I wish I could say more was happening in the library front, but I’ve been busy. Just the same, here are the books that have had my attention lately.


The Magicians
This was described to me as “Harry Potter for grown-ups.” I’m not one for the whole fantasy epic thing (sorry! I know so many of you are!), but I’ve enjoyed the character development and found this one really easy to get swept into.


The Thirteenth Tale
This was recommended by Alyssa, and shortly after, kindly sent over by her. Another book that I casual glance of the back cover made me wonder if I’d be interested, it’s a little bit of mystery and intrigue which always pairs well with a cup of tea and snuggly cat.

Manhood for Amateurs: The Pleasures and Regrets of a Husband, Father, and Son
This was a Christmas present that I had forgotten I’d owned! I stinkin’ love Ayelet Waldmen, so sure. Why not give her husband a try? I’m anxious for Josh to read this next. Not because he needs to, but because he’s passionate about raising amazing men the way I’m passionate about raising amazing women.


Stop Snoring, Bernard!
This one is less for me and more for my son (although I’m probably enjoying it just as much). You may remember that I recommended this in my Christmas guide. I had known about the Philadelphia One Book, One City reading selections for adults, but noticed this one listed on the wall at the library as a selection for kids. The author is one of my favorite illustrators- not just because of his awesome work, but also because he kindly and generously replied to emails from a stranger asking for professional advice. (ahem) While you’re at it, go checkout the rest of his work.
