Mickey Meets The Giant
by A Walt Disney Beginning Reader

We loved it

Dead After Dark
by Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse Series

View in Library Catalog



This book follows very closely along with the first season of True Blood with the exception of the characters Tara and Jessica being absent. Like the show, features great cast of characters well drawn from the outset. The book is told in first person from Sookie's perspective, so you get an even better sense of her point of view than in the show. The audiobook is especially well done in terms of Sookie's accent, attitude, etc.

Midnight In Chernobyl
by Higginbotham Chernobyl

One of the best nonfiction books I have ever read. Reads like a thriller. Amazing research. Avoids judgment of characters in favor of making you care about them as people using thoughtful details. Makes nuclear physics accessible to the reader. A harrowing ride.

Me Talk Pretty One Day David Sedaris
by David Sedaris Me Talk Pretty One Day

View in Library Catalog



Classic book of essays covering his family life, years as struggling artist working odd jobs, and, as the title suggests, his time in France and attempts to learn the language. Witty, self-deprecating. Sedaris' audiobooks recommended to get a sense of his personality.

This is one of my daughter's absolute favorite books. She has me read this to her all the time.

My Friend Anna
by Rachel Deloache Williams

This book makes for a good read for a summer trip. You can breeze through it very quickly. I particularly recommend the audio book for hearing the author's narrative view. Well structured to draw reader into the author's anxiety/plight brought on by this friendship.
