March 2022 Staff and Patron Picks

Amee: The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabreille Zevin

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry was the Albe’s Books pick for February. Part mystery,

part love story, but wholly a quick, enjoyable read. A. J. Fikry is a curmudgeonly

widower whose life is turned upside down when he meets Maya. Give it a chance,

you won’t be disappointed.


The Accomplice by Lisa Lutz

Owen and Luna have been best friends since college. When Owen is under suspicion for his wife’s murder, the police question what Luna knows and if she is an accomplice. This is an excellent psychological thriller with good twists and turns. Lutz intertwines Owen and Luna’s past with the present story.


Dawn: The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs by Tristen Gooley

The writer shares over 850 tips to forecasting, tracking and more. This resource book explains what the land, sun, moon, stars, plants, animals and clouds can reveal.


The Choice: Embrace the Possible by Dr. Edith Eva Eger

Dr. Eger is one of the last remaining Holocaust survivors. This memoir tells her

unforgettable story of survival.


Karen: Re-watching Game of Thrones

If you haven’t seen this, it is a great winter binge-watch.


Mary: The Maid by Nita Prose

This is a cozy mystery. Molly is a maid in a boutique hotel. She struggles with social skills and misinterprets the intentions of others. While cleaning a room, she discovers

a regular guest dead in his bed. This leads to a series of events and misunderstandings that causes the police to mistakenly accuse Molly of the crime.


Megan: Off-Limits by Helen Yoon

Dad’s office is off-limits—which only makes it more intriguing to his curious young

daughter. As soon as she sees an opening, she sneaks in to have a look around. After all, there’s no harm in just looking, right? What she discovers is a magical wonderland of sticky tape, paper clips that make glorious strands, and a kaleidoscopic array of sticky notes. Who could possibly resist playing with those? -Amazon


Heather: If You Ask Me by Betty White

I started this book before she died. There is nothing this gal can’t do! It’s an easy to read book that tells hilarious stories about her glorious life.


Kelley, Library Patron: The Last to See Me by M Dressler 

Over one hundred years ago, Emma Rose Finnis was born and died in the remote northern California town she now haunts.  If you are looking for something a little different to read, I would recommend this book. I really enjoyed reading it; it’s written from the perspective of the ghost, and the hunter who is hired to clean the house she haunts.
