To call this a Great Gatsby retelling is to undersell it. Told from the point of view of Jordan Baker, this is a gripping and magical story about difficult friendships, identity and belonging, paper tigers, literal devil's bargains, and all the glitz and glamor of the 1920s. Probably my favorite new book of the year.

This short novella puts such a hilarious and intriguing spin on the beloved concept of H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr Moreau. This story follows a boy band consisting of animal-human hybrids who are refugees from the Island of Dr Moreau and are all suspects of a gruesome murder. I was already expecting to love this book but I was not expecting to feel so deeply for these characters. This book was so easy to follow and effortlessly sucked me right into their universe, I couldn't get enough.
