Did anyone else make a New Year’s resolution to live a healthier lifestyle and hit the gym each week? If you’re anything like me, you have the best of intentions yet your motivation decreases more and more every day. This eventually leads to – you guessed it – the same old resolution next year. Here at the Houston County Public Libraries, we try to do everything we can to help alleviate this vicious cycle of commitment and failure by offering up a great way to keep your mind occupied while your muscles are burning on the treadmill – new audio books!
Both the Centerville Public Library and the Nola Brantley Memorial Library have purchased many new audio books just in time to keep you committed to calorie burning! Below is a sampling of what each library has recently received:
One new audio book at the Centerville Public Library is Karin Slaughter’s Fractured. A review for this work is as follows:
At the start of bestseller Slaughter’s heart-pounding sequel to 2006’s Triptych, wealthy housewife Abigail Campano returns home one day to Atlanta’s posh Ansley Park neighborhood to find a dead girl in the mansion’s upstairs hallway, the apparent killer nearby. Thinking that the girl is her teenage daughter, Emma, the distraught Abby kills the alleged attacker only to realize that the murdered girl is not Emma, but Emma’s friend, Kayla Alexander. Agent Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation soon determines that he has a murder and kidnapping on his hands. Paired with Det. Faith Mitchell, Trent scrambles to put the pieces together and find Emma before it’s too late. Slaughter brings the same raw energy and brutal violence that distinguishes her Grant County series (Beyond Reach, etc.) to this new series with chilling results, while Trent and Mitchell, a pair of complex and deeply flawed heroes, will leave fans clamoring for the next installment.
