This is such an artfully done psychological horror novel that though I felt like reading it in one go, I had to periodically put it down. It's a spine-tingling, horrifying, moving, emotional ride. Even when I thought I knew what was going on, the novel took me to a different place (do not peek at the afterword, you will be spoiled!). Catriona Ward is definitely a must-read horror writer.

Summer Fun is an absolutely wild ride of obsession, music fandom, and trans identity. It shimmers with a particular queer high magic, a spell that's beyond sentences. It is a new form of an epistolary novel that immerses you in Thornton's vision of 1960s New Mexico and the messy, complex inner world of the characters. If you loved Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl, by Andrea Lawlor, or Vernon Subutex, by Virginie Despentes, this is your next read.

Johnson's Enemy of All Mankind is an account of a pirate raid wrapped in both a biography and the larger history of empire and trade building. The biography traces the life of Henry Every, one of the most notorious pirates of the late 17th century, and recounts his attack on a Munghal ship, an incident that had deep repercussions for the East India Company and British-Indian relations. Johnson is incredibly good at telling an engaging story while also keeping an eye on the larger picture of how this bit of history influenced international power shifts and led to the formation of modern businesses and corporations
