And we’re back for another week of recreational reading with those bookgeeks at the Duncanville Public Library. For those of you who don’t have time to come to the library, remember that we also have ebooks. Go to Overdrive and sign in with your library card number. You’ll be able to read on almost any smart phone or tablet. It’s great for whenever you have to wait in line.

We’d like to know what y’all are reading too! So, please feel free to let us know in the comments.

 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander (J.K. Rowling)

This book is the adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads the book in school. The movie will be in theaters on November 18.

 Run by Kody Keplinger

Bo Dickinson is a girl with a wild reputation, a deadbeat dad, and a mama who’s not exactly sober most of the time. Everyone in town knows the Dickinsons are a bad lot, but Bo doesn’t care what anyone thinks.

Agnes Atwood has never gone on a date, never even stayed out past ten, and never broken any of her parents’ overbearing rules. Rules that are meant to protect their legally blind daughter — protect her from what, Agnes isn’t quite sure.

Bo and Agnes become best friends but their friendship is put to the test when they run away from their small town.

Image result Stanger Things (TV series)

This show on Netflix is awesome! What thing is plaguing the town of Hawkins? You will have to watch this binge worthy show to find out. If you have lived through the 80s then you will get a kick out of the setting and the wardrobe of the characters. Even if you don’t have personal memories of the 80s you can still enjoy the way it used to be. Small bits like one of the kids bragging about his TV make the show funny at times. I have a teenager who thought the phones on the show were hilarious. The last episode ended in such a way that keeps you wondering how the writers will continue the story with the next season.

The life-changing magic of tidying up: the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing by Marie Kondo

This is a great book to start your journey to decluttering your space. This book is about decluttering process and stories of clients she has worked with. Found this refreshing and an easy read. There is also a companion iPhone app that goes along with book too. I even have started some the decluttering process myself.

 A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Book two in this fantasy/romance young adult series. Really enjoyed this one. Maas takes the relationships and events of the first book and subverts them so they mean something completely different. The heroine learns that she has autonomy and is capable of much more than she imagined, and I cheered her growth as I read. Naturally, the book ends on a cliffhanger and the third one isn’t yet published! I’ll be waiting impatiently until it comes out.

Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Kelsey gets a summer job with a local circus and is responsible for feeding their white tiger. She’s sad when he is sold but the new owner hires her to assist in the tiger’s transport to India. After she and the tiger arrive, Kelsey finds out that the tiger isn’t always a tiger.

I first read this as an ebook but wound up buying a print copy because the cover is beautiful. The other three books in the series have beautiful covers too.
