Published: Knopf Publishing Group - May 26th, 2015

In his latest novel, Bacigalupi leads readers into an all to plausible dystopian future where resources are scarce and the question on everyone's mind remains the same: what will happen when the water runs out? From would-be assassins, to journalists and Texas immigrants, everyone has a stake in the answer to this question. As the American Southwest continues to hemorrhage water and people become more desperate for dwindling resources, Bacigalupi plumbs the depths of humanity and emotional connections in a world that is increasingly predicated on the belief of every man for himself. ~ Reviewed by Cheryl Cornwell

Haunting, irreverent, beautiful - the list could go on and on. In this set of 9 tales, Atwood has created a cast of characters reminiscent of Anderson or Angela Carter - perhaps this is the love child of both. ~ Reviewed by Cheryl Cornwell

Published: Oxford University Press, USA - June 1st, 2015

Lim's superb investigative history reflects on a China still suffering the effects of Tiananmen 25 years on. Despite the passage of a quarter of a century, the details of that day in 1989 remain obscure and often (intentionally) forgotten. An in-depth look at the human cost of history. ~ Reviewed by Cheryl Cornwell

A complex story that highlights the reality that there are always two sides to a story, no matter the outcome of the situation. Maciel takes you inside the mind of a bully and pulls you along from feelings of resentment to those of atonement. Highly recommended. ~ Reviewed by Cheryl Cornwell
