Staff Book Review

Inside Out
by Maria V. Snyder, 2010

Book Description: Trella's life is consumed by her job-- testing, cleaning, and making sure the pipes in her world are working. She spends her free time exploring the forbidden Upper Levels, but Trella's solitary, peaceful life is about to be disturbed when a prophet comes and promises a better life for her people.

I was browsing our card catalog to see if Ms. Snyder (author) wrote more books and found Inside Out in our Young Adult Room. Well, I thought, let's take it home, I can read the first chapter and return the book to the library if it is boring...

Little did I know! I got hooked! The young heroine drew me into her story and I had to keep on reading and reading and reading. The ending was great- quite unexpected. And guess what! There will be a sequel in 2011. 

URSULA'S WARNING: Only take the book out on a weekend, or take it with you on vacation. You may want to check out her "grown up" books if you like soft sci-fy fantasy.

P.S. There is violence and death. The heroine gets hurt. :(

Staff Book Review

Savor the Moment (The Bride Quartet, Book 3)
by Nora Roberts, 2010

Book Description: Wedding baker Laurel McBane is surrounded by romance working at Vows wedding planning company with her best friends Parker, Emma, and Mac. But she's too low-key to appreciate all the luxuries that their clients seem to long for. What she does appreciate is a strong, intelligent man, a man just like Parker's older brother Delaney, on whom she's had a mega-crush since childhood.  
        But some infatuations last longer than others, and Laurel is convinced that the Ivy League lawyer is still out of her reach. Plus, Del is too protective of Laurel to ever cross the line with her-or so she thinks. When Laurel's quicksilver moods get the better of her-leading to an angry, hot, all-together mind-blowing kiss with Del-she'll have to quiet the doubts in her mind to turn a moment of passion into forever... 

This book is similar to her other books within the Bride Quartet series. It is predictable, but nice if you like that kind of stuff.
