Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

Do you remember how I said the new May books were all of the books we'd be getting in for the rest of the year?  Well I forgot about the pre-ordered/back-ordered books and a shipment of the last books (I mean it this time) is now in and ready to be checked out.

I'm incredibly excited about these, especially Bitterblue.  I've been waiting all year for this book to come out.  It's the sequel to Graceling.  Those of you disappointed by Fire, this is the book to make it all better.

And The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom looks to be super cute and hilarious.  And the film rights have already been bought so expect to see a movie some time in the future!

I know some of the 7th graders read Black Hole Sun for the Science Fiction component of their genre project.  If you liked it, you might want to check out the long awaited sequel, Invisible Sun.  I know, it has a truly terrible cover, apparently the illustrator didn't read the book or get the memo that the main character is sixteen.  SIXTEEN!  Instead, they've put some buff guy who looks about twenty-six on the cover.

However, The Wicked & the Just has a pretty nice cover and a super juicy story to go with it.  If you like historical fiction with a twist than this is a book for you.

New books in library!

These will be the last new books for the year so come take a look and check them out while you still can!

There are some fantastic new graphic novels and YA stories.  And if you're looking for something action packed and full of adventure, make sure to take a look at I Am A SEAL Team Six Warrior, the true story of a Navy SEAL.
