The Magic FishMore Staff Picks +
“Real life isn’t a fairytale.” This is one of my favorite graphic novels I’ve read this year! It weaves different versions of familiar fairytales into the lives of a young boy and his mother as they tell their own stories, learning what it means to be a family with love and acceptance. Beautifully illustrated, The Magic Fish tackles complex emotions and tough subjects to show how stories bring us together.
The BearMore Staff Picks +
Trying to get out of my pandemic book-reading slump, I picked up this new paperback by Andrew Krivak. It tells the story of a man and his daughter who are the last of human civilization. A fantasy of the power of nature and our connectedness to it, I am now out of my rut! Finish it in a day.
Paper HeartsMore Staff Picks +
A charming story about love in unexpected places and life's tough choices. I thoroughly enjoyed the well-rounded characters and the believable story line. Perfect for Valentine's day lovers and skeptics alike!
City of GhostsMore Staff Picks +
This fast-paced story perfectly balances mystery, adventure, and horror. Highly recommended for fans of the paranormal.
These Violent DelightsMore Staff Picks +
Nemerever's debut novel, comparable to The Secret History and Call Me by Your Name, is about the relationship of two college students in the early 1970s. Each with their own pasts, the story escalates into a Leopold and Loeb-like style thrill killing. This book has beautifully written prose, and while it did take a bit to get into the plot, you will either hate to love this book, or love to hate it.
Flora & Ulysses: the Illuminated AdventuresMore Staff Picks +
DiCamillo it true to her trademark here, offering a cast of loveable, quirky characters and lots of laugh-out-loud moments. This title is a great family read-aloud selection as there is something here for all ages to enjoy, from a super-hero squirrel to a young girl learning to accept the changes in her world.
Love LetteringMore Staff Picks +
I'm not versed in Font styles, so this story started off on a slow, confusing note. Once I got a bit into the plot where Meg crosses paths with Reid again, and the sparks start to fly, I was caught. Falling in love in New York City offers lots of inspiration via the art of LETTERING. Who knew?
New Uses for Old BoyfriendsMore Staff Picks +
Lila, divorced and flat broke, goes home to live with mom, only to learn that mom, recently widowed, is also in financial crisis. Combining their business skills (or lack of them) with their fashion knowledge and collection, a vintage clothing store may be the answer, with the help of some "old boyfriends."
Light in Hidden PlacesMore Staff Picks +
WWII Poland -- I've read many WWII Historical Fiction, but this one had me holding my breath and/or cringing with the descriptions of the atrocities done to the Jewish community by the German Nazis. It took courage and love to be able to try to hide, feed and protect Jews in her home under the nose of the Germans, and Stefania Podgórska did it! This book is based on her true story.
SabrielMore Staff Picks +
Garth Nix creates an engrossing story of a young woman and her journey to find her missing father, the Abhorsen. Along the way she befriends a talking cat and uses powers of necromancy and magic to battle the Dead of the Old Kingdom, a place that no longer belongs to the living.
