October 2020 staff picks

Amee: This month, in honor of Halloween, I am sharing one of my

favorite horror books by Stephen King, The Stand. A dystopian novel

about a man-made virus which decimated the US population. The

survivors will battle to decide the fate of humanity. On December 17,

2020 CBS Access will release an updated TV mini-series of the book.

The library owns a copy of the book as well as the 1994 DVD TV

mini-series if you would like to borrow.

Mary: The Under Suspicion series by Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair

Burke. The series (#1-I’ve Got You Under My Skin) is about a producer

of a TV show that investigates high-profile cold cases by looking at

those closest to the crimes.

Megan: The Little Kitten by Nicola Killen. A sweet story about a little

girl named Ollie and her cat, Pumpkin. While out playing on a beautiful

autumn day they find a kitten and play with it. They then realize the

kitten is lost and they help it home. Now Ollie needs Pumpkin to help

her find her way home.

Unleashed by Diana Palmer. Part of the Long, Tall Texans series. Clancey

and her little brother fled their abusive childhood home and have been

running ever since. She doesn’t depend on anyone, but herself. But,

she’s tempted to put her faith in her boss, the handsome Texas Ranger

Colter Banks. Especially when her stepbrother gets released from jail.

Kasey: The Guest List by Lucy Foley. An intriguing tale that will keep

you guessing until the very end.

Katie: The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmel. An unforgettable

historical novel about a young woman with a talent for forgery who

helps hundreds of Jewish children flee the Nazis. Inspired by an

astonishing true story from World War II.
