#NewRelease Finds at the #Library on this #Podcast: #AstheWickedWatch by Tamron Hall

Welcome back, my fellow creatives! Winter is the perfect time to curl up in a blanket with a pile of books, and I can think of no better place to find those books than at the local library.

It’s all too easy to just meander over to my favorite sections, though, and 2022 is the year to try new things! So, for this series on Story Cuppings, I am only going to pick books from my library’s New Release shelf by the entrance. Those books could be of any genre, fiction or nonfiction. If it’s on that shelf, it’s game for a podcast!

Today I plucked from the New Release shelf:

As the Wicked Watch by Tamron Hall

What does a reader experience in those opening pages, and what lessons can a writer take away in studying but a few paragraphs? Let’s find out!

If you do not see the audio player above, you can access the podcast here.

On the back cover, Booklist tells us that “From the start, readers will be intrigued…” So I BETTER be intrigued! 🙂

And say, what’s on the New Release shelf at your own local library? I’d love to know!

Read on, share on, and write on, my friends!

  1. I enjoyed that! Great reading and commentary as ever Jean. The fact that the book is a mystery/crime novel set in Chicago immediately made me think of Sara Paretsky’s, V. I. Warshawski novels which I adored, especially the earlier ones. It could be in that league.

    • Oh, I bet! We have these wee little free libraries sprinkled about town, which are great places for people to take a book and leave a book in return. You can find aaaaaaaaaaaaaall sorts of things in those boxes…
