A Bookish Surprise

My daughter volunteers her time at our public library for a youth programme that entourages young people to write. Last year my daughter’s work was published in their magazine and now that she has finished high school, she wants to help encourage others who are on the journey she took. At her last meeting, the librarian offered some ARCs to the volunteers, ARCs that had been given to the librarians by the publishing houses to help them choose relevant books for the library members. My daughter came home with a few galleys of books I am interested in reading.

One of them is titled Five Feet Apart. I have read good things about this story on social media and I look forward to reading it.

Have you recently received a bookish surprise?

  1. That’s so cool! I just shared my Wednesday Bookmobile which highlighted a series of crime thrillers set in the south of France, so lots of food and wine involved!


      1. A won who buys an old building and opens the only book shop the town has had. She is up against a lot of forces and her gumption is amazing. The characters are so interesting and well developed
