As Booksellers, we’re always reading. And one of our favorite things to do is talk about what we’re reading! So check out a few of the titles we’re loving right now.

Delves into the amazing way we survive and thrive based on our collective wisdom, our community of knowledge, juxtaposed with our individual ignorance, that which we assume to know. Fascinating!

As a fan of Fredrik Backman I was super excited to grab an advanced copy of his newest book (out April 25th)! Beartown centers around a small town of the same name where a youth hockey team struggles to carry the weight of the town’s expectations. When tragedy strikes, the town is left reeling.

Jeff VanderMeer is so far out of my wheelhouse but as soon as I picked up Borne I was hooked! Set in a dystopian world that is thoroughly ravaged due to the influence of the Company, Rachel is a scavenger doing her best to stay alive. When she stumbles across a living thing, swiftly changing colors and pulsating, her life will never be the same as she decides to take this thing back to her shelter. A gripping read that held me captive until the end.

Pre-order a copy! (Release date: May 9th)
Berlin Project by Gregory Benford is the best alternate worlds book I have read in a long time. The plot is what would happen if the Manhattan Project had made one different decision. Using real people and decisions as a starting point, Benford creates a completely different WWII. Exciting, fast paced, and utterly fascinating.
