Just a reminder to parents who kids participant in the acceleratored reader program, we have many books available in the library to give your kids a head start on their reading requirements for the upcoming school year. Ask the librarians for suggestions.
Several new mystery/thriller books have been added to the adult fiction section including all three books in the bestselling Stieg Larsson Millenium series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. The latest books by several popular well-read authors are now available. They include 61 Hours by Lee Child, Blue-Eyed Devil by Robert Parker and Caught by Harlan Coben.
We also have available the debut novel by Linda Castillo, Sworn to Silence. Booklist describes it as follows: Ohio’s Amish country serves as the bucolic backdrop for romance novelist Castillo’s consistently chilling mystery debut. Kate Burkholder grew up in idyllic Painters Mill, where many residents drive buggies, shun electricity, and distance themselves from the complications of modern life. The presence of a serial killer shatters the stillness of the town, leaving its citizenry terrified and on guard.
In addition to the Vladimir Todd Chronicles, we have also added two other series in the young adult fiction section: the first three books of the House of Night series of books by P.C. and Kristin Cast follow 16 year-old Zoey Redbird as she ‘marked’ by a vampire tracker and begins to undergo the ‘change’ into an actual vampire; and the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare which introduces Clary Fray to the world of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of warriors dedicated to driving demons out of our world.
