Semiosis by Sue Burke

This debut sci-fi novel is an engrossing tale of space colonization and alien first contact on a world full of sentient plants. The saga spans 100 years and 6 generations, each with its own unique story. Infusing plants with sentience and agency gives the book an eerie quality that’s hard to shake. Thought-provoking concepts, excellent world-building, and solid character development. - Trey

River of Teeth by Sarah Gailey

In this action-packed novella, Gailey imagines what the U.S. would have looked like if we had gone through with the proposed 1910 plan to import hippos for meat. This (ill-conceived) plan was real. Galey creates a U.S. filled with one of the most dangerous creatures in the world. Follow this diverse band of "hoppers" as they jaunt through the southern swamps. - MJ

Deaf Republic by Ilya Kaminsky

A poetic parable of an occupied town which refuses to hear soldiers, Deaf Republic is the most unique and profound anti-war work I’ve ever read. Kaminsky, himself a hard-of-hearing immigrant from Ukraine, re-envisions disability as a powerful act of defiance and silence as “the invention of the hearing.” - Ksenia

Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi

Children of Blood and Bone was one of my favorite fantasy novels of 2018, and I’ve eagerly awaited the sequel from the moment I finished it. Tomi Adeyemi is one of fantasy’s best new voices—the world building and characters are superbly drawn, gorgeously rendered, and very human: Zélie and Amari are brave, charismatic, at times afraid and unsure, but always willing to rise to the challenges thrown their way. I can’t wait to see where they go next! - Stuart
