Review: The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics, by Olivia Waite

I was really excited about this book because I am an Olivia Waite fangirl. I love her column on the Seattle Review of Books, and she’s one of the people I recommend heavily in my work at the library. So when I saw she was coming out with a queer historical with science ladies, I knew I should take a chance on it. And I’m happy I did! The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics is a delight. I read it at a time when I was super stressed out and needed some relief during Big Life Stuff, and Catherine and Lucy’s story was like a warm, safe weighted blanket at the end of the day.

When they're not creating entirely new worlds, fantasy authors love to play with different historical time periods. Remember when steampunk was all the rage? Renaissance Italy? Okay, that last one is just a dream of mine, but roll with it.

Rosiee Thor's debut YA sci-fi novel, Tarnished Are the Stars, is excellent. She combines several classic sci-fi themes, fresh environmental elements and a whole lot of Queer Feels to make an action- and emotion-packed story of oppression, grief, love and hope.

We're getting into the time of year when publishers slow down their release schedule, so this month is a little lighter than usual. Gird your loins for January, when they open the flood gates again.

Now's a great time to stock up on winter reading and catch up on all those October books!

Gothic Romances, AKA Fleeing the Manor in Terror

[fa icon="calendar'] Oct 28, 2019 9:45:00 AM / by Suzanne Krohn posted in list

Every fall, when the days turn gray and windy and the leaves fall from the trees to cast their skeletal shadows across dark roads, I crave a Gothic romance. Give me the ghosts, murder and events that could be paranormal or the result of sinister humans. Give me a protagonist fleeing their One Safe Place in terror. Give me characters who don't know who to trust but still need to work together to solve a mystery and defeat evil. And please, please give me an HEA at the end of all this. Otherwise I will throw your book against the wall.
