The Dead Romantics
If you enjoyed Meet Me in the Margins, then you’ll love The Dead Romantics.
“A very funny charming take on the rom-com. I expected something a bit darker when the description included a romance ghost-writer who no longer believes in love, a family owned funeral home with a death in the family, and a clash with a new publisher. The protagonist does break the romance wall a bit by mocking her own distrust of HEA and the pull ghostly romantic interests. NO spoilers just a heads up--you will laugh, with fingers crossed!”Lindalu, Wesleyan RJ Julia Bookstore
The Once and Future Witches
“Alix Harrow’s The Ten Thousand Doors of January was my favorite book last year, so I had incredibly high expectations when I picked up The Once and Future Witches. This book is very different, but I adore it just as much! Set in the late 1800s in a world with a slightly alternate history from ours, women are fighting for the vote and losing. Three wayward sisters decide to challenge the patriarchy by bringing back witchcraft. Told through familiar stories twisted in new ways, this book is incredible. You will not be able to put it down, from the beautifully written introduction to the pulse-pounding ending!”Carrie Deming, Dog Ear Books

A Rip Through Time
Rip Through Time Novels: Book #1
“It's a time travel story, it's a police procedural story, it's the beginning of two strong friendships and probably a highly addictive series. Armstrong's devotees will be thrilled to watch this intelligent author pulling apart our assumptions about middle-class Victorian society (with a running gag involving how modern phrases sound to very early forensic scientists), and fans of Laurie King's Mary Russell books will be excited to discover a new, strong female lead with razor logic and winning honesty. There are some familiar tropes, and the first couple of chapters, while sympathetic, don't seem to offer anything really new...but hold on. The coffee is just percolating. The twists to come are worthy of an Old Town Edinburgh setting!”Nialle, The Haunted Bookshop

If you enjoyed There There, then you’ll love Firekeeper's Daughter.
“Firekeeper's Daughter is a wonder! We so rarely hear YA through an Indigenous people's voice and this book does it so very well. Main character Daunis Lorenzo Fontaine lives a fine line between her white French Canadian mother and her Ojibwe father in a complicated family dynamic. She is smart, hockey talented, driven, and tenacious as she navigates the murder of her best friend Lily, rampant drug culture, and the journey to find herself. Angeline Boulley seamlessly incorporates the Ojbiwe language and lifeways that both inform and educate the reader in this amazing story that will stay with me long after I have moved onto other books. A MUST-read (or listen)!”Rebecca, Rediscovered Books
“Written in the exquisite lyrical manner that Anna-Marie McLemore does better than anyone, Lakelore is a vibrant and sensitive exploration of gender identity and neurodivergence. Their writing is always luminous and honest; their use of magical realism is powerful; and their deftness and care in writing about ADHD, Dyslexia, bullying, trans, and non-binary lives is excellent. I listened on Libro.fm and it was a delightfully multi-sensory experience between the illustrative writing and talented voice actors.”Ashleigh, Wellesley Books
The Golden Swift
“Just as good if not better than the first book, The Silver Arrow! Adults could learn a lot by reading this book, too. Kate and Tom grapple with relatable personal issues, along with trying to save the world and its creatures via their magical train. This time, they meet up with another pair of young conductors, and learn hard and important lessons along the way. Listening to the audio version was such a treat- audiobooks ARE reading, too! ”Jen, Townie Books
The Silver Arrow
“So great! For fans of every good, classic story for the young and the young-at-heart, reminiscent of Roald Dahl, C.S. Lewis and J.K. Rowling, with powerful-yet-accessible-to-children commentary on the state of our Earth and the creatures that inhabit it. Please, Lev, please, write more! The audio version is phenomenal! ”Jen, Townie Books
The Sign for Home
“Unforgettable and completely unique! Fell illuminates DeafBlind life in Arlo Dilly, who will steal your heart as he journeys to experience life and independence, and to break free of those who have been holding him back. A must read!”Maxwell Gregory, Madison Street Books
Remarkably Bright Creatures
If you enjoyed The Midnight Library, then you’ll love Remarkably Bright Creatures.
“A heartfelt story about challenging assumptions and healing from trauma with a fun cast of characters set in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. Tova is a kind-hearted, stubborn, and ultimately courageous heroine whose friendship with an octopus (one of the story's narrators!) helps to awaken a new chapter of life with connection, love, and adventure. Shelby Van Pelt's debut novel is funny, touching, and ultimately life-affirming.”Jeffrey, Riverstone Books
The Last Cuentista
“Twelve year old Petra Peña has always dreamed of becoming a Cuentista (a storyteller). When she wakes up from 500 years in cryosleep to a community of brainwashed people, Petra is different; she still has her memories from Earth, and she is full of stories from the past...The Last Cuentista demonstrates the importance of learning from ancestors' stories to shape the future, illustrating the dangers of homogeneity and the beautiful imperfection of being human.”Emma, Content
