The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

In this prequel to the beloved Practical Magic, we meet the three Owens siblings: practical Franny, beautiful and intuitive Jet, and Vincent, whose charm leads to just as much trouble as it does good fortune. For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man. Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the sixties, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique

We recommend this book because this story is full of lovable characters who will tug at your heartstrings and twists that will keep you turning the pages quickly.

The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis

The Screwtape Letters has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life. C. S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of "Our Father Below," the worldly-wise old devil, to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man who has just become a Christian.

We recommend this book because it is brilliant and imaginative. No matter what you believe in, you'll still enjoy C.S. Lewis' masterpiece. It is entertaining and mind-opening.

The Chaos of Standing Still by Jessica Brody

When Ryn finds herself trapped in the Denver International Airport on New Year’s Eve thanks to a never-ending blizzard on the anniversary of her best friend’s death, fate literally runs into her. And his name is Xander. In a chaotic string of events, the two embark on an unforgettable all-night adventure, filled with charming and mysterious strangers, a secret New Year’s Eve bash, and a possible Illuminati conspiracy hidden within the airport.

We recommend this book because it is a heart-warming story about the earth-shattering challenges life throws at us, and how strangers can help us along the way.

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon--both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle--are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.

We recommend this book because it is hilarious. You probably already saw the Amazon Prime series or just heard of it. Reading the book is much better and you will enjoy reading this book so much you won't stop smiling.

How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America by Kiese Laymon

This new edition of Laymon’s essay collection, including six new essays, looks at how his life and his relationship with publishing shaped his experience as a writer.

We recommend this book if you enjoy reading nonfiction. This collection of essays is brilliant, piercing, and funny.
