Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan

Manhattan Beach is stunning. Read the first page and sigh with immense pleasure at having started something magnificent. Set in Brooklyn around the Great Depression and WWII, we follow young Anna Kerrigan, one of the first female Naval Yard divers, as she seeks to unravel her father’s mysterious disappearance. This may seem a straightforward historical novel, but with Egan’s peerless writing and keen emotional intelligence, it plumbs the depths of human will, connection, and reinvention. - Melinda

The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

This prequel to Hoffman’s ever-beloved Practical Magic traces the adolescent years of the three Owens siblings—the descendants of a witch and a witch-hunter—as they discover their secret, feared ancestral gift. What begins with whimsical wishes and parlor tricks spirals into the manifestation of the Owens’ curse: to their bloodline, falling in love is fatal. Hoffman’s quick storytelling is as delightful as ever, mystical yet light-footed, weaving family lore into the teens’ journeys of self-acceptance. - Julia

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

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
