Taylor is the Gift Buyer and Photographer here at Avid Bookshop. She started in November of 2017 during the holidays and now has the chance to snap the photos for our social media along with stocking the shop with adorable gifts! Boy oh boy does she like spooky books but also anything to do with fashion. When she's not consuming the latest sci-fi, you can find her either channel surfing the best BBC shows or shredding the surf on the inter-webs in the pursuit of finding the cutest goodies to bring to Avid.
This was my favorite book of 2018! Co-written by the great-grandnephew of Bram Stoker, Dacre Stoker, and horror author extraordinaire, J.D. Barker, Dracul brings the classic tale of Dracula back from the dead. Horrifying, mesmerizing, and terrifying, you’ll be hanging on every word waiting to see how the familiar tale shows the erie beginnings of Bram and Dracula.
Everyone has a favorite classic, and I prefer the tragic ones with a doomed love story. Even the best among us can be haunted through life and become victim to devastating fates filled twisted secrets. From the death of her parents to cruel treatment in her orphanage to falling for the classic, grumpy 18th century man, Jane Eyre’s journey shows the true colors of courage, wisdom, and endurance.
There is a stranger among us. An outsider who looks like you, acts like you, but commits an unspeakable crime. The king of horror is back, and he’s not messing around this time. For those looking for a terrifying mystery, look no further than the latest Stephen King novel.
It’s a bird! No! It’s a plane! No! IT’S A GIANT BEAR!
In a post-apocalyptic world ruined by the research of an irresponsible biotech lab, the bizarre lurks over head. What is left of civilization must live around the unstoppable and uncontrollable creatures left in the wreckage. Yet, not every creature is here for pure destruction. Learn how a small green lump evolves into just about anything. Even the smallest can be consumed by the little humanity left.
Dream a little dream of me…. and never wake up. This is no ordinary coma. Imagine a plague spreading through a small town. Yet, instead of the zombie illness that I know your mind is conjuring up, the plague starts with subtle sleepiness. A deep sleep that has no end.
Act like a lady, they say. Alright them, I could be a doctor or a technician or a military officer or a firefighter, or an astronaut! A book filled with inspiring photographs of women at work and what they wore. Did I mention that the forward is introduced by Roxane Gay?
We are all a slave to fashion. Victims in waiting- from the body altering corset, the bank-breaking prices, and devastated lives of those who make our clothes. From the frivolous, irrational, and unnatural, the history of what were wear is telling to what is overlooked for the sake of fashion.
BRILLIANT! A must read for the sci-fi enthusiast! Don’t take your life for granted. There are infinite realities so much worse. Get ready for twist that catches you off guard!
