Earthlings by Sayaka Murata

One of the strangest and most bizarre books I’ve ever had the pleasure to read. I loved it. Murata brings out the worst of societal pressures and what it means to be an Earthling or an alien. Murata has a way of writing characters who rationalize the worst possible situations and make it their own. It is an incredibly dark, at times humorous and absurd. I felt such a huge array of emotions empathizing with the variety of characters. This is the first time I’ve read from her and I really look forward to reading more from Murata and the translator!

Jack by Marilynne Robinson

I don’t even know where to start. Marilynne Robinson is legendary and her mind is as infinite and precise and unfathomable as the cosmos.

Lightfall by Tim Probert

A young girl and an aspiring hero on an epic quest they don’t even recognize? Yes, please! Tim Probert’s tale starts small and grows with each reveal as threads braid into a unique world history of magic, calamity, and dangerous forces of evil. With evocative panel-to-panel work wild diversity of otherworldly races, he sets up mystery after mystery, tantalizing with clues and leaving us breathless for the second volume of Lightfall: The Girl & The Galdurian, as familiar as your favorite dessert but made exotic by an imaginative chef!
