Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Onley James Books - June 28th, 2021

Hear me out! Yes, this book is dark, but the darkness comes from what the characters are, not who they are. In this chase, Adam and his brothers are psychopaths who kill evil people, but are very nice otherwise. There's a reason why this book is all over Tik Tok. Adam and Noah are cute, there's a dope mystery, and hot smut - what more do you want? [Danielle]

The Atmospherians: A Novel Cover Image
$18.00

Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Atria Books - February 8th, 2022

A sharp, darkly funny social satire focused on two friends who start a cult for 'problematic' men. The book also takes aim at the wellness industrial complex and more. At once absurd and way to real, I think Alex McElroy's debut novel is brilliant and I can't wait to see what they write next! [Adrienne]

This book follows the life of Ruthie - growing up in the forest of a small town in Montana - watching the town change as it gets developed and invaded by vacationers. It's very normal until the end. This book's ending is not normal, nor typical - so brace yourself. Also, the style is fantastic! [Blanca]
