Cover of Rose House by Arkady Martine Anticipated 2023 Speculative Fiction Book Releases

For the past few years, there have been so many speculative fiction books that sound wonderful that it has been difficult to narrow down a list of anticipated releases to a somewhat reasonable number. Like the last couple of years, I scoured the web for book descriptions and interviews with their authors, early reviews, and excerpts to learn more about some of the books coming out this year. (And of course, there were some books that were already on my […]

Cover of The Final Strife by Saara El-Arifi Favorite Books of 2022 & Year in Review

Happy New Year! Last year was another not-so-great year in a lot of ways, and the last couple of weeks included a storm that knocked out our power for two days and was overall an unpleasant experience. But I also got to visit a cat cafe and spend time with some adorable kitties as an early Christmas gift, and as usual, I read some wonderful books. One of the biggest highlights of 2022 was the eleventh annual Women in SF&F […]

The Tangleroot Palace by Marjorie Liu - Cover Image Review of The Tangleroot Palace by Marjorie Liu

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. The Tangleroot Palace contains six short stories and one novella by New York Times bestselling author and comic book writer Marjorie Liu, each of which is followed by her reflections on it. The author’s introduction mentions that she could not resist making some edits to these previously published stories, but they remain essentially the same as they were beforehand. I’d never read any of these stories before this book so I […]

Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan - Book Cover 30 Anticipated 2022 Speculative Fiction Book Releases

One good thing about the past few years has been the abundance of amazing speculative fiction books, and yet again, it was difficult to narrow down my list of 2022 releases that sound promising to a somewhat reasonable number. Like last year, I searched the web for early reviews, excerpts, and information from the author and/or publisher and came up with 30 books. (And of course, that wasn’t necessary for some of these because I’ve loved the author’s other works […]

The Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri - Cover Image Favorite Books of 2021 & Year in Review

It was a rough year between the ongoing pandemic and then being evicted, buying a home, and needing to do lots of work on said home, and I didn’t write nearly as many book reviews as I would have liked. (And a few of those I did write were catching up on books I’d read in 2020 and struggled to review because of, well, 2020.) But it was a great year in other ways. Women in SF&F Month 2021 was […]

The Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri - Cover Image 30 Anticipated 2021 Speculative Fiction Book Releases

It seems like it becomes harder to limit my anticipated speculative fiction book releases post to a semi-reasonable number of works every year, and it was incredibly difficult to narrow down my initial long list of titles coming out in 2021. But after scouring the web for early reviews, excerpts, and more information from the author and/or publisher, I managed to cut it down to 30 books that I think look especially promising. (Of course, a few of these books […]
