The Shadow and the Ghost by Cat Min book over

The Shadow and the Ghost by Cat Min

Releases April 2, 2024

Anything illustrated by Cat Min and I'm sold. Instantly on the bookshelf. And just when I thought it couldn't get better, I learn that its a story of friendship between a shadow and a ghost. Perfection. - Jacey

 

Unhappy Camper by Lily LaMotte, Ann Xu, and Sunmi

Unhappy Camper by Lily LaMotte, Ann Xu, and Sunmi

Releases April 9, 2024

After reading "Measuring Up", I was very excited about "Unhappy Camper" and I was not disappointed. A graphic novel story of 2 sisters trying to walk the fence between being "American" and still embracing Taiwanese culture. It is a summer camp story, it is the story of finding out who you are and where you belong. - Rebecca G. 

 

Ocean's Godori by Elaine A. Cho book cover

Ocean's Godori by Elaine A. Cho

Releases April 23, 2024

As an avid watcher of K-dramas and lover of all things Korean, I loved this book! Ocean's character was complex, strong, and just what you want in your heroine. Of course, you can't have the perfect female lead without the male lead, and Haven fulfills this role beautifully. I loved the intricacies of different cultures mixing together and the close camaraderie between shipmates in space. I hope there's a follow-up! - Kalli

 

The Age of Magical Overthinking by Amanda Montell book cover

The Age of Magical Overthinking by Amanda Montell

Releases April 9, 2023

This book feels more like a well-researched memoir than a book about the science of cognitive biases. Montell's own experience with the phenomena she writes about--from confirmation bias to sunk cost fallacy--brings the book to life in a way that feels more genuine than if the facts were written in a cut-and-dry way. Montell is a writer for the new generation--humorous, intelligent, and enlightening, this book is great for people grappling with the way their mind works in the modern age. - Chloe

 

The Paris Novel by Ruth Reichl book cover

The Paris Novel by Ruth Reichl

Releases April 23, 2024

Food writing crashes into a novel topped off with far too many references to scrumptious food and in France. Sounds like the perfect combination for a foodie and it is. The story of Stella's journey of self-discovery after the death of her estranged mother is joyous and full of taste and texture. As Stella wakes up to a world of wonder, so do we as readers get to do the same. A joyous and delicious journey. - Rebecca G. 

 

Order ahead and have something to look forward to next month. 

Happy Reading!
