Kuna Reads!

Archive for August 2009

This is a PlayawayWe get new books nearly every day at Kuna Library, and we love watching them fly off the shelves.  Here’s just a sampling of what’s new on for you to check out, and don’t forget that you can place reserves on books from home through the library website.  Add your name to the reserve list and we’ll call or email you (your preference) as soon as it’s available for you.
Adult Fiction

The Eleventh Victim by Nancy Grace.  CourtTV’s Nancy Grace releases her first fiction thriller.  Inspired by events from her own life (like the main character, Nancy Grace’s fiance was also murdered), this suspense novel follows a former D.A. being stalked by the serial killer she once put away.  He claims 10 of the murders he was convicted of, but denies the 11th, setting the story’s mystery up.

The Hope of Refuge by Cindy Woodsmall
South of Broad by Pat Conroy
Intervention by Robin Cook

Smash Cut by Sandra Brown.  Sandra Brown focuses on crime and suspense in Smash Cut, released last week. Inspired by film noir, this story gets readers wondering just how far a film fan might take his obsession.  Far enough to kill for thrills by reenacting classic film killings, or is it all a setup with a deeper motive?

Blindman’s Bluff by Faye Kellerman

That Old Cape Magic by Richard Russo

The Girl Who Played with Fire by Steig Larsson

Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann.  This NYC-based novel has received outstanding reviews, and even found its way to Amazon’s Best Books of 2009 list-in-progress.  The arresting sight of a man walking a tightrope between the twin towers (the book is set in the seedy ’70s) spans out into the stories of 10 different New Yorkers.  McCann’s New York is trashy, dim, and totally absorbing.

SpongeBob SquarePantsWe can only stay away from storytime for so long…  Weekly storytimes are back at the library at noon on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. This week’s theme is “As Seen on T.V.”, so expect appearances from favorite characters like Dora, Diego, SpongeBob and more. Plus, we’ve got some cool giveaways for all kids at storytimes this week, so drop in for a half hour of stories and fun.

The countdown to regular programming is on, so keep your eyes and ears open for updates on Music and Movement sign-ups, which will be available soon!
