I loved Geekerella back in 2017, so I was thrilled to see that it was getting a companion novel. Although I’m not a huge fan of contemporary YA books, Poston's convention romances are such fun reads and love letters to geek culture.
Joanne Harris is rapidly becoming one of my favourite authors. Pocketful of Crows was a standout read from last year, and The Blue Salt Road is just as good. I really appreciate retellings of lesser known fairy tales and folklore, and the Child Ballads fit the bill perfectly. Harris’s haunting style and talent for storytelling bring The Blue Salt Road to life.
