Written in My Own Heart's Blood

Author: Diane Gabaldon

Review by: bpolite46, Peshtigo Branch Public Library

After reading all of the eight "Outlander" books,  I found the last one to be disapointing..   Too many forgetable characters brought back from other books.   I actually found this hard to finish and after investing much time reading the first seven books in the series, I wanted...

Lethal Letters

Author: Ellery Adams

Review by: Penny, Shawano City-County Library

Having read the previous books in the Books by the Bay series, I was interested in the next installment.  It grabbed me from the beginning. Without giving much away, I was intrigued by the weddings being planned, emotional conflicts, the time capsule found and the body under the pier. The characters have evovled over time and have...

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Author: Gabrielle Zevin

Review by: dianevantassel, Appleton Public Library

I liked everthing about this book- the characters, the setting, the humor, and the heartbreak. The story of a grumpy young widower who owns a bookstore is viewed from many perspectives. As A.J. struggles to cope with the death of his wife, some strange events alter his life permanently, starting with the theft of a rare, valuable book and leading to a toddler being left behind in his store. When A.J....

Invisible City

Author: Julia Dahl

Review by: Audreyperry, Algoma Public Library

Very interesting, albeit fiction, book. I've never given much thought to the inner workings/hiding of cultures. The book was riddled with true information and terminology about the Jewish faith. A good listen.

Where'd you go Bernadette?

Author: Maria Semple

Review by: Audreyperry, Algoma Public Library

I asked a former librarian for a new book to read. She said that this was one she was going to have us read for book club, so I gave it a shot. It's like a book with ADD...it's all over the place. But, a fun, fun read.
