What Book Do You Recommend Most Often?

Great question! I sing the praises of Becky Chambers and Alice Oseman to whoever I can get to listen. They're my favorite authors.

What's the most underappreciated book that Deserves more attention?

The Railhead series by Philip Reeve. It's breathtaking with such inventive, imaginative worldbuilding. It also helps it's a thrill-ride of an adventure, and I love the casual diversity of the characters. They're probably my favorite young adult science fiction books.

How Do You Discover The Books You Choose To Read?

Recommendations from friends, folks I talk to, and people I follow, what's available at the library, and similar books on Goodreads. Lately I've been finding excellent book recs on Pinterest, and of course, with a quick search!
