Hampton Library Weekly Reads: Dec. 31
Three must-read books from the Capt. Kimberly Hampton Memorial Library
Here's three great picks from the Capt. Kimberly Hampton Memorial Library.
"Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever" by Jeff Kinney
Greg Heffley is in big trouble. School property has been damaged, and Greg is the prime suspect. But the crazy thing is, he's innocent. Or at least sort of. The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise blizzard hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors. Greg knows that when the snow melts he's going to have to face the music, but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays?
"Goliath" by Scott Westerfeld
Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alek’s throne as prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the Leviathan, continues to detour farther away from the heart of the war (and crown). And the love thing would be a lot easier if Alek knew Deryn was a girl. (She has to pose as a boy in order to serve in the British Air Service.) And if they weren’t technically enemies.
"Conqueror: A novel of Kublai Khan" by Conn Iggulden
ntrigue and treachery roil the vast Mongol nation as the heirs of Genghis Khan fight for control of his unprecedented empire and of his mighty armies. History will turn on the outcome of their struggle. But only one man, dismissed by all the others, will boldly rise to the challenge with the courage and vision to forge the future, and with the strength to be called . . .CONQUEROR.
