The Crossing Places by Elly GriffithsThe Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths

Welcome to the Salt marsh, a remote area near Norfolk that is not quiet earth yet not quite sea a solitary and slightly spooky place where the bones of a child have been recently discovered. Detective Harry Nelson has called on archaeologist Ruth Galloway for help with an old case he is hoping to close up. The bones turn out to be over two thousand years old which leave detective Nelson at a dead end on the case of Lucy Downey a girl missing these past ten years. Ruth begins to be drawn into the case with Nelson and finds that her knowledge in archaeology is very useful in unraveling the mysterious letters that have been showing up in relation to Detective Nelson’s case. With Nelson and Ruth now in a race to uncover what happened to Lucy as well as the other missing young girl, the case is taking Ruth in into more danger than she bargained for.

The Crossing Places is the first in this new crime series by Elly Griffiths featuring tart-tongued archaeologist Ruth Galloway. This is an interesting beginning to a series with great archaeological detail and plenty of excitement to keep readers interested.

When did I get like this? by Amy WilsonWhen Did I Get Like This?: the screamer, the worrier, the dinosaur-chicken-nugget-buyer, & other mothers I swore I’d never be by Amy Wilson

When Did I Get Like This? is the hilarious story of one mother’s struggle to shrug off the ridiculous standards of modern parenting, and remember how to enjoy her children “Over the last seven years of long days with little children, I have had many moments of joy, calm, and peaceful reverie.”
This book is about the other moments.

The Farting Dead by Stefan PetruchaThe Farting Dead by Stefan Petrucha

Mogadore Branch Library has quite a bit of Children, Teen and Adult Graphic novels to choose from.  Recently the Teen Graphic novel area received The Farting Dead by Stefan Petrucha.  It was a silly and kind of gross read.  The book is a parody on the popular television and book series “The Walking Dead”.  If you like  “The Walking Dead” series,  reading about zombies with gas problems,  and reading  Mad Magazine, which also can be found in the Mogadore teen area, you may enjoy reading this book and other books in the Papercutz Series.

The World According To Bob: Further Adventures of One Man and His Streetwise Cat by James BowenThe World According To Bob: Further Adventures of One Man and His Streetwise Cat by James Bowen

In the continuing tale of their life together, James shows the many ways in which Bob has been his protector and guardian angel through times of illness, hardship, even life-threatening danger.
