A Far Wilder Magic by Allison Saft is a delightful romp through the autumnal countryside of an early 20th century inspired world as an alchemist and a sharp shooter fall in love, and fight to win the magical fox hunt that could win them everything they’ve ever desired. I absolutely adored the book, it’s beautiful prose, enthralling worldbuilding, and the wonderful characters of Wes and Margaret, and highly recommend you read it! - Kalyn

Lockwood & Co.: The Screaming Staircase By Jonathan Stroud Cover Image

Published: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers - August 26th, 2014

This series is an all time favorite of mine. Lucy Carlyle is a strong willed, sharp, and resorseful heroine surounded by a cast of other enchanting characters. The world that Jonathan Stroud has built is full and rich with clever world building, and his writing makes you feel like you are right along with the characters hunting ghosts in the foggy streets of London. I've read the books a least twice now, and once you get to the end you'll want to start reading the books again with all the new knowlage you've gained. It may be a YA novel, but anyone could read these books and fall in love.

Published: Square Fish - February 6th, 2018

I cannot recommend Leigh Bardugo's books enough. The characters are incredebly well developed, they feel just like real people, and the story itself unfolds in twists and turns that are just uterly brilliant. Each new detail draws you further in, and the world the story takes place feels lived in and full. When I finished one book, I couldn't help but get my hands on the next as soon as possible.

Published: Soho Teen - June 1st, 2021

It's a completely heart-wrenching book, one of the few that brought me to tears . The charactres are hopeful and resilient, brave enough to try in a world that rejects them, and the writing is unbelivibly fluid. Brynn Rebel-Henry's background in poetry really shows through. This book is an all time favorite.

This book is so entirely sweet and heartfelt, a perfect modern fairy tale. Morgan is utterly relatable, and Keltie carries herself with an infectious confidance that I can only aspire to have. On top of that, Molly Knox Ostertag's art is simply stunning. I definitly recomend this book.
