The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Good old Hitchhiker's... this is a book that has been recommended to me by just about everyone I know. It definitely takes some getting used to if you are not used to humorous sci-fi, but it is definitely a favorite!  Synopsis Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for his galactic freeway, Arthur Dent… Continue reading The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Prachett

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

I had wanted to read Station Eleven for quite a while, since I first saw it sitting on a table in a bookstore. I picked it up regularly in stores and contemplated purchasing it before finally doing so two years ago. And then it sat in my to-be-read pile for far too long. So when I decided… Continue reading Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Traveler by L. E. DeLano

Back in January, a publicist contacted the bookstore I work at and asked if we wanted to do an event with a recently published YA author, L. E. DeLano, who lived close to the store. Rarely do we turn down an author event with a major publisher, so without a lot of information, we said… Continue reading Traveler by L. E. DeLano
