Laydown Lowdown

Father's Day is this Sunday and if you haven't gotten your dad (or the dad-like special man in your life) a gift yet, perhaps he'd like one of this week's new reads.

There are a lot of new Science Fiction/Fantasy reads today.   The highlights include "Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel, Volume 2," by George R.R. Martin, " "The Shining Girls," by Lauren Beukes, "The Mad Goblin," by Phillip Joseph Farmer, "Limits of Power," by Elizabeth Moon, and "The Tower," by Simon Toyne.
Or perhaps he'd like a Mystery such as "The Ides of April," by Lindsey Davis, "The Hanging," by Lotte Hammer, "Bad Monkey by Carl Hiassen, or "Aftershock," by Andrew Vachss.
I don't think many dads are into Romance novels but you never know, everyone has their guilty pleasures.  "One Heart to Win," by Johanna Lindsey is available today along with "Flirting With Disaster," by Ruthie Knox.

After you select the perfect gift, you may want to relax with one of today's new Young Adult titles.  "Infamous," the latest in Lauren Conrad's "Fame Game" series is available today as well as "Burning," by Elana K. Arnold, "Dance of the Red Death," by Bethanny Griffin, "A Matter of Days," by Amber Kizer and "Boy Nobody," by Allen Zadoff. 

Will any of these books make your "to-read" of "to-gift" lists this week?  Share with us and remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.
