Trash Sex Magic (2004)
Jennifer Stevenson
"This just absolutely rocks. It's lyrical, it's weird and it's sexy in a very funky way."
thumb
The Heroines (2007)
Eileen Favorite
"Funny and tender... a chance to see Scarlett O'Hara and Emma Bovary off duty."
thumb
Your Presence Is Requested At Suvanto (2010)
Maile Chapman
"Your Presence Is Requested At Suvanto is a lucid dream of a book, it is extremely clear and unnerving and full of gorgeously written surprises and frightening marvels."
thumb
Room (2010)
Emma Donoghue
"Room is a book to read in one sitting. When it's over you look up: the world looks the same but you are somehow different and that feeling lingers for days."
thumb
Warm Bodies (2010)
(Warm Bodies, book 1)
Isaac Marion
"A strange and unexpected treat."
thumb
This Burns My Heart (2011)
Samuel Park

thumb
The Little Bride (2011)
Anna Solomon
"Intensely imagined... Elegantly written."
thumb
The Night Circus (2011)
Erin Morgenstern
"The Night Circus made me happy. Playful and intensely imaginative, Erin Morgenstern has created the circus I have always longed for and she has populated it with dueling love-struck magicians, precocious kittens, hyper-elegant displays of beauty and complicated clocks. This is a marvelous book."
thumb
The Monster's Daughter (2016)
Michelle Pretorius
"[A] roller-coaster ride of a novel. I loved it."
thumb
Good for Nothing (2017)
Brandon S Graham
"...Very funny, painfully observant, no-holds-barred...A brilliant book..."
thumb
The Ready-Made Thief (2017)
Augustus Rose
"The Readymade Thief is smart and strange, full of lovely Duchampian tricks and treats. Augustus Rose has infused his thriller with the true Dada spirit, nothing is quite what it seems. I loved it."
thumb
What Should Be Wild (2018)
Julia Fine
"Delightful and darkly magical. Julia Fine has written a beautiful modern myth, a coming-of-age story for a girl with a worrisome power over life and death. I loved it."
