You know that book. The one everyone wants to get their hands on… The one that is guaranteed to be a great read… The one that will be the cause of some sleepless nights… Well, why not join the masses and see what everyone is talking about? Here are some of the hottest titles in the library at the moment.
THE MISTRESS By Danielle Steel
NIGHT SCHOOL by Lee Child
THE WHISTLER by John Grisham
NEVER NEVER by James Patterson and Candice Fox
FEVERSONG by Karen Marie Moning
RIGHT BEHIND YOU by Lisa Gardner
A MAN CALLED OVE by Fredrik Backman
THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD by Colson Whitehead
While it's not as easy for authors to become famous at a young age as it is for say, pop singers, they can still create a masterpiece (or two, or three). So lets celebrate these 'young' writing geniouses and check out one (or more) of their books.
The only issue with this challenge comes from if we are we looking at writers currently under 30, or authors who were under 30 when they wrote their first book but are well over 30 (or…dead) now? We say that’s up to your readerly discretion.
AVE TEEN: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
BOI FICTION: The People of Forever are not Affraid by Shani Boianjiu
BRO CLASSIC: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
BRO SF FANTASY: Red Rising by Pierce Brown
HIN TEEN: The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton
Comment below and let us know what 'young' author you found.
Welcome, one and all, to a brand new year of reading – so many books, so little time…
But we’re going to give it our very best shot, starting 4pm this Friday, February 10th, at Te Aroha Library, when we meet to chew the fat and compare notes over our Janet Evanovich holiday reading (and anything else you ‘ve been reading and want to recommend/vent about!)
When you’re here, take a look at the library’s ‘2017 Reading Challenge’ – a bunch of new ideas to get you reading all sorts of books you might never have come across before. There are details on the libraries’ Facebook page and right here on our blog too.
As if that weren’t enough… February sees the launch of our ‘Blind Date with a Book’ promotion – more details online and in person on Friday!
Happy reading, and a happy new year!
To celebrate Library Lovers' Day (and Valentines Day), the library is playing matchmaker!
Going out on a blind date is a lot like opening up a new book—you never know what kind of experience you are going to have.
So drop by your local library, select your “date” from the display of specially wrapped books, bring it to the counter and then unwrap.
