This one especially, but really anything by Paul Goble was among my favorite books as a child.

The Plover: A Novel Cover Image

Published: Picador - March 31st, 2015

I got this book in the bargain bin at the store, and it was the best thing I've read in awhile. He is a master with words, and his metaphors made this land-lover long to be in a boat on the ocean.

The Secret History of Wonder Woman Cover Image

Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Vintage - July 7th, 2015

Wonder Woman was the brainchild of a very interesting man with ties to the birth control movement and women's suffrage. This book tells all.

Oryx and Crake (MaddAddam Trilogy #2) Cover Image
ISBN: 9780385721677
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days

This is a post-apocalyptic tale that will leave you questioning whether a civilization can become too advanced. I recommend this book and the entire Year of the Flood Series by Margaret Atwood
