Christopher Moore plunges you back into the modern-day troubles of a rag-tag bunch of reluctant death merchants in San Francisco, threatened by the return of terrifying and disgusting evil, and bonus entertainment from the adorable, foul-mouthed Big Death Sophie. Whether you’re just after the next part of a story begun in A Dirty Job, or are addicted to Moore’s trademark quirky prose and irrepressibly irreverent world view, Secondhand Souls is here for you.  --Jocelyn

I’ll admit I picked up this book more for Ginsberg than for O’Connor, but reading about the similarities and differences in their paths to the Supreme Court and their experiences thereafter was fascinating. I learned a lot about the incredible battles they fought for women’s equality, about the way the Supreme Court functions, and about these two culturally transformative Justices. It’s accessible and entertaining, and should be widely read.  --Nici

It's fin de siècle Paris. The Eiffel Tower graces the skyline, intelligentsia grace the cafes, and Toulouse-Latrec graces the brothels—as do most artists. Baker Lucien Lessard longs to be one of them! Soon, however, his painting and, of course, a girl, lead him into a mystery of art and human nature that stretches from Van Gogh's suicide to the dawn of civilization.

The mix of political and historical details lends a depth to this vivid thriller. Locke plots a twisting path that has many subtle aspects as her main character, Jay Porter, tries to keep a murder from messing up his life. Set in the 1980s, the story also takes many trips back to Jay’s more radical youth as he tries to reconcile his past, his present, and his sense of morality. It’s part social commentary, part nail-biter, and altogether highly recommended.  —Nici

Looking for a great escape that will stimulate your imagination, accelerate your pulse, and leave you utterly amazed? Trust me, you want to pick up The Bees. This unique novel is the story of Flora 717: a bee, in a hive, who isn’t quite like the other drones and can’t quite toe the party line. Paull’s story takes very true-to-life bee biology and behavior as its starting point and builds a fictionalized culture on top of it that is cruel and beautiful—both alien and familiar. Flora 717 will steal your heart.
