The first book in the Brown Sisters trilogy, this is a cute, cheesy romance with funny dialogue that nonetheless delves into serious topics such as chronic illness and mental health.The main characters, Chloe Brown and Redford Morgan, are both likeable and independent--even when they get together, they still pursue their own interests--and though it’s a hate-to-love story, I was rooting for both of them in their separate endeavors. And, for audio-book afficionados, the taped version features a great British narrator.

Exploring race, classism, and capitalism, these razor-sharp stories comprise a strange, powerful, important collection, one that has only become more important and relevant since its publication in 2018. Using the power of fiction to lay bare difficult truths about contemporary America, Adjei-Brenyah constructs compelling dystopian surfaces that render the realities of life for Black Americans in honest, brutal, and unforgettable ways. These stories may seem futuristic, but they get to the heart of the country today.

A Darker Shade of Magic is a combination of immersive fantasy and historical fiction that never feels forced. Taking place in not one, not two--but four versions of London, and with a hefty dose of magic, it has something for everyone. Schwab's world is so lush, and her characters--including an aspiring pirate--are so likeable and complex, that I was rooting for all of them.
