Laydown Lowdown

If Borders was still in existence, I know Rebecca T., Charles and I would've had a long night tonight.  There are tons of new releases out tomorrow.  How nice it would be to see the full carts of books ready to be set out for sale.  I'm a little melancholy tonight.  My only consolation is the cold turn the weather has taken makes my cat super snuggly.  Anyways, on with the Laydown Lowdown!

There is a lot of love to go around in Romance.  Here are some of the highlights.  Best-selling authors and icons, Danielle Steel and Barbara Taylor Bradford both have new novels out today with "Betrayal" and "Letter From a Stranger," respectively.

Also available today, "A Week to Be Wicked," by Tess Dare, "At Your Pleasure," by Meredith Duran, "Perfect Storm," by Lori Foster, "Caught in the Act," by Jill Sorenson, and the latest "Black Dagger Brotherhood" tale, "Lover Reborn," by J.R. Ward.

Saunter over to Science Fiction for "Dead Reckoning," by Charlaine Harris, the 11th Sookie Stackhouse novel is released in paperback today.  This is very exciting because I bet it includes a chapter of the 12th title, "Deadlocked," which is due in hardcover May 1, 2012.  Other releases in the genre today include: "Eternity's Mark," by Maeve Greyson, "Costume Not Included," by Matthew Hughes, and the 4th "Downside Ghosts," novel, "Sacrificial Magic," by Stacia Kane.

Moving to mystery, you'll find this book.  I don't know much about the plot but the cover and title have me hooked, "No Cooperation from the Cat," by Maria Babson.  Other mystery releases today include the darker sounding, "Death in Summer," by Benjamin Black, "Blood in the Water," by Jane Haddam, "Bones of a Feather," by Carolyn Haines, "A Hard Death," by Jonathan Hayes, and "Dead by Midnight" by Carolyn G. Hart.

Yaw over to Young Adult, and you'll find the sequel to "The Goddess Test," Goddess Interrupted," by Aimee Carter,"Obsidian," by Jennifer Armentrout, "Dark Eden," by Patrick Carmman, "The Fame Game," by Lauren Conrad and "Entwined," by Heather Dixon, and"Spellcaster," which is the sequel to one of my favorite reads from last year, "Spellbound," by Cara Lynn Shultz.

Fans of "Game of Thrones," will probably enjoy the "Game of Thrones," graphic novel out today.  This graphic adaptation is based on the first novel by George R.R. Martin.  And you know you've made it in life when someone mocks you, "A Game of Groans: A Sonnet of Slush and Soot," by George R.R. Washington is available. 

And that's your Laydown Lowdown for this week !  Happy Reading.  Remember, to support your local bookstores whenever possible.  Just because our blog is online, doesn't mean your shopping has to be.
