Laydown Lowdown

We've been getting a lot of rain here in NY.  What better way to spend the day than curled up with a good book.  There are plenty of new releases today to catch your eye.

First up in YA, "The Selection," by Kiera Cass is finally available.  This dystopian romance features a young heroine who must rebel against a futuristic caste system for true love.  The CW Network is banking on this novel being a hit as they've greenlit a pilot and are contemplating a series based on this novel for their fall schedule.  "Thumped," the conclusion to "Bumped," by Megan McCafferty is also available today along with "All the Right Stuff," by Walter Dean Myers, and "Ascend," the final novel in Amanda Hocking's "Trylle" trilogy.

Over in Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Stephen King returns to the universe he created in his epic "Dark Tower," miniseries with "The Wind Through the Keyhole," a new Dark Tower tale that takes place chronologically between books 4 and 5 of the series.  "Fever Dream," by George R.R. Martin is available in paperback today as well as "Bitter Seeds," by Ian Tregillis and "On the Prowl," by Chris Warren.

Andrew Gross, who co-authored several novels with James Patterson, continues to write mysteries with his latest release, "Don't Look Twice," out in paperback today.  "Betrayal of Trust," by J.A. Jance and "Afterwards," by Rosamind Lupton are also available in paperback today.

Finally, there is lots of love to go around today with tons of new releases in Romance.  Some of the highlights include, "Into the Dreaming," by Karen Marie Moning, "Under a Vampire Moon," by Lynsay Sands, "Wicked Pleasure," by Lora Leigh, and "A Whole New Light," by Sandra Brown.

Happy Reading !  Remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.  Just because our blog is online, it doesn't mean your shopping has to be.

Andrew Gross lives in Rye Brook New York where my Waldenbooks #987 was. He came in all the time, nice guy! My store was also featured in the bookstore scene in Young Adult starring Charlize Theron! Carol

That's cool that you got to meet Andrew Gross. I'd love to ask one of Jimmy P's co-authors how much work Mr. Patterson actually did on the novels. I haven't seen Young Adult yet but I've been wanting too. It's great that your store was captured on film forever.
