Boneshaker
Boneshaker
by Cherie Priest
Staff Pick
It's no secret that I am a fan of steampunk. For years, I have harbored a quiet love of dirigibles and goggles. So it's no surprise that it was love at first sight when I spied the cover of Boneshaker. What I found inside didn't disappoint: a zombie... (read more)

Fool
Fool
by Christopher Moore
Staff Pick
I giggled a lot while reading Fool, Moore's take on King Lear. It's bawdy, silly, and smart. A perfect read for book nerds with a sense of humor.... (read more)

Broken Homes (Rivers of London Series)
Broken Homes (Rivers of London Series)
by Ben Aaronovitch
Staff Pick
The publication date for the fourth book in the Peter Grant series was pushed back for American readers, but it was worth the wait. Intense and funny, Broken Homes explores fantasy in a wonderful, unique way. I also love that Peter Grant has an African... (read more)

A Personal Matter
A Personal Matter
by Kenzaburo Oe
Staff Pick
If you like your books to be a punch in the face, then consider A Personal Matter a good nose bleed of a novel. This is a depiction of human frailty, alienation, despair, and ultimate triumph. Coming to grips with the narrator proved to be quite a... (read more)

Persepolis 2 : Story of a Return (04 Edition)
Persepolis 2 : Story of a Return (04 Edition)
by Marjane Satrapi
Staff Pick
I must admit I read this, the second installment of Satrapi's illustrated autobiography, before reading the first. Without the full premise of how she left her native country of Iran for Europe, it was easy to think that I had found a interesting... (read more)

Holy Skirts: A Novel of a Flamboyant Woman Who Risked All for Art (P.S.)
by Rene Steinke
Staff Pick
My coworker Adrienne recommended this book to me, and I just gobbled it up whole. It's based on the life of the Baroness Elsa, a mess of a woman who did everything unthinkable, including unabashedly eating the heart out of the American art world. She's... (read more)

Tsuro: Veterans of the Sea Expansion
Tsuro: Veterans of the Sea Expansion
by Calliope Games
Staff Pick
I love the original Tsuro, but Tsuro of the Seas takes pathfinding to the next level. It's a quick game because players are killed by sea monsters, you know, a lot. The expansion adds cannons to fight the monsters and a "mystic portal," but also tsunamis... (read more)
