A spectacular debut. These two wholly disparate stories both feature rich dialogue, complicated characters and deep questions - and a final coda at the end answers some very fundamental questions. You will definitely be hearing about this writer again and this book is a wonderful place to start.

A painting links a rare female artist of the Dutch Golden Age with a scion and grad student in "Mad Men" era Manhattan.  Developed, simpatico characters and finely wrought double-crossing in past and present Netherlands, Manhattan, and Sydney make this a very satisfying read. Great for summer, travel, or book groups.

When his childhood best friend dies in an apparent murder-suicide, Aaron Falk goes back to the hometown he's been avoiding for years because of the murder of a girl that the town suspected him for--and one for which his best friend lied as his alibi. Tense and atmospheric, I immediately reached for the sequel.

The SecUnit who (secretly) refers to itself as "Murderbot" hacked its own governor module, so it could go rogue and kill all the humans if it wanted, but it would rather spend its time watching Sanctuary Moon. Unfortunately, its humans keep getting themselves into danger. Even more unfortunately, Murderbot actually finds itself caring about these humans. It's hard being a heartless killing machine when you have feelings.

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

Few books moved me as a young reader more than Sabriel. When few well rounded female characters were available for a twelve-year-old, Sabriel was a blessing. I stumbled across the book by accident and was immediately immersed in a world where one girl stands on the border of death and protects the living from its denizens. Sabriel must quickly come into her birthright and save her father from the final gateway of death and in the process, save her world.

You didn’t know you needed a Civil War era zombie book—but you do. In Dread Nation, Justina Ireland draws a compelling, tense, page turner that both makes your heart pound in suspense and makes you think about race with its nuanced writing. In short, it is genius, and you need to read it. (Even if you don't like zombie books.)
