It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Stephanie Burgis’s Harwood Spellbook series, which combines Regency romance, magic and feminism into wonderfully cozy, comforting, enjoyable reads. The newest novella in the series, Moontangled, is out today!
I went into this book pretty blind apart from the fact that it was about orc lesbians and necromancy – and I feel like that’s a damn good reason to pick something up!
Heather Rose Jones is a fantastic author whose historical fantasy books centre queer women and their lives and adventures. I’m a huge fan of her Alpennia series, and really looking forward to reading the newest standalone in it, Floodtide. I was lucky enough to hear her read from Floodtide at WorldCon over the summer, and I was instantly drawn into the little magics explored in it – charms to help with laundry, for example. I love how fantasy can open a window into the realities of life, and in this fascinating guest post, Heather explains a little bit about why and how she chose to focus on the smaller, day-to-day magics of women in her new book.
Today I’m really excited to be on the blog tour for Girls of Storm and Shadow, one of my most anticipated books of the year. This is the sequel to the phenomenal Girls of Paper and Fire, which I loved so much I reviewed it twice, and it more than lives up to the first book’s amazingness!
Crier’s War is one of the best YA fantasies I’ve read in a long time, and it’s f/f to boot! I’m so excited to be bringing you my review as part of the blog tour today!
It’s taken me an age to get around to reading Robbergirl – I was offered a copy to review by the author back in February during #reviewpit! – and I’m really regretting not reading it earlier, because it’s gorgeous!
This book is just delightful! If you like high fantasy, sweet f/f romance, gods learning to embrace their flaws, or just a really good road trip, then this is a must read!
