Here’s what the library staff are reading this week… You may notice we’re a bit short on staff members this week. It seems some of them were too busy reading to actually tell me the titles. Silly bookworms!
Use the comments to tell us what you’re reading.
|Smallville (season 4)
It was the weekend of July 4th. What’s more American than Superman?
|When by Victoria Laurie. It’s about a teenage girl who can see death dates on people’s foreheads, but the question is, can she do anything to change them? It’s a good mystery with drama and suspense. I liked it a lot.
|One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia. A junior fiction book about 3 young sisters who live in Brooklyn, New York. They travel to Oakland, California to visit their mother who abandoned them and along the way meet a lot of different characters. It’s a coming of age trilogy; a fun book that definitely take you on a journey.
|View from the Cheap Seats, by Neil Gaiman. This is only the second book by Neil Gaiman I’ve read, but I love his writing and have become fond of his blog. So being able to read all of these “selected nonfiction” pieces is enjoyable. Recommended.
|The Secrets of Attraction by Robin Constantine
I love a fun teen summer romance novel that’s a quick read!
|Creativity, Inc. : overcoming the unseen forces that stand in the way of true inspiration, by Edwin E Catmull. The book was a recommendation from a tech podcast that I listen to. When reading this book you will get a glimpse of behind the scene at Pixar Animation. Also the creative process and the struggles that they went through to become what they are today. It was a wonderful read to get some new fresh ideas.
