My Sister, the Serial Killer

Oyinkan Braithwaite

$16.00 $14.88

A short and fierce read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Who knew murder could be so funny and sometimes, touching. Full of sibling rivalry and fun family drama. I blasted through this book because every chapter is just a page or two long, and written like a dagger through the heart.

Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah

$14.99 $13.94

This debut collection is darkly magical, wildly surreal, and also the realest shit I've ever read. Adjei-Brenyah makes us question what is really more absurd: the fantastical worlds he creates, or the violent and and depraved world we actually live in. These stories will continue to haunt and smolder within me for a long, long time.

Lindsey Drager

This one is short, but is also a read that's nice to sit with. It blends together astronomy, fairy tales, stories of sibling relationships, and the preservation of queer stories and voices. It is absolutely gorgeous.
