When I Arrived at the Castle by Emily Carroll

I’ve always loved good revenge stories, even more so when the lines between hatred and attraction are so blurred you can no longer tell the two apart. This reprinting of Emily Carroll’s lesbian supernatural cult classic muddies them effortlessly. With her signature bone-chilling writing and her haunting yet erotic art, Carroll has another horror classic under her belt with this masterful graphic novel.  —Mo

The Z Word by Lindsay King-Miller

The Z Word is filled with complicated queer desire and the messiness of self-sabotage, set against the backdrop of a terrifying infection slowly infiltrating the queer community during the festivities of a Pride weekend. This novel is sexy, scary, and absolutely action packed, and deals deftly with the consequences of corporate rainbow capitalism. Perfect for those who like to get goosebumps with their sunny beach reads. —Mo

Jin is a photographer haunted by an artistic block until she meets ballerina Lidjia at a party in Marin, changing her life forever. This novel is a deeply personal exploration of a woman learning to embrace and honor her desires and to confront the shame that has been fostered deep within her by her Korean Christian upbringing. The prose is rich and fills the reader with anticipation to find out more about Jin and Lidjia’s electric connection.  —Mo

The Marble Queen Written by Anna Kopp Illustrated by Gabrielle Kari

This highly anticipated sapphic romantasy was well worth the wait. The Marble Queen is an adorable, fast-paced graphic novel filled with political intrigue and relatable characters. I really resonated with the artful depiction of the main character’s struggle to overcome her anxiety and imposter syndrome, and I think a lot of readers dealing with these problems will feel seen and loved throughout it all.

The Invocations by Krystal Sutherland

Absolutely chilling, just the way I like my YA! This story of three girls bonded by magic and tragic backgrounds is full of complex characters, sarcastic humor, and pure rage. The Invocations is a searing critique of the dangerous and misogynistic world women face every day just by daring to live their lives. I was desperately turning pages to find out what happened next!
