With this newest creation readers are given yet another fantastically funny, heartfelt, interesting story that will have all Austen fans clamoring for more.
 


Author:  Donna VanLiere
ISBN:  978-0-312-61372-3

On top of this gorgeous story, the illustrations are also just as beautiful as the words, themselves.  Every home should have this book resting on the bookshelf, and whenever we think about our pain, agony, and suffering, I believe we should always remember the journey that a frightened couple made in order to give this world a chance to survive.



Author:  Livia Washburn
ISBN:  978-0-7582-2570-2
 
From the very first book in this action-packed series, this fantastic author has brought us through story after story that has concentrated on the lives of The Blades of the Rose.  This fourth offering picks up right where the wonderful Rebel left off. 


Author:  Zoe Archer
ISBN:  978-1-4201-0682-4

From the great chase scenes, to the romance that erupts between the inventor and the newshound, every part of this story is unforgettable.  Not to mention, I thought the way Ms. Archer handled the issue of prejudice – from the America’s and their Civil War, to how Catullus was treated in his own beloved England, the author was able to really speak volumes within a true, non-stop adventure.

Author:  Henry Neff
ISBN:  978-0-375-83898-9


 
This, like the rest of the books in the series, was the ultimate adventure story.  Full of fantastically unforgettable characters, non-stop action, and even a hint of romance – I, for one, will sit on the edge of my chair for the next book that this amazing author creates.  Enjoy!

Author:  Michael David Lukas
ISBN:  978-0-0620-1209-8

To begin this review properly, let me just say that this is one of the most creative, elegantly descriptive stories I’ve read in a long time.


Author:  Joseph Monninger
ISBN:  978-0-385-73941-2


Author:  Jen Bryant
ISBN:  978-0-375-85759-1

A lot of great lessons are taught in this extremely entertaining story.



Author:  Lynn Biederman & Lisa Pazer
ISBN:  978-0-385-73921-4

This story is anything but schmaltzy, and in an industry that seems to be producing largely vampire stories, it was so refreshing to not only identify with these teenagers, but really grow fond of each and every one.


Author:  Condoleezza Rice
ISBN:  978-0-385-73879-8

As a person who has been a fan of Ms. Rice's for a long time now, I can only tell you that my admiration for this woman has increased ten-fold after reading this story.


Author:  Salman Rushdie
ISBN:  978-0-679-46336-8

The adventure is absolutely stunning, and the extraordinary objects and scenery that Mr. Rushdie creates will live in your minds and hearts for a very long time to come.  Enjoy!
 


Author:  Vicki Myron
ISBN:  978-0-5259-5186-5

No one, including the author, knew that Dewey would become beyond famous – a little kitten who, on a fifteen-degree below zero night in Spencer, Iowa, was slipped through the book return slot at the Spencer Public Library.  And, from that point on, became the most loved animal in America.  Well…certainly in Iowa.
 


Author: David Michael Slater
ISBN:  978-1-933767-03-1

The first two books in this series “Had me at Hello.”  However, the most intriguing and wonderfully exciting part about that statement is the fact that the third book in this series…is even BETTER


Author: Kaitlyn Dunnett
ISBN:  978-07582-3879-5

The dialogue is so much fun, the puzzle is mystifying and quite impossible to solve until the very end - which is always a plus, and the author, as always, adds that touch of romance between Liss and Dan to cover all bases for all readers’ interests.  Enjoy!


Author:  Isis Crawford
ISBN:  978-0-7582-4738-4

These books are extremely fun “who-dun-its” with great action, well-written puzzles, and dialogue a reader will not soon forget



Author:  Zoe Archer

ISBN:  978-1-4201-0681-7

 The Blades of the Rose series, over time, has truly given readers some of the most unforgettable heroes and heroines that exist in literature, and this new novel is no exception.





Author:  Rebecca Barnhouse
ISBN:  978-0-375-86193-2

Beowulf fans?  Lend me your ears!  This is a fantastic retelling of the end of the Old British poem that readers love


Author:  Jacquelyn Frank
ISBN:  978-1-4201-0985-6

With every series that Ms. Frank has offered to her legions of fans, she seems to have gotten better and better with each one (if that’s at all possible).  I, for one, have always been a fan of the stories that make up the series’The Nightwalkers; The Shadowdwellers; and, The Gatherers.  Each and every character has been unforgettable and the passion that they inspire truly makes for great stories!

 
Author:  Matt de la Peña
ISBN:  978-0-385-73827-9

It is extremely welcoming to have an author on the market who wants to teach love, faith, and even romance in the face of pain and adversity without using 'glamazons' on Rodeo Drive, or vampires in the rainy Northwest to do it.  This is a book for everyone who needs some answers, love, and, most especially, understanding.


Author:  Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
ISBN:  978-0-375-86659-3
 
As a reader who simply loved Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which was also written by these two fabulous authors, I was beyond excited to find this new novel in my mailbox.


Author: HelenKay Dimon
ISBN:  978-0-7582-2909-0
 
This fantastic romance author is back, and back with a vengeance.


Author: David Gilman
ISBN: 978-0-385-73561-2

For any reader who fell in love with the Danger Zone Series when the first novel was released (The Devil’s Breath), boy are you going to be as happy as I am that the sequel has arrived. These books zone in on so many completely cool subjects like eco-science, religion, murder, X-treme sports, etc., that you wonder when Jason Bourne or Indiana Jones, even, is going to appear.



Author: Laura McNeal
ISBN: 978-0-375-84973-2

You know that old line, you had me at hello? Well, this author had me on page one when she introduced me to our main character fifteen-year-old Pearl DeWitt, and her amazing eyes. You see, she has a genetic trait called heterochromia which means she has one blue eye and the other brown…and the amazingly beautiful and horrific things she sees with them made this book a truly perfect solo-debut novel for this amazing writer


Author: Andy Mulligan
ISBN: 978-0-385-75214-5

This author has given YA fiction a whole new look with this breathtakingly real adventure that will, literally, make you extremely happy with your own lot in life


Author: Catherine Ryan Hyde
ISBN: 978-0-375-86665-4





Author: A.S. King
ISBN: 978-0-375-86586-2

This book is a great young adult read, but I also highly recommend it to parents who perhaps want and need a better understanding of how their actions affect their children and their children’s future. Enjoy!





Author: Shirley Rousseau Murphy
ISBN: 978061124006



I have been a huge fan of these mysteries for years. Not only have I enjoyed the intricate plots, but I also love the cats as they make the human beings wake up and see the clues that are right in front of them.




Author: Sophie Littlefield
ISBN: 978-0-385-73852-1

This book is excellent from the word, go. It is so nice, after all the vampires, to have a truly mystical story in my hands that will lead young adult readers into a whole new world that they’ve never even had one inkling existed. This series truly has its place right beside Fallen on my bookshelf


Author: Wendelin Van Draanen
ISBN: 978-0-375-86107-9

Between Andi and Alexandrine, I was so immersed in this novel that I most assuredly have to add this book to my Top Ten of 2010


Author: Charles Fox (Foreword by Roberta Flack)
ISBN:  978-0-8108-6991-2
 
I not only recommend this wonderful story (with great pictures, by the way) to musicians, composers, and people desperately trying to make their musical dreams come true, but I also recommend this bio to all readers in general

Author: Paula Munier

Bravo to this author!  She has touched my heart and soul.  Everyone should have a copy of this book on their shelves, a dog in every kitchen…and a chicken in every pot J

ISBN:  978-0-615-32516-3



Author: Caroline B. Cooney

ISBN: 978-0-385-73867-5

Again, Ms. Cooney has hit the nail on the head and offered a YA story that will draw readers in and, perhaps, teach parents a huge lesson about the real meaning of loving and trusting their offspring.  Another fantastic job!
