On Sale Now : New Releases

This week I found six new releases. I added a three titles that were released earlier in the year, to give the feature a little body.

Skit-Scat Raggedy Cat: Ella Fitzgerald by Roxane Orgill - illus. by Sean Qualls - my review

Floating on Mama's Song by Laura Lacamara - illus by Yuyi Morales - gracias La Bloga

Doggy Slippers by Jorge Lujan illus by Isol

Brontorina by James Howes - illus by Randy Cecil

They Called Themselves the kkk by Susan Campbell Bartoletti - This is one of the best children's non fiction books released this year. Its also one many adults will appreciate. Will review soon.

Come Fall by A.C.E Bauer - One of the main characters is of South Asian decent. I know this thanks to Charlotte's review

Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala this YA novel features a diverse cast of characters. I know this thanks to author Mitali Perkins interview with the author.

Black Hole Sun by David Macinnis Gill - This has a very nice blurb from Suzanne Collins on the back. Making it a great recommendation for readers who are looking for something new when they finish Mockingjay.*

Saving Sky by Diane Stanley - Can't believe I forgot to include this one. I love this cover and the excerpt.

Meridian by Amber Kizer. paperback release. my review. This was one of my favorites from last year.

I won't be reading Mockingjay until this weekend. I am not all over social media so I don't have worry about spoilers.

goodness--Black Hole Sun sounds like a good one; I hadn't heard of it before. And I need to read Meridian too...

Charlotte - Gill's title reminds me of the rock song from the 90's. So I finally had to listen to it again. And Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden is just as good now.

Edi - I want more books with diverse cast as well. I am very happy Mitali Perkins did that interview or else I would've never know. And the book looks good.
