Cover Art for Artemis Cover Art for Autonomous Cover Art for The Salt Line

Artemis by Andy Weir 

With over 3.5 million copies of his bestselling debut The Martian in print, following that up will be no small task  but Weir seems up to the challenge. Artemis is a heist story set in a city on the Moon with the story and technology very much set in the real world. It's sure to be enjoyed by science fiction and non-science fiction readers alike.

Newitz is the founder of io9, a popular science and sci-fi blog, and the former editor-in-chief of Gizmodo. Her eagerly anticipated debut features a swashbuckling pharmaceutical pirate and a robot who fall in love while racing to end a drug epidemic. Is freedom possible in a culture where everything, even people, can be owned?

Salt Line by Holly Goddard Jones  

A literary dystopian novel where the United States’ borders have receded behind a salt line that protects its citizens from deadly disease carrying ticks. Few venture outside of the safe zone, except for those willing to pay a fortune to see what is left of nature. The novel follows one of those groups on an adventure outside the border and at the center of a murderous plot.

Familiar faces from previous books in the series are sprinkled throughout adding charm to this hate at first sight tale. 

 

All or Nothing at All by Jennifer Probst
HGTV’s Property Brothers combined with the charm of small town living describes this sexy new romance from Jennifer Probst perfectly.
