What Better Place to Read about Ghosts than These Haunted Libraries?

It's finally here! We're so excited for the release of Marc Hartzman's new book, Chasing Ghosts, on sale September 28, 2021, and can't wait for readers to dive into this beautiful exploration of our country's long and obsessive history with phantoms and apparitions. Whether you prefer e-book or paperback, there are plenty of ways for you to get a copy. But if you plan on grabbing one at your local bookstore or library, then you better make sure it's not one of these haunted locations. Otherwise, you might just become the subject of Hartzman's next book…

The second book in the Little Kid, Big City! series comes out today, and where we previously got to explore New York, this time we're going to be poking around London. A travelogue of charming pictures and descriptions, written as a sort of choose your own adventure, is a fantastic way to read a travel book no matter what, but you know what would improve it? A cup of tea. Always a cup of tea, you can trust us on this one. So, to help you with this, we're picking some books and some teas we think go pretty well together, so you can settle in properly.

Like Mother's Day, Father's Day has snuck up on us this year, but no need to panic purchase another random tchotchke! It will only collect dust or get totally, unintentionally misplaced. Instead, give our latest list of Father's Day book recommendations a scroll, and make this year's celebration a book-filled one.

It’s Star Wars Day and we have so much to look forward to. First of all, we’re definitely signing off every Zoom call with “May the force be with you.” (It’s pretty much the law, right?) And once the work day ends, there’s a one hundred percent chance that we’re going to watch Bad Batch on Disney+. But with a week between episodes, it’s guaranteed that we’re going to need more Star Wars content than that. Lucky for you, we have an entire Star Wars TBR queued up, full of some of our favorite authors!

Book Recs Based on Select Anime

Did you know Quirk published an original Attack on Titan novel back in 2018 called Garrison Girl? Yup, that’s right! Here at Quirk HQ, we’re quiet but passionate anime fans, occasionally discussing manga at our monthly Comics Club and sometimes found crying over the return of Fruits Basket (the last season is officially here!).

So with National Anime Day landing on April 15th each year, it’s only natural we combine one of our favorite pastimes with another passion of ours. Yes, we mean books. Whether 1) you’ve watched these anime, read their manga/light novels counterparts, and are looking for a similar written story to jump into or 2) you’re a new anime fan hunting for shows based on a favorite read of yours, give this list a look-see for some TBR and TBW (to-be-watched) inspiration.

It’s World Party Day and while we’re definitely not going to any parties anytime soon, we can still find creative ways to hang out with our friends – especially when the aim of that hangout is to take things back to mid-2010s book Tumblr, with an IRL twist.
