I have a pretty big list of “want to read” books on Goodreads, and I’d like to get through some more of them this year. I just got two from the library: Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor and Marcelo in the Real World by Fransisco Stork.
I’m not sure how to describe Akata Witch yet, but it’s very… distinctive? Whatever it is, it does it very emphatically. My copy has endorsements from Diana Wynne Jones and Ursula Le Guin, which is definitely a good way to get me to read a book if I hadn’t already decided to read this one, and I guess it is a bit Diana Wynne Jones-ish in tone.
