Meet the world's hardest working architect, Henriette Mouse, as she designs and builds homes for all of her animal neighbors.
The great Steven Wright has taken the situation of a 7-year-old boy daydreaming in class and written a beautiful novel out of it, using his signature absurd humor to explore topics like the nature of reality, birds, friendship, Carl Sagan and more. Those familiar with the comedian will be happy to find plenty of his strange philosophical insight, yet this book will also appeal to fans of authors like Saramago, Calvino or Kundera.
Greg Marshall is super smart, and super funny, and some super shitty things have happened to him. So get ready for some truly hilarious grief.
Fresh and original, I really, really recommend this funny, insightful, uplifting memoir. You'll laugh and cry, and maybe even blush a little.
Hands down, my favorite book of the year. And definitely my new favorite author.
Damani is one of the most memorable main characters I've ever had the pleasure of reading! Fast paced, funny, sharp and full of deadly lines that sink into you. For sure one of the best books I've read so far this year.
Abbi Waxman has done it again! Alongside some of your favorite Bookish Life of Nina Hill characters, Laura & the other residents of Maggie's house will surely encourage all of us "adults" to cut ourselves a break, take a leap of faith, and find (or finally recognize) the people that feel like home.
The enchanting illustrations and increasingly amusing tale made this book an instant favorite. Mina is usually fine with her father's eccentric finds, like the stick bugs with their charismatic voices, but she's a little skeptical of the new squirrel he brings home, especially when the squirrel refuses to eat - not even acorns!
As anyone fortunate enough to live with a cat will tell you, cats generally don't do anything they don't want to do. This hilarious, rhyming read-aloud shows you exactly how far a cat will go to avoid being bathed.
This book made me so happy. Not just because it has an adorable You've Got Mail set up (with 2 competing Halal restaurants and via a podcast instead of email) but also for the depth and many layers this story has about family, community, and the power of telling your own story. And yes, this book IS calling your name.
This gender-bent Beauty and the Beast retelling with Ella Enchanted (the movie) vibes was an absolute treat. It genuinely made me laugh out loud with all its smart quips and the adorable romance made me swoon, repeatedly. The two main characters have chemistry that leaps off the page and there's a lovable diverse friend group that you won't want to part with. Get ready for balls, masquerades, and posh garden parties as well as enchanted forests, silly princes, and a support group for those who've been cursed. Also Tevin is a total dreamboat and I love him. That is all.
