What Are You Reading This Week End?

A Spark of Light The warm fall day starts like any other at the Center—a women’s reproductive health services clinic—its staff offering care to anyone who passes through its doors. Then, in late morning, a desperate and distraught gunman bursts in and opens fire, taking all inside hostage.

The Library Book Susan Orlean, hailed as a “national treasure” by The Washington Post and the acclaimed bestselling author of Rin Tin Tin and The Orchid Thief, reopens the unsolved mystery of the most catastrophic library fire in American history, and delivers a dazzling love letter to a beloved institution—our libraries.

Be Our Ghost: A Merry Ghost Inn Mystery If bed-and-breakfast owners Melanie and Liza, along with their laughing ghost tenant, can’t find a real estate developer’s killer, their own estate will end up with their next of kin.

The Little Shop of Found Things (The Little Shop of Found Things #1) A new series about a young woman whose connection to antiques takes her on a magical adventure, reminiscent of Outlander

These all look so good. I just finished one that was excellent. Chariot on the Mountain by Jack Ford. Based on real events this one was a History lover’s dream!

I’ll be headed back for another eye surgery on Monday, so excuse me if I’m a bit slow next week!

Enjoy and let me know if you have a good book I should read!

    1. Ooh let me know what you think! I thought it was pretty nasty (in an interesting way) and thought it was a great character study.

  3. I hear really good things about the Little Shop of Lost Dreams! I’m reviewing an AVC of a crafting book, which looks set to be hilarious as I’ve roped in my best friend to try some of the activities (and we are not crafty people), and re-reading an old favourite: Coastliners. Hope your surgery goes ok!

  4. I’ve become an ultra-serious git of late, so I’m reading a lot of nonfiction, but laughing my way through John Hodgman’s Vacationland.

      1. I have an odd, deadpan sense of humor. My laugh-out-loud might be “meh” for someone else!

  5. I tend to read documentaries. Boring – I know. But one book that I would suggest would be Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell with the Rolling Stones. If you like the Stones, or rock n’ roll, it’s a great look behind the scenes.

    1. Thanks I do like the Stones. I just finished a documentary type book of the USS Indianapolis. Good!
