Amee: I just finished the fourth installment in the Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith. In Lethal  White, Private detective Cormoran Strike and his partner Robin Ellacott, are hired to solve a blackmailing scheme turned murder case. All the books in the series are set in London with this particular story set in 2016 during the Olympics. Robert Galbraith is the pseudonym of J. K. Rowling. I enjoyed the fourth book. If you are interested in a new mystery series, you may want to begin with The Cukoo’s Calling. Just as in the Harry Potter series, Rowling/Galbraith does an excellent job of developing characters and building relationships. 

 

Karen: The Romanov Empress by C. W. Gortner, a novel of Tsarina Marie Feodorovna: Story of the Mother of Tsar Nicholas II.

 

Mary:  Tailspin by Sandra Brown

 

Megan:  Since Halloween is approaching my picks are focused on it.  Click Clack Boo! By Doreen  Crown.  DVD It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. My favorite!

 

Rachel:  The Hollow by Agatha Christie, Harry Potter series.

 

Susan: A Year at the Star and Sixpence by Holly Hepburn.

Staff Picks

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.

Mary:  Vendetta by Iris Johansen, The New Essentials cookbook : a modern guide to better cooking by America's Test Kitchen, Delish: 275+ amazing recipes & ideas, assorted quilting and craft b...
