Kelly Link is my favorite writer of all time, and this short story collection encapsulates everything I love about her work--it's magical realism at its weirdest and most fantastical, and these stories haunt my dreams.

Hyde's debut novel is a chillingly relevant climate dystopia with a delightfully unreliable narrator who must carve out a niche for herself in a crumbling society while navigating heartbreak, hope, and the social strata of a cult of personality.

Published: Greenwillow Books - April 22nd, 2008

The blueprint for cozy fantasy! This book is funny and heartwarming with one of the loveliest, most subtle romances I've ever seen and a cast of stubborn, ridiculous people who are impossible not to love. Another instance of the book being better than the movie, and one that gets better the more times you read it!

Published: Tor Books - February 14th, 2012

This is my favorite fairytale retelling! Valente is truly a genius. This Russian folktale set in Bolshevik-era Russia is vivid and chilling and beautiful and bloody, and I love it.
