A mess of links to fill your weekend:
- The shortlist for the Tournament of Books has been released! I thought I read a good batch of new releases last year, but I don't know half the titles on this list. I'm cheering for "An Untamed State," no matter what.
- The spells in Harry Potter are deeper than you thought.
- To fill out your TBR, io9 rounds up the best paperback originals in SFF released last year and SFF titles to look forward to this year.
- Bustle collects 18 feminist books. (I'm a bit miffed at their choosing "Yes, Please" over "Bossypants," but "Yes, Please" is newer.)
- If you prefer your bookish content in audiovisual form, Cheryl Strayed has revived "Dear Sugar" as a podcast and Medium has launched an author interview series called"Forward."
