Cassandra’s Pick

First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen

First Frost is a magical new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Lost Lake, featuring characters from her beloved novel Garden Spells. Autumn has finally arrived in the small town of Bascom, North Carolina, heralded by a strange old man appearing with a beat-up suitcase.  He has stories to tell; stories that could change the lives of the Waverley women forever… As temperatures drop and leaves begin to turn, the Waverley women are made restless by the whims of their mischievous apple tree… and all the magic that swirls around it. But this year, first frost has much more in store.

I cannot express how much I loved reading a Sarah Addison Allen novel. I have been a fan of her since her release of Garden Spells in 2007 and have loved everything she has published. She is an author I would recommend to any reader, check out her newest and let me know what you think. First Frost takes readers back to the wonderful world of Garden Spells with all the touches of magic and the characters we know so well and love. Lose yourself in Sarah Addison Allen’s enchanting world and fall for her charmed characters in this captivating story that proves that a happily-ever-after is never the real ending to a story. It’s where the real story begins.

Haunted by everything he experienced, he’s privately suffering from battle fatigue which is a threat to every aspect of his life. But then he gets a call from a source within the FBI. A new development has come to light in a story that began 40 years ago. It could be the BIG story of Dawson’s career one in which he has a vested interest. Soon, Dawson is covering the disappearance and presumed murder of former Marine Jeremy Wesson, the biological son of the pair of terrorists who remain on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. As Dawson delves into the story, he finds himself developing feelings for Wesson’s ex-wife, Amelia, and her two young sons. But when Amelia’s nanny turns up dead, the case takes a stunning new turn, with Dawson himself becoming a suspect.

 The Underneath by Kathi AppeltThe Underneath by Kathi Appelt

This book is geared for middle grades and is worth 9 AR points.  This is a story about a dog, a cat and her two kittens that live “underneath” the porch of a not so nice man, Gar Face’s, house.  If you like adventure and animals you may like this book. Happy Reading.

There is nothing lonelier than a cat that has been loved, at least for a while, and then abandoned on the side of the road. A calico cat, about to have kittens, hears the lonely howl of a chained-up hound deep in the backwaters of the bayou. She dares to find him in the forest, and the hound dares to befriend this cat, this feline, this creature he is supposed to hate. They are an unlikely pair, about to become an unlikely family. Ranger urges the cat to hide underneath the porch, to raise her kittens there because Gar-Face, the man living inside the house, will surely use them as alligator bait should he find them. But they are safe in the Underneath…as long as they stay in the Underneath. Kittens, however, are notoriously curious creatures. And one kitten’s one moment of curiosity sets off a chain of events that is astonishing, remarkable, and enormous in its meaning.

Five Days Left by Julie Lawson TimmerFive Days Left by Julie Lawson Timmer

This is a heart-wrenching debut about two people who must decide how much they’re willing to sacrifice for love. Mara Nichols is a successful lawyer, devoted wife, and adoptive mother who has received a life-shattering diagnosis. Scott Coffman, a middle school teacher, has been fostering an eight-year-old boy while the boy’s mother serves a jail sentence. Scott and Mara both have five days left until they must say good-bye to the ones they love the most. Through their stories, Julie Lawson Timmer explores the individual limits of human endurance and the power of relationships, and shows that sometimes loving someone means holding on, and sometimes it means letting go.

Blue Ribbon Baking from a Redneck Kitchen by Francine BrysonBlue Ribbon Baking from a Redneck Kitchen by Francine Bryson

National pie champion, mom, homemaker, and self-proclaimed redneck, Francine Bryson won the hearts of bakers everywhere when she appeared on CBS’s The American Baking Competition and went on to become a finalist on the show. Known for her down-home Southern charm and sass (and for successfully pairing chocolate and peanut butter with bacon), Francine now shares her sought-after recipes and tips in her very first baking book. Here are the recipes and tricks I was taught by my Great-Granny, Granny, Nana, and Mama–the women who schooled me on the ways a Southern woman keeps a kitchen–and that I learned from twenty-plus years of competing on the baking circuit. Now you can bake up award-winning pies such as Upside-Down Apple Pie, fluffy Biscuits like Nana made, and irresistible treats like Soda Pop Cake and Classic Southern Lemon Bars–all so good they have made the rounds with the ladies at church, the bridge clubs, supper clubs, and mom groups for generations.

Plastic Bottle Chandelier

0

In case you haven’t noticed, we have had a beautiful plastic bottle chandelier hanging behind our circulation desk for about a year now. This chandelier was started at the 2014 Mogadore Community Fair.

There were bottles available at the fair that the whole community was encouraged to color and decorate with permanent marker. Then the Mogadore School Art Clubs took the bottles and finished off the creation by cutting the bottles in spirals and rigging it all together. We love this art installment in our branch. It gives even the dreariest of days a punch of color.

Plastic Bottle Chandelier

We’ve had a lot of questions about this masterpiece and have been asked many times if we have the directions on how to make it. Well ask no more, we found a child/art room friendly version that is easy enough to try at home! In the version we have on display the bottles were cut in the spiral method. http://www.artsmudge.com/construction/2011/10/plastic-water-bottle-chandelier

 

Here are a few more links on other crafts from items around your house that might bring out your creative side. Enjoy!
