Allison's Picks

Allison is an avid lover of books that don't take themselves too seriously because neither do they. They enjoy books full of humor, heart, and prose that makes you stop and say, "dang, that's some good prose". Allison enjoys talking in the third person but does not prefer it.

Colorful, irreverent, and hilarious. This series is a visual treat and just a whole lot of fun. It's one of the most comic books to ever comic book as every panel is jam packed full of jokes.

Published: First Second - July 17th, 2018

A hilarious, wacky, sight-gag filled adaptation of an equally hilarious, wacky, and heart-warming actual play podcast. I love this world and all of its characters, especially the cat wizard who runs the Fantasy Costco.

I Kissed Shara Wheeler: A Novel By Casey McQuiston Cover Image
$19.99
ISBN: 9781250244451
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Wednesday Books - May 3rd, 2022

If Gone Girl (minus the whole murder thing) and Looking for Alaska had a baby in a small, conservative Southern town, I Kissed Shara Wheeler would be it. A funny, diverse, engaging book about first loves, first hates, and solving the mystery of a missing teen queen who might not be everything she appears to be. It's basically the wacky, queer, teen rom-com of my dreams.

ISBN: 9780345391803
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Del Rey - September 27th, 1995

Probably the first sci-fi book that I fell in love with because practically every line is more clever and hilarious than the last.

Legends & Lattes: A Novel of High Fantasy and Low Stakes By Travis Baldree Cover Image
$17.99
ISBN: 9781250886088
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Tor Books - November 8th, 2022

A cozy fantasy book that I breezed through. I highly recommend reading this book while wrapped up in your softest blankets and sipping a nice, warm cup of coffee. I strongly believe that's the way the book was meant to be experienced.
