It's Monday! What Are You Reading? June 25



So my plan is each Monday to update anyone who reads this on what I'm currently reading and what I may have finished in the last week.

Currently Reading:

Title: Shelter in Place
Author: Nora Roberts
Date Started: June 24

Title: I'll Be Gone in the Dark
Author: Michelle McNamara
Date Started: June 16

Date Started: January 1
Note: Roof Beam Reader Read the Bible as Literature Event

Currently Listening:

Author: Ayn Rand
Narrator: Christopher Hurt
Date Started: August 23, 2017
Note: On part 7 of 7

Finished Reading:

Title: Rock Wedding (Rock Kiss #4)
Author: Nalini Singh
Date Started: June 22
Date Finished: June 23
Stars: 4 of 5
Review: Good end to this series. I'm happy all the guys faced (are still) facing their demons but have their strong ladies beside them helping them through it all. I'm assuming it's the end since we've gotten all the band mates and the cross over with the Hard Play series.

Title: The Fliers of Gy
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
Narrator: LeVar Burton
Date Listened: June 22
Stars: 4 of 5
Review: Interesting story with biological details of the changes, so much description of the Gy changing.  Looks at how it is considered a misfortune to gain wings while other (the reader) might not originally see it that way in the context of other SF stories.

Title: Rock Redemption (Rock Kiss #3)
Author: Nalini Singh
Date Started: June 19
Date Finished: June 22
Stars: 4 of 5
Review: I started off not liking Noah, especially with the way he treated Kit, but he grew on me, he really did care for her and just had a shitty way of showing it.

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. But…

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!

The Marked Men series by Jay Crownover



Real series by Katy Evans



Vintage by Susan Gloss



I Love This Bar by Carolyn Brown

Guest Post - The Power of the Written Word

While I am recovering from the stress of writing a final paper, new author, Gerald Freeman, has written a guest post.  His new book "Kill Daddy" is available as a ebook on Amazon.

THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD VERSUS THE POWER OF THE UNSPOKEN WORD
The main objective for anyone involved in the arts is to get their message across, and everything revolves around the efficacy. Artists want to communicate with people, share ideas, passions and experiences. For many of us, the inspiration is life.

I have spent the last 20 years focusing on sculpture and writing, both mediums through which I hope to inspire and share my ideas about us and our role on this planet. I spent 10 years working on my technique in both areas, and a few years ago, I felt ready to put my work out there. I began with sculpture and have been very lucky. I have held some great exhibitions and my work has found a home in many parts of the world. Like writing, it is a gradual process and will take the time it tak…
