Amanda says: This book left me in a deep well of hopefulness and salt air. GILMORE GIRLS by way of IN THE HEIGHTS, DON'T DATE ROSA SANTOS snuck straight into my south Florida soul and drowned me in love, community, and cafe con leche. It was catharsis, it was a sharp percussive beat against my heart, and it was just what I needed. Buy it!

Eileen says, "“Checks all the best boxes for me: psychological thriller; twisty, macabre crimes; protagonists with interesting flaws or characteristics; and atmospheric. Now I must read Splinter in the Blood, the first book featuring Detectives Ruth Lake and Greg Carver. A killer considers himself first and foremost an artist who leverages social media to promote his "work" and subsequently becomes addicted to how he's trending and number of followers - and flies into a deadly rage when challenged by followers or the media. Hasn't happened yet (I don't think), but it could. Detective Greg Carver, recently returned to duty after a savage attack by a sadistic killer, struggles to deal with his PTSD and to stay focused while adapting to his ability to see emotional state via auras, which added an unexpected dimension.”

Amanda says: Neverwhere meets Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return. A smog of stories that still managed to provide a clear through line, with the intricate, immersive details we all loved in Night Circus. Unbelievably good.
