Brave New World Al­dous Hux­ley (£ 9.99, VINTAGE PUB­LISH­ING)

World Con­trollers have cre­ated the ideal so­ci­ety through ge­netic en­gi­neer­ing and brain­wash­ing – but Bernard Marx wants to break free and vis­its a Sav­age Reser­va­tion, where the old imperfect world con­tin­ues. For a book writ­ten in 1931, the sim­i­lar­i­ties to today’s world will as­ton­ish you.

The Nat­u­ral Way Of Things Char­lotte Wood (£ 8.99, ALLEN & UNWIN)

A fem­i­nist hor­ror story that bears read­ing in the wake of the We­in­stein scan­dal. Two women awake from a drugged sleep to find them­selves pris­on­ers in the desert. The thing that con­nects them and an­other eight women trapped is a sex­ual scan­dal with a pow­er­ful man.

Only Ever Yours Louise O’neill (£ 7.99, QUERCUS PUB­LISH­ING)

The Eves are trained to be thin, pretty, good – and will­ing. All their lives, the Eves have been pre­par­ing for this year, where they are ready for the out­side world. First, though, they must be cho­sen by a man. Freida and Is­abel have been count­ing down to this day but things start to go cat­a­stroph­i­cally wrong.
