“For Me Not”
By Julie Soto
Ama Torres is one of the best wedding planners in her small town. Her success is because of the five strict rules she follows. No animals, no nightclub DJ’s, no DIYing, no gazebos and never find yourself alone with any of the groomsmen. Those five rules have kept many wedding disasters from happening before they ever started. However, none of those rules can prepare her for the celebrity wedding she just booked. Somehow the A-list couple decided to pick Ama and her small business over all the others. Ama can picture the amazing wedding they are going to plan. The couple’s only strict rule is that all flowers must come from Elliot Bloom and the Bloom shop. This might be the only disaster Ama can’t prevent from occurring. Why is that a disaster? Elliot just happens to be Ama’s ex-boyfriend that she dumped when he proposed.
This romantic comedy is perfect for readers who enjoy a great plot, well-rounded characters, and lots of hijinks. You can find this book on the Libby app.
“My Roommate is a Vampire”

Cassie Greenberg is the perfect example of a struggling artist. After paying her rent late again, her landlord is kicking her out. Thus, she sets out to find an apartment that she can actually afford. On Craigslist, she finds an ad of a man looking for a roommate. The only catch is the rent is so low that he has to be a murder looking for another victim. Despite her concerns, she takes the room. Her new roommate introduces himself as Frederick J. Fitzwilliam. He only works at night, sleeps all day and appears as though he belongs in another century. All of which are things Cassie can handle. What she can’t handle is the blood bags she finds in the fridge. Apparently, her roommate is a vampire, and he needs her to teach him how to blend into the modern world.
