Bones & All (2015)
"You'll be captivated by this sympathetic female killer who ups the ante in every imaginable way."
Luckiest Girl Alive (2015)
"Luckiest Girl Alive is a wickedly well-plotted page-turner that lifts back the veil of Ani FaNelli's glamour and privilege to tread amongst the sharp emotional thorns lying beneath. Knoll's novel dazzles with humor, cultural insight, and thematic heft."
Red Clocks (2018)
"Hilarious, terrifying, and masterfulthis pitch-perfect, timely novel reflects the horror and absurdity of our political landscape with a brilliance that ensures the book's timelessness. It's as riotously fun as it is chilling. Zumas has produced a poignant, wickedly sharp classic."
The Pisces (2018)
"A peerless combination of heartbreak and horniness, this novel's journey through the surreal throes of desire is a trip you'll want to take again and again."
Invitation to a Bonfire (2018)
"Engrossing, endearing, phenomenal - this book will set you on fire. In this brilliant novel, Adrienne Celt's lush prose and mousetrap plot deliver a wild wonder."
