This book made me feel like a child discovering the world of books. Fledgling is a wholly new—norm-destroying vampire mythology is explored through the eyes of the strangest protagonists I've ever encountered. This is science fiction at its most cutting and mind-bending. Months after reading it I'm still asking myself questions and dreaming about this universe. - Clara

A smaller-scale and more intimate novel than her star-system-spanning Ancillary Justice trilogy, this book is still Ann Leckie at her best: her characters are sharp-witted and understated, her world-building is rich and feels long-inhabited, and the plot hums as it follows a murder mystery/heist drama that’s really all about the protagonist’s search for place and meaning. - Stuart

There was nothing I didn’t love about this book. It follows five generations of witches, from mother to daughter, experiencing all the dangers of paranoia of the era regarding witchcraft and really female empowerment. I appreciated the way Morgan portrayed the mother/daughter relationships in all their complexities. This is Morgan’s debut novel and I’m impressed with how fantastic her writing is. This is a book that will draw both literary and fantasy fans alike. - Karena

The World of Tomorrow is a dazzling debut written with the same frenetic pace as the boozy jazz age in which it’s set. Three Irish immigrant brothers are reunited in prewar NYC—under terrible circumstances—right before the World’s Fair. Entertainment abounds as our rotating protagonists stay one step ahead of trouble. With a serpentine plot that never loses its thread, and a payoff worth the page count, it will thrill fans of Michael Chabon. - Kelly

I am not shy about being a fan of Leckie’s, and I’m happy to say that although Provenance is very different from her other books, it is still very good. It has the same sense of exploration, politics, and self-discovery that I love so much about her writing. Ingray’s story has a more intimate feel, a story of family and finding one’s place rather than the grand epic. But I found I enjoyed it all the same, and I think you will, too. - Jax

Imagine our world, with a catch - memory expires. The world is stratified into two spheres: Duos, whose memory lasts 48 hours, and Monos, who remember only the past 24. Alternating between a rare Mono/Duo married couple suspected of murder, the detective rushing to crack the case before time - and memory - runs out, and the victim’s erratic diary entries, this is a dark and twisty tale of domestic suspense that kept me hooked until the shocking end! - Flannery

The book is set in a dark future where an alien race has abducted the last surviving humans in hopes of helping them repopulate and revive an irradiated Earth. With a timeline that spans generations, Butler’s story was daring for her time and it’s still very relevant today, as she pushes the boundaries of race, gender, sexuality, and species. - Jade
