'Wicked Saints' is Everything I Needed | A Spoiler-Free Review

The enchanting 'Wicked Saints' packed a punch. "There was magic involved, of course, but the core of this story focuses on interpersonal relationships, a bit of politics, and (of course) war."

I was somehow deeply invested. I needed to know this story, these characters, this setting.

'Romanov' Walks, Then Sprints | A Spoiler-Free Review

"The old rumors of the Princess Anastasia are the basis for 'Romanov,' but Brandes takes a different road. She thought of what made the most sense from what she had researched about Anastasia’s character and the Romanov family’s beliefs. She combined that knowledge with a world where magic could be harnessed. And she wrote a story that made my heart stop and restart several times."

📚 How are we different from other boxes? 📚

- Well, first off: Our very own magazine, designed and written by us. We include content like reviews, book recommendations, publishing news, notes from the author and editor of the month's featured book, quizzes, self-care tips, and even book-inspired recipes.

- Gender-neutral items. Anyone can appreciate things like face masks and socks, but we stay away from the usual book box finds of necklaces, earrings and rings.

- Useful items. We stay away from things like art prints and figurines meant to gather dust on a shelf -- we want our boxes to include items you can use! For more about what you may find in a box, scroll down to the question "What will I find in my box."

- Items inspired by self-care and relaxation. We curate items to create an environment that will urge our readers to sit, relax, take a load off, and read a good book. Sure, we might include the book box staple of candles every once in a while, but also keep your eye out for rejuvenating face masks, inspiring stationery, lovely custom soaps, professionally-created teas, and much (much!) more.

- Items that speak to you. We'll include an item or two (or maybe three or four, who knows!) inspired directly by the featured book in our box, and our other items will be for all book lovers -- not inspired by other popular YA books that you may or may not have read. There's no need to be a pop culture guru to enjoy our boxes; the merchandise we include will either be inspired by reading in general or the book we've included just for you.

- We listen to you. As long as we can afford to include something in our boxes, we will absolutely take your voices into account! Especially if you suggest specific shops or items!

Want your very own box? Awesome! Pre-Orders will officially open this Friday, September 21! Bookmark this page to reserve your spot early -- space will be limited: https://fictionistmag.com/product/the-fictionist-box/

Yakult and Scrunchies: 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' Lacked Some Korean Representation

We chatted with some lovely Twitter users about how emphasizing Lara Jean's Korean heritage (or even casting a half-Korean actress) would have made 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' that much better.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before isn't just a great new rom com for viewers to sink their teeth into - it's also an example of Asian representation on screen today.

On 'Girls of Paper and Fire' by Natasha Ngan:

"It isn't just important because it's good, or because this story brushed my soul. It's good because a book like this being championed by a large publishing house means we're moving in the right direction."

2018 is here: A book with trigger warnings and a stellar LGBT romance is being championed by a big time publisher.

This book was interesting, well-written and immersive. just like book one. The lack of split POVs and the focus on Jahan's storyline helped Bates a lot here.

Furyborn will keep you up at night. It will grip you and not let you go until you can peel your eyes off the pages to try to get some sleep (so that you can read more in the morning). Savor it.

Penguin Launches Kokila: A New Imprint for Diverse Books

"With movements like #WeNeedDiverseBooks and discourse over books like The Black Witch, it’s a wonder that so few publishers have focused on diversity. HarperCollins, for example, has over 50 imprints, none of which are dedicated to diverse fiction. There is one imprint — Amistad — that mentions it publishes multicultural books, but it’s mostly adult non-fiction.

Hopefully, Penguin will start a trend with the launch of Kokila."
