What we are reading … Staff Picks

Libby  – I’ve been reading The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.  They are YAF, young adult fiction, books, so they are quick reads.  The books are futuristic twists to beloved fairy tales. Lots of action, surprises and they are fun to read.  1) Cinder 2) Scarlet 3) Cress 4) Winter.

Melinda – I picked up The Rooster Bar by John Grisham.  I hadn’t been reading much of his because I got tired of “dense” books.  However, I tried Camino Island and loved it, so turned back to Grisham.  Unfortunately, nothing has hooked me into reading this yet.  I’m struggling to get involved with the characters.

Kevin – I’m reading Camino Island by John Grisham.  I really like the interactions between all of the characters.

Joann – I try to read from every genre in the library, and this week I am reading The Cruel Prince, by Holly Black.  It’s a Young Adult book, about sisters who were kidnapped and taken to live in the High Court of Faerie. Fantasy based, however still dealing with issues of trust, envy, struggling to fit, the same as people everywhere would have.

Lynne – I’m reading Hidden Figures.  There has been a recent movie adaptation of this book.  It’s about the African American women who worked for NASA, having brilliant minds, and were the backbone of the space program teams.

Kathy – I’m currently reading 2 books: When Mercy Rains by Kim Vogel Sawyer, and Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. Totally different books, but both are very good reading.

Brenda – I’ve been reading over the Golden Sower nominee book list.  The two I like best are Come With Me, which would be a great book for younger kids, to explain how they can make a positive impact in the world.  The other is The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet, a great book about singing “your” song, no matter what!

I’m also reading The Other Wife, a psychological thriller where a man unexpectedly finds secrets about his Father, after he finds a woman crying at his Father’s hospital bedside after a brutal attack.  By Michael Robotham.
