Book Reviews

Bookclubvertical

This week's Unshelved Book Club features books about a shark-obsessed six-year-old, a young boy mourning his sister, one-skein crochet projects, an ambitious student who sits next to a boy who is always creatively misbehaving (but who never gets caught), and a YA science fiction retelling of Moby Dick set on an alien world.

Unhinged Minds

Unhinged

Today we'd like to introduce you to a new sponsor, Unhinged Minds Designs. A self-professed bunch of "geeks, nerds, and bibliophiles," they are focused on creating merchandise for like-minded people—which pretty much sums up the Unshelved audience! Please go take a peek at their designs and give them a warm welcome.

Book Club Book Reviews

Bookclubvertical

This week's Unshelved Book Club features titles that would make for good book club discussions. They include books about machines that think, Andre Agassi, a young woman with an amazing culinary destiny, a terrorist's son, and a writer's open letter to his son about race in America.

Lucy & Andy Neanderthal

Neanderthal

This week's sponsor is Random House Children's Books. Later this month they are releasing Lucy & Andy Neanderthal, the first book in a delightful new graphic novel series from bestselling author Jeffrey Brown. This middle grade title deftly balances an entertaining and giggle-inducing storyline with scientific and historical content. Click through for a look inside!
