This is the rare book where the mundane details of life put you on the edge of your seat. Equal parts thrilling and thoughtful, Scorah's memoir is the first time I've seen my own experience living overseas reflected pitch-perfectly on the page. A timely reminder that sometimes it's easier to find ourselves in words than it is in the culture around us.

The inside of this book is as beautiful as the outside! I quickly found myself drawn head over heels into the rich world of Margaret Owen's debut; it's so lived-in that it's hard not to be! There's not much better than finding such a fresh, magical fantasy to sink your teeth into.

This series is my FAVORITE thing to come out of the last decade. For everyone who's anticipating the resurrection of the Dune franchise this is "so what if exciting stuff constantly happened in Dune". But better. Just read it. If you like sci-fi even a little bit you will love it.

Perfect for fans of Rick Riordan, the Shadow Magic series is a perfect fantasy read: it has a treacherous new world, zombies, elemental powers, giant bats, and a girl who can talk to ghosts. What more could you want?

D&D meets Jumanji in the biggest comic of 2019. As with all of Kieron Gillen's books, the characters and their humanity are what drives this, even amongst such a high-concept premise. And Stephanie Hans' artwork will take your breath away. This one is a game changer.

Vamos! Let's Go To The Market checks all my boxes for what makes a perfect picture book. The artwork is beautiful and fun, there's so much to discover within every page (perfect for repeat readings!) and the conversational mix of English and Spanish makes for a wonderful learning experience. I wish I had had this book as a kid!

The dreadful game of Yates' Black Chalk is fairly straightforward - a series of escalating dares with escalating consequences - but the narrative is not. Constantly flitting between past and present, this story kept me perpetually off balance, and I couldn't put it down. I dare you not to get caught up in this twisting tale.

I love cooking, but I HATE shopping for food, so this cookbook has saved/changed my life. This has become an important part of Wednesday Night Dinner at my house: cook time under half an hour, cost under $20, and several meals worth of food that tastes as fancy as eating out! Try the Flaky Pastry Chicken Pesto (pg 114)!
