Between the Covers – June 12

New books on the 7-Day Shelf this week are; “Fire with Fire” by Candice Fox and “Clive Cussler Fire Strike” by Mide Maden. En Français, nous avons “L’Affaire Henry Cross” par René Vézina.


STAFF PICK OF THE WEEK is “Untamed” by Glennon Doyle. From the book jacket:

Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member’s ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say: There She Is.

New Movies on the Shelf are “Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” starring Elizabeth Olsen and John Krasinski. Available in Blu-Ray and DVD. Also new on the shelf is “The Banshees of Inisherin” starring Colin Farrell and Barry Keoghan, “Fargo season 3” starring Ewan McGregor and Carrie Coon. For the kids, we have “The Smurfs 2” starring Katie Perry and Christina Ricci. Come on in and check it out!
