The Best of Connie Willis

Connie Willis is one of my top authors of all time. While pushing the limits of imagination to explore future and past, her true talent is in communicating the immutability of the human identity. These stories and novellas run a gamut of mystery, farce, despair, and haunting hope. Spend your summer having your heart broken and soul lifted on a trip through time and space with this marvelous author.

The Twelve by Justin Cronin

A very different post-apocalyptic vampire story. This is the second of the trilogy—returning to previous characters as well as introducing new ones. It’s an epic saga, intricately detailed and full of piercingly dramatic moments.  Be prepared to move back and forth in time, get to know and care about multiple characters, and be glad you can go out at night without being eaten!

Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction

Not what you’re thinking. I mean, yes—there’s sex. But really, what else would you do if you could stop time every time you orgasm, besides robbing banks? Especially with a library at stake? Not to mention (hopefully) true love? This book is as ridiculously fun as it sounds—but also heartbreakingly true about sex, love, and growing alone, until you miraculously find that someone who actually understands. Pretty much the best thing since SAGA.

Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

Looking for something to fill that Name of the Wind or Game of Thrones void? Look no further! Don’t listen to the talk of swash-buckling on the back cover, this is a book about thieves. Not just any thieves, think Ocean’s 11 con men, wonderfully dastardly and incredibly clever. Set against a backdrop of a fantasy version of Venice, this is one you won’t be able to put down.

Territory by Emma Bull

In 1881, Tombstone, Arizona is the place to be if you’re looking to make your fortune, as long as you don’t irritate the Earp brothers! You may think you know the legend but you’ve never read it like this! Emma Bull is a terrific writer, and she brings magic to Tombstone in a big way with this atmospheric, engrossing Western fantasy filled with characters of all shades. Territory is a really good book.

Jennifer Government by Max Barry

In this witty political satire, the government is privatized and capitalism has turned into a lethal game. Hack Nike is drawn into a nefarious scheme to gun down customers who purchase his company's extremely exclusive new sneakers. When Hack’s plan to hand off his murderous responsibilities goes horribly awry, he is pursued by the relentless Jennifer Government. Think Office Space meets 1984, with more software viruses and assassinations.

River of Stars

I’m a sucker for books with intriguing characters and beautiful writing, and this one hits the spot. This book has courtly politics, epic scope, and a light touch of fantasy—everything one might want. The story keeps the personal interactions center stage and makes the reader feel deeply connected to the characters and their struggle, while presenting a lavishly reimagined China. If you like politics, incredible world building, and fantastic characters, this is an excellent read.

The Quick

It’s so hard for me to talk about this book without giving anything away. A thoughtful poet moves to London, finds romance in an unexpected way, and has an excellent time being young and in love until he encounters an exclusive, mysterious club of ageless men who subsist on blood. Told in both compelling narratives and intriguing journal entries, Lauren Owen’s debut is a beautifully written love letter to the genre.

The Girl with All the Gifts

The only world that 10-year-old Melanie has ever known is her solitary cell and the armed guards who transport her from it for a few hours each day. When that world is shattered, Melanie begins to delve into her past, all the while hurtling into an uncertain future. It’s a zombie tale with lots of heart, plenty of gore, and an unforgettable heroine; a story about the undead that really examines what it means to be human.
