Our favorite reads in Winter 2022
HML’s library staff share their favorite book read recently.
Brittany - Library Director - The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
Steve - Children's Librarian - Bea Wolf, by Zach Weinersmith & Boulet
Lindsey - Adult & Tech Services - The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green
"The Anthropocene is the current geological age, in which human activity has profoundly shaped the planet and its biodiversity."
Okay, this book is fun. Green takes a thing, and writes an essay/memoir followed by giving that thing a rating out of 5 stars. Canada geese get 2 stars while Diet Dr. Pepper gets 4 stars. (spoiler alert)
Janel - Library Professional - M is for Monster, by Talia Dutton
Unique and refreshing retelling of the Frankenstein mythos!
Patty - Programming & Circulation - The Winter People, by Jennifer McMahon
Lizzy - Library Page - The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands
The entire series is one of my favorites! The apothecary solves a murder in a Victorian historical setting.
Jaylin - Library Page - Anne of Greenville by Mariko Tamaki
This is the story of how I became Anne of Greenville. It’s also the story of how I found my true true, and how I needed to maybe come to Greenville, of all places, to make that happen.
