Ever since the breakout hit “Gone Girl” hit shelves, there has been no shortage of suspense novels with words like “girl” or “woman” in their titles, all looking to replicate the same level of success. A few have pulled it off in terms of popularity, and even fewer in terms of quality. The first such book to receive a good deal of hype in 2018 is A.J. Finn’s debut novel “The Woman in the Window”. Does it live up to it? I would have to say resoundingly yes.
I expected I would like this book, based on all the praise that has been lavished upon it, and I can say that I was not disappointed. This sweeping, multi-generational epic follows a family beginning with their lives in Japanese occupied Korea and then into Japan itself, where they face rampant discrimination as refugees.
Winter is in full swing, and with it comes the cold weather. Few animals are more closely associated with the cold than the majestic polar bear. With their snow white coats they blend perfectly with their snowy surroundings. As we are all inside keeping warm, it is the perfect season to learn about these beautiful, endangered animals.
Welcome to 2018! We hope you all had a happy holiday season, and that any of the after effects of your New Year’s Eve celebrations have subsided. The beginning of January brings with it a host of exciting new releases, including the first heavily hyped thriller of the year, The Woman in the Window.
Over the last 2 days we’ve shown you the year’s most circulated books and movies, but there’s much more to our collection. And so we are happy to present the year’s most checked out music, video games, and graphic novels.
With video stores having become a thing of the past, it’s no surprise to learn that the library has become the go-to place to pick up a DVD. As a result, it’s interesting to see just what movies most captured the attention of the local community.
