It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 2/13/17

13 Feb

Last week started out pretty rough – and before I re-live it, I’m not going to go into all the gory detail. Just know that there were patron problems, a presentation issue, a pet turtle scare and much more! But, thankfully, that all happened Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday really turned around. Our pet turtle, Tera, is actually fine – a little diet change and a large tank and he’ll be good to go!  And now I’m going to brag, I have some of the best patrons out there – we need to double the size of our turtle tank and after having a request up on our Facebook page for no more than an hour, we got a new turtle tank and all her supplies donated to us from some awesome patrons and a great Girl Scout Troop! Thursday was a snow day and our library was closed and Friday was Friday, so after a very rocky start, the week really turned itself around!  And in the midst of all the craziness, I got an awful lot of reading done! I read:

  • Finding Perfect by Elly D. Swartz
  • The Great American Whatever  by Tim Federle
  • Paper Wishes by Lois Sepahban
  • Snow White by Matt Phelan
  • Two Naomis by Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich

I finally feel like I’m back in my reading groove after a hectic fall – I’m reading more than I have in a long time and it feels awesome.  I haven’t looked to closely at what I want to read this week, but I did put on hold:

  1. The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
  2. The Memory of Light by Francisco X. Stork
  3. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
  4. Hour of the Bees by Lindsay Eagar
  5. Wish by Barbara O’Connor

    Definitely the best patrons! And I’m so glad you loved the Great American Whatever. One of the best books I read last year I think.
