February Reading Review


Book Club

This month wasn’t a normal meeting.  We did a book browsing and chocolate tasting in order to get more B&N costumers interested in the Romance Book Club.  We’re hoping more people join so we can do more author events.  We’re keeping our fingers crossed.

I checked out five books this month (as well as a bunch of DVDs and CDs). I finished reading two of the books rather quickly, A Shore Thing and Marrying Daisy Bellamy.  I’m still working on Claude and Camille from last month and really couldn’t focus more attention on Fannies Last Supper and Decision Points.  I returned Fannies Last Supper with Plans to check it out again and I checked Decision Points out as an ebook and couldn’t get very far in it during my 2 week check out period.  Assholes Finish First was just checked out so I’m reading that, Tucker Max can only be taken in small doses.

1.     Fannie's last supper : re-creating one amazing meal from Fannie Farmer's 1896 cookbook by Christopher Kimball
2.     A Shore Thing by Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi
3.     Marrying Daisy Bellamy by Susan Wiggs
4.     Decision Points by Geroge W. Bush
5.     Assholes Finish First by Tucker Max


I finished five more books during this month.  I found a new series about Navy Seals by Mary Margret Daughtride and I’m waiting for the fourth book to come out soon.  I also finished two more books in the Suzanne Brockmann series.  I’m finding I have quite an addiction right now to stories about Seals. 
  • SEALed with a Kiss by Mary Margret Daughtridge
  • SEALed with a Promise by Mary Margret Daughtridge
  • SEALed with a Ring by Mary Margret Daughtridge
  • Frisco's Kid by Suzanne Brockmann
  • Everyday Average Jones by Suzanne Brockmann


I got back to reading Nora Roberts books this month.  I read Risky Business and Indulgence in Death.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

In the Hot Zone by Kevin SitesNight by Elie WieselTom Clancy's Ghost Recon by Daivd MichaelsMacbeth by ShakespearA Million Little Pieces by James FreyWolf Hall by Hilary MantelAn Inconvenient Truth by Al GoreUnder the Dome by Stephen KingLawless by Nora RobertsThe Sinatra Files by Tom KuntzThe Help by Kathryn StockettThe Dante Club by Matthew PearlFord County by John GrishamThe Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel BarberyThe Postmistress by Sarah BlakeA Beautiful Mind by Sylvia NasarHide & Seek by James PattersonA Vintage Affair by Isabel WolfGorgeous East by Robert Girardi Most of these books were ones that I either had read or wanted to read.

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
