Pumpkinheads

This book is the perfect Fall book and will definitely be one I add to my reading list this time every year. Seasonal best friends Deja and Josiah are finishing their final day of work ever at the pumpkin patch they both love dearly. The book follows them around the park as they have one last adventure. Filled with laughs, sighs, and so many fantastic fall food suggestions, this book will make you want to put on a cozy sweater and sip some warm apple cider.

Because Internet: Understanding the New Rules of Language
by Gretchen McCulloch

Submitted by Molly J.
The Internet has influenced our language in more ways than one would expect. This book analyzes the changes in the English language from the days of online chatrooms to Snapchat. Minutia such as capitalization and punctuation can mean wildly different things in "internet speak." If you have any interest in internet culture or linguistics, Because Internet is both entertaining and informative.

The Tenderness of Stones
by Marion Fayolle

Submitted by Erik S.
This graphic novel’s cover art and enigmatic title drew me in, and I read it not knowing what to expect. What I got was a daughter’s memoir of her aging father’s illness, transformed into a surreal parable of loss and mourning. I enjoyed the subdued (though memorable) illustration style, and although the symbolism is perhaps a bit “on the nose” (a pun readers of the book will understand), it worked well for what the book was trying to accomplish.
