When Shori wakes she is lost and suffering from major brain trauma. As she recovers, the memories that surface tell an incredible story: though Shori appears to be a child, she is actually a 53-year-old member of a vampiric race called Ina. Now Shori must wade headfirst into murky Ina politics and decide who to trust, for one thing is certain: one of her Ina brethren is responsible for the slaughter that left her helpless and stripped of memory. Hugo and Nebula award-winning author Octavia Butler's last novel is engrossing, lush and terribly unsettling.

I enjoyed this book so much that I tried to take my time finishing it in an attempt to make the pleasure last a little longer. I met with very limited success.  Douglas and Connie Peterson embark on a month long excursion in Europe with their almost adult son Albie.  Their marriage is shaky and Albie is chafing at the idea of another family trip especially one that seemingly has so much at stake.  If you liked Nicholls' previous book One Day or are a Jojo Moyes fan you are going to want to read this one.

One of the most exciting new voices in comics, Emily Carroll’s unsettling fairy tales are atmospheric and lyrical, conveying a loneliness and vulnerability that connects the reader immediately with her unfortunate heroines. Carroll is a master of sowing subtle menace into the tone and settings of her stories, allowing her to achieve the most rare thing of all in horror comics—stories that are actually scary, and long before any monster appears on the page.

But somehow, despite everything from Vacation Bible School catastrophes to cleaning every inch of GAG's candy store, Black Lake turns out to be hard to hate -- and it just might be the perfect place for Treasure's family after all.
