A world with cool eye colors tied to powers, a cast that could make you think about your own interactions with people, and a narrative that comes with a really cool map. —Patrick Edinger
Good evening to anyone reading. I hope you found this in good health. For this piece, I will be detailing a review of the newer trilogy, Threadlight, by Zack Argyle. Threadlight, if anyone’s mind was bursting with wonder, is a fantasy story set on The Continent of Arasin. Arasin is a large body of land filled to the brim with various mythical and magical creatures, as well as bustling settlements to match. Within this world bloated with legends, magics, and fiends, lies the beginning of our story. The beginning of the journey.
Take a deep breath and try not to freak out: fall is almost here, but you still have time to soak up some summer reading! While you’re at it, why not get in the mood for the approaching spooky season? The fine minds at Page Turner Magazine are here to help with a carefully curated list of chillingly good reads.
Here at Page Turner Magazine we love books. With every turn of the season, there’s a book sure to keep us turning the pages. While school is out for most of us, we have a little more time to catch up on our to-be-read (TBR) lists. Here’s a list of summer themed reads collected by Page Turner Magazine’s staff that you may want to add to your own TBR pile, if you haven’t already.
Sonora Reyes delivers a clear, compelling, and hilarious narrative of protagonist Yamilet’s (Yami) high school experience as a mostly-closeted queer brown outsider in their debut novel, The Lesbiana’s Guide to Catholic School. During an interview with the National Catholic Reporter, Reyes says, “In writing [my book], I wanted to explore what a happy ending could look like in Catholic school.”
Be prepared to get sucked into Yami’s perspective. With an opening line of “Seven years of bad luck can slurp my ass,” how could you not? Yami’s voice feels wry and charming, and with chapter titles like “Thou Shalt Not Trust a Two-Faced Bitch,” and “Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Capitalism,” I found myself smiling and laughing often.
