Andrea's favorite reads are tragic love stories, gruesome murder mysteries, and clever fantasies. She judges books by their covers more frequently than she should. She spends her Bookshop days shelving new hardcover releases, science fiction/fantasy, and IndieBound picks and bestsellers. Her favorite kinds of book questions are the ones that begin, "I don't remember the title and I don't remember the author, but it's got a blue cover..." When she's not at Bookshop, Andrea can be found participating in competitive trivia downtown, completing logic puzzles in the sunshine, or forcibly cuddling cats. She is a firm believer in the Oxford comma.

The sisters' physical and emotional journey will teach them about the secrets that families keep from the rest of the world and from each other.
The New York Times called it "the best book you'll read all year," and I have to agree. Saunders' stories are completely unlike anything I've read before. At once profoundly disturbing, thought provoking, and enlightening, Saunders masterfully captures the odd, ragged edges of our life stories. This incendiary collection of mind-bending stories will tear you apart, then patch you back up with a kiss on the forehead.
It's dangerous to go alone! Take this. Hyrule Historia is a wealth of information for the Legend of Zelda franchise. It contains concept art, a history of Hyrule, and an exclusive manga. Any hardcore Zelda fan would be stoked to add it to their inventory!
