Careful...once you start reading Sherlock Holmes you won't want to stop! A brilliant beginning to the famously adored detective team Watson and Holmes.  Wethersfield Library

If Dr. Seuss had written a science fiction novel, I imagine it would have been pretty similar to this. It's wacky and fun and sometimes doesn't make a lot of sense...but just go with it. It's a quick read with ridiculous made-up words and phrases and creatures and worlds etc, etc, etc that make it enjoyably unique.  Wethersfield Library

Definitely read this before the movie comes out next month. The writing isn't stellar at the beginning, but it gets much better and the story is so good that you can't stop turning pages anyway. The epilogue really throws you for a loop. You'll want the sequel right away! I'd recommend this for anyone middle school and up.  Wethersfield Library

Book 1 of the Kane Chronicles. My boyfriend's kids LOVE Rick Riordan, especially his Percy Jackson series, so I saw this one and decided to give it a try...see what all the hype is about. I thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, I liked it so much that I checked out the sequel right after finishing this book. Riordan does a fabulous job of incorporating history and myth into a fun and exciting story. It is perfect for its target age group of grades 4-9, but it's a wonderful, entertaining story for anyone. Parents will have a great time reading this to/with their kids.  Wethersfield Library

Shots Fired is a collection of short stories from C.J. Box. Some of the stories have been published before but they were all new to me. A couple of the stories are based on Box's characters Joe Pickett and Nate Romanowski. Although I don't usually read short stories I am a fan of Box's books and found all the stories entertaining and enjoyable.  Wethersfield Library

This book takes me back to that experience. It is full of information and insights . It is a book to be read more than once unless you haves fabulous memory.
