Hannah's Horror Bundle

Having trouble getting into spirit this unusual Halloween? Hannah will hand pick you three spine-chilling paperback novels that will make you double check your locks and hide beneath the covers. Let’s embark on a journey of short story compilations, female horror writers, horror poetry, Halloween books for youth, and classic horror together. Now light that pumpkin spice candle and let’s take a ride to Halloween Town.


Kate Sends You 3 Paperbacks

Type a word or phrase in the order comments and Kate will pick out three paperbacks for you. Kate reads widely, but you may especially like her picks if you enjoy slightly-off-kilter fiction, works in translation, poetry, and little books about big landscapes.



Stacey's Middle Grade Bundle

Looking for something quirky or heartwarming? Cute? Kinda creepy? Esoteric or irreverent? Throw a dice and see what Stacey finds on the shelves for you! A random selection of 3 MG paperbacks. If giving as a gift, please provide the recipient's age and interests.

Caleb: Something Twisted This Way Comes

Caleb's cold-blooded book club, now online! Be prepared for dark head games, precocious plot-hatchers, and unreliable narrators. Caleb will handpick THREE different page-turners for you, scratching that delicious itch for antiheroes and adrenaline.



Meaghan: Diversify Your Bookshelf

Bookshelves looking a little male or pale? Meaghan's here to help! She will handpick 3 fiction titles by either POC authors or (diverse) female-identifying authors to add some color to your reading. (Put your preference in order comments!)



Shana's Queer SFF Bundle

If you liked Narnia but prefer to be out of the closet, if you're still mad that Poe and Finn never kissed, if you've recognized the biggest fantasy of all is that gender could be a binary, this is the bundle for you! Shana will use their extensive knowledge of science fiction and fantasy and select three books where queer people get to go on fantastical adventures. If there are any specific shades of queer you'd like to see or any other details, say something in the notes!
