I hope you find a book for yourself, a friend, or a young reader you know.
Favorite New Books Published this week January 24th

I've read some great early reviews for the new YA book City of Saints and Thieves. It's not the usual book that I would read, but it sounds intriguing.

If your kids love Goodnight Moon, they will probably love the newly published book, North, South, East, West, by the same author. When Margaret Wise Brown died, they found many book outlines and fully written books. This is one of those titles.

I've been on a dystopian kick lately, so Jadeite's Journey jumped out at me. Thankfully I was able to get a copy to review, so come back on Thursday to see what I think of it.
