WICKED AWESOME BOOK ALERT! ok so my friend @rosariamunda was kind enough to send me an advance copy of her debut novel FIREBORNE, out oct. 15, and let me tell you, it is so good.
how good is it? i missed my subway stop by a few stops on two separate occasions bc i was so immersed in the world Rosaria has built. it’s marketed as YA, but i found it fully intellectually engaging + emotionally resonant as an avid reader in my (mid to) late 20s.
the characters are brilliantly written: perhaps it is too simple to say that they are viscerally human, but they truly do hold the nuance + multitudes + paradoxes we all carry within, and i loved experiencing the sparks of recognition as they work to navigate a complicated world.
one of the things about this book that most delighted me was the integration of post-revolution politics + the complexity of ethics in an unjust world. think Plato’s Republic meets Ender’s Game but in a new + fragile government. but with DRAGONS
FFO: His Dark Materials or any YA or fantasy novel with a compelling, immersive world and exploration of the human condition.
preorder is up on both amazon and indiebound! just like records, preorders count towards first week sales and play a huge role in the book’s success so if you’re interested grab that preorder 🖤📚

what’s something that’s brought you unexpected joy recently? for me it was this view + a friend surprised me with a book this week that i am loving, which literally turned my entire month around 🖤📕
