Library Love is a recurring post in which I share each week’s bounty from my public libraries.
Oh. My. Lord. Y’all, this week has been nuts! We didn’t make it to our local library, but I did manage to find some great reads at the online libraries:
- The Secret of Magic by Deborah Johnson
- Mercy Snow by Tiffany Baker
- The Divorce Papers by Susan Rieger
- The Target by David Baldacci
- A Changed Man by Francine Prose
- Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead
The Secret of Magic is the June pick for my Literary Fiction by People of Color book group on Goodreads – I’m a month ahead, having already read our May pick (Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi). Mercy Snow is written by the author of another book I’ve read, The Little Giant of Aberdeen County, so I’m looking forward to seeing if this one lives up to the other’s glory. I don’t know much about The Divorce Papers, other than a lot of people are reading it and whispering words of praise, so I thought I’d check it out. The Target is written by one of my “guilty pleasure” authors, David Baldacci. A Changed Man sounds soooo good – about a rehabilitated skinhead making his amends – I can’t wait to get started on that one. Seating Arrangements is another novel that I’m reading mostly just because I’ve heard a lot of good things about it – don’t know too much about the plot, though. I don’t actually do that very often anymore – I like to know what to expect from my reads. Not one for surprises, not me! How about you?
Do you ever pick books to read without knowing what they’re about?
