Giddings Library News Corner


By Judy Belyeu

The Giddings Public Library has many large print fiction books to choose from. Burning Lamp by Amanda Quick is Book 2 of The Dreamlight Triology. Crime lord Griffin Winters believes he has been cursed and engages in a psychic experiment with the mysterious Adelaide Pyner, who holds Nicholas Winters’ missing lamp. A Precious Jewel by Mary Balogh reveals a family tragedy that has left well-bred Pricilla Wentworth in poverty. She turns to a life of prostitution and is most grateful when Sir Gerald Stapelton chooses her to be his mistress and tries not to expect anything more.

The Gift by Julie Garwood is about Sara Winchester, a child bride, who is joyfully awaiting the return of her husband, Nathan Marquess of St. James. Upon their return to England, her love will be sorely tested. The Help, an historical fiction, by Kathryn Stockett takes place in 1962. Three ordinary women are about to take one extraordinary step that forever changes a town and the way women—mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends—view one another. In God Of The Hive by Laurie King is a novel of suspense featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes. Mary Russell picks up a mysterious friend while making her way back to London, Sherlock Holmes investigates questions about a ruthless villan while hiding a wounded son, and murderous adversaries set a deadly trap.

Think Twice by Lisa Scottoline is a fiction novel about twin sisters. Alice, the evil twin sister, drugs her identical twin sister Bennie and leaves her for dead. Bennie survives and must convince everyone all she ever cared about is the real Bennie, and not the deranged twin. Dead In The Family by Charlaine Harris is a Sookie Stackhouse novel. Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress, contends with the outcome of the Faery War, her feelings for vampire Eric Northman, and the Shifter community going public.
