Well it’s October and that means crisp nights, leaves changing, and of course, Halloween. That wonderful time of year when candy corn makes its stand and reigns supreme. We here at your community library invite everyone to come and stop by and visit and borrow some books and/or DVDs for these evenings that are getting longer. Also, we would love to have you come volunteer with us. We sure could use the help and we really enjoy new people. So come by, volunteer, and be a part of your library and community. Here’s what we have new for you this month.
Y is for Yesterday
New from Sue Grafton, this thriller is the darkest and most disturbing case report from the files of Kinsey Millhone. It begins at an elite private school in 1979. Four teenage boys sexually assault a freshman and film the attack, but the tape goes missing and the prime suspect is murdered. Ten years later, one of the perpetrators is released from prison and making trouble. Kinsey Millhone is called in to help, but the vicious sociopath (last seen in X) has a grudge with Kinsey and is leaving traces for her to find.
The Wrong Side of Goodbye
Detective Harry Bosch must track down someone who may have never existed in this new Michael Connelly thriller. Bosch is hired by one of California’s biggest billionaires to track down a baby he may have fathered years before, while he is also tracking down a serial rapist for a tiny police department. This is one of the most baffling and dangerous foes he has ever faced.
Game of Thrones Season Five
This season begins with a power vacuum that Westeros and Essos look to fill. At Castle Black, Jon Snow struggles to balance the Night’s Watch and Stan is Baratheon. Cersei scrambles to hold on to power. This season features some of the most explosive scenes yet, as the promises that “winter is coming” become more ominous than ever before. Rated 13+.
The final chapter in the Divergent Series, the team of rebels escape over the city wall into a strange new world when they face a threat more dangerous than they ever imagined. Together, they wage a furious battle for survival, fighting not only for their factions and loved ones, but for the future of an entire city. Rated PG-13.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
The hysterically funny, best-selling book comes to life in this family comedy. Greg Heffley is headed for big things, but he must first survive middle school. That won’t be easy, considering he’s surrounded by hairy-freckled morons, wedgie-loving bullies and a moldy slice of cheese with nuclear cooties! Rated PG.
The Never Ending Story
When young Bastian borrows a mysterious, ornately bound book, he never guessed that turning a page would draw him into a shimmering fantasy world of racing snails, hang-glider bats, puckish elves, a childlike empress and a host of other amazing characters. Rated PG.
There you have it folks, one hit after another. Enjoy these cool evenings and come to visit us at your library. Don’t forget to celebrate with some candy corn too!
