What We Did on Our Summer Vacation

(We read, of course!)
Now that the librarians have all had some time off we can report back to you that we have read some great books this summer.  From “bodice rippers” to biographies, here are just a few of the Librarians Choice:  Best Vacation Books.

If a romantic historical mystery is what you crave, then The Dark Enquiry, the sixth installment of the Miss Julia Grey series by Deanna Raybourn should satisfy.  If you haven't read any of this series be sure to begin at the beginning with Silent in the Grave 

If you can’t get enough Tina Fey, Bossy Pants should  hold you over until a new season of 30 Rock.  Be sure to grab the book on CD, read by the author, if you have a long car ride, but do remember, if there are little ears in the car, this is Tina Fey uncensored! 
Fans of Jennifer Egan’s first novel, The Invisible Circus will enjoy Sister a first novel by Rosamund Lupton in which a young woman is compelled to unravel the mystery surrounding her sister’s death.
If you need a cure for yoga class performance anxiety check out Poser: My Life in Twenty-three Yoga Poses by Claire Dederer.  Dederer, a young mother with a bad back, breaks a long standing personal rule to never enter a room that has prayer flags hanging from the ceiling in a last ditch effort to solve her back problems and gets hooked on yoga.  This ridiculously funny book, about the perils of postures and parenting, will have you laughing even if you have not done either.
