Laydown Lowdown

Happy July!! It's hard to believe it's July already.  This summer is flying by all too fast for me.  I'm looking forward to slowing down and enjoying the 4th with a good book before the fireworks.  There are plenty of new reads to choose from this week.

R.L. Stine takes a break from scaring middle grade readers by returning to the YA genre with "A Midsummer Night's Scream."  How can you not love that title?  Other new releases in Young Adult today include "Awaken," the finale to Meg Cabot's "Abandon" trilogy, "SYLO," by D.J. MacHale, and "The Distance Between Us," by Kassie West.

Laurell K. Hamilton releases her 22nd "Anita Blake" novel, "Affliction" today.  "Storm Surge," by Taylor Anderson, "Night Vision," by Yasemine Galehorn, and  "The Arrivals," by Melissa Marr are also available in Science Fiction/Fantasy today.

If you have a hard time committing to just one Romance novel at a time, look for today's new novella compilations such as "Entralled," which features the work of Lora Leigh, Alyssa Day, Meljean Brook, and Lucy Monroe; "Hot Summer Nights," featuring stories by Jaci Burton, Carly Phillips, Erin McCarthy and Jessica Clare; or "Fangs for Nothing," which features Erin McCarthy and Kathy Love.

Other new releases in Romance include "Archer," by Debra Kayn, "Animal Magnetism," by Jill Shalvis, and "All I Need," by Francis Ray.

Mystery fans will want to discover "Not the Killing Type," by Lorna Barrett, "The Fame Thief," by Timothy Hallinan, "Let it Burn," by Steve Hamilton, or "Cat in a White Tie and Tails," by Carole Nelson Douglas.

And if none of these titles appeal to you, you may enjoy "The Rest of Us," by Jessica Lott.  A thought provoking tale of second chances.  Look for my full review tomorrow. 

Will any of these new reads make your "to-read" list?  Please share with us!  Happy Reading and remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.
