His Majesty's Dragon is a retelling of the Napoleonic Wars if there were an airforce made up of dragons. Dragons with guns!! Must I really say more? Reminiscent of Eragon and How to Train Your Dragon with a historical twist, this book is an underrated favorite of mine that deserves so much more clout. Very classic fantasy fun!

Uprooted is one of the most gorgeously written standalone fantasy novels I've ever read. You will fall in love with the characters & become obsessed with the magic system and worldbuilding. It reads undeniably reminiscent of folklore and fairytales, and is the perfect sorcery-infused introduction to Naomi Novik's work!!

When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain is the second standalone in the Singing Hills Cycle, a gorgeous series of novellas that feed me that fable & fairytale content I'm always hungry for. Each book weaves in different queer dynamics but this one in particular is heavy on the lesbians, which makes it a winner for me. You will devour these delectable stories in one sitting -- I can't recommend the experience enough!

Published: Vintage - April 7th, 2009

This is the only book I was assigned in high school that I still regularly reread. Edward is the original unhinged boyfriend, and the skeletons in his closet (or attic) will have you screaming at the page. I can't recommend a more genuinely enjoyable classic!

Published: Scholastic Press - October 18th, 2022

I Was Born For This should be required reading for anyone that's ever been in a fandom. As always, Oseman's characters are compelling in a way no other author has achieved for me, and in this standalone the character relationships go above and beyond. This book will make you feel deep, twisty-turvy teenage feelings.

This book is the evolution-based, spiders rule the world, sci-fi masterpiece that's going to knock your socks off. I left this book in genuine shock-it was one of the most beautifully written and well thought out worlds I've ever had the pleasure of jumping in to. And the spiders aren't even that bad, I promise.

Jade City is the action-packed mafia fantasy you didn't know you needed. The complicated, Godfather-esque dynamics between the Kaul siblings are too enthralling to put the book down, and the entirely unique jade-based magic system makes for an instant five star read. Visit the island of Kekon for a fresh breath of air in the fantasy genre.
