Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton

"Buxton spins a fresh, alarming apocalypse from the perspectives of intelligent, communicative animals in her hilarious debut . . . S.T.'s complicated personality and the masterful blend of humor and tragedy make this novel an eloquent, emotional exploration of survival during an unthinkable cataclysm."
Publishers Weekly
Motherland: A Memoir of Love, Loathing, and Longing 
 by Elissa Altman
“Rarely has a mother-daughter relationship been excavated with such honesty. Elissa Altman is a beautiful, big-hearted writer who mines her most central subject: her gorgeous, tempestuous, difficult mother, and the terrain of their shared life. The result is a testament to the power of love and family.”
—Dani Shapiro, author of  Inheritance
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware
"Ware cleverly puts a high-tech spin on [ The Turn of the Screw’s ] gothic foundations of spellbinding menace set in a remote cavernous mansion with mysterious locked doors and a spooky garden… Ware’s James-like embroidery of the strange and sinister produces a  Turn of the Screw  with cellphones and Teslas that will enthrall today’s readers… it will not disappoint."
—Booklist , starred review
