Jay Kristoff(Age: 15+) It’s been a while since I’ve read fantasy, and whooooa is this good! Set in a world with three suns where you only get ‘truedark’ every four years, we follow the protagonist Mia as studies at her school…for assassins. I especially love the narrative voice – there are some pretty hilarious footnotes! This is the first of a trilogy and I’ve already bought the other two!
Sailor Moon: Eternal Edition
Naoko Takeuchi(Age: 13+) I’ve finally gotten my hands on the latest ‘Eternal’ edition of the manga, which has the best translations to date. I’ve read the manga several times before, where I gobbled up the story and admired all the fantastic characters. This time, I’m focusing on all the incredible lore in the series – so much is inspired by Greco-Roman mythology!

C.P. Cavafy(Age: 15+) Translated from Modern Greek, these poems vividly describe scenes from ancient history. Despite their ancient settings, Cavafy’s poems, with their wry descriptions of politics and human interactions, never lose their relevance. Also of interest to the modern reader are his poems about love, loss, and ageing.
Code of the Woosters
P.G. Wodehouse(Age: 13+) Wodehouse was the unchallenged master of English prose. In this novel, we follow the pleasant but naïve Bertie Wooster and his shrewd valet Jeeves as they try to steal a cow-creamer for Bertie’s aunt. Perfectly written, perfectly paced, and perfectly pleasant, Wodehouse’s novels take you to world you’ll never want to leave.
