The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead, Red Sister by Mark Lawrence, and The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski.
★★★☆☆—A cute, funny sailing-themed romance that peters out in the second half.
★★★★☆—A moving, epic, groundbreaking YA fantasy with an unfortunately weak set-up.
★★★☆☆—A retelling with lovely prose that never wrangles its elements into a cohesive whole.
Have you read Murderbot? You gotta read Murderbot.
★★★★☆—Assassin’s Apprentice is 25 years old and holy crap, it withstands the test of time.
