Vessel: A Novel | Lisa A. Nichols

Pickpick

If you‘re not a fan of hardcore sci-fi but like some of the elements of it, then this book will read well for you. I loved the literary feel to it without it being super science heavy. Much more about interpersonal relationships and and internal dialogue. I loved it.

Powerful and extremely thought provoking, while being warm, entertaining, and very family focused. This is an excellent example of the difference and power that a YA novel can make today.

When you literally are like “dystopian fiction” or “real life”? My co-manager and I were feeling inspired today.

True crime at its best. A mystery that still exists to this day, a small town with history, secrets, villains and heroes. Then you add in the facet of Harper Lee and you have the must read non-fiction of 2019.

The Raven's Tale | Cat Winters
post image
Pickpick

Poe is hands down my favorite author, so any re imagining of his life is a complete draw for me. As someone who has spent a lot of time in Richmond, VA, the atmosphere portrayed in this book is spot on. From the locations to the people, it is well researched. This was such an original idea and is a creative take on Poe's inspirations and psyche.

Look, I know EL James brings strong opinions from people, but honestly this was a decent romance novel. Her writing is much better now, and it‘s just kind of a good way to kill an afternoon. I liked it.

Being from Pittsburgh, Mister Rogers truly holds a place in my heart for all time. Could not resist picking this up.

rretzler I‘ll never forget my visit to the set when I was 4-5 - I think it may have been before the show went national. Didn‘t get to meet Mr Rogers, but I did get to meet Mr McFeely and Betty Aberlin, plus Trolley and all the puppets. Being from Pittsburgh, do you also remember Paul Shannon‘s Adventure Time? 3mo
