What We’re Reading This Week

Jan’s facial expression denotes irrational affection for Heap House.


Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer

“Awesome, crazy. I’m twenty pages in and I’m blown away. It’s as good as everyone says it is.”




Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation by Bill Nye

“Fantastic book. It’s an argument against creation science. The book reads as if Bill Nye is sitting across from you talking to you. Pro-science arguments for the debate on science vs. evolution.”




 Heap House: The Iremonger Trilogy, Book One by Edward Carey

“I wasn’t expecting a kids’ version of I, Claudius, which pleased me irrationally. I looked around my house for my birth object, and realized it was my Cat in the Hat Dictionary, which I’ve had since I was a baby. I may bring it to Edward Carey’s reading next week to show him. Excellent, creepy, quite Victorian. Everything perfect.”

(Edward Carey speaks and signs Heap House on Wednesday, October 29 at 7pm. You won’t want to miss this!)


Cards on the Table by Agatha Christie

“I’d forgotten how much I love Agatha Christie’s mysteries. Classic mystery tropes, like gathering all of the suspects into one room at the end–she invented those. You can’t beat a classic.”




Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

“I’m five chapters in and loving it. The obvious references are there, as are a lot of the obscure references without tie-ins to the obvious references. The obscure references make the book.”

    1. Hey creatyvebooks,
      To clear up any confusion, we are actually an independent bookstore out of Austin, TX, so you can click on the titles which will link you to our store webpage to purchase books (which we can ship to anywhere in the world). Thanks for reading the post! Our booksellers put a lot of effort into the blog and we hope you’ll support your local independent bookstore.
