Inquiring minds want to know
It's been a crazy day today and I've been a little scattered. What to write, what to write? Since I couldn't come up with a fabulous book I've read, I decided to ask my co-workers about what they've been reading. Take a look and see what you think.
Denise just discovered Chris Cleave by reading Gold, she now has plans to read his earlier two books.
Ruth's is an older book that she just loved, calling it disturbing but so good, Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald.
Katie liked Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple (MADreads reviewer Kylee also loved this one). Katie is also really enjoying Defending Jacob by William Landry (this one has been on my tbr pile for a while).
Jaime had a bunch of suggestions. Like Jenny she's been reading some YA books, Enclave and Outpost by Ann Aguirre. But she's also loving a couple others. Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio - a mystery that jumps between 1933 and the present day - and The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin which is" also set in WA, this time in fruit farming country of central Wash at the turn of the century. Beautiful character study of solitary orchardist Talmadge who quietly tends his land and trees in a lonely harmony until the day two young, frightened and very pregnant girls show up."
Tim has two recommendations, one nonfiction, one mystery. His nonfiction read is Twelve by Twelve: A One-Room Cabin Off the Grid and Beyond the American Dream by William Powers and his mystery is one by William Kent Krueger, Northwest Angle.
Joe just finished a favorite of several MADreaders, Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell.
This is a nice mix of titles and I have already placed holds on a couple of promising suggestions. How about you? What are some of your recent favorites?
