★★★☆☆—First, and most important: why not call a raven a raven? A large, solitary crow? That’s a raven! Crows live in flocks and are much smaller than ravens. Don’t ask if it’s big enough to be a raven; ask if it’s small enough to be a crow.
★★★☆☆—A very, very, very, very steamy sapphic retelling of Peter and the Wolf, with an odd second half.
There are so, so many books out this month. So many! And if one more website changes its layout, I’m gonna eat glass!
★★★★☆—Two devoutly religious boys: one a Chassidic Jew, one a Muslim, both queer. One summer in Israel. An easy friendship turning into a magnetic romance. The weight of the words of the Torah and the Quran on their minds. What does it mean? Where can it lead?
★★★★☆—Murderbot is back, free, and wants to know why it did so much murder that one time.
