Jenny Carr | 1 comments Evicted by Mathew Desmond. Depressing but worth reading. Could these poor living conditions and tenant injustice exist in Madison/Middleton too? Knowledge is the first step to making changes and I think there will be some interesting discussions coming out of this Go Big Read community read.

Kendall | 5 comments Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay is my most current read (although I can never just read one book at a time). Beautifully written and incredibly thought-provoking, with just the right amount of humor. The essay format makes this a super quick read, while still being poignant and powerful.

Debbie Fischer (somethingfischy) | 1 comments Outliers by Malcom Gladwell. Such a good storyteller and the themes he draws from a variety of sources... I don't know how he does it!!

Katie | 2 comments Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. I love her books, and the topics in this one are extremely relevant in our world today. Thought provoking for sure.

Kelsey I'm currently loving A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas. It's a re-imagining of Sherlock Holmes if Sherlock Holmes was in fact a woman named Charlotte Holmes. I highly recommend the audio book!

Chris Clay | 1 comments About halfway through Keith Donohue's latest novel, The Motion of Puppets. His The Stolen Child is one of my favorite books and really I enjoyed The Boy Who Drew Monsters. This new book is equally modern, dark fairy tale. Great reading material in the weeks leading up to Halloween.

David Gallay (svengalix) | 3 comments Just finished I'm Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid. Creepy, short read, especially if you are interested in unreliable narrators.

One of our librarians read that a few months ago! Such an interesting way of storytelling that really keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. The ending was definitely a surprise!
