So it’s nearing the end of summer, guys. It definitely feels like it anyway. I’m not actually sad though, because I am not really a fan of hot weather (no AC makes all the difference). So to celebrate the death of summer, I’m putting the spotlight on some of our new items that are fatal, lethal and otherwise deadly.
Long live Autumn!
The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Alex Morales parents go missing after a horrible catastrophe sends the moon spinning out of orbit, causing natural disasters, food shortages, and other problems. Morales’s daily struggle for survival is interspersed with realistic moral dilemmas and serious tests of faith.
Undead cheerleaders spice up this otherwise ordinary tale of a girl and her single father moving to a small town. When Hannah moves to Maplecrest, she’s flattered to be courted by the cheerleading squad. That is, until she finds out the secret to their success…
Death Angel by Linda Howard
Book on CD. Drea Rousseau, once the girlfriend of renowned crimelord, Rafael Salinas, barely managed to escape the relationship with her life – and Salinas’s money. In order to make sure she stays alive and free, Drea will have to team up with the FBI, and a man who might be even more dangerous than her ex.
Sing Me Back Home: Love, Death, and Country Music by Dana Jennings
In Sing Me Back Home, Dana Jennings pushes past the iconic voices and images of country music to get at what the music truly means to us today. Yes, country tells the story of rural America in the twentieth century – but the obsessions of classic country were the obsessions of America as a whole: drinking and cheating, God and death, envy of the new neighbors and the yearning for home.
The Walking Dead by Gerald Seymour
“A young man starts a journey from a dusty village in Saudi Arabia. He believes it will end with his death in faraway England. For honor, for glory, for victory. If his mission succeeds, he will go to his god a martyr – and many innocents will die with him.”
A classic movie from the 1980s on DVD – After a woman’s seductions lead to a one night stand, she pursues her obsession violently. Starring Michael Douglas, Glenn Close and Anne Archer.
Speaking of classics from the 80s, when was the last time you watched Lethal Weapon? Was it recently? Buddie cops, Mel Gibson, 80s fashions, and tons of action – what’s not to love?
