Because My "I Can't Wait To Read This!" List Isn't Long Enough...

Some exciting new books out this week:

Check out Trent Reedy's newest release, IF YOU'RE READING THIS...
From the author of WORDS IN THE DUST and DIVIDED WE FALL: A heartwarming book about a son reconnecting with the father he lost in Afghanistan.

Mike was seven when his father was killed in mysterious circumstances in Afghanistan. Eight years later, the family still hasn't recovered: Mike's mom is overworked and overprotective; his younger sister Mary feels no connection to the father she barely remembers; and in his quest to be "the man of the family," Mike knows he's missing out on everyday high school life.

Then, out of the blue, Mike receives a letter from his father -- the first of a series Dad wrote in Afghanistan, just in case he didn't come home, meant to share some wisdom with his son on the eve of Mike's 16th birthday.  (Check out GoodReads for more...)

And another VCFA grad's newest: 

Micol Ostow's AMITY:

Connor's family moves to Amity to escape shady business deals. Ten years later, Gwen's family moves to Amity for a fresh start after she's recovered from a psychotic break.

But something is not right about this secluded house. Connor's nights are plagued with gore-filled dreams of demons and destruction. Dreams he kind of likes. Gwen has lurid visions of corpses that aren't there and bleeding blisters that disappear in the blink of an eye. She knows Amity is evil and she must get her family out, but who would ever believe her? (More on GoodReads!)

In my world:
- I am working on revisions for my WIP... slowly but surely... 
- I won a five book set (Believing Magic) in a book give-away on GoodReads! Thanks to Shane Shelton - I can't wait to read them!  
- I had a perfect beach day Tuesday. Ahhh.... 

See you soon!
