The Library Reads list arrived this week and their number one book for October is The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab. “Addie is an adventurer and not ready to settle for village life, so she makes a deal with the devil. Instead of relinquishing her soul, however, she becomes immortal, and also completely forgotten by anyone who meets her. Then, after a lonely 300 years, she meets Henry. This is for fans of the Shades of Magic series, The Time Traveler’s Wife, and Life After Life.” (10-6) Patti Lang
Fantasy readers will enjoy Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse. “Fans of epic fantasy looking for something new will surely love the amazing world-building and strong characters in this pre-Columbian Americas story about prophecy, destiny, politics, and revenge, all with a healthy dose of magic. This is for fans of Gods of Jade and Shadow and the Broken Earth series.” (10-15) Dan Brooks
Lisa Unger’s new page turner is Confessions on the 7:45. “Serena finds out that her husband is sleeping with the nanny, and then confides in a mysterious woman she meets on the train. The woman continues to contact Serena as her world implodes. Who is this strange woman, and is she responsible for the mess Serena finds herself in? Full of twist, turns, and different points of view, this one is perfect for those who like Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins.” (10-6) Shari Suarez
Goodnight Beautiful by Aimee Molloy is another mystery that will keep you turning the pages. “Dr. Statler, a psychologist, reformed womanizer, and new husband, is staring down his demons and trying to be a better man. Sam and Annie relocate to upstate New York to try their hand at a simpler life and to care for his dementia-ridden mother. One night Sam leaves his office and never makes it home. This is for fans of The Last Mrs. Parrish and The Silent Patient.” (10-13) Vanessa Phillips
I love Fannie Flagg and her latest is The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop. “The story revisits the small town of Whistle Stop, Alabama. Dot, the postmistress, sends out a yearly Christmas letter and brings the former residents up to speed with one another. Each chapter focuses on a different year, from the thirties through the present day, tied together with Dot’s annual letters. This is for readers who enjoyed Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café. (10-27) Sharon Hutchinson
The newest Timber Lake K9 Mystery is out. Number six in this series is Hanging Falls. I’m in the middle of it and don’t want to finish because it will be months before another one is published.
I’d love to share what you’re reading. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you’re enjoying.
One thing we’re enjoying is this “fallish” weather. It’s a great time to visit the library. Happy reading!
