Veronica Mars: An Original Mystery by Rob Thomas: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line (Vintage) by Rob Thomas
Veronica Mars: An Original Mystery by Rob Thomas: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line (Vintage)

Christin, April 3, 2014

I just got this book and I blasted through it. So fun! So Veronica! I really enjoyed the mystery. It was complicated enough to keep me guessing, but not so complicated things got messy or confusing. I also enjoyed the kind of quiet background thread of Veronica trying to settle into her new life and trying to sort of renegotiate her relationship with her father as an adult and work partner. I cannot wait for the next book in the series!

Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened by Allie Brosh
Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened

Christin, November 1, 2013

Brilliant! The Hyperbole and a Half is one of the shiniest gems of the internet and this book is every bit the treasure the blog is. There are a few old favorites from the blog reprinted here, but most of the book is new content. It's got zany childhood adventures, journeys of self-discovery, and dog stories. Oh yes, lots of dog stories! Allie's art may seem deceptively simple at first, but it actually has so much nuance and single frames can send you into gales of laughter all on their own, even independent of the story as a whole.

Such a hilarious book!

The Shining Girls (Large Print) by Lauren Beukes
The Shining Girls (Large Print)

Christin, October 16, 2013

This book is so disturbing! In a good way, though. It's tense, trippy and emotional. Beukes is an excellent writer who deftly weaves together strands of a story that could easily have been a muddled mess in the hands of a less skilled author.

Hounds of the Morrigan by Pat Oshea
Hounds of the Morrigan

Christin, April 8, 2013

What an adorable book! It grabs you from the first page and is a surprisingly fast read. This is a sweet, fun story about a brave, clever young boy and his spitfire little sister going on a quest through Faerie to retrieve a special stone that will allow them to prevent The Morrigan from unleashing misery on the world. A great mythological romp!

Andromeda Klein by Frank Portman
Andromeda Klein

Christin, March 25, 2013

This is such a delightful book! Andromeda Klein is just your average high schooler obsessed with the tarot and ceremonial magic, when suddenly she begins having dreams and visions involving imagery from the tarot and a figure calling itself the King of Sacremento. Worse, her dead best friend is suddenly not quite as dead as she should be. This book is weird and quirky without even trying to be, which makes it absolutely charming. A fun, unique read!
