The Prophet (  graveyard  Queen) Amanda  Stevens (klb)  3rd in  the series – not  a great place to  start – gothic,ghosts, New Orleans, mystery.   It  was  good,  but starting in  the middle  wasn’t wonderful.   not  sure  if  I  will go  back  and read  the first ones. this is becoming an annoying problem – I  need a blurb at the beginning of  each ebook – so I don’t  read in  the middle  of  the series  first.

  Rex  Libris James  Turner (lb)   Graphic  Novel.   our  square jawed , square-bodied  librarian  take on  ignorance  and darkness while tracking down  overdue library  books all over  the universe.  Fun

Battlefield J. F. Jenkins (KLB) YA  3 unlikely  teens have powers that help  them fight a battle among  aliens  that  have chosen earth as  their  next battlefield.   compelling  ,interesting characters, enough  well placed  twist – most of  which I’ve seen coming.  some stiff dialog – but mostly  between  the aliens – so  maybe  it  is on purpose.

10th  anniversary  Jame Patterson ( lb) 10th  in  the women’s  murder club.  quite enjoyable.  and once  I  started  reading it – it  made  no difference that  it was a  real book rather  than a kindle  format – I  just  have to  remember to bring it  back.

control J.  F.  Jenkins(KB)  2nd in  the series.  I  had to  buy  this one because it  was not in kindle format at  the library (?!) . Good,  but I’m not  ready  to look for  the third in  the series (  which  might not  exsist  yet)

The Melancholy  of Haruchi  Suzumiya Nagaru Tanigawa(lb) YA  not sure I  can  explain  this one . Told from  the view of  a 15 yr old  boy ( which  is  important) .  really  fun.  very  bizzare,and parts of it I  found highly  offensive but  that  sort of gets explained so  I  can deal  with  it.   Sort of.  !st in a series

6  so  far  for  October

    I just finished Bastard Out of Carolina. I’ve decided I need to read at least one banned book a year. It was very well written.
