Beasts of the Earth

From reptiles in the swamp hunting prey, to reptilian men, cold and calculating, beasts feature in this disturbing novel. Best for readers who don’t mind brutal if the prose is beautiful.

The Men

Intriguing, but will be most appealing to readers with a high tolerance for the unresolved.

Geographies of the Heart

Narrated in turns by Sarah, Al, and Glennie, this lovely novel is tender, moving, and oh so relatable to anyone dealing with the challenges of raising a family, caring for aging parents or grandparents, or both.

Unlikely Animals

Embracing the undercurrent of fantasy in Everton, readers will contemplate how easy it is to write someone off as unredeemable or unhinged when maybe their brain works in a way most do not understand.

Read-Alikes for ‘The Noise’ by James Patterson and J. D. Barker | LibraryReads



Tucker holds nothing back in this debut novel, describing addiction in unflinching terms, as well as human connection, vulnerability, and perseverance. The subject matter and descriptions in this book won’t be palatable to every reader, but those who finish this work won’t soon forget it.


Xavier might be the main course of this tale, but there are many components here, including the role and power of women, broken government, poverty, prejudice, and judgment, all richly blended in an unforgettable work of magical realism by Ross (Come Let Us Sing Anyway).

Highly recommended and perfectly timed for today’s uncertain world. [See Prepub Alert, 4/1/2020.]


In the Valley: Stories and a Novella Based on Serena

At turns dark, craggy, and heart-wrenching, Rash’s writing is never easy, but it is also lovely, moving, and rich in history and culture, just like the Appalachian region it so beautifully captures. Highly recommended for both those just discovering Rash and for returning readers. [See Prepub Alert, 2/4/20.]
