This week has so many options for wonderful new books to read. Are you looking for fantasy, space operas, mysteries, or even a sweet romance? I have suggestions for all of those and more! Click on the title of the book and it will take you to Amazon so you can read more about the book or for purchase. I hope you find some great new books to look forward to!

The books for YA this week have amazing covers, don't they? I remember seeing a video last month showing how they created the stunning cover for Rise of Fire (Reign of Shadows). I thought it was a digital drawing, but in fact a team arranged flowers and other items and took a picture. What talent!

There are a few books that I'm especially looking forward to this week. I love the decorating ideas in Modern Vintage Style and would love to incorporate them into my home.

The Sisters of Sugarcreek looks like a touching story of friendship, service, and healing after a tragedy.

 King's Cage (Red Queen) is at the top of my must-read list! The Red Queen series is one that someone on my Facebook page recommended and I loved it! I'm going to a book tour event on Friday and can't wait to get my hands on the book so I can find out what happens with Mare.
