Published: Avon Impulse - July 28th, 2020

This was an instant favorite comfort read for me, with its slow-burn friends-to-lovers historical romance between two women in their 40s: a printing press owner and a bee-keeper. Olivia Waite ingeniously crafts realistic happily-ever-afters for queer characters in her historical romances - even with marriage off the table, her characters find a way to make meaningful commitments to each other.

Published: Harper Voyager - June 13th, 2017

This is a sci-fi/fantasy/speculative fiction that takes place in near-future South Africa and has world-building myths with gods and demigoddesses and a trip to the world of the dead but also a genetically altered hallucinogenic drug that turns people into giant animals and a robot uprising and a political campaign and a transgender pop star and a m/m couple and all of them are connected. It’s bonkers. Like, so, so absolutely mind-breaking weird. And I loved it.

Published: Akashic Books - October 3rd, 2017

This book - a slave narrative in space- was haunting, horrifying, disturbing, dark, but so, so good. The character’s voices were so specific and clear, the relationships so clearly affected by circumstance and yet loving in the ways they could be. This book paints a picture of an ugly world, whose characters still have to live, and still each have their own small reasons to keep on trying. It's also my favorite representation of gender outside binary in any book. Even set on a futuristic spaceship, this book is incredibly grounded in the injustices of our world and ends with a seed of hope.
