Off the shelf: Duncan Library’s newest weekly items | Community

This week, Sept. 1 through Sept. 8 the Duncan Public Library’s newest selection of books include, another big shipment of books of all kinds.

When people think of a romance, it seems they often think of those bodice rippers, which we do have a lot of. But romances often take place in modern times, in both cities and small towns, and some include elements of suspense, family drama, or even a little murder.

The romances we’ve got in run the gamut. Brenda Janowitz (The Liz Taylor Ring); Davis Bunn (The Emerald Tide); Marcia McClure (Desert Fire); Jody Hedlund (Never Leave Me); Susan Wiggs (Sugar and Salt); Poppy Alexander (Littlest Library); Allison Ashley (Would You Rather); Ali Brady (Beach Trap); Christine Feehan (Red on the River); Pippa Grant (One Who Loves You); Danielle Steel (Challenge); Julie Garwood (Grace Under Fire); Mary Balogh (Remember Love); Katherine Center (The Bodyguard).

The same goes for the variety of paranormal, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, or magical realism genres we have in. You might know what you’re getting just from the author’s name, but you might like to try a fantastical surprise! Sunyi Dean (Book Eaters); Megan Giddings (Women Could Fly); Doug Murano (Hideous Book of Hidden Horrors); Leslye Penelope (Monsters We Defy); Heather Graham (Aura of Night); Patricia Briggs (Soul Taken); Sarah Gailey (Just Like Home); JM Miro (Ordinary Monsters); Blake Crouch (Upgrade); Julia Armfield (Our Wives Under the Sea); Dean Koontz (The Big Dark Sky); Heather Graham (Aura of Night); R.A. Salvatore (Glacier’s Edge); Jamie Ford (The Many Daughters of Afong Moy).

A few new audiobooks have come in as well. These are in Book-on-CD form, so you can listen with your CD player in the car or at home or on the computer. Brandon Sanderson (Stephen Leeds); Jack Campbell (Resolute); Danielle Steel (Suspects); Tracie Peterson (Beyond the Desert Sands); Mary Connealy (Inventions of the Heart); Mary Jordan (The Prison Angel).
