What we are reading; Staff Picks


Libby  – I finished Thunder and Rain by Charles Martin and it was so good I read A Life Intercepted also by Martin. I’m now reading With You Always by Jody Hedlund. It is the first in her Orphan Train series.

Melinda – I decided to go back and read some authors I really like but hadn’t read much of lately.  I just finished Genuine Lies by Nora Roberts.  My new book series will be the FBI Profiler series by Lisa Gardner.  The first book is The Perfect Husband.

Kevin –  on a reading hiatus

Joann – I try to read from every genre in the library, and this week I am reading Golden Sower book selections.  My area is for primary grades, so I am reading picture books, and chapter books.

Lynne – I am reading Sons of Soldiers by Bruce Henderson.  It’s the story of Jews who escaped the Nazis, and returned to fight Hitler with the US military.

Kathy – I have started reading two books A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Miessner and The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson.  Both books are from a list for suggested summer reading and both are historical fiction centering around the years just prior to World War I.

Brenda – I am on the selection committee for the Golden Sower Book Nominees. I am currently reading off of a list of books that are being considered for nomination. Some of the books I have read and enjoyed are: The Wishtree by Katherine Applegate, The Sky at Our Feet by Nadia Hashimi, the Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris and Amina’s Voice by Hena Khan. For the Young reader we have a selection of books that will engage and entertain all ages.

Lois – The Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Karen -If you thought Silence of the Lambs was scary, read Unsub by Meg Gardiner.
