Kerry has some wonderful reviews for you. They are posted below! We hope you'll check out these titles. If you do, be sure to let us know.
A Promised Land by Barack Obama
Available in Print to Easton Residents
Intended Audience: Adults
A Promised Land is the first volume of an autobiographical memoir released last fall by former President Barack Obama. In it he discusses his childhood and the journey of how he decided to run for President in 2008. It takes you through his presidential campaign and the issues and decisions of his first term in office. This is a well thought-out read that is beautifully and thoughtfully written with great attention to detail. A definitive account of Barack Obama's first few years in the White House and how he got there.
Bridgerton (Netflix series)
Based on the books by Julia Quinn
These books are currently on order. You can view them here.
However, some titles in the series are available on Hoopla.
Bridgerton is romantic, dreamy, escapism at its best. Daphne Bridgerton is the eldest daughter of the Bridgerton family who makes her debut on the London Regency marriage market. She meets Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings, who is determined not to marry. They devise a plan to court each other so he can remain a bachelor and so she can catch the eye of other suitors. Does their plan work? This show manages to blend Jane Austen style courtship with significant heat and Gossip Girl style narration. A very easy show to binge watch. Season one is available now, and season two is in the works.
Rated TV-Mature for Mature Audiences only.
That's all for this week.
Happy reading (and watching)!
