In a reading slump? Don’t know what to read next? You’re at the right place!
These titles have been recommended by Oceanside Library patrons who have been attending our Page Turners Book Chat. This program meets once a month as a place for bookworms to recommend new books to each other. It is not only a great place to make a new ‘to-be read’ list, but a place to make new friends and chat. All are welcome to join!
Page Turners will be meeting this month on Thursday, March 23rd at 2:30PM.
This is a list of titles that have been brought up multiple times at Page Turners because of how much everyone adored them:
