Elan Mastai has written the perfect time travel book.  Wait, scratch that.  He has written the perfect book.  What could become an overwhelmingly scientific account of time travel is instead a great book filled with laughter and crying and "oh god this is so good wait what's happening I CAN'T PUT THIS BOOK DOWN" feelings.  I read this book in 100 page increments, finding it physically painful to put down.  Definitely at the top of my list of best books I have read this year (even though it, sadly, doesn't come out until next year).  I can't wait until I can put this in customers' hands.  I guess I will just have to make do with my co-workers for now...

Rowell's take on the "Chosen One" magician story is a great one. Flipping between many unique points of view, Rowell creates some amazing dramatic irony that keeps you turning the pages. I was incredibly sad when this book ended. I wanted to spend way more time with these awesome characters in their beautifully crafted world.

Pure magic. Shakespeare, comic books, Star Trek, and the apocalypse all swirl together into one of my favorite books of the year. Mandel deftly weaves us through multiple characters in the past and present in this strangely real yet fantastically imaginative tale. And unlike many of its fellow world-ender novels, Mandel paints us a future full of hope and new beginnings.

One of the most influential novel's I've ever read. The comic book aspect drew me in, but I the depth of the characters gave it the lasting impact. We are all searching for oursevles. We all have a secret identity. We are all trying to escape something. We all want to change the world. Chabon's characters struggle along with the rest of us with the medium of comic books as their backdrop. One of the most impressive feats is Chabon's ability to verbally paint for us what his characters are painting in their own fictional world within world. They say that readers of fiction have a greater ability to empathize with the people. You can't read this book without feeling empathy. You can't help but realize how much you and these people share in your own ways. "Forget about what you are escaping from. Reserve your anxiety for what you are escaping to."

A dystopian fantasy that completely deconstructs the history of the world in an incredibly intricate way while maintaining a striking cultural critique on our ideas of masculinity, money, blood, and love. With an almost Danielewski approach towards using the novel as an artpiece, Dodson has created an immensely stark world and has proved himself as one of the most imaginative writers that I've encountered in a very long time.

This book is action packed. A page turner in which some beloved characters redeem themselves, some perish while evil characters ebb and flow in triumph and despair too. This has to be the most entertaining part of the book: the way that Jacques is able to deliver a story that is devastating, and yet in the end, hopeful. It is a strong testament to the fantasy novel, especially one made for kids of all ages. There are battles and strategy and adventure; everything needed to keep a kid entertained and looking for more to read.

Cork Dork: A Wine-Fueled Adventure Among the Obsessive Sommeliers, Big Bottle Hunters, and Rogue Scientists Who Taught Me to Live Cover Image

*Whether you are a sommelier, a boxed-wine drinker, a rose fanatic, or just wondering what the heck the buzz is about, Bianca Bosker delivers with Cork Dork!

Bianca Bosker co-founded The Huffington Post’s tech section and served as the site’s Executive Tech Editor until 2014 when she handed herself over to the life of wine.
Cork Dork is that story: all at once a hilarious memoir, an instructional guide to drinking wine, and a window into the history, science, and philosophy of living for taste.
With writing that is both informative and laugh-out-loud hilarious, Cork Dork makes wine accessible. It shows you how to be present in the experience. To savor each sip, letting it play over your senses and your memories. And for civilians like me, it makes you want to participate:

While learning the proper routine of blind-tasting, I attempted to “blind” taste the GoT red blend.
While reading about the neuroscience of smell, I tried to better appreciate my pineapple coconut smoothie.
And while sitting in a very quiet cafe, I laughed out loud at the image of corks flying and exploding bottles of red wine.

READ. THIS. BOOK.

Published: Riverhead Books - March 7th, 2017

This book left me breathless, heartbroken, and hopeful. Exit West is one of those rare titles that quietly speaks truth in the face of chaos and crisis. By bringing the refugee crisis to our own doorstep with magical realism, Hamid's narrative demands empathy for people whose struggles are otherwise filtered through political agenda. Nadia and Saeed help us to understand what it means to be forced into change despite overwhelming adversity, to be loyal to a past that is all but lost, and to finally find a new home in hope and love. Mohsin Hamid has given us a lens into the hard reality of our time while suggesting that with some humility, tenderness, and revision, we might just arrive to a new future battered but in tact and looking forward.

The One-Eyed Man is provocative and exasperating. 
Ron Currie has presented readers with a unique insight on the human condition. Is our narrator painfully honest or unreliable to a fault? After the death of his wife and a moment of enlightenment, K. has found the ability (or so we are lead to believe) to see without bias and speak without filter. Grief and pain are irrelevant. But by "liberating" himself, K. may have doomed those around him. Is it better to drown in delusion or to be ripped apart by awareness? 
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king of his own mind until the blind revolt.
Incredibly well done.

Pardon the temporal drag, but I believe that's future me declaring this my favorite book of 2017.
I am so grateful for the few months I have to digest this novel so I can present it to customers without dissolving into squeals and feels (Because if you review the audio of me reading the last 50 pages of this book, I very loudly experience the full range of human emotion)! 


Where this book is science fiction, it is smart and quirky, as fresh as a lemon tart and just as delicious. When it starts getting too complicated, our narrator reminds us that he doesn't really get it either.
But WAIT, this book is more than time travel. It is the consequences of our actions, the hope for a better tomorrow, the strength to be our best selves, the guilt we endure, and the love we live for. 
Plus it's REALLY fun, and is going to make an amazing film some day. 5 stars, plus a little gold star sticker on the side.

Ocean at the End of the Lane was the most gripping novel on my 2015 list, occupying my time on two flights to and from Orange County. Complicated and heart-wrenching, it had me squirming in my seat. I found myself horrified and in awe of this young boy whose innocence allows him to recognize a danger that no "grown-up" can while leaving him feeling incapable of confronting its authority. Sitting on that plane, I felt both enlightened and powerless.

This book knows what it means to be a child.

Helen Oyeyemi is a masterful writerpoetic, witty, and captivating. Each of the short stories in this collection is tentatively connected by their characters and by themes of locks, keys, doors and books, yet each also seems to create its own secret world. In each new world, I was immediately entranced by its mystery and, inevitably, its poignant tragedy.

Beautiful, heartbreaking, a must-read. Told through the perspective of a child forced to navigate a dangerous and confusing world, this story is about discovering truth in a world that lies in many languages. In the way that children learn a first language, some things are understood without needing to be expalined. This is how we discover some things to be magical, no matter the explanation behind them. This is how we learn that love is dangerous—and our only hope for survival.

Uprooted is an unapologetic fairy tale brimming with enchantments, sorcery, and foreboding evil forces; reading it reminded me of why I fell in love with magic. Like my teenage self, Agnieszka is inexperienced, completely naive, and a total klutz, yet she kicks some wizarding butt as she learns to trust herself and outsmarts some really pompous bullies. This book has a bit of everything a good fantasy should: undying frienships, gory swordfights, and sparks-flying romance—yes, things get a little steamy—so read it and let's talk about it! But seriously, it's good.

I don't think I can accurately describe how powerful this book was to me. The women who live in these pages are fictional characters, but they are oh so real. Mothers, daughters, aunts, sisters, young women, old women, soon to be dying women, these stories tell it all through the eyes of women who have born their burdens, braved their struggles, and come out alive, if barely. Tough women, strong women—not strong because they have control over their world, rather as life deals them inevitable abuse and violation, these women show their resilience by baring their scars.

It is a story of great love and great loss, great faith and great failings. I haven't stopped thinking about it.

With eerie and visceral prose, Ottessa Moshfegh latches onto the fundamental human experience of realizing that you are a dark, fragile, and volatile creature deep inside. Most of us experience this realization in solitude, when we stare nakedly into a mirror and examine our deepest fears, embarrassments, and imperfections. Eileen dwells in this awareness. This might seem an un-endearing quality for a first-person narrative, but as Eileen seeks human connection, she reveals to us an honest, and not hopeless, glimpse of our race in all its desperate wanting.

I love Russian novels -- give me Tolstoy or Dostoevsky and I'll be entertained for days. It's hard to adapt/capture the feelings evoked by these classic Russian novels in the 21st centure, let alone by the hand of an American author.  Towles came damn close, through this tale of a count sentenced to life in the Metropol Hotel, which is across from the Kremlin in Moscow.  Recounting days spent and lives lived in this swanky hotel, this book offers a great escape.

About Love, Africa:

A seasoned war correspondent, Jeffrey Gettleman has covered every major conflict over the past twenty years, from Afghanistan to Iraq to the Congo. For the past decade, he has served as the East Africa bureau chief for the New York Times, fulfilling a teenage dream. At nineteen, Gettleman fell in love, twice. On a do-it-yourself community service trip in college, he went to East Africa--a terrifying, exciting, dreamlike part of the world in the throes of change that imprinted itself on his imagination and on his heart. But around that same time he also fell in love with a fellow Cornell student--the brightest, classiest, most principled woman he'd ever met. To say they were opposites was an understatement. She became a criminal lawyer in America; he hungered to return to Africa. For the next decade he would be torn between these two abiding passions. A sensually rendered coming-of-age story in the tradition of Barbarian DaysLove, Africa is a tale of passion, violence, far-flung adventure, tortuous long-distance relationships, screwing up, forgiveness, parenthood, and happiness that explores the power of finding yourself in the most unexpected of places.

Garbage, "This Is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake"

Join us at The Book Cellar as Garbage takes some time away from their tour with Blondie to sign copies of their new autobiography, "This Is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake".

About Garbage:

GARBAGE (Shirley Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker, and Butch Vig) formed in Wisconsin in 1994. Their debut album, Garbage, sold over four million copies, and their second album, Version 2.0, netted the group three Grammy award nominations. They’ve since recorded five more multimillion-copy best-selling albums, as well as the theme song to the James Bond movie The World Is Not Enough. In 2015 they celebrated the twentieth anniversary of their debut record with a worldwide tour. Garbage’s sixth album, Strange Little Birds, was released in 2016 to critical acclaim and followed by an extensive tour.

About This Is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake:

World famous for their eclectic, original styles, Garbage have enjoyed critical and commercial success for more than twenty years. Now, for the first time, the four band members tell the story of their incredible journey in their own words. This full-color book examines how Garbage makes their music, the tolls this takes, and how they have survived for this long.
