Strange Chemistry has published books that are truly unique. As a blogger, I can say that their books and stories stood out to me just from flipping through Listopias on Goodreads, finding debuts and books that I'd be interested in reading more about. I can honestly say that a lot of Strange Chemistry books were ones that got me excited and intrigued. The books themselves are fantastic quality as well- little details ensure that these books are something special. I'm sort of in shock that this publisher is closing- it feels like I'd only just discovered how incredible they are and now they're gone. But I can say that these stories are still definitely amazing and should be told. A lot of Strange Chemistry authors are dealing with a lot of stress and shock from this. My heart goes out to you all, and as a reader I'm not giving up on discovering your stories; I cannot wait to hear more from the authors that have been a part of this group.
The Library Canary also did a fantastic farewell post to Strange Chemistry that inspired me to share my own thoughts. She also calls for everyone to read these books and share the love for some awesome stories so that these fantastic authors can find a new publisher as well. I'll be posting my Feather Bound review shortly, and my Stolen Songbird is already on the blog, but I'll just say that those two books are both fantastic and entirely different from any I've read. Looking at multiple bookshelves and piles of books, that's saying something.
So, Strange Chemistry, I miss you and your wonderful books already. I think I'll always treasure what I've read and found from your books. To the authors, I can't even imagine how difficult of a time this is for you. Your stories are wonderful and you're in my thoughts.
