Book suggestions for our next vote...

Before I post our next online vote I wanted to open it up again for more suggestions.  Sarah and I are going to keep a few of the front runners on the ballot but we're always looking for new choices from the group.  So, please log in and comment on any book you want us to add.  I will post the online vote on Monday.

As always, hope to see you in our library someday soon,
Jan

  1. I'm adding Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern to the vote. My sister and Stacy from Barnes & Noble loved The Night Circus and Janet Evanovich is always good. Wicked Appetite is the first book in a new series.

  4. The Night Circus has been suggested to us a lot lately. I've heard only good things about it, mostly that it's hard to put down and you won't want it to end!

    P.S. I LOVE the cover of the French Gardener. I will take a look at the reviews on this one!

    1. This is Sarah's sister. I finished The Night Circus a couple of weeks ago. I really enjoyed it. I think that it would be a good choice for your book group. It has a bit of magic...and a romance...what could be better? I did not want the book to end!

    2. Deb- We have put the "Night Circus" on the voting list for April's reads. I will make sure that I give your input when we talk about the possible books at the next meeting. ~Sarah

  5. My I am about half way through "The Hunger Games" and I only started it last night. Certainly and addicting read. My husband is also reading the series. He was only suppose to read the first book to help tutor a student. He never reads fiction and he stayed up until 1 AM read "The Hunger Games" the other night. And then picked up the second in the series yesterday and is already halfway through. ~Sarah

  6. I just received a suggestion via email from Alma Katsu, the author of Taker. Her book sounds PERFECT for our group so I'm adding it to our list. It's been compared a lot to the early work of Anne Rice, but doesn't have traditional horror characters like vampires or werewolves. It was chosen by Booklist as one of the top ten debut novels of 2011.

    I wasn't able to post this comment before the next vote went up, but I thought I'd leave it anyway, maybe for next time.

    Anne Rice has just published a new werewolf novel, The Wolf Gift. Have you heard anything about it? Apparently, she went back to her "gothic" roots, but without the preachy tone she'd adopted of late. Evidently there's a good vs. evil element running through it, so it probably does touch on issues of morality and spirituality, yet it's not a full-on religious book like the kind she'd been writing. It also has a contemporary northern California setting.

    I'm officially intrigued.
