Laydown Lowdown

Whoo-hoo!! It's finally May, I think the Spring weather is finally here to stay.  It's a great time of year to sit outside with a great book such as one of today's new reads.

Best selling author John Sanford presents his latest thriller, "Silken Prey," today plus Ace Atkins continues the late Robert B. Parker's legacy with the latest "Spencer," caper, "Wonderland."  Other novels available in Mystery today include "Hour of the Rod God," by Richard Compton, "Foal Play," by Kathryn O'Sullivan, and "Every Broken Trust," by Linda Rodriguez.

It sure is getting hot over in the Romance section with steamy new reads such as "Black Jack" by Lora Leigh and "Ours to Love," by Shayla Black.  Alysa Day presents her latest supernatural romance, "The Cursed," and Katie MacAlister debuts her the first book in her new paranormal romance, "Time Thief."

Somewhere in the Science Fiction/Fantasy section I bet you'll find our own Rebecca T. checking out "Reawakened: A Once Upon a Time Tale," by Odette Beane, based upon the hit ABC series.  Other tales available in the genre today include "Guardian," by Jack Campbell, "Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void," by Tim Lebbon, and "Shadows of Falling Night," by S.M. Stirling.

Sadly, it's time to say good-by to Sookie Stackhouse as Charline Harris has penned her last "Southern Vampire," novel.  "Dead Ever After," hits shelves today and we'll finally (hopefully) discover who Sookie settles down with and what will become of Bill, Eric, Pam and the rest of the citizens of Bon Temps.

Meanwhile, over in Young Adult, the successful "Morganville Vampire," series by Rachel Caine keeps growing with the 14th installment "Fall of Night." "Invisible," by Andrea Creamer, "Icons," by Margaret Stohl and the buzzed about dystopian thriller, "The Fifth Wave," by Rick Yancey are also available today.

There are a lot of great new books this week.  Are any of them on your "to-read" list.  I'm heading over to my local bookstore to pick up "Dead Ever After," right after work tonight.  I don't know what is going to happen but if Sookie doesn't choose Bill, I'll gladly swoop him up :)

Happy Reading!! Remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.
