Virtually on My Nightstand

A list by Haley, Programs Specialist

I absolutely adore eReaders. I have a Kindle Paperwhite and read basically every night on it. But, eBooks can get expensive! Thankfully, Mid-Columbia Libraries has a huge eBook collection available through Overdrive! You can check things out straight to your Kindle, iPad, smartphone or other gadget with your library card! This is a list of the mishmash of eBooks that I'm currently reading (or have recently read) that are on my nightstand but with just one device instead of a tower of books.

Books

I am currently on the second book in this three book bundle as of Sept. 11, 2019. I am a huge fan of Abercrombie's work. He writes great sweeping epics and has very interesting and flawed characters that you'll enjoy following along and rooting for!

This is a great beginning to an interesting sci-fi series. I really enjoyed book one, but the second and third are also fantastic. If you like interesting and strong characters, definitely check this out!

Alright, so I got the book off a Buzzfeed book article, but it's actually pretty good! I'm not that far into it, but the writing style reminds me of a watered down N.K. Jesimin.

I'm currently reading this, and it is a weird book. But, it is fascinating, especially if you have a garden or are interested in colony collapse or bees in general.

"Lair of Dreams" is the second in a series by Libba Bray set in the Roaring Twenties and follows a diverse group of people with supernatural powers. Bray writes very seductive, other-worldly psychological horror with fascinating premises.

A modern-day adventure following a washed up animator and her young son through Seattle, this story is filled with humor, personality, and feelings.

If you've recently lost a loved one (including pets), please, please read this magical realism book, but bring your Kleenex. It's weird and full of metaphors, but I could NOT put it down and read it through streaming tears.

This book is chock-full of Russian folklore, magic, and the importance of traditions.
