Neverworld Wake is the perfect book for those of you who aren't quite ready to give up on those creepy October vibes. It's like Inception with a murder mystery and also GHOSTS (?). Much like the characters, you'll find yourself unable to escape this constantly-twisting tale until it's finally untangled. I couldn't put it down!

 I think the blurb smack dab on the front of the book, the one from Roxane Gay herself, sums it up best. Early in the book, Juliet writes a letter to her feminist writer icon, saying, “I know you’re not a Magic 8 ball. You’re just some lady who wrote a book. But I fall asleep with that book in my arms because words protect hearts and I’ve got this ache in my chest that won’t go away.” Juliet Takes A Breath is a book you can fall asleep holding.
