I’ve decided to highlight books I’d love to read but don’t currently have the time. Every week, I’ll be issuing a post to let others know about these interesting books.

Everyone knows I love a good Dystopian novel. I love books that can show me how society can take an idea and run so far with it, it’s a nightmare. This book is about a society in which there’s no jobs. Society is divided into workers and citizens, with citizens being the lower class. Given that we read daily about how increasingly more jobs are being lost to automation and the global race to the bottom, it’s an interesting ‘what if’- what if automation and technology remove the need for most human workers? How would society deal with that?You can find the author’s website with a book trailer and interview here: T. B. O’Neill
Androcide (Intel 1 Book 5) is about investigators in New York City who’ve linked gruesome murders to a man-murdering serial killer known as the Eunuch Maker. They enter a cat-and-mouse game with the killer that can prove deadly.

Sparkle is a Fantasy/Horror Young Adult novel from Arin Lee Kambitsis. What if the
monsters that like eating kids were real? What if an ancient one from the time of Eden started killing people in your town? What if it thought you looked tasty?

This is an imaginative, Medeival retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale. This is told from the point of view of her step-sisters. After all, there’s always more than one side to any story. This book is at The Step-Spinsters.
