Amee: This month was a good reading month for me. I read Charlaine Harris’ new book An Easy Death.
It is a news series, part western, part fantasy, and set in the world very different from our own.
I also read Michael Connelly’s new book, Dark Sacred Night. In this book, Connelly combines his famous
longtime character Harry Bosch with his newest series main character, Renee Ballard to create an engrossing police procedural mystery. And last but not least, I am listening to The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins through the Ohio Digital Library. I loved reading the series and of course, enjoyed watching the movies, but listening to the book is just as engaging.
Karen: Madeline Finn and the Library Dog by Lisa Papp, it’s adorable and sweet. Far cry from the book I read last month, on poison.
