What I’m Reading…

I just finished the book Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner which is a new release. Jennifer is one of my favorite authors and loves to connect to her fans on all forms of social media. When her publisher decided to move UP the date of publication, it was not expected as many other books were pushed back. It does not disappoint.

Instagram influencer Daphne Berg is shocked when Drue Cavanaugh comes back into her life six years after huge fight.  Daphne hasn’t spoken one word to Drue in all this time so when Drue asks if she will be her maid-of-honor at the society wedding of the summer, Daphne is speechless but agrees to do it.

About halfway through the book there is an interesting twist and I don’t want to ruin it but I was shocked because I did not see it coming. Along the way Weiner touches on topics like Instagram filters, weight and the complexities of both female friendships and family.  I highly recommend it for a good summer escape.

Big Summer is available in ebook and audiobook formats in Overdrive.

Our July Displays

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. It’s time for a good beach read.

Our first display on the main floor is still Beach Reads. Lots of books have been added to the display, and also includes bibliographies. There is still time to join the Adult Summer Reading Club.

Our second display is Non-Fiction Beach Reads. As the old saying goes, “truth is stranger than fiction.” The display is stocked with interesting tales, including histories, biographies and crime stories. There is sure to be a story to catch your eye.

 

The two main floor mini displays are:

· Travel the World through Books, a great way to see exotic places, learn about foreign cultures and enjoy our magnificent planet.

· Large Print Beach Reads, more fun reading and easy on your eyes.

On the third floor the health librarian continues with the theme Health Beach Reads. Learning about our bodies and how to stay healthy is always of interest. As usual, there are plenty of handouts are available.

Enjoy Parks and Recreation Month is the topic for the second display. It’s full of ideas for fun outdoor activities, hiking, cycling, fishing, canoeing, camping and activities to do with the family or with your dog.

Make Syosset Public Library part of your summer entertainment.
