This is the last week to join our special prize drawing for the adult summer reading program. Please stop by and fill out a review card. You’ll be entered in a drawing for a Trader Joe’s gift card!

Last week’s entrants had some good recommendations:

Cathy liked Agatha Christie’s The Body in the Library writing “Wonderful book! Nice plot, several twists, and really funny.” Christie is always great, but really! That’s a bit of an unfortunate title for us here at the Castro Valley Library 😉

Regina gave an excellent review to Wonder by R.J. Palacio. She writes the book is a “well-written and inspiring story of perseverance and ‘not judging a book by its cover.’ The strength of character is amazing and truly shows love conquers all.” Wonder was written for children but many adult readers love this book!

Natasha is recommending Song of the Exile by Kiana Davenport and shares that is a “well-written descriptive book depicting family and romantic relationships before, during, and after World War II in Hawaii. There are grim and graphic descriptions of the horrors of being a ‘comfort girl’ abused by troops.”

Debra gave a good review to Left Neglected by Lisa Genova. The book is about a woman who has a traumatic brain injury. Debra says it’s an “interesting and engaging story about a little known condition and how it affected the character and her family. There are some good lessons to learn.”
