I'm Kali, a bookseller at LBB, born in the backwoods from a wolf and a panther. I like to read mysteries, true crime and the creepiest of fiction. Anything that makes you keep the night light on. I also dip into nonfiction, too. I love science books, particularly books about anthropology, and I also love history, ancient or contemporary. I howl and snarl in my spare time.
Fascinating and insightful! This book gives you an in-depth look into the lives of the five women behind the infamous ripper murders. I was absolutely enthralled and completely devastated by these women's stories.
Hands down the first book in my favorite YA series! A spellbinding historical gothic with rounded characters and a plot will keep you up until you get to the last page.
Part political history, part science journal. This books takes you on a journey through the domestication of one of the cuddliest yet elusive creatures in the wild, from the challenges of dealing with the animals to the political upheaval Russia was going through at the time of the study. I absolutely loved this book.
BELIEVE THE HYPE!! If you haven't heard, the first in an epic, fantasy series, as amazing as it is dark.
Equal parts action and insight. Dread nations is a Reconstruction-era story where the dead walk and not all the living are valued.
These werewolves are feral, out of control, and absolutely bloodthirsty. And I loved it!. This book is great for those who want to get into the lore of creatures that will have them leaving the night light on.
A perfect blend of a supernatural thriller and mystery, where every chapter gives you another piece of the puzzle and a little bit of magic.
For fans of Alice in Wonderland, get ready to be swept into the world beyond the tollbooth!
For lovers of our furry friends! This book takes you into the past and futures of our domestic pals; how they got to be by our side and the good and bad of what it really means to leave behind their homes in nature. An easy and fascinating read!
My absolute favorite post-outbreak story. Calling it a Zombie Story wouldn't do it justice. Carey's writing is lyrical, his ideas are original, and the book ends in a heart-wrenching way that still manages to leave readers hopeful.
This world is so rich and the characters so compelling that this book was hard to put down. One of the best high fantasy books I've ever read.
Well-researched and thought-provoking. Kean takes us through the histories of some of our most famous scientists and notorious experiments in an honest, accessible, and at times humorous. Should be required reading for anyone who wants to put on the lab coat.
My absolute favorite book of fairy tales! Hilarious, out-of-the-ordinary stories for every reader.
Email or call for availability and/or price.
A great concept executed brilliantly. In a story where children have to fight for their lives, we get an intimate look into each of the children's lives, making the story heartbreakingly human.
A incredible tale of how far a person will go to fool themselves and those around them when billions of dollars and pride are on the line.
Whether you're an aspiring fantasy writer or just a fan of history or fantasy, this book is a must-have!
An equal parts inspiring and brutally honest account of one woman's career in a field that is often thought of as devoid of bias. In beautifully-written language, Colwell doesn't pull any punches in recounting the all-too-common subtle and blatant sexism while also giving doable solutions that could open up the STEM field to more women and minorities to the benefit of us all.
A thought-provoking history that challenges the myth that the US is a nation of immigrants.
Another cautionary tale of a mythological unicorn founder whose wealth is gained nearly all from charisma and who loses it all when reality sets in. Fans of Bad Blood, the Elizabeth Holmes story, will absolutely love this new tale of delusion and greed.
An absolutely stunning book! James manages to mold beautiful verse into a modern folklore that will keep readers' eyes glued to the pages.
Another fantastic edition to the Myron Bolitar series! Coben truly is the master of twists as he builds suspense with every chapter while working up to an ending that you'll never be able to guess. This particular book sent a chill down my spine that I have yet to be able to shake out!
