Laydown Lowdown

First up, I erroneously reported that this weeks latest Romance novels came out last week.  I'm sorry if I created any confusion amongst the romantics.  "A Most Naked Solution," by Anna Randol and "Somebody Like You," by Candis Terry are available today, for real this time!

Meanwhile, there must be a crime spree because there are dozens of new mysteries available today.  Some of the highlights include "A City of Broken Glass," by Rebecca Cantrell, "A Fountain Filled With Blood," by Julia Spence Flemming, "Creole Belle," by best-selling author James Lee Burke, and "Fire Season," by John Loomis.

Best-selling author Orson Scott Card teams up with Aaron Johnston to pen a prequel to Card's "Enders Game," series, "Earth Unaware."  Other new releases in Sci-Fi/Fantasy include "Queen's Hunt," by Beth Bernobich, "Ripper," by David L. Goleon, and "The Coldest War," by Ian Tregillis.

Over in Young Adult, you'll find "Spark," the 2nd novel in the "Sky Chasers" series by Amy Kathleen Ryan and "A World Away," by Nancy Grossman.

I normally don't report on e-books but I feel that "The Sweet Life," is worthy of an exception.  "The Sweet Life," is a six-part e-serial that is set three years after "Sweet Valley Confidential."  The infamous characters are now in their 30's and find their lives a lot more complicated than they used to be.  Parts 1 and 2 were released this past Sunday and subsequent installments will be released every Sunday through August 12.  Look for my review later this week.

Other new releases in fiction include "Shine, Shine, Shine," by Lydia Netzer and "When In Doubt, Add Butter," which surprisingly is not a Paula Deen cookbook but a novel by Beth Harbison.

Keep cool and Happy Reading Everyone!  Remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.
