Wicked Saints RECOMMENDED: Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan is $2.99! The sequel also just came out this month! I really enjoyed this book and gave it a B+: Wicked Saints is a young adult fantasy debut and it’s a goth kid’s dream. Seriously, if you have a thing for anti-heroes, dark magic, and things that are simply metal as fuck, this book is for you. A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself. A prince in danger must decide who to trust. A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings. Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war. In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy.

Or do you see… you know. Maya: penis, I see penis Amanda: Lots of ink splatters inside Sarah: That’s a lot of…centering penis imagery EllenM: yeah not sure if the pen really is mightier than the penis on this cover. Catherine: I didn’t even see the pen at all and had to hastily close my browser before my colleague saw it! AJ: “What should we put on the cover of this book of feminist quotations?” “Well, I was thinking a big spurting dick and the word PENIS in big letters a couple of times.” Catherine: I do feel like the cover somewhat misses the point of the entire book… AJ: It’s driving me a little crazy, because penis ownership and feminism aren’t even opposites! Lots of women have penises! But I just…
