Gather The Daughters by Jennie...

<i>Gather The Daughters</i> by Jennie Melamed

What if The Handmaid’s Tale took place in a separatist cult, ensconced on an island? That’s exactly what I think went through Melamed’s head while coming up with this novel. Gather the Daughters is a haunting tale of a society where women are controlled but children are free, and a young woman on the cusp of that transition discovers […]

Driven to Temptation by Melia ...

<i>Driven to Temptation</i> by Melia Alexander

Driven to Temptation is a fun and flirty romance with a lot of heat. It’s a forbidden love (boss-employee) with a touch of enemies-to-lovers (he initially hates her but that doesn’t last long) that would serve as the perfect poolside read this summer.

Dissident by Cecilia London

<i>Dissident</i> by Cecilia London

  Christ on a cracker, y’all – THIS BOOK. No shit, THIS BOOK. Do you enjoy dystopian fiction like Hunger Games or Divergent but wish all the good dystopians weren’t about teenagers? Can you not get enough of House of Cards? Or wish the West Wing was still happening? Into reading detailed marathon sex sessions between consenting adults? Then pick up this series […]

A School for Unusual Girls by ...

<i>A School for Unusual Girls</i> by Kathleen Baldwin

Oh my gosh was I gripped by this book. I adored Baldwin’s writing and how she wove her characters. I would recommend this one to readers interested in strong women and early 19th century history, whether they’re in the YA genre or not. While I wouldn’t use it as lecture material (there are a few […]
