Staff Picks: Katherine

Before I could finish asking Katherine what books she’s excited about, she had slapped two in my hand. My hand hurts, but all the better for y’all, who can now take a peak at her picks.

Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan (a young adult title)

“This is an incredibly spiritual book — about gender identity and how it shifts — a compelling look at how humans connect passionately and how human wounds and self-perception can control us. In this work, the power of love redeems. Told by those who lived with and died from HIV/AIDS — a Greek chorus of sorts — this was an intense and thought provoking read.”

 

 

 

Longbourn by Jo Baker

“Do you love Jane Austen? Do you love “Upstairs/Downstairs” or “Downton Abbey?” If you answered yes to both these questions then you will truly enjoy Longbourn. This is Pride & Prejudice meets these two awesome shows. Intelligent and engrossing fiction!”

 

 

 

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that Katherine recommends books that will keep you reading late into the night.
