Anyone by Charles Soule shows the potential of what we can do with modern technology when a woman, looking for the cure to Alzheimer's, accidentally discovers a way to transfer your consciousness into another body.

If you like British murder mysteries, this is the book for you. Anthony Horowitz weaves together two fantastic mysteries, a classic whodunit and a contemporary mystery. I couldn’t stop thinking about this book until I finished it and Horowitz left me wanting more of this incredible book.

It truly is a long way to a small, angry planet as a motley crew made up of aliens, humans, and AI journey through space to the far reaches of the universe in this exciting, adventurous, and cozy sort of space opera. Chambers restores your faith not only in science fiction but also in humanity. One of the best sci-fi books I have read in awhile!

Published: Back Bay Books - April 14th, 2020

Madeline Miller’s Circe reimagines one of the most common Greek stories, giving a voice to Circe, a banished witch, that paints her as a multifaceted and evolving character. As Circe learns about herself and as she struggles between the worlds of the gods and mortals, Miller expertly gives us a feminist slant on the Odyssey. Even if you aren’t a fan of Greek mythology, you will not be able to put this book down! This is one of my all time favorite books!

Published: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt - September 22nd, 2020

This book transformed, enraged, devastated, and comforted me as a 22-year-old on the cusp of the millennial generation (born 1998). Petersen's methodical dissection of the economic and cultural odds stacked against this generation is intensely researched and entirely accessible. I especially enjoyed the way she broke down how historical trends, like the decline of labor unions and the rise of temp work, brought us to the economic position we're in today.  I recommend this book to anyone who thinks millennials are lazy or entitled, and of course to millennials themselves. It really changed my view of the world.

Published: Penguin Press - June 4th, 2019

This intricately woven novel is written in the form of an immigrant boy's letter to his illiterate mother. It touches on themes of war, PTSD, race, immigration, queerness, and the violence of American masculinity. I believe the greatness of this book can only be fully understood by sampling some of its best passages, so here's one:

“You once told me that the human eye is god's loneliest creation. How so much of the world passes through the pupil and still it holds nothing. The eye, alone in its socket, doesn't even know there's another one, just like it, an inch away, just as hungry, as empty.”  

Ocean Vuong is a poet first, and it shows. This is the best novel I read in 2019. If you love his writing, check out his collection of poetry, "Night Sky With Exit Wounds."
