I wasn’t planning to go to the library today because what I really needed to be doing was finishing up my book for book group tomorrow (I don’t think that’s going to happen) but I wanted to pick up two holds before they expired. So here’s what I got:
- Life After Life by Jill McCorkle. The book is about the lives of the residents, staff and neighbors of a retirement center. My last job I worked for a skilled nursing facility and it was tough. There were some very uplifting moments but then a lot of frustration, burn out, etc. I think working in healthcare really made an impact on me and while I’m not in healthcare any longer there are certain aspects I miss. Anyway, I think this book will be an interesting read and maybe one I can relate to on some level.
- Leaving Everything Most Loved by Jacqueline Winspear. It’s the latest Maisie Dobbs book! Enough said.
- The Start of Everything by Emily Winslow. Not one of my holds but the cover caught my attention. Set in Cambridge University this is a thriller. Now that I’m reading more of the book jacket it looks like this is the author’s second book. Hmm, I need to find out if it’s a standalone or a series before I start it.
- Wings Of Fire by Charles Todd. It’s been a couple of years since I read the first book in this series but I do remember I liked it a lot. I hate it when I wait too long to go back to a series but it’s hard to keep up with so many series I follow. Anyway, I am looking forward to this one.
Yes, I had said I was going for two holds and I walked out with four books. You know how it is. Let me know if you’ve read any of these books!
