See How Small: A Novel

See How Small is a brutal, necessary and near perfect novel.


Unbecoming: A Novel

If you are looking for a modern suspenseful novel similar to The Goldfinch, then I think this would be a great starting place!


Honeydew: Stories

Ah, Edith Pearlman! Like the great writers on whose shoulders she stands, she works her paradoxes upon us.


The Deep

The Deep is actually quite good; an effective horror yarn, well-versed in atmospheric tension and a good dose of mutation-style gore.


The Just City

If you’re the kind of reader who keeps Edith Hamilton’s Mythology and Plato’s works handy at all times, and enjoys contemplating hard-core questions of sentience, justice, and free will, I’m confident that you’ll love The Just City.


Isabella: The Warrior Queen

Isabella offers the reader a deeply satisfying portrait of a fascinating and complex woman.


The Happiest People in the World: A Novel

Clarke orchestrates the inevitable collision by beckoning each character from across the world and assembling them at the Lumber Lodge under the watchful eye of the moose.


Indigo: A Novel

This is a book that deserves to be read. Do you want the pitch? It’s like Ned Bauman and Tom McCarthy had a drink with Jennifer Egan and wrote an exquisite corpse.


Outline

“Outline,” which reflects details from the author’s life as well as the narrator’s fascination with autobiography, renders everyday encounters in precise, almost anthropological detail.


The Internet Is Not the Answer

“The Internet Is Not the Answer” supports its convincing narrative with startling numbers and research cataloged over roughly 40 pages worth of endnotes.


Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America

Hers is an important contribution to the sustainable agricultural genre.


The Deep

The Deep is not for the faint of heart. It is not for anyone who gets overly attached to animals or characters in books.


Amnesia: A novel

For all Mr. Carey’s formidable powers and the righteous fire he means to light here, “Amnesia” isn’t one of his most memorable efforts.


The Rabbit Back Literature Society

The Rabbit Back Literature Society is a voyeuristic literary mystery with bits of Blue Velvet and shades of The Shadow of the Wind, and it would not be a better book if it were sweeter or more straightforward.


Whipping Boy

In masterfully unraveling decades of crime, cruelty, deception, and repression, he probes the nature of what it means to have an enemy—and what it costs to give others so much power over us.


As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the Princess Bride

As You Wish made me want to throw myself into everything Princess Bride.


Mobile Library: A Novel

The story itself is a compelling and entertaining read, but it doesn’t linger past the final page.


Glow: A novel

Glow is ultimately a story about rhythms, and people who live outside them—the revolutionaries and corporate powers scheming beyond legal means, drug users seeing the world through skewed perspectives, insomniacs whose nocturnal lives set them apart.
