What We’re Reading

Time to add to your TBR!

Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

“No one does humor quite like Pratchett. This book is Hot Fuzz meets Monty Python, and yet, it doesn’t lose any depth for its hilarity. For every joke, it offers also a profound observation about the silliness of our day-to-day existence. GNU Terry Pratchett!”

– Anthony

Happy Place by Emily Henry

“Emily Henry does it again! I can’t say enough good things about this book. Harry and Wyn’s relationship, as a couple of almost a decade, provides a refreshingly mature take on the struggles often covered in contemporary romance. Where this book really shines though is in its focus on long-term friendships and how they grow and age as the people in them do.”

– Emily S.

Stone Blind by Natalie Haynes

“Wow. Natalie Haynes does such a great job at hitting the complexities and absurdness of these tales in a new and unique way. She’s able to poke fun, yet stay true to many of the elements in the original myths without mocking. I have maybe a little more than a truly basic understanding of Greek mythology, and I’m not very familiar with the Medusa story; however, I felt able enough to follow along for the story that Haynes was telling without feeling too lost or overwhelmed. I absolutely connected with the writing and the storytelling Haynes was able to pull off. A bit feminist retelling and a bit tongue in cheek.”
