One of the most fun things about my job is getting to embrace my inner book reviewer for our Random Revelations newsletter. My most recent staff pick, The Invisible Mountain, appealed to me especially because it is right up my alley. I have loved books steeped in rich oral tradition and Latin American culture since first reading Isabel Allende’s The House of the Spirits in high school. To this day, it is still my all-time favorite book. Of course, then came Gabriel Garcia Marquez and any time I see something in a similar “magical realism” vein, I jump on it.
Be sure to check out our Library Marketing Team’s Staff Picks if you haven’t already and as a special bonus, I will send my ARC of Invisible Mountain to one lucky commentor who answers this question:
What is your all-time favorite book?
