Dani's Picks

I am a self-proclaimed book and coffee lover, so I consider myself lucky to get to work with my two favorite things! My top book series include Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness and The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. I love anything in the scifi/fantasy or historical fiction genres. My go-to coffee drink is an Americano, but I also enjoy London Fogs and any kind of tea...Stop in and see me!

The Magicians Trilogy
 
A coming-of-age story that is definitely not typical or boring. Grossman's characters are realistic, moody, hedonistic, and gifted. This series is comparable to a darker, angstier Narnia. Grossman combines childhood storybook fantasy and magical education within contemporary settings. A very interesting read!
