I Work at a Public Library
I Work at a Public Library by Gina Sheridan (Humor)
This book is hilarious. It is filled with stranger than fiction questions, occurrences that take place in a public library, maybe in Carmel? I have personally been guilty of more than one stupid question at the CCPL and I am glad to learn that librarians maintain a sense of humor. I, too, am still looking for the Margarita machine. -- Added by maxivon on 03/07/2015

Unbroken
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand (History/Biography)
It wasn't on the New York Times Best Seller list for four years for nothing. This is a powerful journey and the plot of the heroic fight for survival in a prison camp offers a deep look at heroism and the true American spirit. It can get pretty gruesome, but it is that suffering that makes the man and the book. -- Added by maxivon on 03/07/2015

Lucky Us
Lucky Us by Amy Bloom (Other Fiction)
This book is a whirlwind, with characters and plot jumping off the page everywhere, as two sisters, Eva and Iris, hurtle through life. I love that each chapter is the name of an old popular song. It has more plot twists than you can imagine and the ups and downs of these two sisters makes for some great reading on a Winter day. There are some great lines that jump out. When Eva is dismayed because she is told "Your Father says you are the smart one, Clara replies: "Oh, you can fake pretty." -- Added by maxivon on 03/07/2015

The Astronaut Wives Club
The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel (History/Biography)
I can't wait for the discussion of this book at Page Turner's.It is wonderful to take a look at the past and all the little details, clothes, the products, are great fun. I definitely recommend the book, and a lot of history recalled, but at the same time, it reads like a script for reality tv. Don't let that stop you. It's great fun. -- Added by maxivon on 03/07/2015

The Girl on the Train
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (Mystery/Suspense)
This is "can't put down" story that rolls along at top speed like a West bound train. The reader slips in and out of reality with the narrators and it is a great read and a great ride. -- Added by maxivon on 03/07/2015
