Krystal Sutherland recommends
Our Crooked Hearts (2022)
Melissa Albert
"Nobody writes like Melissa Albert. Her words are electric, sizzling; they crash through the bloodstream with the same force as the magic she conjures in her stories. Our Crooked Hearts is Albert at her very best; a sharp explosion of a book that's taut, haunting, and potent as a witch's brew."
Anything But Fine (2022)
Tobias Madden
"In Anything But Fine, Tobias Madden delivers a stirring meditation on identity and grief. Sweet, warm and thoroughly delightful, it will quickly dance its way into your heart."
No Beauties or Monsters (2021)
Tara Goedjen
"Sears with uncanny malice from the very first page--and then quickly explodes into a blistering fever dream. Insidiously beautiful."
