The fall publishing season is upon us and there are a number of big titles to look forward in the upcoming months. The fall season truly features something for everyone. While it is impossible to list all the exciting titles coming to the Library, these are a few titles that should get lots of buzz.
Doctor Sleep by Stephen King This is by far the book I am most excited to read this fall. Doctor Sleep is the long awaited sequel to The Shining, which first came out in 1977. Dan Torrence is still haunted by what happened to his family one winter at the Overlook Hotel. Now an adult, Dan has settled into a simple life in New Hampshire and uses his fading shining ability to provide comfort to the dying. But Dan is forced into a battle for the life of a young girl with a strong shining ability and the ghosts of his past come to a head in what I hope will be a creepy adventure worthy of its predecessor. To gear up for the release, refresh your memory and check out The Shining.
A Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs & the Rise of Professional Hockey by Stephen J. Harper (yes that Stephen Harper). Any hockey fan has seen our Prime Minister at a number of hockey games as he often gets shown on the jumbotron or on TV. It's no secret that he is a big fan of the game and for years he has mentioned that he was writing a hockey book, he even became a member of the Society of International Hockey Research. Well that book is A Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs & the Rise of Professional Hockey. Don't let the title fool you though the book isn't only for Leaf fans, but is a look at the early history of professional hockey. A must read for any Canadian hockey fan.
Si-Cology 1 By Si Robertson I watch a lot of Duck Dynasty, it's hard not to get wrapped up in the antics of the Robertson clan and by far my favorite part of the show is pretty much anything Uncle Si says (Si-isms) or does. The guy is definitely a character and now he can add published author to his list of accomplishments. Si-Cology 1 is various tales from Si that essentially tell his life story. I have just started reading the book and it's interesting to get insight into parts of Si's life that aren't on the show, including his life with his wife and children. Si-Cology 1 joins other Duck Dynasty books including Happy, Happy, Happy and Duck Commander Family both of which are best sellers.
