In this collection of short stories you'll find something eerie, magical, bizarre, and wonderful. All of these stories twist fantasy with reality for a perfect harmony. I'm a huge fan of Karen Russell, and this is probably my favorite story collection yet.

This is a beautifully written book about two young people struggling with anxiety, relationships, and social pressures. Set in Ireland, the book follows the on-again, off-again relationship of Connell and Marianne as they meet in high school and attend college together. Sally Rooney nails the millennial voice here.

This is the story of a rock band building it's fame, and joining forces with an unstoppable young woman. If you're a fan of Fleetwood Mac and the movie Almost Famous, read this book! You'll wish there was an album you could listen to when you've finished.

Is it redundant to say that a book about a sleeping sickness is written with a dream-like quality? And yet it's as fast-paced and urgent as a wildfire. This is a haunting and mesmerizing book. If you're a fan of Bird Box, this is an even better story of survival.

If you're a fan of the Netflix shows Orange is the New Black or Manhunt then you'll love this book. Kushner's characters are all related to the justice system, and most of them are on the wrong side of it. But that doesn't make them bad people. This is a gritty portrait of people who are down on their luck.

This mother daughter project is more than just a book of knitting patterns. It’s a beautiful compilation of stories in the style of folk tales, and complex designs that are more costumes than sweaters. Gift this to the knitter, the loud dresser, or the lover of folklore in your life.

This historical novel about Madame Tussaud is dark and delightful. It's the story of a young girl who wends her way through the streets of Paris and the chaos of the French Revolution to become a skilled wax worker. Edward Carey's illustrations are equally eerie and fascinating. One of my favorite books of the year!

The dynamic duo we need! (Four more years?!) This hilarious caper finds Joe Biden feeling left out while his best friend Barack Obama vacations around the world with high-profile friends. But soon they're brought together while investigating the murder of an Amtrak train conductor. This book is perfectly corny and satirical. Thank you Andrew Shaffer!
