Werewolves and vampires hate each other. Everyone knows that. So when Lachlain finds the woman destined to be his mate, he is more than a little disappointed to find that she's a vampire. Emma wants nothing to do with him — in fact, she's terrified of the crazed werewolf. This book is full of sass and excitement. I love the world Kresley Cole has created.Recommended by Rose H.
I'm obsessed with this book — it's an absolute luxury to get sucked into. You'll want to take Joe out for drinks to talk about Prince and bookstores, but he'd never have time for that. He's too busy being the world's most dedicated, charming, sociopathic stalker. Go on, meet Joe. You'll never forget him.Recommended by Emily F.

Both laugh-out-loud funny and heart-wrenchingly sad, My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness is a beautiful queer narrative that shouldn't be overlooked. Adorably illustrating her personal struggles with body dysphoria and sexual identity in deeply poignant ways, author Kabi Nagata explores what it is to want to connect, to want to be held, to want to belong. If you've ever needed a friend, this book is for you.Recommended by Cosima C.
A sun-dappled California sex comedy lit up with pinball machine prose, Absolutely Golden doesn't skimp on the details. Full of chatterbox nudists spouting groovy-isms at warp speed, flitting from one dalliance to the next, D. Foy's frolic through the 1970s is sheer candy-coated delirium. An unadulterated pleasure just begging to be ogled.Recommended by Justin W.
This book is soft and tender, yet doesn't shy away from content that is hard to chew on or questions that have no easy answers. I can't wait for Volume 2!Recommended by Junix S.
Why should everyone read a book about a pedophile's obsessive and frankly gross relationship with a little girl? Because if you are a reader — a lover of words, puns, witticisms, metaphors, and allusions — Lolita is a literary masterpiece that can't be passed over in a fit of queasy morality. Humbert Humbert, the novel's unreliable narrator, knows that he's a despicable pervert and yet the reader can't help enjoying him as he surveys... (read more)Recommended by Rhianna W.
