Everyone loves staying on top of the latest in books & DVDs and we receive them on a regular basis at your library.  Join us as we hit the highlights of some of the popular titles being released today.

John Wick: Chapter 2
Starring: Keanu Reeves
Summary: Legendary hitman John Wick is once again called out of retirement, this time by a former colleague who wants him to repay a debt by killing an Italian crime lord.  But when the attempted assassination goes awry, Wick finds himself hunted by an international cabal of killers, and his only hope for survival might be a shadowy figure known as the Bowery King.

The Lego Batman Movie
Starring: Will Arnett
Summary: There are big changes brewing in Gotham City, and if he wants to save the city from the Joker's hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others, and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

Tom Clancy Point of Contact
Author: Mike Maden
Summary: Former U.S. Senator Weston Rhodes is a defense contractor with an urgent problem.  His company needs someone to look over the books of Dalfan Technologies, a Singapore company - quickly.  He turns to his old friend Gerry Hendley for help.  Hendley Associates is one of the best financial analysis firms in the country and the cover for The Campus, a top-secret American intelligence agency.  Rhodes asks for two specific analysts, Jack Ryan Jr., and Paul Brown, a mild-mannered forensic accountant.  Both Ryan and Brown initially resist, for different reasons.  On the long flight over, Ryan worries he's being sidelined from the next Campus operation in America's war on terror.  Brown - who was never very good with people - only worries about the numbers, and finding a good cup of tea.

The Identicals
Author: Elin Hilderbrand
Summary: Identical twin sisters who couldn't look more alike...or live more differently.  Harper Frost is laid-back, easygoing.  She doesn't care what anyone thinks of her.  She likes a beer and a shot and wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything fashionable.  She's inherited her father's rundown house on Martha's Vineyard, but she can't hold down a job, and her latest romantic disaster has the entire island talking.  Tabitha Frost is dignified, refined.  She prefers a fine wine and has inherited the impeccable taste of her mother, the iconic fashion designer Eleanor Roxie-Frost.  She's also inherited her mother's questionable parenting skills - Tabitha's teenage daughter, Ainsley, is in full rebellion mode - and a flailing fashion boutique on Nantucket in desperate need of a cash infusion.  After more than a decade apart, Harper and Tabitha switch islands, only 11 miles apart, as well as their lives to save what's left of their splintered family.  But the twins quickly discover that the secrets, lies, and gossip they thought they'd outrun can travel between islands just as easily as they can.  Will Harper and Tabitha be able to bury the hatchet and end their sibling rivalry once and for all?

Pottymouth and Stoopid
Author: James Patterson
Summary: David and his best friend Michael were tagged with awful nicknames way back in preschool when everyone did silly things.  Fast-forward to seventh grade: "Pottymouth" and "Stoopid" are still stuck with the names - and everyone in school, including the teachers and their principal, believe the labels are true.  So how do they go about changing everyone's minds?  By turning their misery into megastardom on TV, of course!  And this important story delivers more than just laughs - it shows that the worst bullying doesn't have to be physical...and that things will get better.

Look for these titles at your Abilene Public Library and get yourselves on the reserve lists so you're certain to keep up with some of the popular releases of the week.
