Laydown Lowdown

What beautiful weather we've been having here in NY.  It seems Spring has finally sprung.  As I write this, I've got my cat cuddled up along side me and a warm breeze blowing in through the window.  I can't wait to curl up as well with some of these great new releases.

First up in mystery, Kate White, the editor of Cosmopolitan magazines returns from her recent stand-along thrillers, "Hush" and "The Sixes," to visit her original heroine Bailey Weggins, with the 6th installment in that series "So Pretty it Hurts."  Also new in mystery today, "Force of Nature," by CJ Box, Harlan Coben's latest, "So Close," "Red on Red," by Edward Conlon," and "That's How I Roll," by Andrew Vachss.
Isn't this cover awesome ! Her books are great inside too :)
New releases are light in other genres today.  In Romance, best-selling authors Cherry Adair and Suzanne Brockman's latest novels, "Afterglow" and "Born to Darkness," are out.


 Over in General Fiction, you'll find "Lessons in Laughing Out Loud," by Rowan Coleman and "Gossip" by Beth Gutcheon. 


I'm also at a loss as to why "Loss," the latest "Riders of the Apocalypse" novel by Jackie Morse Kessler is the only new novel out in Young Adult today.  Naomi should be excited though as this was one the books she was most looking forward to this year.


Horror fans may want to check out Dean Koontz's latest book in his "Odd" series. However, "House of Odd," isn't a traditional novel, it's a graphic novel.


And over in Biography, writer/director/producer Kevin Smith releases his autobiography, "Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy, Slob, Who Did Good."  I'd like to debate the "did good," portion of the title.  To me Kevin will always be known as the guy who broke up Caitlyn Ryan and Joey Jeremiah on "Degrassi: The Next Generation."  I'll probably never get the opportunity to air my grievance in person so, I'm doing it here!


And there you have it, the Laydown Lowdown !  Remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.  Pick up a good book and enjoy the beautiful spring weather.

Another thing that goes great with Spring weather - tee shirts !  Pick up your official Booksellers Without Borders NY tees, hoodies, totes and bears at our Cafe Press Shop!

Nice! I've enjoyed everything that I've read by Harlen Coben, and Dean Koontz's voice is one of my favorites. I'm not really in to graphic novels, but I may give this one a shot.
