My reading is like a run-on sentence. One book leads me to another, to another and another. On the rare occasions when I can’t find ‘something good,’ I’m frantic. That’s when I ask a Librarian. Good idea, huh.

Plymouth Library's Comments    
Cover ArtSunset Boulevard [videorecording]
Sunset Boulevard is not a book. But it is available at the library, so I feel it is worthy to add to the list. Sunset Boulevard is about Joe Gillis, a man who goes to Hollywood trying to make it as a screen-writer. We start out with some people trying to reposess his car. To escape them, he pulls into the driveway of a crumbling mansion to find the equally crumbling Norma Desmond, star of the silent films. She coerces Joe to edit a film she has written, which promises to be her grand return to film. Joe, short on cash and options, stays on. The story is both darkly comical and deeply tragic. Norma Desmond has cracked in her stardom and then her isolation. Joe struggles underneath the weight of Hollywood indifference. Great movie, classic of the time and well worth watching.   posted Apr 17, 2014 at 6:49PM

Cover ArtEtiquette & espionage
by Carriger, Gail
Gail Carriger fleshes out the world of Steampunk London in this semi-prequel to the Soulless Series. Etiquette and Espionage is book one in the Finishing School Series, and we follow around 14-year-old Sophronia as she learns how to sneak, poison, faint, and above all execute a proper curtsy. At the Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality Sophorinia uses all of her wits to find her place and the tangled web of conspiracies and gossip while still getting along with her new classmates. Fans of the Soulless series will appreciate the glimpses of well-beloved characters, and new readers will enjoy the introduction to a fabulous world. This book is aimed at a teen audience, but could easily be enjoyed by people of all ages.   posted Mar 17, 2014 at 4:26PM

Cover ArtThe fault in our stars
by Green, John, 1977-
Are you a fan of bawling your eyes out? Then this is absolutely a book for you. The Fault in our Stars follows 16-year-old Hazel Grace and her trials and tribulations as a cancer patient. She meets cute Augustus, who lost his leg to cancer, and the two fall in love. Despite being about teenagers with cancer, and it never flinches away from how much it sucks for our protaganist to have cancer, the book is surprisingly upbeat. Hazel Grace has a wry, sometimes sarcastic sense of humor and the book never feels treacly or preachy.   posted Jan 29, 2014 at 7:59PM
