The Other Black Girl
“This is the tale of two Black women co-workers in the cutthroat publishing industry trying to determine if they are friends or enemies.

Seven Days in June
A REESE WITHERSPOON BOOK CLUB PICK!
“Tia Williams’ book is a smart, sexy testament to Black joy, to the well of strength from which women draw, and to tragic romances that mature into second chances. I absolutely loved it.”— Jodi Picoult, #1 NYT bestselling author of The Book of Two Ways and Small Great Things

The City We Became
The Great Cities Trilogy: Book #1
If you enjoyed Lovecraft Country, then you’ll love The City We Became.
“Enthralling and just a half step away from reality. The audio book performance adds a depth and resonance that transforms the text giving an already incredible read tangible texture.”Tegan, Odyssey Bookshop
The Vanishing Half
“The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett definitely lives up to the glowing reviews it has been receiving. The story reveals an interesting perspective on this history of race in the United States, while also telling a universal story of difficult decisions that change the course of life forever. Bennett doesn't offer pretty bows to tie up her narrative, but a realistic portrait of what we will sacrifice on behalf of our futures.”Tina, Leaves Book and Tea Shop
“Perhaps I have a different perspective on this book because I have a younger brother who is a Black, 20-something man in sales, but this book presents an evocative, honest, complex portrait of being a BIPOC person in a white-dominant workplace (albeit one that is high-powered, sales-driven, and New York City-based). This is a book that allows a reader to be seen if this is their experience, but also for a reader to learn about a different reality if this is not their own. Black Buck is a tightly woven, contemporary debut from an author to watch.”BrocheAroe Fabian, River Dog Book Co.

The Fifth Season
The Broken Earth: Book #1
“The Fifth Season is an amazing, dark, and gripping work that will hook you from the first sentence. I cannot express to you how much this book stunned me. Robin's narration is well paced and engaging. While I wish this was a book for everyone to listen to, it isn't; destruction, trauma, and rage follow the women and girls who tell their stories. This book is about the end of the world, that you actually don't want to stop reading.”Jessica, Once Upon A Time
