Ever want a Jane Austen novel, but heroine moves to the country side to becomes a witch instead of falling in love? Well look no fruther than Lolly Willowes! This book came highly recommended from my friend and tea extraordinaire @FridayTea. She knows I'm always looking for witchy Ace representations, too. [Clover]

When I pick up a Steinbeck novel, I know I am in for a good read. This one, his last novel published in 1961, replaced 'East of Eden' as my favorite. I was in suspense, because Ethan's integrity gets tested in various ways. Steinbeck really shines in developing each scene and character. I still see in my mind's eye several episodes of this novel.

Fat Girls Hiking is a fat activism and outdoor community with chapters throughout the US & Canada. Outdoor rec is too often fat-shaming and exclusionary in a lot of ways -  I love what FGH is doing to make these spaces more inclusive and liberating. In this book, hear directly from FGH members who share personal stories, trail reviews, and practical advice for hitting the trail, whether you're new to hiking or a seasoned outdoor adventurer!

Spanning three days after the second murder, Alex Finlay expertly guides us along the events that impacted this small New Jersey town. It was almost like watching what could have been the best episode of Criminal Minds. (I am a big fan, having seen the entire series recently).

Jawbone was one of the most gripping and unsettling books I've read in while. The story revolves around a group of upper-class teenage girls and one of their teachers. It's about the horror of becoming a woman, mother-daughter relationships, as well as a sort of meta-commentary on horror itself. This is the first English language translation of celebrated Ecuadorian author Mónica Ojeda and I can't wait for more translations of her work. [Adrienne]

Dead Collections is a whirlwind romance between an archivist vampire and a widow on a journey of self-discovery. Not only is Sol navigating "life" as a vampire, but as a trans man whose transition slowed after his death. This book is sharp, funny, sexy, and full of so much heart. And, you do not need to like vampire stories generally to fall in love with this book, as I did! [Adrienne]

Structured as a series of interview excerpts with employees - some human, some humanoid - on a doomed spaceship. Eerie, foreboding, and darkly comedic, this slim novel tackles big questions on the nature of work and being human. One of the most thought-provoking pieces of fiction I've read in a long time.
