Hey Readers, we’ve added about 25 new books to the library, pulling from the awesome selection on the Roundabout shelf! There are six (SIX!!) new Saga of Darren Shan, aka Cirque du Freak, books, as well as some awesome new series books, classics, and interesting nonfiction. Find the whole list here. Here’s a sample:
Darren Shan has been described as Stephen King for kids. If you’ve never tried this author before, now’s a great time since you can keep feeding your obsession with all of these new titles: Vampire Blood Trilogy (contains books 1, 2 and 3); Hunters of the Dusk (book 7); Killers of the Dawn (book 9); Vampire Destiny Trilogy (contains books 10, 11 and 12); Lord of the Shadows (book 11); Sons of Destiny (book 12, the last book in the series!).
From Phillip Pullman, try Count Karlstein: “In a spooky tale of fugitive orphans, misplaced revenge, and spirits on the prowl, the award-winning author of The Golden Compass…blends humor and horror to create a fast-and-funny supernatural thriller.”
If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late by Pseudonymous Bosch is Book 2 in The Secret Series, looks secretly fun – School Library Journal says “Fans of Lemony Snicket...will enjoy this slightly more fleshed-out read.”Fans of Garth Nix should hurry and check out Grim Tuesday, from a new-to-us series The Keys to the Kingdom. We acquired Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, which is on the E8LA and E9LB reading list!
