Staff Pick - Rose and Thorn

Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.

We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.

Rose and Thorn [ebook] by Sarah Prineas

This e-book found on Overdrive is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty where a wicked Godmother likes to trap unsuspecting people into her web of a story. Once in the story, the people become the characters and loose their own will. In this book there are some colorful and fun as well as complex people. And of course there is a “Beauty” and a “Prince”. There is interesting world building and lots of plot twists. And there is a beautiful and subtle romance that is slow to build. If you like fairy tales retold or a nice, gentle romance you will like this book.

If Rose and Thorn interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
