Roshani Chokshi breathes life into this gothic novel centered around fairytales, myth, and the treacherous secrets of a marriage. Wandering the halls of the crumbling House of Dreams, Chokshi spins her tale, interweaving fairy tales into the central narrative amidst broken promises and childhood dreams. This is everything you could possibly wish for in a gothic novel, and the way it slowly approaches the final act will leave you breathless in its downfall.

A delightfully modern retelling of Much Ado About Nothing where two opposites fake date each other to get back at their meddling friends. Chloe Liese designs a humorous and playful romance that made my heart ache. Fantastic neurodivergent and mental health representation, and one of the best romance pairings I have read about in quite some time. Matchmaking with a twist. Perfect for fans of the retelling.

A bright, sparkling holiday rom-com featuring three women that are brought together by the inheritance of a late friend to save her Christmas tree farm. This debut is pure Hallmark, queer, Jewish goodness wrapped up in a single package. It doesn't shy away from showing the difficult side of being home for the holidays alongside the more charming moments. Read for the openly queer characters solving their issues and holiday magic!
While You Were Sleeping, but make it queer! Kiss Her Once for Me is the most chaotic holiday romance I've read, full of holiday warmth and the fraught family gatherings typical to this time of year. A missed connection, a marriage of convenience gone wrong, and sexy cabin times are just a few of the things you can expect from this one. If you like disaster bisexuals trying to find love during the holidays this one is for you.
Legends & Lattes is easily the coziest fantasy novel I have ever read, centered around orc barbarian turned entrepreneur Viv and her trials and tribulations in opening a coffee shop. Travis Baldree serves up a lighthearted and easygoing tale that feels like being wrapped up in a warm blanket with a piping hot cup of coffee. The perfect book for anyone that has ever dreamed of ditching their responsibilities to open up a cafe or bookstore, or is in need of a well-earned escape.
Is this a horror novel? Yes. Is it scary? Yes! But is it also immensely witty with one of the funniest narrative voices I’ve read in a while? Also, yes! The oddball protagonists of this chilling tale had me rooting for them from the jump all the way to a finale I adored and am not likely to forget soon.
“We have not been picked out simply to be abandoned… we are entitled to some direction I would have thought!”
A brilliant exercise in putting tertiary characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet center stage!
This is what I read whenever I’m overwhelmed with existential dread--so I’ve read it quite a few times. It’s an all time favorite. Humor and profundity hold hands throughout in a way I so distinctly remember blew my mind the first time I encountered it. Let this play make you laugh and make you think.
