Summer Reading is for Adults, too!

Our Summer Reading Program got off to an uproarious start Monday, June 4th, with a puppet show for children. Tuesday, June 5th, the teen program kicks off with a Hunger Games party that references the book by Suzanne Collins that has teens reading vociferously this summer.

For adults, we're taking on the Summer Reading Program theme 'Get a Clue' by featuring mysteries by Texas authors and/or with Texas settings. Our book display on the round wall has been up for two days and in that time we've stocked it twice, so enjoy Texas mysteries this summer and keep our librarians running to keep you supplied!

1st to Die- Women’s Murder Club series by James Patterson


I know that this is only my second post, but I’m sure after a few more it will be revealed that I read A LOT of series. Probably more than I should. Now don’t get me wrong, I love stand-alone novels, but I live for character development; especially when I become attached to the characters. I love seeing them grow throughout the series.

Outta Sight!

Grave SightI’m sure many of you are familiar with Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse/ Southern Vampires series. Now, I do love a good vampire story as much as the next person, but I was in my ‘burn-out’ stage with paranormal fiction When I came across the Harper Connelly books. When this series was recommended to me by a friend, I was hesitant about reading it.

Murder Most British

I blame Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Dame Agatha Christie. It’s all their fault. They took a genre and, through hard work and talent, made it into a worldwide obsession. I’m speaking, of course, of British mysteries.
