Books We Loved in 2016: Part 1

We're a reading bunch of folks. It's not just because we work in a library, or because we work closely with other librarians, or even because we recommend a lot of books to others. Believe it or not, not all librarians like to spend time reading! MLC just happens to employ a lot of people who truly love to read. That said, we've read a lot of books during 2016 and wanted to share our favorites with you. Without further ado, here they are:

  • Uprooted by Naomi Novik
  • Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
  • Miss Jane by Brad Watson
Ally M, Information Services Director

  •  The Alienist by Caleb Carr
    "Because I enjoyed the Cinemax show The Knick I was advised to read this book. It was a great suggestion for someone who loves period based thrillers. I also read recently that it is being made into a TV series. Yippee!!!"
Lacy E, Senior Library Consultant

  • Princess Princess Ever After by Katie O'Neill
    "This is an absolutely adorable middle-grade story about two princesses going on an adventure and trying to find their happily ever after. It's SO CUTE, with beautiful artwork, and so sweet that it'll give you cavities."
  • Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
    "Don't let the size of the book scare you! Clarke has a wonderfullu unique writing style, is absolutely amazing at worldbuilding, and crafts complex characters with wonderful relationships."
Katie G, Collection Management

  • Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis
  • Fire Bound by Christine Feehan
  • Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis
Lorietha M, Library Development Administrative Assistant

  • Your Baby's First Word Will Be DADA by Jimmy Fallon and Miguel Ordóñez
  • The Residence by Kate Andersen Brower
Kelly K, Reference Librarian

So many of our staff participated and wanted to share their favorite books from 2016 that we had too many for just one post. Tomorrow we'll bring you part 2 of our favorite staff books. Until then, happy reading!
