We received a great number of books this week, including our ALA books, and are excited to share some awesome titles with you.
I'm most excited about sharing some of the lesser known titles that I found at ALA, and hopefully, this will inspire you guys to keep an eye out. :)
The Doubt Factory by Paolo Bacigalupi (Little, Brown BFYR)
Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori Lee (Skyscape)
Vampires of Manhattan by Melissa De La Cruz (Hyperion)
I'm both excited and saddened by On A Clear Day, because Mr. Myers passed away earlier this week. *Tips hat to him*
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon (Bloomsbury USA)
The Fire Artist by Daisy Whitney (Bloomsbury Children)
A BIG <3 to all of the lovely ladies at Bloomsbury. I'm excited for all of these books, and I'm really looking forward to the Bone Season readalong that is being hosted by Bloomsbury in August!
(We'll post details as soon as they're up!)
The Bridge From Me To You by Lisa Schroeder (Point)
The Time of the Fireflies by Kimberly Little (Scholastic)
Once Upon A Time in Rio was pitched to me as One Hundred Years of Solitude with rice. There's no way I can resist a description like that.
Very excited about Lisa and Kimberly's books from Scholastic - they look like perfect summer reads.
A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall (Swoon Reads)
Hook's Revenge by Heidi Schulz (Disney Hyperion)
Picture Perfect by Holly Smale (Harper Collins UK)
ALA book highlights:
(A.k.a. books to be aware of!)
I'm Glad I Did by Cynthia Weil (Soho Teen)
The Wollstonecraft Detective Agency by Jordan Stratford, Kelly Murphy (Illus.) (Knopf)
I'm excited about all of these books for different reasons, but I'm especially excited about I'm Glad I Did. I LOVE the era when it's set, so really looking forward to this one.
There will Be Lies by Nick Lake (Bloomsbury)
The Whispering Skull by Jonathan Stroud (Disney Hyperion)
I was introduced to Nick Lake by Lizzie Mason, and I immediately fell in love with his writing. It's dark, gritty, but also digs into you in a way that you can't really ignore. SUPER excited for There Will Be Lies.
I loved The Screaming Staircase, so I'm stoked about The Whispering Skull. Jonathan's a versatile, funny writer, and I have no doubt that this book will be just as creepy and fun as the first.
The Truth about Twinkie Pie by Kat Yeh (Little, Brown BFYR)
A Blind Spot for Boys by Justina Chen (Little, Brown BYFR)
Just a reminder:
