Library Love is a recurring post in which I share each week’s bounty from my public libraries.
It was just in and out at the local library this week, y’all. Lazy, lazy, lazy me. For the rest of my happy little haul I raided my online libraries – don’t know if you’ve noticed, but they are my go-to place to access reading materials, as I prefer to read on my Kindle. Gasp! Calm down, book purists, I used to be one of you, too, and I do still read books in print… just not as much anymore. I won’t even get started down that road of explanation or my OCD will kick in and then I’ll be back to boycotting the local library branches… Anyway, y’all, let’s take a look at this week’s selections:
- Ruby by Cynthia Bond
- Mother, Mother by Koren Zailckas
- Casebook by Mona Simpson
- Fourth of July Creek by Smith Henderson
I’ve had Ruby on hold since before it was released; I’m anxious to get started on it. Mother, Mother, is supposed to be pretty intense, about a controlling mother who borders on the psychotic side of things. In Casebook, apparently a boy chronicles the dysfunction and deterioration of his family – might be a little depressing, but could be good. Fourth of July Creek received a rave review from a friend of mine on Goodreads, so I am officially intrigued enough to check it out. I’ve got some great ARC’s on my Kindle waiting to be read, as well, so it’s going to be a great week of reading ahead. Happy Reading to you all!
Do your friends’ opinions have an effect on what books you choose to read?
