It’s exciting around here! A few weeks ago, the books coming out this fall starting appearing at the store, and every week, we have gotten more and more fantastic new books that we can’t wait to read! Each week, we’ll be recapping the new releases so you don’t miss a thing. Still to come this fall are new releases from Texas Teen Book Fest authors like Marie Lu, Scott Westerfeld, and Garth Nix.

The Infinite Sea is out and so far, Ta’necia is the only person at the store who has read it because she got to read the manuscript early but was sworn to secrecy. She wasn’t allowed to talk about it at all! If you’ve read it, stop by to talk to Ta’necia. She’s dying to talk to someone about it! “I was really wondering how he would top The Fifth Wave. That book was so good! Yancey exceeded my expectations. The Infinite Sea is action-packed. It has a great storyline and I love how we get additional character points of view. It’s a lot of fun to get to know their backgrounds and perspectives. I can’t wait for the movie! It’s going to be so good!” *Sadly, Rick Yancey is not one of the authors attending TTBF14.

Ellen’s pick of the day is Blood of My Blood by Barry Lyga. “I haven’t read this book yet, but I’ve read the first two books in the trilogy – I Hunt Killers and Game – and really liked those, so I know this new book is going to be a great, tense, and can’t-put-down book. I like this series because it is a balanced murder mystery and psychological thriller. I also love blood-spattered cover under the dust jacket. A great series for fans of Dexter, Bones, and Silence of the Lambs.”
