Flying High, Flying By!

Where did September go? Seriously! Where?

September sure was busy, in my world as well as in the kids book world! Get ready for a long post... there is so much to write about this month.

Check out these just-out, ready-to-be-read books:

Kelly Bingham's Circle, Square, Moose  is out!
The second in the Moose book series, Circle Square, Moose is getting starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews, Publisher's Weekly, and more. 
Check it out:

Michelle Knudsen's Evil Librarian hit the shelves this month too--her debut YA novel. This Kirkus Review put it best: "Forget paranormal romance; this horror-humor-romance pastiche is where those in search of hot nonhumans should set their sights." Congrats, Mikki!

Lindsey Lane's debut, Evidence of Things Not Seen,  is a new release this week. It looks great!
Check out the trailer here.
What others are saying: 

"...As original as it is compelling, Evidence of Things Not Seen captures the wild pulse of a town dealing with loss and moving on in the backwards-forwards leaning way of life. A gem of a first novel." 
-Alan Cumyn, author of TILT
and the OWEN SKYE series

 Shawn Stout's newest PENELOPE CRUMB book hit the shelves this month, too! Who can resist our sweet little  Penelope Crumb, as she tries to enlist the moon's help in solving her problems? Congratulations, Shawn! Check out all the PENELOPE CRUMB books here.

Did you see the trailer in my last blog for Julie Berry's The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place? It's now available in print. Mystery, mayhem and adventure, all found here! Happy book birthday, Julie Berry!

Caroline Carlson's second book in The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates series, The Terror of the Southlands is also newly published this month. (Didn't I say it was an exciting month?) For all your little pirate fanatics - find more adventures here.

And last but not least, Jessica Powers has a non-fiction picture book out, Colors of the Wind: The Story of Blind Artist and Champion Runner George Mendoza.

Isn't that cover gorgeous?

What others are saying:

"Colors of the Wind is a wonderful book stocked full of beautiful paintings and information about George Mendoza's life as a blind artist and athlete.  When I think of diversity in literature, a book like Colors of the Wind seems to provide a great example for children.  It illustrates the things that one person can accomplish."

Just a sample of good books now available... next up, some GREAT news from one of my classmates! But that deserves a new blog post--stay tuned!  

In my world:
-Hot and heavy into revisions! 
-Reading - lots of good stuff this week.
-Happy that Big Bang Theory is back.
-"Family Weekend" at my daughter's college... fun!

Have a great weekend!
