I have had the pleasure of reading 3 Lauren Beukes books: The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes Moxyland by Lauren Beukes

My favorite has probably been The Shining Girls. Anyone else?

I've read Zoo City and The Shining Girls. I enjoyed The Shining Girls, but loved Zoo City.

Probably because she uses Joburg inner city as a setting for Zoo City and I work there. I recognise so many of her descriptions in the book.

Here's a link to a Q&A she did in another group:

I read the articles that she referenced in her comments and they made it even more interesting for me.
