A slow burning romance with a whirlwind last quarter of the book!
This is one of those books you savor the writing and don't rush through. Seeing Aristotle and Dante grow and change is quite lovely!
Another winner from Blake Crouch! Gene-editing, suspense, post-apocalyptic ... what more can you ask for?
I listened to the audiobook of this and loved the narrator. Iona really is quite lovable and fun. You would want to sit next to her on the train every day!
I love to fish, but I'm not great at catching. So, I read about other people catching fish and their obsession. This book has led me to watching countless tarpon fishing videos on youtube.com. Help me!
I picked up this book because I saw it was partially set in Oregon, and I loved the title. It certainly didn't take long to get invested in the each character and their outcome. So many delights and sorrows for some of the characters. I certainly had my favorites, and I worried so intensely for Malik, Laila, and so many others. Beautiful writing captured the essence of the scenery and character! Imagine my surprise and love for the final chapter ... and my heartbreak!
This book comes out in 2022, and I can't wait for everyone to read it! A mystery within a mystery with so many twists that made me audibly gasp! Told from the perspective of the mistress and includes her backstory ... wow! Be sure to add this to your list!

I love this graphic novel series! Funny puns and little jokes within the drawings! This is a series you can read over and over!
One of our customers mentioned this book to me, and I'm so glad they did! A fast read that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief. It should be required reading for everyone in my opinion. The last chapter is incredible, and I loved learning about search and rescue.
Wow. Every high school kiddo should read this book. In fact, everyone should read this book, and then do something from the list in the back to get involved! An incredible book!
The recipe for Granny's Million Dollar Cake is so good! Makes a very moist and flavorful cake. Perfect for sharing with friends and family!
Everyone should read this book! It's not just a book for older people. Young people need to prep and be ready for a unexpected situation. How do you want to live your life? What matters the most as you age? This book invites readers to consider all kinds of possibilities. I bought this book for my parents and both of my brothers ... looking forward to the conversations after they read it.

A perfect read for fishers, non-fishers, or natural history buffs! Set partly on the Deschutes River near the Warm Springs Reservation. As a fisher, I really enjoyed this book from the opening sentence. Makes me want to fish all summer long and soak in the surrounding nature.

Nerd out on this book about breathing and drive your partner crazy with the facts. Oh, that's just me! I thought this book was super interesting! It's one of those books you read a paragraph and then tell the person next to you what you just read.
Well, now I know what dopesick is and why you want to avoid having it. Such a terrible and terrifying account of drugs and the effects of them in communities and families. A good book!
I love Molly Gilbert's other book "One Pan & Done," so this was the book for me to preorder as soon as I saw it coming out! She doesn't disappoint!
