If you love the movie and you haven't read the book, buy it. If you haven't seen the movie, buy the book, read it and then see the movie. If you have read the book and love the movie, then buy it and give it to someone else who has not yet been initiated. If you've never heard of The Princess Bride . . . well, that's just inconceivable.

Like being at a good British friend's home - one who tells fascinating, sometimes spooky stories. In between there's talk of her recipes and family. It's not always specifically about Christmas, but you feel you are making your way through the season fortified by her rich tales and food.

The novel unfurls into a twisting mass of parallel lives and fated occurrences. Just when the reader believes they are finally on the path of truth, Murakami masterfully unearths new connections and twists, keeping you on your toes. As with the characters, the reader finds themselves falling into a new world and back again, making each person reconsider the reality around them.

This is completely worth the $40 merely for the recipe for Roasted Pork Belly with Crushed Butternut Squash and Walnut Salsa alone. (P192). Not food you'd whip up on a school night - but the flavor combinations are SO clever, SO interesting and totally doable, this just might be the last cookbook you need.

As a bookseller, I read a lot of books. I’ve read a whole heap of staff-pick-able ones in the past few months. But this little aliebn has stayed with me since July; I've read and re-read it and found something new every time. Funny, poignant, and earnest, this book about a lonely alien his animal friends offers plenty of insight on what it means to be human.

The mermaids in this book are sea creatures from the depths of the Mariana Trench, and they do not want to be a part of your world. They just want to eat the ship full of scientists that have come to their territory seeking answers. Mira Grant masterfully brings to life (and, in many cases, death) a diverse cast of scientists and mermaids in this extremely well-researched, science fiction/horror take on mermaids. Read if you want to be terrified of the sea forever.

Truly brilliant and beautiful work on the nature of translation and how powerful the ability to reach across languages can be. One of those rare books you wish you’d read years earlier. Highly recommended to writers (it changed how I think about American English), readers of works in translation, and readers in general looking to extend their horizons.
