How often is your librarian limited to yelling?
In the Forests of the Night by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
It's been over three hundred years since Rachel was changed -- and now she sometimes forgets what it was like to be human, though she tries to retain humanity as far as possible. With her twin brother and family long dead, the only comfort she finds is in the companionship of Tora, a tiger caged in the zoo. But after years of being on her own, she suddenly finds herself being followed and threatened, despite being one of the most powerful vampires.
Forests was a good book; a simple plot, well-written -- and about vampire -- something we just can't seem to get enough of.

as hot as it was, you ought to thank me by Nanci Kincaid
I really had no idea about what to expect with this book. I picked it up because it had received good reviews -- and I'm glad I did. As hot as it was was a lovely book about a summer in small-town Florida, where everyone knows everyone's business, where the school principal is practically the law, and the two churches compete for attendance. Berry Jackson tells the stories -- the disappearance of her father, the running-out of the preacher, the hurricane that sweeps through and the handsome convicts that help repair the damage. Despite being young not understanding everything, Berry has great insights on life and frequently expounds on what she notices. This book swept me right up and I enjoyed reopening it every day.
I almost forgot! The library will be closed ALL weekend -- so if you need to get books, videos, or anything else, be sure to come by before 5!
