Aging, mortality and giant turtles are just some of subjects that Sedaris tackles in his newest collection of essays that center on his family and their decades of putting the fun in dysfunction. I laughed, I cried and then laughed some more. Sedaris is a guilty pleasure. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner

Readers expecting a cynical parody will be pleasantly surprised: The Oatmeal's comic genius dismantles our obsession with the monochromatic word "happiness" and reveals that he is a modern Nietzsche who discovered drawing instead of syphilis. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

Rhett and Link are two of the funniest guys you've probably never heard of. They host the daily YouTube show Good Mythical Morning, the podcast Ear Biscuits, have appeared on Jimmy Fallon, and created the viral "NOPE! Chuck Testa!" local taxidermy commercial.
Amidst all the hijinx, there's also a very powerful tale of staying true to yourself, and a heartwarming story of two guys who have been attached at the hip since grade school making it against all odds.
The Book of Mythicality is a cross between a coffee table book, media companion, an activity book and a memoir. That is to say, there's something for everyone in here.
I read this book along with my 8 year old, and we were both laughing out loud the whole way through. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
