New Books!

Looking for something new to read? A few books that have already gotten a lot of buzz come out TODAY!

Fire by Kristin Cashore

She is the last of her kind... It is not a peaceful time in the Dells. In King City, the young King Nash is clinging to the throne, while rebel lords in the north and south build armies to
unseat him. War is coming. And the mountains and forest are filled with spies and thieves. This is where Fire lives, a girl whose beauty is impossibly irresistible and who can control the minds of everyone around her.

This fantasy novel is a considered a prequel to Graceling, but you don't have to have read it to pick up Fire.

Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

You may have read Scott Westerfeld's other books - Uglies, Pretties, Peeps, etc. - but this is a brand-new sci-fi trilogy. The first book, Leviathan, takes place in an alternate 1914 Europe. Fifteen-year-old Austrian Prince Alek, on the run from the Clanker Powers who are attempting to take over the globe using mechanical machinery, forms an uneasy alliance with Deryn who, disguised as a boy to join the British Air Service, is learning to fly genetically-engineered beasts.

While these two are processing to get out on the shelves asap, be sure to get your hold on them today. And in the meantime, here's a few other new books out recently that you may have missed...

by Gordon Korman

Lonely after a midsummer move to a new town, sixteen-year-old high-school quarterback Marcus Jordan becomes friends with a retired professional linebacker who is great at training him, but whose childish behavior keeps Marcus in hot water.

Going Bovine by Libba Bray

Libba Bray was well-known for her Victorian-gothic Gemma Doyle trilogy. Her newest novel, Going Bovine, is nothing like her other books. Cameron Smith, a disaffected sixteen year-old who, after being diagnosed with Creutzfeld Jakob's (aka mad cow) disease, sets off on a road trip with a death-obsessed video gaming dwarf he meets in the hospital in an attempt to find a cure.

These (and A LOT more!) are available at the Teen Zone in the library. Stop by and pick them up today! Have you already read any of these? Let me know what you think!
