Joan He recommends
Darker by Four (2024)
June CL Tan
"June CL Tan excels at writing tactile worlds and ensemble casts, and nowhere is this more evident than in Darker by Four. If you ever wanted a book that reads like a comfort anime that also isn't afraid to skewer you with angst and explosive fight sequences, then look no further."
The Last Bloodcarver (2024)
(Last Bloodcarver Duology, book 1)
Vanessa Le
"Has it all-a wonderfully unique magic system, heartfelt themes of legacy and diaspora, and obsession-worthy characters. I need more Nhika and Kochin now!"
Gorgeous Gruesome Faces (2023)
(Gorgeous Gruesome Faces, book 1)
Linda Cheng
"Gorgeous Gruesome Faces is a thrill ride-but it's also so much more. If you peel back its slick and flawless skin, you'll find a nuanced portrait on fandom and idols, obsession and love, and how easily all lines can blur."
