Laydown Lowdown

It's the middle of May.  A lot of TV shows are wrapping up their seasons.  Summertime is just around the corner, it's a great time to find some good reads.  Perhaps some of today's new releases will do the trick.

In Mystery, best-selling author John Sanford delivers his latest "Lucas Davenport," mystery with the 22nd installment, "Stolen Prey," out today.  "The Columbus Affair," by Steve Berry and "As the Crow Flies," by Craig Johnson are also available as well as a new paperback edition of "Dead as a Doornail," by Charlaine Harris is out today.   The fifth entry in the series provided inspiration for the fifth season of "True Blood," which premieres June 10th on HBO.  The novel's text is the same but collectors may way want to snag one with the sexy new cover. 

Over in Romance, you'll find "Star Struck," by the genre appropriately named, Jane Lovering plus "Persuade Me," by Juliet Archer, and "Always Something There to Remind Me," by Beth Harbison.

Moving over to Sci-Fi/Fantasy, you'll discover the latest Neal Stephenson book, "Reamde," is now in paperback along with "The Profession," by Steven Pressfield, and "The Testament of Jessie Lamb," by Jane Rogers.

Over in YA, it's a bittersweet day for fans of Ellen Screiber's "Vampire Kisses," series.  Fans will finally discover if Raven gets her wish of spending an eternity with her vampire love Alexander in the series' conclusion, "Immortal Hearts."  Or if immortal love isn't your thing, you may enjoy reading about a man with many loves, King Henry VIII.   "Gilt," by Katherine Longshore, is a historical fictional tale of the King's fifth wife as witnessed by her best girl friend.

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.

Hmm, that "Gilt" book sounds interesting because you know what a geek I am about Tudor history. Poor Catherine Howard, from what I understand she was quite a nympho, lol. I see it's a YA story but it got a good review from Kirkus so I might check it out :)
