Hi, I'm Kristen Kieffer. A life-long reader and storyteller, I love living life as an author of speculative fiction and creative writing resources.

I am the author of the upcoming fantasy series, The Books of Maveryn and The Dark Between, as well as several novellas and short stories set in the world of Maveryn.

I also create and publish writing resources through Well-Storied.com, including the expansive blog archives, the Story Notes newsletter, writing reference books and workshops, and more.

The Order of Time by Carlo Rovelli

I won't pretend I understand even half of what I just read, but how I love Carlo Rovelli for making some of science's most complex and misunderstood topics as approachable as possible for the everyperson.

Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders

Clear rating
This book wasn't a typical read for me, but I did enjoy it. Saunders provides such a beautiful look at life and death and grief, even if the wacky format did throw me off from time to time. I don't know if I would have enjoyed this book as much, howe ...more

Actual Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars

Update: Never in my life have I immediately re-read a book after finishing it, yet despite just how much I enjoyed CMBYN the first time, I felt I read too quickly to give Aciman's exquisite prose the attention it deserved.

Actual Rating: 3.5 / 5 stars

I haven't yet done much feminist reading, so it may not hold much sway to say this is the best book I've read thus far on the topic. That said, I agree with Gay's opinion that the modern feminist movement is both incredibl

I am an empty, aching chasm. Completely done in. This book is one of rare and poignant beauty, and I know it will stay with me for years to come.

Actual Rating: 3.5 / 5 stars!

I have a confession to make: I haven't read many novellas in my time. That's one reason I was especially excited to dive into this story written by a dear online friend.

Firstly, let it be said that if you are fan of Sara

I said I'd read anything and everything V.E. Schwab writes, and I wasn't kidding. This was her debut, and it definitely feels like a debut, which is something I honestly appreciate as a writer? It gives me hope, I suppose.

But in any case, I loved th

I chose this as my second go at graphic novels after I tore through SAGA in April. This first issue, though beautiful, kind of left me bored. I probably would have read the second issue to see if the story picked up, but i
