Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland illus. by Camille Rose Garcia
A stunning edition of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. You will feel wonderfully mad as you navigate through Camille Rose Garcia’s trippy & creepy illustrations.
The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson
Have you wondered if you or your boss/co-worker/friend/mother-in-law is a psychopath? This is the book for you. Jon Ronson explores the concept of psychopathy through discussions with mental health specialists, descriptions of odd and unsettling treatments, and the lens of mass media. Ultimately, an engaging look at how psychopathy is viewed and treated in our world.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
There is a reason everyone is reading this. For those of you with voyeuristic tendencies (I know you’re out there), read this book. Three perspectives – three versions of the truth. The perfect thriller.
The Devil and Sherlock Holmes by David Grann
A motley collection of heroes and rogues from around the world. Strange non-fiction, the best kind perhaps? Tumble along these tales and leave wanting more.
Jillian by Halle Butler
Two secretaries, Megan & Jillian, a malcontent and a short-sighted optimist. They will test your patience, yet you can’t help but feel for them. Somehow humorous, somehow distasteful, completely great. If you like staring at car crashes, this is your book. (Meet the author and get a signed copy : March 4th, 630-900)
The Year of No Mistakes by Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz
After all of these maddening reads, cleanse your palate. Poetry has a beautiful way to return you to yourself, and Aptowicz deftly and simply presents moments of personal struggle, joy, and insight. This isn’t sugar sweet, but life isn’t either.
