my love for the library book sale room. Most of the times I've visited this Fall, it's been slim pickings in there. Today, we made a quick trip after school to check out Christmas in Norway for a school project, and I had a moment to stop in the room. Jackpot.
Lisa Genova's Inside The O'Briens -- It's supposed to be heartbreaking, but I am a fan of hers after Still Alice and Left Neglected so I will probably try this one eventually.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins -- Already read and enjoyed it, but I'd love to be able to lend it to others. I think my husband would like it.
Emma by Alexander McCall Smith -- I'm trying to keep track of these Austen titles by great contemporary writers. I have Trollope's Sense and Sensibility and am obviously super excited for Curtis Sittenfeld's Eligible. Emma is one of my least favorite Jane Austen books so we'll see what I think of its contemporary re-imagining. I loved Clueless, of course, so there's hope.
Elin Hilderbrand's The Rumor -- Solid novel by one of my go-to authors. Will definitely lend to friends looking for a reliable vacation read.
Judy Blume's In the Unlikely Event -- I look forward to lending this book to my mother-in-law and to owning my own copy. Maybe I can display it next to Superfudge and Summer Sisters.
Five dollars very well spent.
