When You Can’t Get Enough of ‘It’

It has come to my attention that some of you out there are spending your hard earned money to watch a movie about a clown terrorizing small children. As someone who has clowns at the top of the list of things that creep me out, I cannot begin to fathom why you would voluntarily do such a thing.

However, as a librarian, I know that once you see the movie It, you’ll want to read the book, and once you read the book, you’ll want more books that offer a similarly terrifying reading experience, so I have taken one for the team and compiled a list for you brave readers.


Wives and Daughters

When you order as many books as we do, you begin to notice trends in popularity of subject matter, cover design, and the like. The trend we’re focusing on today is the title scheme of The [Insert Profession Here]’s Wife/Daughter. While it seems a shame that these women seem to take a backseat role in the title of the books in which they star, the trend doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon.

The men these women are related to have chosen a wide range of career paths. They might be politicians . . .

Or  in the military . . .

They might be in trade . . .

The adventurous type . . .

They might even be up to no good . . .

What are some trends in the literary world that you have noticed?
