    Waiting on Wednesday: Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine

    There are whispers of a ghost in the slaughterhouse where sixteen-year-old Wen assists her father in his medical clinic—a ghost who grants wishes to those who need them most. When one of the Noor, men hired as cheap factory labor, humiliates Wen, she makes an impulsive wish of her own, and the Ghost grants it. Brutally. Guilt-ridden, Wen befriends the Noor, including their outspoken leader, a young man named Melik. At the same time, she is lured by the mystery of the Ghost and learns he has been watching her … for a very long time.

    i just read that someone thinks some adults prefer young adult lit because they aren’t intelligent enough for the ~complexity~ of adult fiction

    image

    Right, because all adult fiction is high literature and oh so complex *eyeroll*

    adult fiction is just codeword for more sex scenes

    When Lily Evans told James Potter that she wouldn’t go out with him because he was a bully, he stopped bullying people and redeemed himself. When Lily told Severus Snape that she wouldn’t go out with him because he called her a racial slur, he went on to join a racist terrorist group.
    Conclusion: James Potter handled rejection much better than Severus Snape does.

    #WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If You Liked Graceling by Kristin Cashore, try Huntress by Malinda Lo because both feature ass-kicking women charged with saving the kingdom.

    So flattering! Little known trivia: both those covers are UK editions. (You can tell on Huntress because it says “bestselling author of Ash" and that bestselling thing only happened in the UK.)

    Also, if you haven’t read Graceling yet, (1) where have you been? and (2) go read it! It was absolutely an inspiration to me when I wrote Huntress.
