Derrick's Picks

What an awesome read! Finished in two days. I couldn't wait to find out the ending and just when I thought I knew what was going on, nope Kimi twisted it! Loved it!


What a whirl wind of a book! I couldn't put this one down. You can't trust anyone in this psychological thriller!!


What a great read! For fans of Where the Crawdads Sing, Book Woman of Troublesome Creek and Girls in the Stilt House will love this book about two sisters and their family!


I loved this book! I can't wait to read the rest of the series when it comes out. A corpse sniffing dog, a mystery, what else could you ask for! Fantastic!


What a roller coaster of a book. Part horror, part thriller. I couldn't put this one down. Creepy and disturbing yet redeeming and forgiving. What a debut!!


What a fantastic sophomore novel by Alex! I read this in two sittings! It was great! That is all I am going to say because I don't want to spoil any of the fun!!


What a fast paced thrill ride! Like the movie Speed but in the air! I couldn't put this one down and can't wait to sell it to our customers!


I loved this middle school novel by one of the greatest basketball players of all time, Lebron James! Read this in one sitting! Can't wait to see if he writes more! I will read them all!


Chris Whitaker's We Begin at the End is exactly the kind of book we need right now in these uncertain times. Great escapism. Heart breaking at times, with a slight edge of humor. I couldn't put this down and you won't be able to either! My favorite book in a few years!! A piece of excellent literature with a slight mystery element. I cried out a few times during the last few chapters. Didn't see it coming at all!!


What an awesome book! Couldn't put this one down. Will definitely read his backlist. A Nazi hunter, a cult, a huge dog all wrapped up into a thriller! What more could you want!!!!


I will read anything by Sharon Creech! If she put out a book on bio-genetic engineering I would read it! Great book about finding your true self and what it means to be you! Can't wait to see what she comes out with next!


What a great follow up to A Wolf Called Wander! This time in the Salish Sea!! When an orca brother and sister are separated from their pod, they need to find their way back! While they are trying to find their way back, they help others along the way. I learned a lot about the orcas and their ecosystem in this great book! This book shows the true meaning of family and what it means to love them eternally, while finding how to be your true self!


I couldn't put this gritty crime novel down! This is as good if not better than Like Lions!! This is all you want in a crime novel. There is too much to write here but trust me, any crime novel lover will love this novel!!


This was creepier than his last one (Whisper Man). A few twists and turns and you don't know who or what is going on until the final few pages. All centered around lucid dreaming, North does a great job at creeping you out and describing haunting ideas!


Classic Gudenkauf! Nothing is as it seems in this twisty book. And there are secrets galore. Read in two days, couldn't put it down. Can't wait to sell this book to mystery lovers!!


Upon Further Review by Mike Pesca is great for any sports fans who need their sports fix during these hard times! Filled with "What If" stories, I blew through this in a few days!


What a read! This gnarly tale of Sasquatch is nothing you have ever read before. It shows what you will do to survive, stopping at nothing to live another day! I blew through this book in a matter of a couple days and loved every second! When Mount Rainier erupts, it forces wildlife to move down the mountain into a secluded neighborhood. After that a battle of wits ensues! Who will win? Man or beast??


Part horror part thriller. Reminds me of the movie Jennifer's Body. Julie goes missing for two years and then just like that she is back. Subtle things show she's not the same girl she used to be. So who...or she?!


Great book of short stories! Loved the one about the bookmobile! Can't wait for Joe to write another book so I can crush it in two days like I did this one!


This novel is a witty and funny one about two kids who happen to spontaneously combust when they get agitated. Don't let this funky premise turn you off though. It is quite moving. I finished it in two days, just couldn't put it down!


Wow, Wow, Wow!! What a debut by Alex Michaelides! This was such a page turner I was late for work a few times because I couldn't put it down. Dive into Alicia's life after she kills her husband and hasn't uttered a word since! WHOA! Such a great twist at the end too, had my jaw on the floor!! Best mystery I have read in years!!


Great piece of horror fiction! There were a lot of creepy parts in this huge book! I couldn't put it down and I didn't know where it was going at all!


This novel had me hearing whispers every time I read it! It's creepy but SO GOOD! This has everything: Copy Cat crimes, twists, turns, look over your shoulder while you read-ness! Loved it!!


What a great way to end this nice little trilogy about three best friends growing up in Florida. Beverly, at the age of 14 runs away from home. She is out on her own and she does quite well for her self! Great story!!


I love all of Sharon Creech's novels, and this is no exception. Louie has problems with raising animals, but when a sickly baby donkey comes home, his luck just might change. Quick, easy, and fun read for the whole family.
