Staff Picks: Guilty Pleasures

We all have our guilty pleasures. Take a look at some of ours.

Click on the book covers below to view our suggestions in our catalog.

“The Alibi Man” byย Tami Hoag

“I think she started out as a romance writer, and I don’t really like any of those books. But, she wrote “The Alibi Man” and “Dark Horse,” both of which are murder mysteries. Super easy reads.”
– Kiki Dreyer Burke, public relations manager

“The Royal We”
byย Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

“Basically, this is just “chick lit” loosely based on Will and Kate’s famous royal relationship. It’s so light and delightfully fluffy, and I loved every second of it.”
– Nina Frondorf, children’s services programmer, Newport Branch

“The Secret History”ย by Donna Tartt

“I love the New England Ivy College setting, and the exquisite character development in this book. Plus, it’s just a really good story.”
– JC Morgan, director

“Original Sin” by P.D. James

“These are centered around macabre murders.”
– Dawna Haupt, library accountant

“Origin” by Dan Brown

“Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: A Harvard symbology professor is thrust into a fast-paced adventure in which he has to gather clues with the help of a smart, beautiful partner (plus, as and added bonus in “Origin,” an A.I. friend) in a fascinating part of the world to unlocks a revolutionary discovery about life, religion and science with a totally unpredictable twist at the end. Rinse and repeat. Needless to say, I’m a sucker for it.”
– Jim Pleshinger, PR specialist

“The Charley Davidson” series by Darynda Jones

“Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and a full-time grim reaper. In the first novel, she is trying to figure out the identity of the man in the black cloak who has followed and protected her since birth.”
– Cassie Fischer, information services assistant, Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch
