Friday Fiction

Most Fridays we feature a fiction title that is usually anything pulp, odd covers, odd titles and anything else worth discussing! These are NOT necessarily awful.

Secret Librarian Wishes

The Librarian’s Secret Wish
Grace
2000

I didn’t realize that as a profession we are more prone to secrets than the rest of the working world.  From yesterday’s secret scandal to today’s secret wish.   As we read on the inside flap, our smart girl librarian Claire knows all about sex and romance from books.  (I totally want to see her pathfinder on this subject!)  Again, we have lovely library themed cover art and of course our librarian heroine has a bun in her hair. As a public librarian for lo these many years,  I also have secret (and not so secret) wishes:

-That well-meaning people would not say to me “it must be fun to get paid to read all day”

-I also wish that you would see the irony of using the library to help you copy your Tea Party flyers.

-I also wish you wouldn’t ask me which Facebook picture is the right amount of “slutty”.

-I wish librarians were paid millions of dollars.

-I wish I had an unlimited budget.

Never a dull moment in the world of library work….

Enjoy!

The Librarian’s Secret Scandal

The Librarian’s Secret Scandal
Morey
2010

Bad girl turns responsible librarian!  Lily is flirting with danger and now Sheriff Wes Colton is getting involved. Gossip is everywhere.  Just so you know, I just purchased (at retail!) this myself and will donate it to the library after I am done savoring all the “good parts”.  I wish the cover art had more “library” to it, but at least our heroine on the cover is not wearing glasses or has her hair in a bun.  I love the description of “earthy beauty”.

Hope all you bad girl librarians run out and request a copy asap!

Naughty Librarian

What the Librarian Did coverWhat the Librarian Did
Bliss
2010

My oh my! I am dying to know what the librarian “did”!  What shame is she hiding?  Extending computer time to rogue patrons? Did she forget a subfield delimiter? Bun too tight? I am sure the crimes are horrible, like that awful blouse she is wearing.  Good thing that Bad Boy Devin is there “checking her out”.  Good thing for Rachel, after a hard day answering reference questions, un-jamming printers, tossing out crazies, and removing God-knows-what from the book drop, she is probably ready for some hot steamy romance.

Enjoy!
