Staff Picks for Fall 2017

Disarming Beauty by Julian Carron

“Beautiful!” -Joe G.

Seven Brief Lessons on Physics by Carlo Rovelli

“I am reading this for the second time this summer.”-Nina E.

The Guilty by David Baldacci

“It helps to know something about the protagonist, Will Robie’s, background, but it is not essential to feeling the tension in the story. After making what could have been a life-altering mistake in his secret field, Will returns to his Mississippi hometown to help his estranged father fight a murder rap. Obviously, matters become more convoluted, and you don’t know who is going to ‘buy the farm’ next. Besides that, not everything is as it seems! The bad guys eventually suffer the consequences, and Will moves on, ready for the next novel in the series! Plenty of action, and a sufficient amount of suspended reality to keep you reading.” -Neal M.

The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See

“Wow, it was wonderful, and went in so many directions.”  -Marian L.

Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout

“I just finished Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout.  Like many of her books, she incorporates characters from past books.  However, they don’t necessarily have a big role in the story, but they help set up some of the current characters.  This book revolves around the town that her last book’s main character, Lucy Barton, came from.  I enjoyed knowing more of Lucy’s back story and the important role her family played in the current character’s lives. This book is a great slice of life in small town America.” -Lynae V.
