Staff Picks

We always had a display of "Staff Picks" in our Borders.  These were books, videos or music that we loved and hoped to share with our customers.  Now, we're taking the section virtual.  In our new weekly, "Staff Picks" feature we share what we're reading and loving with you this week! 

Alan is "in Stephen Hunter's world right now. I just finished his "Soft Target," and am now reading his "Dead Zone." Unfortunately I'm reading them out of order, but I'm okay with it."

Jess B. gives a thumbs up to the vampire saga "Thirst" by Christopher Pike. Albert recommended it to her sometime ago and she finally checked it out.  She loves vampire Alisa's internal struggles. 


Naomi is re-reading John Dickinson's "Cup of the World" for the third time. She loves this book especially the world-building and how it has "dream-like qualities to it.

Rachel finally picked up the children's classic "The Phantom Tollbooth," by Norton Juster.  Her only regret is not reading it when she was younger as she quickly fell in love with this book and can't wait to pass it on to kids. 

Rebecca just finished reading "Dark Triumph" by Robin LaFevers. It's the second book in the "His Fair Assassins" series and it was wonderful. She loved the way the author blends historical fiction with a touch of fantasy and romance  She finds the character, Sybella particularly fascinating and she didn't want to put it down. 

Stacey is re-reading the "Harry Potter" series which has become a Spring/Summer tradition for her.   

Finally, I devoured the forthcoming "Accused," by Lisa Scottoline.  I was lucky enough to get the ARC at Book Expo America last week.  The book won't be released in October so until then I highly recommend Lisa's other novels especially my favorites in her "Rosato & Associates" series, "Moment of Truth," and "Courting Trouble."   
What good books have you read lately?  Have you read any of ours?  Check back next week for more "Staff Picks" and be sure to share your picks with us!
