Carrie's Book List
Carrie is obsessed with dark chocolate, turtles, climbing things, books, and naming her pets after brilliant authors. She happened into a bookselling job as a teen and knew she found her people. A few life adventures later, she is happy to be back . . . for good. Yes, you have probably seen her walking downtown while reading, how else would she find enough time? She tends to have several books going at once, including working on her own (very slowly). Favorite genre's include picture books, science, poetry, short stories, and translations (esp. Japanese literature!). She also has a major soft spot for books that are hard to shelve due to defying genre.
Picture books are never just for kids. This is the perfect gift for anyone and everyone who is going through "a thing" or has helped you through your own. Plus . . . a turtle.
Best kiddo mystery series to hit the shelves since Trixie Belden. Witty, strong, and thoughtful. Great for a family read with plenty of important conversation topics!
The next book in the Before the Coffee Gets Cold Series. Every book is as good as the last and every character reaches your heart in a new way.
A thoughtful and satirical take on Franco-African History that was shortlisted for the 2023 International Booker Prize. There is a lot to learn from these three security guards as they stand heavy.
Academic Fantasy at its best. This world based on Lunar Magic is extraordinarily well thought out, the characters complex, and the plotting intricate.
I am counting down until the next in this exquisite series. There has been nothing like it.
