Laydown Lowdown

We've been getting a lot of summer storms lately which is a perfect excuse to curl up with a good book.  Perhaps one of today's new releases will make your list.

If summer sleuthing is up your alley you'll be excited by the new mysteries today such as Tana French's latest, "Broken Harbor," the fourth in the "Dublin Murder Squad" series.  James Patterson's frequent co-author, Peter de Jong has a solo book out today, "Buried on Avenue B."  Other new mysteries include "Judgement Call," by J.A. Jance, "Black List," by Brad Thor, and "Let the Devil Sleep," by John Verdon.

Or, if summer lovin' is your thing, you'll want to check out "Sleepwalker," (now in paperback) by Karen Robards, or "The Golden Leopard," by Lynn Kerstan.

Others may wish to spend their summer in sci-fi with new releases like "Thirteen," the latest "Women of the Underworld," novel by Kelley Armstrong or "Darksiders: The Abomination Vault," by Ari Marnell.

If you're on a summer break, the latest YA novels may be for you.  Kiersten White releases the third novel in her "Paranormalcy" series, "Endlessly," today.  "Cold Fury," by T.M. Goeglein, "I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: The Legacies," by Pittacus Lore, and "Something Strange and Deadly," by Susan Dennard are also available today.

Other new releases in fiction include "Where We Belong," the latest novel by best-selling author Emily Giffin, the paperback release of 11/22/63 by Stephen King and "A Simple Thing," by Kathleen McCleary.  Danielle Steel also has a new, non-romance, novel out today, "Friends Forever."

Will any of these new releases make your reading list?  I'm pretty excited about the new Emily Giffin but for  now, I need to get back to my book-club book.  Remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.  Happy Reading!
