Book Box Guesses: May 2021

It’s no secret that I’m a book box lover. Part of the fun is trying to guess the upcoming month’s books (even if I don’t subscribe). Here’s a round up of what I think will be in the upcoming month’s boxes. I’ll update this post as new themes are revealed. These posts are typically scheduled around the 15th of each month.

If you’d like to play along, drop your guesses in the comments and I’ll add them to the post! If you think I’m wrong, please leave a comment as to which book is a better fit.

Let me know if I’m missing a box you think should be added to the list.

If you work for one of the boxes below and would like to offer a discount code to my readers or a referral link, email me and I’d be happy to add it to the post. I’m open to discussing other types of partnerships as well.

I STRONGLY urge you to research a box before buying or subscribing. There’s been some shady behavior and you don’t want to get caught up in it.

Book Review: ‘Songs From The Deep’

Songs From The Deep” by Kelly Powell

Source: Unplugged Book Box

Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Fantasy

Summary:

The sea holds many secrets.

Moira Alexander has always been fascinated by the deadly sirens who lurk along the shores of her island town. Even though their haunting songs can lure anyone to a swift and watery grave, she gets as close to them as she can, playing her violin on the edge of the enchanted sea. When a young boy is found dead on the beach, the islanders assume that he’s one of the sirens’ victims. Moira isn’t so sure.

Certain that someone has framed the boy’s death as a siren attack, Moira convinces her childhood friend, the lighthouse keeper Jude Osric, to help her find the real killer, rekindling their friendship in the process. With townspeople itching to hunt the sirens down, and their own secrets threatening to unravel their fragile new alliance, Moira and Jude must race against time to stop the killer before it’s too late—for humans and sirens alike.

What’s Library Popular- February 2021

One of the most interesting things about working in a library is seeing what is or isn’t popular with ‘regular’ readers (readers who aren’t likely wrapped up in the online book community).

I was using the software we have to get some inspiration for putting together a new YA book display. I have to say these aren’t who I would have thought would have been popular (most checked out) authors for the system.

Note: I work in the biggest city in the state but we are still slowly reopening with no seating/programs. That likely influences who is checking out books & what they are reading.
