Before The Great British Bake Off, I don’t know that I’d ever even heard of a macaron before, but now that I’ve had one, I can never go back. Luckily, there’s an amazing café right around the corner from the Quirk office that makes some of the best macarons in Philadelphia.
But with so many flavors out there, it can be hard to pick just one. It’s like trying to choose which book to read next! There are just too. many. good. choices.
Now, we can’t help with your macaron choices, but luckily, we can help you pick a new book. Just pick a macaron flavor below and we’ll tell you which Quirk book to read next.

It’s almost our favorite day of the entire year: Summer Solstice. The days have been getting blissfully longer, bringing us prime reading time in those post-work hours. And now it’s here! The longest day of the year! Celebrate those extra minutes of sunshine with these extra short – extra incredible – novels. Because the longest day of the year calls for your shortest read of the year.

It’s National Cheese Day (a holiday we like to celebrate all year long!) and while we’d love to spend it noshing on a delicious chunk of brie, there’s another kind of cheese that’s on our mind: cheesy, sweet young adult romance. Okay, have you read the entire To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series? Do you know how incredible your summer reading experience is about to get? We love cheesy, sweet YA romcoms. So, go ahead and grab a cheese board (mmmm, mozzarella), find a sunny spot, and dive into a different kind of cheese.

It’s summer and all we want to do is be outdoors as much as possible. But how can we bring our literary love to the great outdoors? By reading about hiking trails and assigning difficulty ratings to each book’s emotional journey — as we embark on our own trails! — of course. So put on some sunscreen, lace up your boots, and get those summer hiking plans going.
