Published: William Morrow - April 27th, 2021

An absolutely incredible concept brought to life by a stunning new voice in literature. I simply could not put this book down, I had to live in this world as much as possible. We get to know our two protagonists so utterly completely, as they live their lives, but differently, over and over again. This novel has time travel, mystery, exploration of self, and at its heart, true love. Just the best kind of storytelling. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

Published: Del Rey - April 12th, 1985

A delightfully eerie collection of short stories from the master of science fiction and fantasy. Bradbury's special gift in his subtle horror storytelling is that you aren't necessarily frightened while reading his stories, but after a few hours or even days go by, the stories come back to you and leave the creepy feeling that maybe some of the tales weren't fictional after all... ~ Reviewed by Laura Knapp

Published: Ballantine Books - October 28th, 2014

I have yet to devour any book as quickly as The Martian, which tells the story of NASA astronaut Mark Watney and his harrowing solitude stranded on Mars. Spun against a backdrop of accessible (but very real) science, Weir’s sci-fi thriller is overflowing with gallows humor, nail-biting suspense, and a pervasive faith in the triumph of the human spirit. Pick it up. You might not be able to put it back down. ~ Reviewed by Digby Baker-Porazinski

Published: Bantam - January 29th, 2013

This brief collection by Martin captures all the wonder and expansive world-building of Game of Thrones, but replaces the darkness and violence with humor and hope. Haviland Tuf is an enigmatic and charismatic protagonist, and through his escapades in a frightful and colorful universe we learn as much about our own sense of morality as we do about his. ~ Reviewed by Digby Baker-Porazinski

Published: Harper Voyager - July 5th, 2016

A humorous, familial romp through the stars with a colorful range of characters. The meandering plot won't be for everyone, but if "cozy sci-fi" were a genre, this book would be the poster child. ~ Reviewed by Claire Bennet
