How to Be Less Stupid About Race by Crystal Marie Fleming is $2.99! Earlier this year, anti-racist books were flying off the shelves, but of course, we should all continue to do the work in being anti-racist even after the cultural zeitgeist has passed.
The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal is $2.99! This is part of today’s Kindle Daily Deals, which are all Goodreads Choice Award winners and finalists. Carrie read this one and gave it a B grade:
Even though at first I found this book to be slow going, I came to appreciate it for its intersectional feminism and its unabashed adoration of all the science and math that goes into making space flight possible.
Deadline by Stephanie Ahn is $3.99! Now, this might be full price but I wanted to include it because it sounds fucking amazing.

The description warns of some BDSM elements, which some reviewers thought was a bit of an unwelcome surprise.
Shadow Blade by Seressia Glass is 99c! This is the first book in the Shadowchasers urban fantasy series.

I’ve heard so many good things about this book, and several friends compared it to a fairy tale. However, readers admit that it’s a tad confusing at the start, as they tried to get their footing in the story.
