AMANDA'S PICK - Library Director

Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin

"Equal parts biographic sketches of Presidents T Roosevelt and W.H. Taft, and an examination of how "muckraking" journalists made way for modern journalism, Goodwin's book is a must-read for fans of history. Goodwin weaves non-fiction into a digestible story that keeps the reader interested. I highly recommend it!"

STACY'S PICK - Administrative Assistant

Talking as Fast as I can by Lauren Graham

"As a huge fan of the Gilmore Girls I was extremely excited to read this book. When I realized the audio book was read by Lauren Graham, I was even more excited! This audio book is fantastic... IF you love Gilmore Girls. If you didn't, why would you care to read about it anyways? Just skip this one. Lauren gives you a behind the scenes glimpse in to her life, Hollywood secrets and the show, Gilmore Girls. After watching the reboot on Netflix and listening to the book, I have to agree with Lauren, it totally ended on a cliff hanger!"

BARB'S PICK - Reference & RA Librarian

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

"I first read this book as part of our library's Reader's Haven Book Club; however, it was a title I had been meaning to come to for quite some time. Now that I have read it, I am mad at myself for not reading it sooner! This book was absolutely incredible; filled with twists and turns I never saw coming. The language was poetic, descriptive, and enticing. There were limitless layers to this novel and I feel that if I read it a second time, I would find even more (which I plan to). This novel was definitely darker than I expected, which gave it a thrilling aspect too. The perfect historical mystery novel that leaves you thinking about the plot and the characters for days-even weeks, after you've finished the story. I cannot recommend this book enough. It is unique, special, smart, riveting,  disquieting, emotional, human, philosophical and so much more. You should give it a go and then come visit me at the library to talk about it. I'd love to hear your thoughts."

"The setting is World War 2, with two WAC leaving a club. An attempt is made to kidnap them, but one of the WAC has a gun. Shots are fired and the would be kidnappers are killed or wounded. This starts events that go deep in the clandestine world which matches wits with both the American and Soviets. Good exciting suspense-packed read."

ANNETTE'S PICK - Circulation Clerk

I am Not a Serial Killer by Dan Wells

"A murder mystery that is fast paced like 'Law & Order SVU.' The detailed thoughts of a sociopath in the making kept me hooked to find out more. I was surprised that one character was part fantasy, but it kept me intrigued."
