BITCH PLANET is a thought-provoking and important series, but it can also be a difficult one to read. Kelly Sue DeConnick has the ability to turn a spotlight on a harsh truth and inspect it. BITCH PLANET: TRIPLE FEATURE VOLUME 1 introduces us to different artists and writers, each with their own spin on DeConnick’s universe.

SHADOWSONG has such a beautiful cover. I longed to get lost in a musical story of enduring love, magic, and the fae. And while the writing is as beautiful as the cover, it often twisted to the melodramatic.
A promise of intrigue and dangerous plots drew me to THE QUEEN’S RISING. The backcopy had me excited for political twists and turns as a highly trained woman endeavors to return the rightful queen to her throne.
I was drawn into MARKSKWOMAN by the impressive back copy and cover art. Sign me up for any novel featuring a sisterhood of elite warriors. Readers that love page turning action and assassinations will fall in love with MARKSWOMAN.
DEADLY SWEET’s back copy immediately hooked me. I love cooking shows (there’s something profoundly soothing about sitting down and watching someone bake a cake), so combine that with magic, and I couldn’t wait to start reading.
I always look forward to a good “what if” story, so I jumped at the chance to read THROUGH A DARK GLASS. Who wouldn’t want to see the different outcomes a single choice could result in? This premise is a minefield of opportunity.
When I pick up a new dystopian novel, I’m always hopeful that the author will put a new spin on the genre. But at it’s core, SINLESS is nothing new. Tarkoff has found a different, problematic way to divide society, but the same beats exist. The hero is at first blind to the horrors of her world, then her eyes open, and she decides to revolt and become the savior everyone apparently needs.
Every now and then, a book presents an entirely unique premise that draws me in immediately. CHAINBREAKER, with its clock towers that maintain time, is one of them. Even though I hadn’t read the first book in the trilogy, I had to read CHAINBREAKER, and I’m glad that I went with my gut on this one.
I’m down for any story with a heroine, but I was especially drawn to EVER THE BRAVE when I found out Britta had saved the king in the first book. I immediately wanted to know more about her and her Channeler powers.
The promise of time travel shenanigans drew me to WEAVE A CIRCLE ROUND. When done right, time travel can be immensely fun and mind-bending. I was intrigued and excited to find out how Freddy had arrived thousands of years in the past and what the consequences would be.
