Seanan McGuire writes urban fantasy with faeries (the October Daye series; start with Rosemary and Rue), which I love to pieces, and Every Heart a Doorway is a murder mystery starring portal fantasy survivors, which I adore. McGuire is a queer woman, several of the October Daye characters are explicitly queer and one is explicitly trans, and the lead protagonist of Every Heart a Doorway is explicitly asexual and another protagonist is explicitly trans. A++ representation and McGuire totally deserves her NYT bestseller status; she's an excellent writer. She's the sort who when you read book six you blink a few times and start over at book one because clearly you missed something important along the way, and then you do that again when you read book seven, because the information was all there but really subtly and it wasn't directly pertinent to the book she dropped it in so it slid right past.

McGuire's also written the InCryptid series and a bunch of things under the name Mira Grant, but the only thing I can say about those (not having read them) is if you don't like zombies and parasites you might want to steer clear of her works as Mira Grant.

[ profile] seananmcguire is also a reliable source of cat pictures. (Sometimes other people's kittens guest star.)

I tried to find a mention of books you've already read but couldn't find any, so this might be a familiar one. Still, it bears another rec even if you already know it. :) The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner, and its sequel The Silver Blade. They're YA novels that take place during the French Revolution, with some fantasy/magical elements. I personally found the novels a few years ago due to Tom Hiddleston's (rather pleasant but a bit distracting) audio book of the first novel but I stayed for the story and charming characters. If you haven't already read them, maybe give them a try?

As an aside, I couldn't help noticing you like B5, which I think always makes a person cool. :D Been a fan since late 90s myself and it will always have a special place in my heart. Excellent taste.

I would also like to recommend these young adult books for you from my home country of New Zealand. They are "I Am Not Esther" and "I Am Rebecca" by Fleur Beale.

"I Am Not Esther" tells the story of a teenage girl, Kirby, who is left in the custody of relatives who belong to a strict religious cult. Will she escape their clutches, and what will be the emotional cost?

"I am Rebecca" is the aforementioned book's sequel and focuses on Kirby's cousin Rebecca who was raised in the cult and is devoted to its teachings. But when she becomes old enough to marry, will things change for this pious young woman?

For more information, links are below:

I hope you will enjoy these! :)

It sort of races weirdly across all your book likes but.. have you tried the Chronicles of St Marys?

It's not historical.. but it does have time travelling historians. It has a YAish sort of feel to me (although the characters are adults). It's definitely scifi-ish, and the author is definitely female (have been to book signing, can verify!) And I loved it, a lot.

YA Recs!

Some of these didn't hold up quite as well as I had hoped, but they were great re-reads.

R.L. Stine - Fear Street
The First Evil, The Second Evil, The Third Evil, The New Evil (I want to name my first daughter after the protagonist of this series)
The Dead Lifeguard (This is why I don't swim)

Sideways Stories from Wayside School (by the same guy who did Holes! these are probably geared at like, 10 year olds, but it's all puns. They are very punny.)

A Series of Unfortunate Events (more puns! :D)

The Westing Game (I read this like 15 years ago but IIRC it was pretty solid. I wrote fanfic about it that crossed over with Evil Dead.)

The Wind in the Willows (<3)

The House on Mango Street (you have probably read this one, but it somehow escaped me until college :P I have a copy in Spanish even though I don't know how to read Spanish. One day.)

To be continued as I try to remember stuff I read LOL


From my local PSPCA:

Tried to embed but they won't embed :( so this is the master link to the kittens :D

Star Trek: How Much For Just the Planet

I love Star Trek but I haven't read too many books. This was my favorite of the ones I have read. It was recommended to me by another Star Trek fan. It was released in 1987 so not all parts of Klingon culture match later depictions but it is consistent with prior depictions.

Anyways, the inhabitants of the planet Direidi are sitting on a buttload of dilithium crystals. They know that eventually the Federation and the Klingon Empire are going to come knocking. So they develop Plan C to deal with the inevitable day that the Enterprise and a Klingon Bird of Prey come to negotiate for mining rights to the planet.

This book features such fun things as an educational film on dilithium crystals, musical numbers, discussions on the probability of randomly encountering an old flame, a sloppy Vulcan, and a cameo from a young Neil Gaiman.

I would tell you more but I don't want to spoil the book. It does have its own tvtropes page if you want to check out more.
