Best Spring Reads 2023

It's Springtime and that means warmer weather, longer days, and the floral blooms that are certain to bring some brightness into our lives. And with Spring comes the newest batch of books soon to be on our shelves at San Jose Public Library! There is quite a selection of brand new fiction, mystery, and historical fiction novels. And with the warmer weather, book clubs at can meet outside, for dining, book discussions and (maybe) a glass of wine at our local bistros.

Here are the selections I'm looking forward to reading!

Sisters of the Lost Nation, book cover

For the bullies who torment her, for the entitled visitors at the reservation's casino...and for the nameless, disembodied entity that stalks her every step-an ancient tribal myth come to life, one that's intent on devouring her whole. With strange and sinister happenings occurring around the casino, Anna starts to suspect that not all the horrors on the reservation are old. As girls begin to go missing and the tribe scrambles to find answers, Anna struggles with her place on the rez, desperately searching for the key she's sure lies in the legends of her tribe's past. When Anna's own little sister also disappears, she'll do anything to bring Grace home. But the demons plaguing the reservation-both old and new-are strong, and sometimes, it's the stories that never get told that are the most important."
