ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: 3-7 Library News (complete)

By Staff | Mar 6, 2020

The Heart of America Library has so many books it makes it difficult for me to choose what I will read. The new books pass through my hands on the way to the shelves, but there are only so many hours in a day, and just because we work at a library does not mean that we get to sit and read all day! Sad to say, but there it is! I have been intending to read something by the author Jojo Moyes, and had chosen “The Giver of Stars”, because it had to do with the Appalachian book project. It happened to be checked out, so I picked another, “Still Me”. I should have paid more attention, because “Still Me” was the last of a three book series, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. It was fine as a standalone novel. The author has an easy to read style and there is some humor in this book. If you are interested, the other two books in this series are “Me Before You” and “After You”. “The Giver of Stars” remains on my “to read” list.

A new non-fiction adult book is “Before and After: the incredible real-life stories of orphans who survived the Tennessee Children’s Home Society” by Judy Pace Christie. This book has compelling, poignant true stories of victims of a notorious adoption scandal-some of whom learned the truth from Lisa Wingate’s bestselling novel “Before We Were Yours” and were reunited with birth family members as a result of its wide reach.

In adult fiction we added “Thief River Falls” by Brian Freeman and “The Devil Who Tamed Her” by Johanna Lindsey. Also added are a couple western large print novels by Eric Red, “The Hanging Fire” and “Noose”.

We have a few books by Natasha Preston, a young adult thriller fiction author, “Broken Silence”, “Players, Bumps and Cocktail Sausages”, “Silence”, “The Cabin”, “You Will Be Mine”, and “The Cellar”.

Junior non-fiction has a new series about dirt bikes by R. L. Van, “Honda”, Husqvarna”, “KTM”, “Suzuki”, “Yamaha” and “Kawasaki”; and another series with titles “Myths”, “Festivals and Celebrations”, “Traditions”, “Folktales”, “Legends” and “Oral Histories”.

Junior fiction has a new series for those that like author Erin Hunter, The Survivors, the gathering darkness, with titles “Dead of Night”, “The Exile’s Journey”, “The Final Battle”, “Into the Shadows”, “A Pack Divided”, and “Red Moon Rising”.

New magazines this week include Consumer Reports, Country Living, People, Time, Better Homes & Gardens, Health, Martha Stewart Living, Real Simple and Midwest Living.
