LibraryReads List May 2017

by Marina

May is Get Caught Reading Month! LibraryReads titles for May are here! There has to be a connection somewhere . . . .

Obviously, I’m more than happy to get caught reading. Duh! I work in a library. Result: I always have more books than the time to read them. Which means I try and squeeze in reading whenever I can. Hence, I’m always getting caught.

And May’s list is only going to add to my (virtual) pile. Yeah, I’m one of those OverDrive converts that has “stacks” of books on my tablet. I’m really looking forward to several of these books, especially the one by Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Now, I’m nowhere near being an astrophysicist (who is?) but he makes it so fun and approachable.

And, no judging, but I’ve never read anything by Jane Austen (seen a couple of movies, though). The Jane Austen Project sounds like it might make its way onto my pile–hello, time travel!

Anyway, enough about me–let’s get to the list! The book with the most votes is Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. As for the rest of them . . . we’ll try something new. Pictures!

 

How about you? Do any of the books on this list intrigue you enough to place a hold?

  1. I still can’t get over the terrible photoshop job of White Hot. I read, and really enjoyed The Jane Austen Project. Hearing good things about Eleanor Oliphant, and will probably read Radium Girls eventually, and am on the wait list for the deGrasse Tyson.

      Jackie, I just finished listening to Astrophysics for People in a Hurry and while Neil deGrasse Tyson is an excellent narrator I found my mind wandering through most of the audio. I came to the conclusion that astrophysics is not necessarily a subject I focus on to read about. I do enjoy his television appearances, though.

  2. […] keeping with the new format introduced last month we’ve got the book with the highest number of votes in the first spot–Magpie Murders by […]
