Hannibal by Patrick Hunt

Much like Hannibal himself, this book punches far above its weight class. Although stripped for brevity, it hits with the impact of a tome two or three times its size. Hunt deftly tells the story, both personal and public, of one of the world’s greatest generals. - Ian

A Criminal Magic by Lee Kelly

As a fan of both books about the 1920s and books about magic, this novel is firmly in my literary wheelhouse. I really enjoyed how the story swapped between the main characters who were on either side of the law. Joan as a magic bootlegger trying to provide for her family and Alex, an undercover cop, trying to gain redemption for his father's crimes. - Karena

Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka

When teenager Lucinda Hayes is found murdered in her suburban town, all eyes shift to her quiet and decidedly different neighbor, Cameron Whitley. But in this perfectly-paced, suspenseful novel, the reader is kept guessing of the true nature of their connection and helps us realize that what we see on the surface might not always be the truth.  Danya Kukafka’s breakout debut will grab you early on and propel you to the finish where you just want to re-read it all over again. - Casey

Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward

In a small town along the Mississippi coast, one American family struggles with the ebbs and flows of a roller-coaster life grappling with addiction, connection, imprisonment, belonging and multi-generational strife. Jesmyn Ward, author of National Book Award winner Salvage the Bones, writes with gloriously, lyrical prose – a true mix of magical realism and honest observation of human nature which fully demonstrates that she is one of the greatest American authors writing today. - Casey

The Dragon Behind the Glass by Emily Voight

Exotic animal drama microhistories are my favorite subject, and this fits the bill perfectly. In her hunt for arowanas, a grotesque, ancient-looking fish that can command up to $150,000 for a single specimen, Voight finds herself searching through dark jungles, convention halls, and New York apartments. - Rachel

Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

In this harrowing autobiography, Ali boldly narrates the journey from her violent and impoverished upbringing in Somalia’s capital city, Mogadishu, to a career in Dutch politics. At times horrifying, her tale is especially poignant today, as refugees are so frequently being turned around at the threshold. - Jade

The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu by Joshua Hammer

I’ve got a soft spot for stories about librarians fighting to save their libraries and this hits it for sure. One man builds a library to save centuries of Islamic manuscripts. A world famous Tuareg blues musician inspired by Al Qaeda may help to destroy them all. Can they be spirited away before the bonfire? - Dave

Borderline by Mishell Baker

This book is what you get if you add fae magic to “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.” Millie is a delight, with all her dysfunction and her very real struggles with various disabilities. L.A. looms large as a character in its own right; the book is a kind of love/hate letter to the entertainment industry. I enjoyed the snark, loved the characters and was thrilled by the mystery. - Jax

She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb

This remains one of my favorite books. We meet Dolores Price at age 13 and stay with her until middle age. Along the way Dolores attempts various personas, deals with or avoids her various traumas, and tries to temper her wise-ass personality with her longing to be loved. Unpredictable, funny, and emotionally wrenching, She’s Come Undone is truly unforgettable. - Chorel
