Writing a bio that is not too serious and not too corny feels impossible. Anyway, bri is a bookseller representing folks who used to read voraciously and are now trying to rebuild the habit. So far, they like reading abolitionist literature and fiction with a splash of magic.
The perfect size to fit in most backpacks + bags while allowing enough space on a page/spread to work through ideas, the perfect amount of texture to keep your lines clean without feeling sterile, a compact spiral binding that sits flat while you work... and a really, really good price.
I'm not a girl, and these stories and illustrations of the world's heroes have me falling in love with book magic all over again. A most treasured addition to my dragon's hoard; this is a book built to be hugged to the chest.
This book is exactly like that perfect breakfast you or a loved one made that one time. That’s just the feeling I had reading it one warm morning a little while ago.
This book draws me to the kind of awareness I usually only feel moving through the trees. I mean this as the highest compliment I can summon: I am foaming at the mouth to see the most stunning raw/earthy/modern artists on the net borrow bits of these poems for their captions
Inhaled this. I’ve thought about a different story from this book each day since I finished it: cool, funny, sexy, horrifying, and heartbreaking experiences are all on the table. I'm left wishing Elliot a lifetime of trans euphoria (and the writing is so well-crafted, hoping he writes another book someday). p.s. check content warnings on storygraph
Tiffany invites us in on the joke while revisiting iconic moments in fandom history within lighthearted, thoughtful, accessible writing. Everything I Need I Get From You is the fresh lemon juice that makes sense of deep-fried memes and the internet’s chaotic creativity.
In a funny, flowing narrative, Aretha meets Aaron: a sweet quippy coffee guy whose roommates are into doomsday prepping. In spite of her best friend’s qualms, she cautiously leans into this trio of survivalists... This book was crafted with wit, and it’s satisfying as hell to boot.
The afternoon I spent reading this book was one of my absolute favorites all year: a really beautifully illustrated earthly story, dovetailing with a few fairytales, perfectly balances fantasy and groundedness. IDK dude, just so good
This book sunk its claws into me slowly, without me noticing, much like the house at the center of the hauntings. A few major themes that never get lost in each other and never feel too clean, but in proximity make you feel something, remind me of a Rothko. If at all possible, when you get to the endgame, burrow in: you don’t wanna miss a word of how they all tie together.
An art style to die for, just enough story to create an impression of worlds beyond or within ours… Reading this really felt like turning the corners in an art gallery to fall in love with a series of paintings. Might be perfect for contemporary/fine arts lovers with an interest in fantasy, or someone whose favorite paintings tell a story.
Space Trash is a spacepunk cupcake: I wanna house these as they come along, and oh my god I love the color palette.

For those who inhaled the website, you may wonder if this newest volume (released 13 years after the first) holds up to your memories of scrolling for side-splitting hours. It’s tough to compete with the magic of nostalgia, but here, Brosh spectacularly renders her childhood & adult experiences in her signature style (plus a new expressive element: eyeshine). Get in for the hyperbolic hilarity. Leave with your heart a half-size bigger.
With eldritch layering of meanings and entrancing precision of language, it's like a cross-section of how it feels to exist within the violence of cisheteropatriarchy. A slicing — and suddenly writhing colors and shapes overwhelm the mind's eye, exposing a configuration too nebulous to describe outright — it's surreal to see something so elusive being documented, like taking a photo of the feeling that there is something else in the house when you are alone.
Maybe my favorite author — a melancholy thread runs through his books that easily wraps around my heartstrings. With a masterful blend of fantasy elements and uncluttered prose, Ishiguro creates a story about things better forgotten with implications so personal and so transnational that it becomes almost a fairytale.
Glimmering with lavish imagery, ethereal world-building, and clarity of diction, Daughter of the Moon Goddess is a hero's journey that argues navigating love (of friends, family, and admirers) is essential to coming of age. A remarkable debut filled with monsters, magic, the cruelty of those who love power, and my favorite — dragons.

Beautiful sentences on every page, a few too many to highlight, so I gave up and devoured the book.
This book extends a gravity to cultural events and patterns often dismissed or derided. It feels like a late-night conversation with a very smart friend who starts talking at length about something unexpected, where I'm more than content to keep listening, prompting her to continue with little questions and refilling her glass: in this case, simply by turning the page.
Took me (exactly) 2.5 years to finish and it gave me nightmares. Definitely recommend.
