Laydown Lowdown

This week is Banned Books Week, a week dedicated to building awareness of contemporary censorship.  What better way to celebrate than reading any book you like?  Don't ever let someone tell you what you can and can not read. 

I don't think any of this week's new reads will ignite a controversy but you never know...

Romance fans' hearts will be racing today as there are dozens of new genre releases today.  Some of the highlights include: "Deadline," by Sandra Brown, "A Lady Most Lovely," by Jennifer Delamere, "Captain's Paradise," by Kay Hooper, "Summer is for Lovers," by Jennifer McQuiston, "One Lucky Vampire," by Lynsay Sands, and  "Always on My Mind," by Jill Shalvis. "10 Shades of Seduction," an erotic short story collection featuring the work of Tiffany Reisz, Lisa Renee Jones, Portia DaCosta and others is also available today.

Move over to Mystery and you'll discover "Cut to the Bone," by Jeffrey Bass, "The Bride Wore Size 12," by Meg Cabot, " "The Crooked Pearl," by Shaun Morey, and "The Good Sister," by Wendi Corsi Staub.

Scoot by the Science Fiction/Fantasy section for "Autumn Whispers," by Yasmine Galenorn, "A Study in Silks," by Emma Jane Holloway, "All is Fair," by Emma Newman, and "Star Wars: Empire & Rebellion: Razor's Edge," by Martha Wells.

Jocelyn Davies wraps up her "Beautiful Dark" trilogy with "A Radiant Sky," available in Young Adult today.  Other new releases in the genre include "Chasing Shadows," by Swati Avasthi, "Inheritance," by Malinda Lo, "Not a Drop to Drink," by Mindy McGinnis, and "Through the Zombie Glass," by Gena Showalter.

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