Hello, friends! It’s ya girl, back at it again with another blog tour–this time for a diverse YA anthology that is all about games, from board games to sports to video games and more. If you’ve ever gotten a little too competitive, or if you’ve ever felt a deep and abiding love for your game of choice, this book is for you. I can’t wait to read it (seriously, it has some real rockstar authors on that lineup), but in the meantime, check out this post and the rest of the stops on this tour for more info on this book!

It’s here. It’s queer. Its creepiness levels range from minimal to severe. It’s Unspeakable, the queer gothic anthology that you didn’t know you needed until just now. From beginning to end (minus a handful of “meh” moments), it is a fun-filled read, especially for those of us who like an extra dash of the paranormal, dark, and/or macabre in our stories. Plus, it is positively bursting with queer rep of all shapes and sizes! Stick with this post to the end, and you’ll find a nice little giveaway for a copy of the book, too.

If you want a stocking-stuffer guaranteed to produce roughly an hour or two of amusement and giggles for any of your family members, this book is for you. At just 144 pages, this is a quick read that will feel even quicker because you’re just enjoying it so much. Because this is a mini book, I think it’s fitting to give it just a mini-review, so here’s what you need to know:
Author: Seanan McGuire Publication date: October 31, 2019 Genre: short stories, fantasy, science fiction My rating: 5/5 stars
Most of all, this book is for all those fools who laughed at me in the academy. I may not be raising the dead yet, but I still know where my shovel is.
It’s no secret that I think Seanan McGuire is pretty great. I’ve only read a few of her books, but I’ve massively enjoyed them all. I knew she was great before I started on this collection, but boy howdy, she has outdone herself. Twenty-two short stories, all filled with her signature wit, wistfulness, and love for all things strange and disturbing.
