LIBRARIAN CHAT-update 11/26/2019
11/26/2019 - I have taken a short break to read an adult series. Have a great Thanksgiving.

10/29/2019 - Finished two books last week, "House of Salt and Sorrows" by Erin A. Craig and "Run, Hide, Fight Back" by April Henry. One is fantasy, the other is realistic fiction.

"House of Salt and Sorrows" takes the story of the 12 Dancing Princesses and puts in a great cursed by the gods plot twist. The story is set on a remote island kingdom were the god of the sea, Pontus, is worshiped. Their mother died shortly after the youngest princess was born and since then, one by one, the princesses have been dying, drowned in a tub, fell off a cliff, died from the plague, fell off the library ladder. Annaleigh, now second in line to the thrown, is wondering if the family is really cursed or if someone is killing her sisters. Determined to find out, she starts looking into the life of the latest sister to die, Eulalia only to discover more questions than answers.

"Run, Hide, Fight Back" is another fantastic book by April Henry! Teenagers Miranda Nash, Cole Bond, Javier Ramirez, Parker Gray, Amina Abdi, and Grace Busby are all in the Fairgate Mall when a group of people start shooting into the food court. April Henry has given each teen has their own background story that influences the way they react during the attack. Will the teens pick the right time to run, hide, and fight back? Will they survive or will they end up victims? Definitely a book worth reading.
