Maintaining a solid grip on patrons at the Downtown Library, The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave continues to be the top circulating adult fiction book for the sixth month in a row. Patrons at Ladd Library have renewed interest in the 2018 release Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens and brought it to the top spot.
Another 2018 release became the top circulating nonfiction title for Downtown patrons with renewed interest in Michelle Obama’s Becoming. Patrons at Ladd were excited about The Practical Witch’s Spell Book by Cerridwen Greenleaf and made that their top title, also a 2018 release.
The multi-award-winning The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie has maintained popularity since its 2007 release despite regular challenges nation wide. It’s maintained popularity with patrons Downtown and is the top circulating young adult fiction book. The top Ladd title went to Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys.
With regards to popular children’s fiction titles, it’s really only a competition between books of the well-loved “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series by Jeff Kinney. The top title Downtown was The Deep End (the 15th book in the series) and the top pick at Ladd was Dog Days (the 4th installment).
