STORY TIME ON THE MOVE


Story Time is moving back to the library. Join Ms. Natalie Tuesday at 11 a.m. in the library garden for stories and more. While you’re here, check out some wonderful books to read aloud to those little people. Some of my best childhood memories are of my mother reading to me every night. That, and the fact that I saw her reading everything she could get her hands on, made me a reader. 

There are a few more titles from the October Library Reads list we haven’t covered, including The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow. “In a world where women and magic have been burned and bound, three sisters set about to bring power and rights back to women, and in doing so, find their way back to each other. This is for fans of Uprooted and Circe.” (10-13) Melanie Liechty

Ring Shout by P Djeli Clark is set in Georgia in the 1920s. This fantastical horror story follows Mayse Boudreaux, a bootlegger seeking revenge for the killing of her family and who joins a motley group of soldiers in a battle against the Ku Klux Klan. This one appeals to those who liked Friday Black.” (10-13) Anna Mickelsen

On the much lighter side is Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade. “Marcus, the star of a fantasy TV series, secretly writes fanfiction and becomes online friends with April. He asks her to go out with him after a post of her cosplay costume goes viral. This delicious romance deals with topics like fatphobia, dyslexia and toxic families in a way that feels real and grounded, but which does not dampen the triumphant happiness of the ending. This is for fans of Dangerous Curves Ahead.” (10-6) Christi Hawn

Crazy Stupid Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams is “another enjoyable addition to the Bromance Book Club series. One of the elements I like about this series is how the author uses the book club as a tool to analyze various themes within the romance genre. This one was particularly good because it dealt with abandonment and forgiveness.” (10-27) Erica Narajo

As we rush toward the Christmas season, we find In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren. “Mae and Andrew’s families always vacation together at Christmas. This year’s no different, except Mae keeps experiencing the same days over and over, a la Groundhog Day. Can she get out of the loop long enough to tell Andrew she’s in love with him?” (10-6) Michelle Manotta. 

New this week on the nonfiction list is Don’t Lie to Me and Stop Trying to Steal Our Freedom by Jeanine Pirro. This Fox News host asks how anyone could vote against President Trump in the 2020 election. 

In Battlegrounds by HR McMaster, the former national security adviser gives his assessment of America’s standing in the world and challenges to national and international security.

Number one on the bestselling fiction list this week is The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult. After surviving a plane crash, a death doula travels to Egypt to reconnect wiht an old flame who is an archaeologist.

Also on the list is The Coast-to-Coast Murders by James Patterson and JD Barker. A detective and an FBI agent are baffled by a cross-country killing spree.

Finally, new this week is Next to Last Stand by Craig Johnson, number 16 in the ever-popular Longmire series. A million dollars in a shoebox and a piece of a painting might be clues to an art heist.

Just finished Dead in Dublin by Catie Murphy and felt it was mediocre at best. And I just began Dog On It: A Chet and Bernie Mystery by Spencer Quinn. This is number one in a popular series in the library. A dog is the narrator and hero in the story, so I think this is going to be a good one.

This has been such a beautiful week. Drop by the library and pick up a good book, DVD or CD. Happy reading!
