Never before have a read a love story so immersive, so immediate, so completely overwhelming. I kept thinking how I couldn’t really believe it was a young adult book – I kept envisioning it sitting on a display on par with The Nightingale. I thought I knew a great deal about both World Wars as I’ve been fascinated by them for most of my life, but not only did I enjoy the plot, I learned a great deal about the front in France and how all the different groups of people who came there for many reasons from all over the world interacted with each other.

Sarah on The Lovely War

Tuesday, October 22nd at 7pm: PEGGY PANOSH & SUSIE ARONS

Humor authors and illustrator of Billions of Besties, recommended by Sarah

We could all use some positivity these days and what better way to share it than by celebrating awesome friendships! The ones included range from the well known (Gayle and Oprah) to more ideological (Lizzo and The Truth). It’s a great collection and will be an adorable gift book for your BFF this holiday season!


Wednesday, October 28th at 7pm: Spooky Towne with DANIEL KRAUS

Middle grade author of They Threw Us Away

Thursday, October 29th at 7pm: WILLIAM LASHNER

Thriller and middle grade author of the Elizabeth Wesbter series, recommended by Marielle

Thirteen-year-old Elizabeth Webster fights ghosts and demons in the weirdest court of law ever in this zany middle-grade adventure. From the first line you’ll feel pulled into a noir film, with sarcastic and awkward Elizabet as your hard-boiled but loveable narrator. Part mystery, part courtroom drama, part ghost story, this is the perfect book or anyone who’s ever felt like the odd one out and/or enjoys a ghostly court case.
