I’m a simple gal, I see this on Twitter and immediately add the book to my TBR: “if you want a jazz age murder mystery starring a tiny, tired lesbian, look no further than DEAD DEAD GIRLS.” And let me tell you: this debut historical mystery did not disappoint! With an amazing atmosphere, complex characters, and engaging plot, I devoured this book in two sittings and can’t wait for Louise’s next adventure.
This is the fiercely feminist and empowering story of rebellion you’ve been waiting for! This Cinderella retelling has a queer black girl overthrowing the patriarchy and is a must-read! Bayron’s debut YA fantasy weaves together an intensely powerful story that reimagines the fairy tales we all […]
Hands-down my favorite read of 2020 so far, Jordan Ifueko’s YA debut fantasy Raybearer is a must-read for people who love rich world-building and found families.

tl;dr: THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD, I devoured it! Just do yourself a favor and buy it. Oh, and just grab the audiobook, too. You’ll thank me later.
Black Lives Matter was founded in 2013 in response to the murder of Trayvon Martin, yet countless Black lives continue to be lost at the hands of police and white supremacists. The time for silence is long over; the status is not quo and it is critical that we support the people on the ground fighting for their lives (during a pandemic which is disproportionately affecting them, no less) and demand change.
Reader Voracious is going on hiatus for the time being to focus my energy on supporting Black Lives Matter and becoming a better ally. But I want to use my platform to provide information how you can be involved, resources of where to look for information, reading suggestions to confront our privilege, and uplift three Black debut authors’ novels we all should add to our TBRs!
