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 am now rereading the series of Guild Hunter books by Nalini Singh.  I picked up Angel’s Blood, which happened to be Book 1, so now I feel the need to read the whole series.  There are currently 13 books in this series about vampires, hunters, angels and Archangels.  

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she’s the best—but she doesn’t know if she’s good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, only one thing is clear—failure is not an option…even if the task is impossible.

Because this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.

The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other…and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn’t destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break…

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!
