Pick: The Golden Enclaves by Naomi Novik

If you’ve been looking for a story like Harry Potter, but more mature, then this series is probably for you! This is book three of a series. 

A Deadly Education (book one) 

The Last Graduate (book two) 

The Golden Enclaves (book three) 

 

It takes all of the best parts of the magical school genre (vaguely malicious school building, magical prophecies, epic struggles between good and evil) and flips them in the best ways possible (the school wants to eat you, you’re destined to destroy the world, but all you really want to do is build homes for homeless magical folks).

 

I genuinely can’t think of anything else I can say to express how much I enjoyed this series, so I’ll just leave you with a quote from the third page of “A Deadly Education” and an assurance that it really does only get better:  “I don’t want to summon an army of scuvara! I don’t want to conjure walls of mortal flame! I want my bloody room clean!” 

Borrow this series at your local library today!

Pick: Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver

Structural poverty, the opioid epidemic, and growing up Appalachia. Barbara Kingsolver has been a favorite author of mine since reading her novel The Bean Trees as a teenager.

 

This story, told from the perspective of Demon, an orphaned young man growing up in rural Appalachia who refuses to give up on himself despite the grimness of his prospects, differs greatly from many of her previous books.  And yet, her writing and descriptive character development does not disappoint.
