Staff Picks - Marilyn

 
For me, a day that I don’t read is a cryin’ shame of a day! It’s as necessary as breathing for me. And since I’m curious about nearly everything, the daily quest for the newest, next beauty is always dangling as a shiny promise just around the corner. Currently I’m excited about “big fiction” - grand, overarching novels; science books about virology and disease; biographies and kids books of all ages.

Krysta, a precocious little girl, is unruly and troubled as she processes her mother's suicide. Schooled in Grimm's fairy tales, her life becomes a fairy tale filled with elusive beauty and deadly trials. A Holocaust tale that unerringly bites into the edges of darkness and peril. Sometimes I read a book that shimmers in a special way. This is that book for me.
