Highlights

Vox by Christina Dalcher is a timely feminist social commentary set in a dystopian world where women are banned from speaking more than their allowance of 100 words per day. "For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice..."

Ian McEwan's latest Machines Like Me gives off Black Mirror vibes with an alternative 1980s timeline story of an android named Adam, and the complicated love triangle that develops between him and his owners.

Romance
The inspiration for the recent movie, After is the tale of a good girl who falls for a bad boy and all kinds of love and drama!

Daisy Jones and the Six is a love story set in the 1970s rock-n-roll scene with a Fleetwood Mac flavour.

Another recent movie adaptation in Five Feet Apartwhen a cystic-fibrosis sufferer meets a boy who makes her want to defy the doctors orders to stay five feet apart from all other people.
