Fake Mustache - Tom Angleburger

Fake Mustache - Tom Angleburger

Lenny Flem Jr. KNOWS that it's his friend Casper robbing banks and running for president. No one, including the FBI, believes him.

Casper is disguised quite well thanks to his new suit and the Heidelberg Handlebar #7 mustache that he purchased. (Granny always insisted that Casper spend his money on something frivolous.) I don't think that granny meant for Casper to use it to take over the world.

Release date: April 1 (Appropriate)
ARC Received from publisher at ALA Midwinter

The eagerly awaited sequel to the internationally bestselling Starcrossed, Dreamless delivers with a huge emotional impact that will leave readers satisfied—and longing for more.

That's how much money I have left in my library budget to spend. No, I'm not complaining about the amount. I'm happy to have it. Spending it...that's another story.

The deadline to spend our money was February 1. Yep, that's gone. I missed it. Use it or lose it. So, now I'm in a panic to spend $907.33.

Really, it's harder than you think.

Waiting on Wednesday (37)

Insurgent - Veronica Roth
Divergent #2

One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature. - From Goodreads
