The last few years have been an utter boon in the world of YA verse novels. With superstar YA authors starting or continuing their legacies in verse, more and more room has been made on shelves for verse novels.

I laughed when Tivo came out with QuickMode™, the option to speed through shows at a faster playback. I mean I guess if you have to watch something for homework or something (is that a thing?) and don’t really want to watch it, then the faster the better. But if you’re doing something for enjoyment,

I’ve been hosting bookish podcasts for more than a decade, and in that time, the question I’ve been asked more than any other is, “Will you interview this author on your show?” The answer is almost always no, and here’s why: quiet as it’s kept, author interviews are almost always boring.

“Lesbian necromancers in space” is a hell of a way to advertise a book, and Tamsyn Muir followed through on that promise.
