Mischling opens at the doorsteps of Auschwitz as twin sisters first enter Josef Mengele’s infamous “Zoo,” where he affronted the human soul with a series of unforgivable experiments. Told from their dueling perspectives, this story isn’t a historical Holocaust narrative—instead, it is a literary, experiential kaleidoscope, using precocious young narrators to wrest meaning from that abyss. Horrible reality here gives way to poetic, lyrical prose which is affecting, powerful, and transcendent.  —a.c.

A proud, interplanetary empire stands on the brink of destruction, war and intrigue tearing it apart. A Princess missing years ago is the last hope...or a gunrunner facing mutiny and betrayal, who does not want to go home. The fast-paced story kept me hooked, action balanced with memorable characters unraveling a deep-seated plot for the throne. If you need to escape to the stars—or to a seedy back alley—this is the book.  —Jocelyn

Yeine is the leader of a people far from the center of civilization, but the death of her mother calls her to the heart of the empire and entangles her in more than a dispute over inheritance. I was so blown away by this book that I felt shaken and exhilarated by it. Even if you don’t normally read fantasy, this is one that is so meaty, you need to try it. —Jax

Blackout is more than a memoir of drinking—it’s a revelation of recovery, with incredibly profound insights (the best kind: simple and striking) that are applicable not just to those emerging from the depths of substance abuse, but to any human seeking to live authentically. Hepola’s story of sobriety is a comment on culture, too, specifically in noting the ways that drinking can, and has, served as an assertion device for women, allowing loud freedom from the constraints of “femininity.” Hepola’s writing is clear and lovely, and Blackout is a read you won’t soon forget.  —Chorel

This is the book for the artist (anyone who wants to create) struggling with the pressure to create, be successful, do it all on their own. It’s who she wrote it for. Half of the book is stories from Amanda Palmer’s life, of friendships, relationships, discoveries, told with trademark candor. Half is meditations on what it means to make things, and be a person, in a world filled with people. All is art, and asking.  —Jocelyn

A wholly original, rich science fiction folktale steeped in the language and legends of the Caribbean. Tan-tan is a little girl lost, looking for the way home. Also, it so happens, she is the Robber Queen with a heart of gold, saving two lives for each one she takes. Her story will take you through new worlds delightful in speculative invention, yet familiar in the people and prejudices inhabiting them. —Jocelyn
