Peng Shepherd recommends
The Luminous Dead (2019)
"Ghostly, mysterious, and terrifying, The Luminous Dead will have you rooted to the spot until the very last page."
Light from Other Stars (2019)
"A poignant, beautiful tale that perfectly captures humanity's timeless struggle to reconcile love and loss. As Nedda Papas faces mystery and danger both in the orange groves of her childhood and the vastness of space as an adult, Light from Other Stars keenly but tenderly illuminates the almost magical limits of science, the sacrifices that passion requires, and what it truly means to be a family."
The Ten Thousand Doors of January (2019)
Alix E Harrow
"The Ten Thousand Doors of January begins as a simple adventure, but like its mysteriously transportive doors, leads deeper and deeper the further you read. Each page dazzles with things to be discovered: a mansion of priceless artifacts, a secret journal, a tantalizing quest through strange and beautiful places, and a love story that spans time, worlds and magic. I couldn't put it down."
A Beginning at the End (2020)
"Not just an apocalyptic thriller, but also a timely reminder of what is most important in life-family, love, and hope."
