A new week means a look at all the new books that are coming out. I've made a list of some of my favorites in different genres and for different ages. I love making this weekly favorite list....except my to-be-read list keeps growing and I will never get through all of them. I wish there was more time to read!

Weekly Favorite New Books in children's YA Adult fiction and nonfiction
Join me for a look as some of my favorite books coming out this week. You can find book suggestions for adult reads, little kids, middle grade readers, and young adult books too. There are a few books that I'm really looking forward to reading!

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth is my most anticipated read from this week. I'm actually going to an author event with her next week and can't wait! Indelible seems like it would be intriguing. My girls can't decide if they want to get the new Story Thieves or Bad series book first.
