Once again some of the library staff is too busy reading to tell what they’re reading. Oh, well. Leaves more room for the rest of us. But next week, I’ll make them put their books down long enough to make them send an email.

We’d like to know what y’all are reading too! So, please feel free to let us know in the comments.

 

The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak

You might think a book with no pictures would be boring and serious. But in this book everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud even if the words say BLORK or BLUURF. Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, this book is one that kids will beg to hear again and again.

Parts by Tedd Arnold

The boy in this book discovers a disturbing trend. There’s fuzz in his belly button, his toes are peeling, and something just fell out of his nose. The last straw is a loose tooth which convinces him of the awful truth that his parts are coming unglued!

The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli

Oh no, the crocodile in this story has just swallowed a watermelon seed! Will vines sprout out his ears? Will his skin turn pink?

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, by Jack Thorne (based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne).

This is the script of the stage play currently being performed in London. Despite the original insistence of those involved, it is, in fact, a sequel to the book series, as it begins at the last book’s epilogue. Since it is a play, the reading experience is vastly different from the books, and I found myself having difficulty really getting into the story because of that. The story itself seems rather fantastical, and not of the same quality as the book series, but was entertaining and fit the existing canon.

Recommended for fans of the book series – and remember, it’s paramount to read these in order…. J

Black Tide Rising (short stories)

A collection of stories by different authors, but all set in the zombie apocalypse ‘verse I was reading a few weeks ago.

 The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

It’s got a pretty cover and a cool name. So I read the first two pages. There’s an undercover librarian on a spy mission.

Of course, I’m going to read the book.
