Randy's Holiday Pick 2017: "With incredibly well-developed characters and an absorbing story that often reads like a thriller, Manhattan Beach is amazingly beautiful. There’s a reason Jennifer Egan won the Pulitzer."

Randy's Holiday Pick 2017: "Wow! Here is a collection of stories that are at times funny, often moving, and all are really, really good, if not great. Welcome to Mars is perhaps my favorite. It’s Kirk’s 19th birthday and he joins his father to go surfing in what turns out to me a defining day in his life. And then there’s Alan Bean Plus Four which is a hilarious telling of a journey 4 friends take to the moon. Read it. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by Tom Hanks as a writer."

Bee's Holiday Pick 2017: "I find all of Molly's work fun and engaging. Witch Boy is no different. It's a wonderful graphic novel that takes a fun story, but then uses that as a vessel to introduce discussion on gender issues and the damages forcing binary norms. Meant for younger readers, but I think would be fun for anyone."
