Kristen Arnett’s With Teeth and Lisa Taddeo’s Animal are both included on a number of must-read lists for summer 2021, thanks to the authors’ prior books stirring much conversation (and many sales).

And with both hitting shelves earlier this month, excerpts are available online for you to assess whether they’re worth exploring in full.

With Teeth, which came out June 1, follows a mother’s attempts to bond with her rather scary son, with things coming to a head when the surly boy turns violent.

You can read an excerpt of With Teeth in Literary Hub.

Animal, which came out June 8, is the story of Joan, a woman well-versed in male violence who reaches a breaking point and decides to process her trauma — and fight back.

You can read an excerpt of Animal in the New York Times.
