Dylan’s pick for October is Pages and Co: The Book Wanderers by Anna James.
Every now and then, a middle grade book truly pulls me in, and this is one of those gems.
When 11 year old Tilly sees book characters walking around the bookstore her grandparents own, it is just the beginning of strange occurrences. It isn’t until she enters the books herself that she uncovers family secrets, danger develops, and the true magic of literature changes her life forever.
Gabriella’s pick for October is Next Level Basic by Stassi Schroeder.
If you’ve seen any of my other staff picks, I’m sure you’re just as surprised as I am that I read this–and what’s more, that I really enjoyed it! I’ve never watched Vanderpump Rules, so the appeal of this book to me was Stassi’s dedication to living her best life, enthusiastically embracing the things she loves, and how she wants you to do the same. So by picking this up and loving it, I’m living my NLB life, and it feels good!

If you’re reading along with WCMY, here’s our book for discussion in October!
When she stumbles across the ad, she’s looking for something else completely. But it seems like too good an opportunity to miss—a live-in nannying post, with a staggeringly generous salary. And when Rowan Caine arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is smitten—by the luxurious “smart” home fitted out with all modern conveniences, by the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and by this picture-perfect family.
What she doesn’t know is that she’s stepping into a nightmare—one that will end with a child dead and herself in prison awaiting trial for murder.
Writing to her lawyer from prison, she struggles to explain the unravelling events that led to her incarceration. It wasn’t just the constant surveillance from the cameras installed around the house, or the malfunctioning technology that woke the household with booming music, or turned the lights off at the worst possible time. It wasn’t just the girls, who turned out to be a far cry from the immaculately behaved model children she met at her interview. It wasn’t even the way she was left alone for weeks at a time, with no adults around apart from the enigmatic handyman, Jack Grant.
It was everything.
She knows she’s made mistakes. She admits that she lied to obtain the post, and that her behavior toward the children wasn’t always ideal. She’s not innocent, by any means. But, she maintains, she’s not guilty—at least not of murder. Which means someone else is.
