What are some of your favorite books Krissy?
As with fanfic, I tend to pick a few favorite authors and read whatever they publish.
Right now those authors are Tamora Pierce, N.K. Jemisin, Seanan McGuire.
I’m really interested in purchasing Dread Nation by Justina Ireland when it comes out.
Lately a book I can’t stop thinking about is Roller Girl by Vanessa North. It was so hot…. it was sooooooooooooo hot.
Next on my kindle queue is River of Teeth, which has a premise so intriguing that I’m genuinely excited to sink my teeth into it.
And after that is Hunger Makes the Wolf, which has a premise and a main character that make me feel, em, como se dice, gay. Motorcycle fire witches on a desert planet? Yeah, I’m in.
If I had to pick a book that I think everyone should read, it’s Kushiel’s Dart.
An underrated book is Santa Olivia, which is about a genetically enhanced superhuman girl in a military-occupied town in Mexico. It’s got some superhero and werewolf vibes, and the protagonist is queer, she saves the town and gets the girl.
I’m trying to read more poetry but reading is hard and I’m perpetually tired.
