Review: You Should See Me in a Crown, Leah Johnson

In recent years, I’ve seen a completely amazing trend take root in YA literature: what I like to call “zany high school hijinks but make them gay.” For somebody who grew up at a time when a lot of LGBT books for teens were either a.) all about the pain of being gay, or b.) all

The Selkie knew too many stories of deceitful men. This one, pleasant as he was, clearly hid something.
"I must go," she said.
He let her.
But he howled when he saw her change: "Come tomorrow!"
When she did, under the full moon, a huge labrador jumped into the sea to greet her.

Longtime readers will remember THE MARKED, a book about near-death experiences triggering quasi-magical tattoos, grieving, and the absolute power of an enraged mother.

(When StoryBundle asks “do you have any books about psychopomps?” and all of a sudden your entire oeuvre is full of potential, it’s a lovely feeling.)

GDBee is making stickers and prints with half the sale (basically the profit) going to the Bail Project. they are an ultra talented black creator if you're not familiar.

I recommend perusing their shop in general bc they are a black creator in a rural area who can't afford to get out quite yet.

I'm reminded of a Peter Carey short story I loosely remember. It's narrated by an old man thinking about taking time to enjoy physical pleasures, rejoicing that he can now 'spend a whole day eating a single humbug' rather than simply crunching and consuming it like he did when he was younger.

Usually I like fairly immediate music - short, fast, noisy or otherwise a bit abrasive. Today I'm indulging the other side of the coin; songs that have time to breathe and let themselves unfold as needed; unhurried tunes that feel no need to rush to get where they're going (mainly by Earth and Anatomy of Habit).
