I’m going to have some time to read over my Christmas holiday, so I went through my wishlist and downloaded a whole slew of samples (see below). I will report back once I get through them all! In the meantime, if you have read any of these books and either loved or hated them, feel free to let me know in comments.

I can no longer remember who recommended most of these to me. All of the authors are new to me except for Daniel José Older and Kate Elliott.
