Communications scholar Marshall McLuhan believed in deciding whether or not you’ll like a book, you simply need to read Page 69.  I’ve decided to put this to the test each Friday.  I’ll provide the page and, then at the end, let you know where it’s from.  Let’s see if it works!

Do you already know what book it comes from?  Does it grab your interest and make you want to know more?  Source after the break. Continue reading “Page 69”

September Galleys

There are two big book “seasons” in library world.  The first being spring when all of the light, airy, summer reads are released.  Then there is fall…better known as “award season.”  This is when all the heavy, literary fiction debuts in hopes of making the book award cut off times.  When looking at galleys, though, you’ve probably already heard about the buzzworthy titles (Nutshell, Dollhouse, Wonder, Gentleman in Moscow) which are now circulating in ARC format to the masses.  It makes it hard to come up with a list of “under the radar” titles for you to check out.  But, I’ve given it my best shot.

Top 10 Tuesday: Top American Mafia Non-Fiction

So I pretty much hate having to give a list of “Top Faves” because it changes so regularly.  I think every comment I’ve read about this topic said the same thing, though, so this is how I know I’ve found my people 😀

 

For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday hosted by Broke and Bookish, I decided to do my Top Five American Mafia Non-fiction.  I’m cheating at only doing five but, really, after these five it all becomes a mush pile anyway (so please don’t tell on me!)

August Reads

This month was pretty busy and I spent most of my reading time buried in my Kindle.  I did manage to re-read a series that I thought I would take a minute to mention.

29038176370_643e8114d6_z

I really enjoyed the first book Queen of Someday.  I read this when it first came out back in 2014.  It was later expanded to become the Stolen Empire series.  When the second came out, I dutifully read it but found it pretty disappointing.  By the time the third was released, I had no interest in the series at all.  It started reading like news articles – the writing had turned dry and it seemed like the author just wanted to be done with it.  Pity because the characterization and plot in the first book were pretty awesome.  I went ahead and read it this month just to complete it (and because it’s too short not to finish off!)

 

Genre: Historical Fiction

Age: This is a YA title but verges on NA for some sexual content so best reserved for the older/more mature teens.

Top 10 Tuesday: Back to School
