Miranda Brooks inherits a failing bookshop - and convoluted scavenger hunt - from an uncle she hasn't seen or communicated with in sixteen years. This mysterious inheritance sets her off on a journey of self-discovery and literary adventure. This sweet and loving novel is packed with all the bookish clues and references a reader could want - a great summer read. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person

This is the Jewish feminist fairy tale that I didn't know I needed. A beautifully lyrical re-interpretation of Rumplestiltskin, this novel is told in multiple voices as characters in a mythical eastern European land fight against the strictures that control their lives and take away their choices. Complex, beautifully written, and completely absorbing, this is a book I will return to over and over. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person

The dialog in this book sparkles, from a meet-cute in an elevator through the inevitable ups and downs of a fake romance that's starting to become real. If you're looking for a fun escapist read, this one is for you. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person

It's easy for grad student Naledi to ignore and delete an endless chain of spam claiming she's engaged to an African prince. But when a new man shows up in her life, everything may not be what it seems. This book is pure flirty fun. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person

This awesome combination of a graphic memoir and a cookbook has super easy to follow and delicious recipes for authentic Korean food. The art throughout makes the recipes completely un-intimidating, and the author's story, shared in short comic vignettes throughout the book, is compelling and moving. This is a great addition to your cookbook shelf! ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person
