50 Years of Making Memories: Silver Dollar City 1960-2010 by Jan Peterson, read by Tammy, on 03/10/2013

This is mainly a photo collection of the history of theme park, Silver Dollar City and Marvel Cave starting with the cave’s discovery. The photos also feature the theme park’s festivals, craftsman and visitors having fun in the park. It was a fun read for me, since I first went to Silver Dollar City as a sophomore in high school with my aunt and uncle, then when in college Branson was only an hour away so it was a great get-away spot for a day of fun with friends. So, the area holds lots of good memories for me.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, read by Tammy, on 07/24/2012

One teen’s search to discover the truth about his family heritage from all the stories his grandfather told and really to find his place in the world and where he belongs. A time-traveling story with bits of historical fiction set in World War II and the present at the same time about humans gifted with special abilities and the creatures that are trying to find and destroy them. I enjoyed the story and the mystery but the most unique thing about the book was the antique photos used by the author throughout the story instead of illustrations that show weird camera affects, special tweaking in the dark room or perhaps humans with special abilities – that is for you to decide. A truly unique coming of age story.
