Lost Children Archive is a book that will undoubtedly move you. It’s the dual story of a family driving west, their relationships on a hinge; and children migrating across the southern border into the US. Valeria Luiselli writes sharply and poignantly, and she’ll leave you emotional, and with thoughtful questions.

This should be titled Little Wonderfuls instead of Little Weirds! But weird and wonderful it is. Jenny Slate does more than bare her soul - she removes her brain from her skull and allows the reader to poke around in there and find the interesting details that make her human and inspire her creativity. I recommend the audio book too, from Libro.fm!

A man on the run travels across the west while a woman on the frontier tries to protect her home and family. Tea Obreht's new book is fantastic! Filled with complex characters, mysterious beasts, and a little bit of magic, I couldn't put this one down.

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.

Like in her previous novels, Helen Oyeyemi takes a traditional fairytale and spins it on it's head. Gingerbread is a brilliant take on "Hansel and Gretel" and other famed tales, cleverly blending race, working class rights, and feminism with magical realism.

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.
