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.

April 4th is School Librarian Appreciation Day and of all the truly random holidays, this one is our total and complete favorite. Think back to your elementary school days. Did you have a librarian who let you check out as many books as you wanted – well above your reading level – without making you feel strange or different? Maybe your middle school librarian had a pet rat that lived among the stacks Wormtail-style. Or maybe your high school librarian let you and your friends eat lunch there, because she knew how much easier your day would be. We’re giving back to those folks who planted that literary seed. Because it’s never too late to say thank you.

Summer blockbuster season is in full swing with great movies like Avengers: Infinity War, Incredibles 2 and Ocean's 8. But, maybe you are looking for something that isn’t so sequel heavy. Perhaps you are looking for something a little more bookish and shorter in length.
Welcome to the Quirk Books Film Festival, where we highlight five of our favorite book trailers from the past ten years. Quirk pioneered the Hollywood-style book trailer, pushing them beyond a simple ad for the book by making them compelling standalone pieces that tell a story. And, these trailers are sure to delight and surprise with their CGI effects, intense action sequences, suspenseful build-ups and pop-culture touch points.
Break out your popcorn and happy viewing!
