What We’re Reading 12/18

Christmas is only one week away, folks! Having trouble thinking of the perfect gift? Take a look at these current reads from our staff for some inspiration.

This Is Not a Love Song Cover Image

This Is Not a Love Song by Brendan Mathews

This Is Not a Love Song deserves a lot more praise than it has received, because it’s beautiful. Every story is some different approach to love and how it affects us, or can bring out the weirdest in us. It deals with obsession in a way that doesn’t feel judgmental, but in fact like you understand every decision that a character picks. Every story is good, and every story was my favorite, which isn’t a normal occurrence in a short story collection.




The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper Cover Image

The Five by Hallie Rubenhold

This book is an intellectually stimulating update/myth-buster about Jack the Ripper’s five canonical victims. The vivid descriptions of how these women lived is as chilling and shocking as the murders themselves.







Gideon the Ninth (The Locked Tomb Trilogy #1) Cover Image

Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

Wow! This book truly has it all — old creepy molding castles full of necromancers called together to defeat a great evil; a good old-fashioned whodunnit murder mystery; a hot jock charmer of a lead character; and much, MUCH lesbian flirtation. Much flirtation in general! Flirting everywhere, as well as death, spells, and excellent fights. After getting good and grounded in the gooey world of this book, I had stupendous fun ripping through it. 10 skulls all the way up!
