Whether you are looking for books to beat the Winter blahs or have signed up for a dizzying array of book challenges: this book has a great plot with lots of action and a decent amount of character growth. It is the second in the Peter Ash series but you can start here if you so choose.
This was a fun cozy mystery set in a small town bookstore. Every small town has its secrets, rivalries, and past. There is a bit of sweet romance too.
A contemporary, more open-door romance for the booklover with hermit tendencies…
The first book of Riordan’s I have ever read. Don’t judge me. I don’t need to recommend these as they fly off the shelf. His latest gives a respectful and loving nod to the novels of Jules Verne in this undersea adventure of teen protagonist’s trying to save the world! It was so fun!
This has been requested so many times by my Preschool friends that I just bought them their own copy. It is funny and has great illustrations.
This graphic novel is beloved by our Teen patrons and for good reason. It has a great sense of atmosphere and adventure with a light touch of romance.

Two dystopian books about memory. One set in contemporary times and the other shortly after the time of King Arthur. Both have very interesting things to say about the effect of disordered memories on civilization.

A contemporary, “meta” mystery with Anthony Horowitz as one of the characters. Reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie.
A classic tale of family, secrets, and intergenerational trauma. Sound boring? You haven’t read Morrison! You will feel the pain, sorrow, happiness, and love.
Korman’s new book focusing on a group of “good” students when something hateful happens. Who did it and why? You will be surprised.

Yesterday I visited the CNCAP Preschool for the first time this year. Destiny approves my choice of books! The Preschoolers have a goal of reading 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. This is the perfect opportunity to share your favorite childhood books with new readers.
