Library Love is a recurring post in which I share the week’s current bounty from my public libraries.
I have a huge confession to make. I have library fines. Like, huge ones. And, we lost a book. Thus. Thus, we are avoiding the library like the plague. Thus, all of my checkouts are for the Kindle only. Man, I hope we find that book soon. We really need to get back to the Richard Gere Branch library (okay, so it’s not technically named after Richard Gere, but that’s what we call it). In the meantime, however, here’s what I’ve found on the digital side of things:
- Boy, Snow, Bird: A Novel by Helen Oyeyemi
- The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom
- Margot by Jillian Cantor
- You Should Have Known by Jean Harff Korelitz
- Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
- Men We Reaped by Jesmyn Ward
- All I Have In This World by Michael Parker
- Zelda: A Biography by Nancy Milford
Boy, Snow, Bird is apparently somewhat based on the story of Snow White, and has received great reviews. I’ve been wanting to read The Kitchen House for ages, and am really looking forward to that one! Margot, by Jillian Cantor, is a fictional tale based on what would have happened had Anne Frank’s sister survived the Holocaust – I think it will be very interesting. I’m also anxious to read Men We Reaped, a memoir by Jesmyn Ward, who wrote Salvage the Bones (great book). All I Have In This World is a new release that sounded pretty interesting, as is You Should Have Known. And Zelda: A Biography, of course, will tell me more about one of my favorite women of the Jazz Age. All in all, I think it’s going to turn out to be a good haul. Let’s just hope I make it back into the good graces of our local librarian by next week…
