Best of Our Blogs: November 16, 2018

Need a healthy escape from those upcoming holiday parties and events? Me too. That’s why I love the library. It gives me the opportunity to read about a myriad of topics in different genres. It’s the most perfect place to feed my hunger to learn.

There are a few books I’m loving right now. Where the Watermelons Grow is a middle grade novel by Cindy Baldwin on how a twelve-year-old struggles to accept her mother’s mental illness. I also love Ilana Jacqueline’s Surviving and Thriving with an Invisible Chronic Illness.

Books have always been friends that inspire, support and entertain me. What’s on your fall reading list?
