To Read

It’s just easier to compile this here than to write it down on a piece of paper and lose it, honestly.

Have any suggestions? Feel free to add them! Know, however, that I’m mostly interested in speculative fiction, and in a pretty narrow margin of that–think CJ Cherryh, Robin McKinley, Nnedi Okorafor, Neil Gaiman, and Kristin Cashore, and you’ve got what I’m looking for. Also, (massive) parts of this page have been cribbed from here, here, and here.
