Also, The Giver by Lois Lowry, The Fault in Our Stars by John Greene and Divergent by Veronica Roth.  Read them before they hit theaters and see what all the fuss is about!

A Big Week for Books!

There’s a lot happening in the book world this week.  Wally Lamb releases “We are Water”,  he’s a phenomenal writer and one of our favorites.  Then John Grisham publishes “Sycamore Row”  where Jake Brigance is the main character again, as he was in “A Time To Kill”.  And yes, we’ve stocked up on a “Time To Kill” if you want to refresh your memory.

Brad Meltzer tries his hand at non-fiction with “History Decoded: 10 Greatest Conspiracies of Our Time”  and Donna Tartt releases “The Goldfinch”–remember, she wrote  “The Secret History.”

And for our fantasy fans, Veronica Roth releases the third in her Divergent Series “Allegiant.”  Wow, what a week!!
