HOT BOOKS

  • THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Paula Hawkins

    This novel that circulates around one single event. The reader travels the story from the viewpoints of three women, whose lives are intertwined more than they know. This story keeps the reader unsure who they can trust and who they “should” like, but all the characters are relatable and seem like someone we could be or someone we might know. Hawkins slowly pieces together a series of events that keeps you quickly turning pages. Each page though creates more questions that need to be answered. This is a novel that keeps the reader guessing what will happen next until the huge reveal at the end.
  • LEGENDS & LIES: THE REAL WEST by Bill O'Reilly

    If American history is your forte, you’ll enjoy this book, which has an Introduction by Bill O'Reilly. It revisits the legends and myths of the Wild West that we have all heard. But this time, you’ll read the truth about them. You’ll become familiar with the adventures of Daniel Boone, David Crockett, Kit Carson, Wild Bill Hickok, Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley, Jesse James, Billy the Kid and more. The stories are enhanced by photographs and paintings of the era which lend to the effectiveness of the stories. If you have reluctant history readers in your midst, this book will surely grab their attention. It is the companion volume to the Fox News Series.
  • THE GREAT ZOO OF CHINA by Matthew Reilly

    What if Dragons were real? What if they were in a zoo we could visit? The Great Zoo of China answers those questions for us. Chinese scientists have discovered the existence of dragons, previously thought to exist only in legends. When the Chinese Government builds a zoo to house these dragons for the world to see, the beasts prove much more difficult to handle than normal animals. Reminiscent of Crichton’s Jurassic Park, this book pits humans versus beasts of legend.
  • THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah

    Set in 1939 in war torn France, we meet two sisters, Vianne and Isabelle, each dealing with the occupation of their beloved country by German soldiers in different ways. Vianne chooses to go along and not make waves when their home is occupied by a German captain and their lives are profoundly changed, but Isabelle resists his presence and activities and works with the underground movement seeking to thwart Germany’s hostile plans for France during World War II. The book clearly shows that wars are not fought by soldiers alone, but also by those far from the front. The characters are vivid and the story is compelling from beginning to end.

DAVID LUBAR

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22; 7-8 PM @ The Greene

Children’s author DAVID LUBAR, who has written In the Land of the Lawn Weenies, Invasion of the Road Weenies and others, will introduce his newest book, My Rotten Life: Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie.  Due to a strange science experiment gone wrong, 10 year-old Nathan is doused with a serum and transforms into a zombie.  But he discovers he likes being half-dead.  He doesn’t need to eat, bathe or sleep, which helps him work on his video game skills.  And his new tolerance for pain leads to athletic stardom and makes worrying about bullies a thing of the past.  Nathan can win every gross-out contest and is becoming slightly popular with his peers.  Does he really want his friends to help find him a cure or does he prefer his wacky zombie life?
