The Case for Science Fiction, Our August Box, and Ace of Spades Hype Up


With Natalia, Emma, and Renee

Science fiction and fantasy don’t get the respect they deserve and Natalia has a lot of feelings about it. At the end of the segment, we hope you’ll be more inclined to pick up the next science fiction or fantasy book you stumble across. Then Renee unboxes everything in the August Feminist Book Club box. Finally, Emma hypes up a debut YA dark academia thriller, Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé. Shoutout to bookstagrammer Maya, @antonique_reads for recommending Ace of Spades to Emma!
