Laydown Lowdown

It's apple picking season but while I love apple pie and applesauce, I've never been a fan of raw apples and I don't understand the appeal of picking your own apples.  Instead, I'd rather go to my local bookstore and pick some fresh books.  Perhaps, you do too.  There are plenty of great new books to choose from this week.

R.L. Stine reboots his "Fear Street" series after a long hiatus with "Party Games."  Check out my review on Thursday.  You'll also find "The Fine Art of Pretending," by Rachel Harris, "Between the Stars and the Sky," by David James, "Complete Nothing," by Kieran Scott,  "The Queen of Zombie Hearts," by Gena Showalter,  "Lies We Tell Ourselves," by Robin Talley and "Belzhar," by Mike Wolitzer all available in Young Adult today.

Step over to Romance for "Kiss Me, Captain," by Gwen Jones, "Night Play," by Sherrilyn Kenyon, "The Groom Says Yes," by Cathy Maxwell, "All Fired Up," by Katie Meader, "The Groom Says Yes," by Cathy Maxwell, and "He's So Fine," Jill Shalvis.

Look out for "Dangerous Women," an anthology edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois in Science Fiction/Fantasy, plus "To Dance With the Devil," by Cat Adams and "Magician's End," by Raymond E. Feist.

Slide through Mystery/Thriller for "The Lost Key," by Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison, "Murder as a Second Language," by Joan Hess, and "Aunty Lee's Deadly Specials," by Ovida Yu.

Will you pick any of these books this week?  Share with us!  Happy Reading and remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.
