The Songbird by Marcia Willett ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

This is a sweet, easy to read book about a family in rural England. It's not a family because of the blood ties of some of the members but a family of people from different parts of life that live in a small compound and love and take care of each other. The descriptions of the English countryside are so beautiful, that you feel like you are there enjoying the scenery and relaxing in the lifestyle of a small town.

The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted by Robert Hillman ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

I was drawn to this book for a few reasons - mostly because it is different from what I normally read. Since reading Picnic at Hanging Rock I've wanted to read more Australian literature. The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted is set in Australia and is by an Australian author. I also wanted to read different time periods since I mostly stick to the present day, 1920s, and 1940s. This novel takes place in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The Library of Lost and Found by @PhaedraPatrick ~ a @HarlequinBooks Review

by Susan Roberts

I love books about libraries and this was a great book about libraries and a librarian. There were references sprinkled throughout this book about current novels which I always think is a lot of fun. Even though the main character of this book is in her 40s, I would classify this as a coming of age story - you're never too old to grow up.

Books and a Movie: The Terror and I Am Legend

by Alison DeLuca

The Terror by Dan Simmons is a historical horror novel. Much like The Hunger, which I reviewed here, Terror's plot centers on true events that were terrifying on their own. And, like Hunger, the author has added a supernatural element.

An Unexpected Escapade by Kandi J. Wyatt ~ a Review

by MK French

Eighth grade brings with it a lot of problems: homework, reading for school, chores, and a new student named Karlie in the classroom. Myrtle Beach had some strange events the summer before, but Will won't discuss it with Ana or her best friend Daisy. They soon have a secret of their own when a unicorn shows up. Winston, the NSA Special Division officer is still present and will be investigating.
