It Must Be Good
All it takes for a book to become popular is a meer mention, a whisper, and some long forgotten tome begins to fly off the shelf. In this new segment we will be looking at the top requested items in the library; if people are waiting for it, it must be good!
With 12 reservations, this month’s most reserved item is:
Last Chance Cafe by Liz Byrski.
“With aching empathy, Liz Byrski assembles a fallible cast of characters who are asking the questions we ask ourselves. What does it mean to grow older? Are we brave enough to free ourselves from the pressure to stay young? And is there ever a stage in life when we can just be ourselves?” – from publishers website.
In Second place with 8 reservations is:
Cloudstreet by Tim Winton
“Cloudstreet is a novel by Australian writer Tim Winton. It chronicles the lives of two working class Australian families who come to live together at One Cloud Street, in a suburb of Perth, over a period of twenty years, 1943 – 1963. It was the recipient of a Miles Franklin Award in 1992.” – from Wikipedia.
In third place with 7 reservations is:
Fallen by Karin Slaughter
“There’s no police training stronger than a cop’s instinct. Faith Mitchell’s mother isn’t answering her phone. Her front door is open. There’s a bloodstain above the knob. Her infant daughter is hidden in a shed behind the house. All that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations taught Faith Mitchell goes out the window when she charges into her mother’s house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room. She sees a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn’t see is her mother. . . .” – from publishers website.
