Catching Fire

For fans of The Hunger Games--the sequel has finally arrived!
Here's the description from Amazon.

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

If you like historical fiction and you haven't already read all the books in Oprah's book club (this was one), you'll love Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett.  It's the story of the building of a great cathedral during medieval times, and the life stories of all the interesting people involved in that endeavor.  A smart and ambitious monk, a skilled stone mason, a clever young lady, an evil bishop, and so much more.  Really absorbing (and really long!).

First Degree by David Rosenfelt

Check our catalog for: First Degreefirst degree cover
This is the second book in the mystery series featuring wise-cracking defense attorney Andy Carpenter (follows Open and Shut).  They are humorous and exciting, not too deep.   I thought this one was even funnier than the first one.  And you get to know the characters a little better in this one.  Andy's girlfriend, Laurie, is accused of a crime, and he's trying to defend her.
