Penned in loving, sharp verse, The Poet X is a beautiful, excruciating love letter to teenagedom, slam poetry, and Afro-Latina girls.
If you can’t tell, this post will be dark and full of spoilers. If you haven’t seen all the GOT that will ever air (*sniff*) then stay away!

Here are fifty ideas for graduation presents for the high school graduate in your life. This list includes some classic favorites as well as lots of recent releases, perfect for the class of 2019.
Despite the haunting setting and skillful world-building, Wicked Saints fails to deliver on its essential promises. Three stars for a clumsy, frustrating fantasy. A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself. A prince in danger must decide who to trust. A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the…
I had high hopes for The Hazel Wood but ended up confused, frustrated, and worst of all, bored. Two stars for incoherent execution on a wonderful urban fantasy concept.
I have the time and the spoons today, so I’m going to try to dig into the complete mess that is this post, because I think it’s more than just a bad take. It’s indicative of some deep problems in publishing.

Sharp, sweet, and gloriously fun. Five stars for the laugh-out-loud, must-listen audiobook version.
It seems to be official… I’m attending BookCon this summer!
The Gilded Wolves has everything I could possibly want. It’s perfect on paper, but just didn’t work for me. Three stars for an interesting but convoluted tale of colonialism and identity.
What I’ve read, preordered, and can’t wait for that’s releasing this May.
