  • We seem to have misplaced our calendar. Can anyone tell us what day it is?

    Oh that’s right. It’s Mean Girls day! And while we could just spend all day organizing a living room read of Much Ado About Mean Girls – we’re biased, but it’s hilarious – what we really want to do is head on over to North Shore High School and start handing out book recommendations around the cafeteria. Admit it, you want to know what The Plastics are reading when they’re not plotting everyone else’s complete demise. (It’s the picture book Corduroy. We know. We were surprised too.) Read on to see what else we’re recommending!

  • It’s National Tell a Joke Day and we cannot stop thinking about the books that have made us literally laugh out loud over the years. It’s rare for a book to dig into our brains that way, making it feel like the protagonist is telling a joke just for us. Why not celebrate that?

  • 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.
