Staff Picks: Horror

Halloween is right around the corner, and if you’re like me, it’s time for a good ghost story.  Something to make the hair on your neck stand up.  Here are some of my favorites:
“The harrowing” by Alexandra Sokoloff.  Empty dorm, college kids staying over holiday break, Ouija board…. you get the picture
“The house of small shadows” by Adam Neville.  Yet another reason that taxidermy is creepy.
“The ruins” by Scott Smith.  Listen to the plant when it tells you something.
“Heart-shaped box” by Joe Hill.  He learned at the feet of the master, his father, Stephen King.  Very, very creepy ghost story.
For those of you not afraid of the thing under the bed, give one of these books a read.  But don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to sleep with the light on.

Star Wars Reads Day

The Branch Library Readers' Guild meets Monday, August 12 at 7 pm.
 
Location: Warmack Branch Library
This month we discuss Defending Jacob, by William Landay.

From the publisher:
Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney for two decades. He is respected. Admired in the courtroom. Happy at home with the loves of his life, his wife, Laurie, and teenage son, Jacob.

Then Andy’s quiet suburb is stunned by a shocking crime: a young boy stabbed to death in a leafy park. And an even greater shock: The accused is Andy’s own son—shy, awkward, mysterious Jacob.

Andy believes in Jacob’s innocence. Any parent would. But the pressure mounts. Damning evidence. Doubt. A faltering marriage. The neighbors’ contempt. A murder trial that threatens to obliterate Andy’s family.

It is the ultimate test for any parent: How far would you go to protect your child? It is a test of devotion. A test of how well a parent can know a child. For Andy Barber, a man with an iron will and a dark secret, it is a test of guilt and innocence in the deepest sense.

How far would you go?
