What we are reading; Staff Picks

Libby  – I’m reading Lisa Jewel’s Watching You. Very intense psychological thriller. Just finished Charles Martin Send Down the Rain, and I always enjoy reading him. I’ve got a Patricia Briggs book and a C.J. Box book waiting in the wings

Melinda – I’m reading some Danielle Steel books. I haven’t read her in a while, just here and there. I really like The Award, a truly inspiring story. The most recent one I read was Beauchamp Hall. It is about a woman in the US that decided to visit the set of her favorite TV series. She goes to England and ends up being an extra on the set, then meeting the owners of Haversham castle. Her life changes in ways she couldn’t ever imagine.

I just started In Her Father’s Footsteps. I’ll update when I get a little further.

Kevin –  Reading (on and off) Don’t Waste Your Life by John Pieper. This is a book about living life in a way that promotes the glory of God. Also finished a book called Clear and Present Danger by Tom Clancy. This book was about a rogue intelligence mission to get revenge on the Colombian drug cartels for killing the U.S. head of the FBI or Attorney General or both.

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 just finished reading The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly. It is about a girl in East London in the late 1800’s. Jack the Ripper is on the loose and this story follows Fiona as she tries to survive and take care of her younger brother. I really enjoyed this book.

Kathy – I am reading the Red River of the North series by Lauraine Snelling.  I am currently reading the fifth book in the series, Tender Mercies.  Great series with lots of insight into the immigrants from Norway, who settled in the North Dakota Red River Valley.

For a totally different genre, I just finished reading the 17th Suspect by James Patterson.  Another sequel to the Women’s Murder Club Series.  They are always good reading!
