A broken mirror of a novel — some of what you see is recognizable, some is not. Images relate in unsettled ways, a new whole just of out of reach. Mesmerizing.Recommended by Warren B.
Unrelenting — by then end I was begging it to stop and praying that it wouldn't. Like a bad dream in all the best ways.Recommended by Warren B.
If you have fond memories of Scooby Doo, and wonder what it might look like updated to today, laced with some Lovecraftian rocket fuel, and stripped of the cheesy rubber masks at the end, this book is a nonstop thrill ride!Recommended by Warren B.
For anyone who has ever wondered about the mystery of their parents — has been stunned to discover they are people with lives of their own, not much different than us, and worthy of as much empathy as we can muster.Recommended by Warren B.
One of the most achingly beautiful and intensely romantic books I've ever read — totally unexpected and deeply, lyrically human, right in the middle of a science fiction story about two far-future agents on opposing sides — one a technotopia, the other an organic hive. If these two opposites can fall in love, then there is hope for all of us.Recommended by Warren B.
Ghosts aren't real, right? What about memories? An engaging, entertaining, coming-of-age story that subtly shifts gears into a moving, bittersweet exploration of what truly haunts us.Recommended by Warren B.

Wow. Utterly weird, utterly captivating, dizzily creative, frothily exciting, spit-take funny. There's no way to describe this pastiche of hero's journey, magic, alternate history, and Napoleon's disembodied head — you simply must read it for yourself!Recommended by Warren B.
Megan Campisi weaves a story around a strong female character condemned to live by literally eating the sins of others, symbolized by various foods. This was an actual thing back in the 16th century but makes for a startlingly apt read today.Recommended by Warren B.
