The Quest

Author: Nelson DeMille

Review by: Audreyperry, Algoma Public Library

Loooong book. 16 discs. There were parts of it that I thoroughly enjoyed and other parts that were really off the storyline and very long in unnecessary detail. Not my favorite Mr. DeMille book.

Allegiant

Author: Veronica Roth

Review by: Carrie Berken, Appleton Public Library

Allegiant is the third and final book in the 'Divergent' Series.  I loved the first two books, Divergent and Insurgent, the final book of the series, however, was a little disappointing to me.  I don't want to give anything away, in case any of you reading this review have not made it to the end of the series yet . . . But, I just felt that...

Killing Kennedy

Author: Bill O'Reilly

Review by: Carrie Berken, Appleton Public Library

I am a self-proclaimed history buff, and so I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  I thought that I knew all that there was to know about the Kennedy Assassination, but I still learned some new facts in reading this book.  It is a non-fiction book, written as fiction, and I personally thought that it was fantastic.  I could't put it down, and was up way to late many nights reading (even though I knew how the book was going to...

Dirty Daddy

Author: Bob Saget

Review by: Denise C, (Sturgeon Bay) Door County Library

Bob Saget has two personas. The first is the sweet neurotic television father in the 90's tv show Full House and the other is a colorful standup comedian. Bob writes about his life before he was famous, his road to stardom and all the personal losses in his life. This is a great book for Bob Saget fans. I love the behind the...

Henry VIII wants a divorce and will stop at nothing to get it, although he needs reassurance that his eternal soul is not at risk. In steps Thomas Cromwell. The conflicts between politics and religion, the nobility and commoners, and logic and blind faith are at work throughout this vast novel. The central character of the book is Thomas Cromwell, who rises to power because of his shrewdness and ability to understand human...

Bossypants

Author: Tina Fey

Review by: anorkett, Waupaca Area Public Library

In need of some humor, I listened waiting to get my fill. There were some laugh out loud moments (her responses to comments made online about her) but was definitely expecting more from the Saturday Night Live star. The real surprise was her reveal about her facial scar. I hadn't noticed it and thought it...

The First Rule of Swimmimg

Author: Courtney Angela Brkic

Review by: PacaLipstick Gramma, Appleton Public Library

First of all, the cover is intriguing. And you shouldn't judge by it's cover, but had it not been for the cover, I am sure I would have passed it over a few times.

I rated this book 5 stars ~ a book that was closer to 5 stars rather than 4, and so much more deserving of the...
