Laydown Lowdown

I just got back from the movies and my face is still hurting from laughing so hard during "American Reunion."  If you loved the first three, don't miss this one ! But enough with the movie review, let's check out this weeks latest releases.

My reading tastes haven't really left high school which is why I love YA so much.  New in the genre today is "Pretty Amy," by Lisa Burstein, "Kill Me Softly," by Sarah Cross.  "Kill Me Softly," makes me think of that hilarious scene in "About a Boy," where Hugh Grant sings Roberta Flack's "Killing Me Softly."  I'm getting another smile cramp now.  Alright back to new YA releases.  Someone better warn Stacey Keibler that "Dear George Clooney: Please Marry My Mom," by Susin Nielsen is also available today along with "Book of Blood and Shadow," by Robin Wasserman.

Over in Romance, you'll find "Deadline," the latest by best-selling author Fern Michaels and the fourth entry in her "Godmothers" series.  "A Wish and a Prayer" by Beverly Jenkins is available as well as "Dark Shadows: Angelique's Descent" by Lara Parker.  Parker played Angelique of the 70's soap "Dark Shadows," which is the basis for the upcoming Johnny Depp-Tim Burton spectacle of the same name.  This novel will explore the love hate relationship between Angelique and Barnabas Collins.  I must admit this book sound way better than that mess of a trailer I've seen for the film.

Meanwhile, over in Mystery, you'll discover "A Killing Winter," by Wayne Arthurson," "A Teeny Bit of Trouble," by Michael Lee West, "The Inquisitor," by Mark Allen Smith, and "A Bad Day for Scandal," by Sophie Littlefield.

If you check out General Fiction, you'll see "Come Home," the newest novel by one of my favorite author's Lisa Scottoline.  Also available today is "Glamour in Glass," by Mary Robinette Kowal, "Cloudland," by Joseph Olshan, and "Kings of Midnight," by Wallace Stroby.

And that's the Laydown Lowdown for the 2nd week of April 2012 !  Happy Reading and remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.  Just because our blog is online, it doesn't mean your shopping has to be.
