A New Set of Reviews For You

Hello Readers....


It's Friday and that means we have another round-up of reviews for you. All of these great titles were reviewed by our Director, Lynn Zaffino. She'd love to hear what you thought of them. So if you end up reading these, please let us know how you liked them.


Okay, here we go.....!


The Wife Stalker by Liv Constantine

Available to Easton Residents in print

Intended Audience: Adults

Reviewed by: Lynn

The Wife Stalker is a fast-moving novel of domestic suspense that I couldn't put down. Handsome, successful Leo Drakos is caught between two women, Joanna and Piper. After Piper “steals” him, Joanna does all she can to try and win him back. But all is not as it seems, and the twist at the end will take your breath away! You've just found your next great beach read!


Mrs. Everything by Jennifer Weiner

Available to Easton Residents in print; CD audiobook; eAudio on RBDigital & Overdrive; eBook on Overdrive

Intended Audience: Adults

Reviewed by: Lynn

Mrs. Everything is the story of two sisters, spanning their lives from 1950 to 2022. Aptly named Jo and Bethie (a nod to Little Women), the two sisters have completely different personalities and life goals. Jo is nontraditional and tomboyish, while Bethie is pretty and feminine. Both end up in places and situations they couldn't have imagined, and both encounter joys, sorrows, and challenges along the way. I very much enjoyed the book – following Jo's and Bethie's stories through the decades. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good family drama.


The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

Available to Easton residents in print; CD audiobook; eAudio on Hoopla & Overdrive;

Intended Audience: Young Adults

Reviewed by: Lynn

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is a prequel to The Hunger Games. It takes place during the Tenth Hunger Games, in which the future President Snow is an 18-year-old mentor in the Games. After a little trouble getting into the story, I was soon swept away by this new story of action and adventure. Before long, I found myself very much invested in the fate of young Coriolanus Snow and his tribute from District 12, Lucy Gray Baird. One of the interesting things about this story is that some of the origins of the Hunger Games rituals are revealed. I would recommend this book to all Hunger Games fans.


That's all for this week. Enjoy!
