City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

Tracy says:
A spellbinding, addictive fantasy that steps outside the usual tropes and settings to create something truly memorable. Weaving in fascinating details of Islamic history and folklore, The City of Brass is a fast-paced, opulent roller-coaster ride drenched in intrigue, hidden dangers, and compelling world building. I hung on every word and can’t wait to see what comes next for this fascinatingly complex cast of characters.

Mrs. Miracle

Cheryl says:
A great, feel-good holiday movie (and book) by my favorite author. Mrs. Miracle really does work miracles.

Let the Right One In

Raychel says:
If you’re looking for a foreign horror film, try Let the Right One In (based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist) is a new take on the vampire genre and follows a bullied 12-year-old boy named Oskar who befriends a pale young girl named Eli who shows up in their Swedish village. If this sounds familiar, there was also a late-2010 American film called Let Me In starring Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Grace Moretz.

Trish’s Picks: (Mostly) Scary Movies for Halloween

Halloween is only a week away, and we’re in the mood for some scary movies! Trish from our Lebanon Junction location has 7 picks sure to give you some chills and thrills this holiday season…


 

1. Night of the Living Dead
The original! 
Do you fear zombies? Well, this movie might push you over the edge. A cult classic, Night of the Living Dead has spectacularly terrifying and chilling cinematography well advanced for 1968. Even after 51 years Night of the Living Dead easily gives modern-day horror movies a run for their money. I’m coming to get you Barbara… 😉

2. A Quiet Place
Although not traditional Halloween movie fare, A Quiet Place rates high on the creepy thrill scale and is sure to leave you tense and gripping your seat! I love how wrapped up I get in the characters’ fight to avoid detection and even though I have seen this movie 15 times, I am still overcome with anxiety every time I watch it!

Get from the Library

 

3. The Ring
A mysterious videotape is responsible for the horrifying death at the end of a week for anyone who watches it. Discovering the source of a family member’s death is this tape, a reporter must stop the chain of events before it hits even closer to home. “Seven days…”

4. The Haunting of Hill House (television series)
Flashbacks show the tragic and terrifying circumstances that forced them out of their home, ultimately revealing a terrifying conclusion. I was literally so caught up in this series that I suffered withdrawal from the fear when it ended!

ON ORDER
Psst… Did you know that you can request a purchase on our website?


5. Poltergeist
A family faces terror like they have never experienced when their home and lives are taken over by demonic forces. The fear is real, and I can’t help but feel a shiver down my spine remembering how scared I was! The behind-the-scenes stories are even more frightening. They’re hhhhhheeeerrreeee….

Get from the Library

 

6. The Sixth Sense
A child sees the dead when no one else can and turns to a psychologist who is facing his own demons. Terrifying and at the same time giving the viewer a mystery to solve. My favorite thing was the build-up and the twist when I realized what had happened! I see dead people…

Get from the Library

 

7. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
What can I say… I am a kid at heart and who doesn’t love Charlie Brown? A funny and heart-warming classic that I still love to watch every year! I got a rock…

Beth’s Picks: Spooky Reads for Halloween

We’re in the mood for Halloween at BCPL!

This year, we want to make your Halloween extra spooktacular with fun events for the entire family all October long. From a special Halloween Family Storytime in the dark to our illuminated pumpkin trail and a haunted house, we’ve got you covered for pre-Halloween activities. We’ve also got you covered this month for some awesome, spooky reading recommendations. Beth from our Lebanon Junction Branch is kicking us off with six picks she thinks you’ll love!

A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay ​
A teenaged girl begins to show signs of possession, and the family enlists the help of their priest and a reality show. Is she truly possessed, schizophrenic, or is the whole thing fake??

 

We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
Two sisters and a feeble uncle are the only survivors of a family tragedy, one that ostracized them from the villagers. Is there a murderer among the family or the villagers, or is it something else?

 

“The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson ​
I think this is one of the best short stories ever written. It has had a lasting impact on me, and the story of sacrifice, mob action and just going along with something… these themes stand out in all of Jackson’s works, but most especially this one.

 

The Best of Richard Matheson by Richard Matheson ​
Matheson is a greatly overlooked author—his stories range from slightly twisted to terrifying. Many people don’t realize how prolific he was, but they’ve likely seen a movie or TV episode written by him.

 

With Their Dying Breaths by CC Thomas
I knew about Waverly Hills even before I moved here 8 years ago—the history, hope, hopelessness, and possibility of hauntings make this a must-read for ghost and history lovers alike.

 

Night Shift by Stephen King
There’s one story, “The Boogeyman,” that scared me so much ​in 1978 that I still CANNOT sleep if the closet door is open. Even the tiniest bit.

But there’s still plenty to celebrate and be thankful for this fall season with Thanksgiving just around the corner. Then, before you know it, winter and Christmas celebrations will begin!
