Laydown Lowdown

Happy April !  Easter is almost here.  Perhaps you'll find some of today's new releases in your basket on Sunday?

Mystery fans will have a full basket to look forward to.  New releases today include the 15th Regan Reilly novel, "Gypped," by Carol Higgins Clark and "Limpopo Academy of the Private Detection," the 13th "Ladies Detective Agency," novel by Alexander McCall Smith.  "Beastly Things," the 21st "Guido Brunetti," novel by Donna Leon, "Dorchester Terrace" by Anne Perry, "Miss Julia to the Rescue," by Ann B. Ross, and "Harbor Nocturne," by Joseph Wambaugh are also available today.

Bunny hop over to Romance and you'll find the latest by Amanda Ashley, "A Darker Dream," as well as "Eternal Craving," by Nina Bangs, "The Wolf Who Loved Me," by Lydia Dare, and "Enraptured," by Elizabeth Naughton.

Shake your tail over to Sci-Fi and you'll discover "Plague Town," by Dana Fredsti, "The Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare," by Jason Fry and "Nocturnal," by Scott Sigler."

Twitch your whiskers and head on over to YA to find "Radiate," by Marley Gibson, "Grave Mercy," by Robin LaFevers, "I Hunt Killers," by Barry Lyga, and "Immortal City," by Scott Spear.

Finally, one of the hottest (both literally and figuratively) new releases today is a book that has already gotten tremendous publicity and was previously published as an e-book and then in print by a small publisher to wild success.  This erotic novel, geared for women, reportedly flew off the shelves in its initial printing.  Now, "Fifty Shades of Grey," by E.L. James, the first in a trilogy gets a wide release today by Knopf Publishing.  Look for a review and more on this novel next Thursday.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed this weeks Laydown Lowdown !  Happy Easter and Happy Passover to those who celebrate. 

As always, remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.  Just because our blog is online, it doesn't mean your shopping has to be.

Neat post! I'm a big YA reader and funny thing is, I just added Plague Town to my to-read list like 5 minutes ago. Sounds like a good read!
