"The Power of Vulnerability: Teachings of Authenticity, Connections and Courage" by Brené Brown (Adult Non-Fiction/Self-Help)

“I’m really glad I went with the audiobook on this one. I have to say I love listening to Brené. She has a wonderfully emphatic approach while speaking about serious issues like vulnerability and shame. I love her ability to incorporate humor without it coming off as ill-timed, but rather as a welcome break from a topic that can become overwhelmingly heavy. 10/10 would hire her as my life coach!”
– Melissa Apple, Adult Programming/Reference Librarian

"How to Find Love in a Bookshop" by Veronica Henry (Adult Fiction)

“It’s pretty much a guarantee that I am going to love any story that takes place in a bookshop, and this did not disappoint! If you need to escape the stress of these difficult times, I recommend this lovely story that has all the feels of a Hallmark movie. The weather may be getting warmer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t cozy up with this inviting read.”
– Melissa Apple, Adult Programming/Reference Librarian


"Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine" by Gail Honeyman  (Adult Fiction )

“We are sheltering in place and social distancing for our safety right now, but what if you chose to live your life your life like this? Eleanor Oliphant lives a very isolated life, aside from her office and trips to the store for frozen pizza and vodka (his might sound familiar to some of us right now). When a chance encounter changes her life she will see that having people in her life, might not be so bad.”
– Shannon Kazmierczak, Digital Downloads/Reference Librarian

"Killing Eve" (Television Series, Thriller)

“Fast paced, whip-smart, highly entertaining TV series now in its 3rd season, based on the Luke Jennings novel of the same name. Excellent acting with an all-encompassing perspective of both the cat and the mouse!”
– Shannon Kazmierczak, Digital Downloads/Reference Librarian
