Tyler RECOMMENDS:

In VAMPENGUIN, author Lucy Ruth Cummins takes us on a trip to the zoo with the Dracula family. While visiting an exhibit, their youngest child discreetly swaps places with one of the penguins without their parents knowing. The story takes off from there, both baby Dracula and penguin living a day in each other's lives. Cummins has a gift for the humorous and slightly absurd. A great book for any child who always seems up to something...We have signed copies!

ishita RECOMMENDS:

Mulan meets THE SONG OF ACHILLES in this debut historical fantasy by Shelley Parker-Chan. SHE WHO BECAME THE SUN is an incredible narrative about choosing your own destiny, fighting against societal expectations, and being unapologetic about who you are. Heroine Zhu is clever and capable, and makes you root for her so easily. The bold immersive world Chan creates makes you forget that this is a debut! Plus? It's SUPER queer. What's not to like?

lori RECOMMENDS:

Kristen Radtke’s new and magnificent hybrid work is at once an illustrated memoir and a fascinating study on the under-appreciated effects of loneliness on the human body and mind. Moreover, it is a work of breathtaking empathy for the human condition. Perhaps in no other time in modern history has it been more important for us to understand our individual and collective loneliness and how we can rebuild the human connections that sustain us. Radtke’s writing is heartfelt and questioning, and her drawings bring a wonderful vitality and resonance to the text. SEEK YOU is the book that we need now—a relevant and poignant tribute to the “skin hunger” innate in all of us.

nancy RECOMMENDS:

KLARA AND THE SUN is one of my favorite books I have read this year. Set at some vague time in the not so distant future, Klara is the Artificial Intelligence friend of a young woman named Josie. The complex and beautiful friendship that develops could only be crafted by a master storyteller such as Kazuo Ishiguro. (winner of the Pulitzer Prize) Although the story line sounds unusual, I recommend you try this for its unexpected and sensitive beauty. And then please come see me in the store so we can discuss it.

Tom RECOMMENDS:

A time traveling literary romance that is well worth your while. Beautifully written, epicly composed, this is a delicious feast of words, and one of my favorite books to come from 2019. Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone wrote a phenomenal book that I will read and reread. A little bit of sci-fi, a little bit of history, with a generous helping of sass and brilliant character driven storyline, this book is slated to be a modern classic for Science Fiction readers.

This is Kate Elizabeth Russell's debut novel. This story of a love affair, or what at least one of the people involved might describe as that, is complex and compelling -- one of this season's big buzzy novels that proves worthy of all that hype and attention. Its mix of desire, dread, suspense, and surrender will give you chills of every kind. I'm still on my way to the finish. How on earth is Russell going to resolve this?
