                                              Murder With Macaroni And Cheese
                                                                   By A.L. Herbert

This month my review is over the book "Murder with Macaroni and Cheese" by A.L. Herbert. This book is about a restaurant owner, named Mahaila who has an interest in detective work. In this book she is preparing for a class reunion. Although her high school years were not great, they were not bad either. But the class reunion means dealing with some people that she was hoping to forget. The main bully from her high school days approaches her about using her venue for the get together. As the time approaches, old feelings resurface for a lot of the reunion attendees, but for one the sense of nostalgia ends in murder. Now Mahalia feels that she must get to the end of the mystery and see who really had not let old bygones be bygones. The story started off kind of slow to me but the delicious recipes sprinkled throughout the story made me press on, lol. In the end I thoroughly enjoyed the story and I am now back tracking to read the first book, "Murder with Chicken and Waffles"...yummy! :)

                                                             Alcatraz vs. The Evil Librarians Book Review

The Alcatraz vs. The Evil Librarians series is written by the famous author Brandon Sanderson who obviously had way too much fun writing the series. Written from a first person point of view he pretends to be a boy using the author Brandon Sanderson as a cover for his books. The tone of this series was much lighter than that of the  other books that I had read by this author, as well as being his first YA series that I had read.
The person who “writes” these books is a young boy raised in a series of foster homes who has a disastrous penchant for breaking things that keeps him moving through homes and people. He has never had any contact with his parents until one day he receives a bag of….sand?
But apparently important sand, for no sooner does it appear than so do a host of people who want it, Librarians who apparently like to spread false information that keeps the world under their secret control and a group of people who live in the hidden free kingdoms who still resist their rule.  

This series was wonderful comedic relief and I would highly recommend it for anyone who like to read for fun and needs something light and amusing. The writing style was easy enough for children and witty enough for any age.

                                                                  Library Corner by Lily Marshall

Did you know that March is declared as Women's History Month? By 1986, 14 states had declared March as Women's History Month. In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women's History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9, which designated the month of March 1987 as Women's History Month. This month commemorates and encourages the study, observance, and celebration of the vital role of women in American history.
