Furyborn by Claire Legrand: Fierce, independent women full of rage, determination, and fire. The first novel in the Empirium trilogy holds appeal for both young adult and adult readers.

Nine works of fiction and one memoir you don’t want to miss. Time to place holds on books coming in April!
Circe by Madeline Miller (fiction)
Circe follows the banished witch daughter of the Titans as she practices her powers for an inevitable conflict with one of Olympus’s most vindictive gods. I found myself pondering motherhood, mortality, and feminism. For readers of historical and mythological drama or anyone who loves a strong female lead. ~ McKelle George, Salt Lake City Public Library, Salt Lake, UT Continue reading “Library Reads: 10 Books for April”
