Crazy Rich Asians
by Kevin Kwang
A favorite series because it’s so fun, humorous, and entertaining!

Rogues: True Stories of Grifters, Killers, Rebels, and Crooks
by Patrick Radden Keefe
A dozen of Keefe’s celebrated articles from The New Yorker examining people behaving badly. Each story pulls the reader into a world of forgery, organized crime, or insider trading with the crystal-clear writing that made Empire of Pain a 2021 favorite.

Randall's Pick

Exhalation
by Ted Chiang
A visionary collection from one of the great writers of speculative short fiction, Exhalation brings together a few classics as well as stories published here for the first time.

Sandy's Pick

The Handmaid's Tale
by Margaret Atwood
This feminist dystopian novel has long been on my list of favorites.  Atwood's most well known work depicts a very near future where half of the population's rights have been stripped, and what that means for humanity as a whole.

Vanessa's Pick

Jane Eyre
by Charlotte Brontë
My all-time favorite book is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read it now. Jane is such a strong and opinionated woman who stands her ground, stands by her morals, and refuses to back down. Even when she is faced with class discrimination, haunted manors, leaving the love of her life behind, and braving the elements for days while wandering the moors. A fine exclusive edition of one of literature's most beloved stories. Our copy features a laser-cut jacket on a textured book with foil stamping!
