Today at TAB we looked at some of the nominated titles that we currently have in our collection. Which ones looked interesting? Illuminae, a giant book “written” in documents and emails and text messages. The Witch Hunter, about a witch assassin in 16th century England who is framed for being a witch herself. The Game of Love and Death, about an interracial couple in the 1920s who are pawns in a giant game played by Love and Death. And I really want to read Six of Crows, but it’s been checked out so often that it’s never on the shelf. A good problem to have. STAY GOLD – Lizzy
