Tuesday Tomorrow

The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
Published by: Doubleday Books
Publication Date: September 1st, 2009
Format: Hardcover, 528 Pages
To Buy

The official patter:
"Dan Brown’s new novel, the eagerly awaited follow-up to his #1 international phenomenon, The Da Vinci Code, which was the bestselling hardcover adult novel of all time with 81 million copies in print worldwide, will be published in the U.S. and Canada by Doubleday on September 15, 2009.

THE LOST SYMBOL will have a first printing of 5 million copies, and it will once again feature Dan Brown’s unforgettable protagonist, Robert Langdon. Brown’s longtime editor, Jason Kaufman, Vice President and Executive Editor at Doubleday said, "Nothing ever is as it first appears in a Dan Brown novel. This book’s narrative takes place in a twelve-hour period, and from the first page, Dan’s readers will feel the thrill of discovery as they follow Robert Langdon through a masterful and unexpected new landscape. THE LOST SYMBOL is full of surprises."
Dan Brown’s popularity continues to grow. The film of The Da Vinci Code was a #1 box office smash when it was released by Columbia Pictures in May 2006 with Ron Howard directing and Tom Hanks starring as Robert Langdon. Box office receipts were $758 million. The same team will release Angels and Demons theatrically worldwide on May 15, 2009."

Yeah, so this book just screams No. 1 New York Times Bestseller. Even if you won't admit it you've probably read The Da Vinci Code and will probably pick this one up. Though in good news, this book will probably save Doubleday from declaring bankruptcy.

Forest Born by Shannon Hale

Format: Hardcover, 400 Pages
To Order

"Rin is sure that something is wrong with her…something really bad. Something that is keeping her from feeling at home in the Forest homestead where she’s lived all her life. Something that is keeping her from trusting herself with anyone at all. When her brother Razo returns from the city for a visit, she accompanies him to the palace, hoping that she can find peace away from home. But war has come to Bayern again, and Rin is compelled to join the queen and her closest allies—magical girls Rin thinks of as the Fire Sisters—as they venture into the Forest toward Kel, the land where someone seems to want them all dead. Many beloved Bayern characters reappear in this story, but it is Rin’s own journey of discovering how to balance the good and the bad in herself that drives this compelling adventure."

The newest Bayern book by Shannon Hale is also finally released. While not my favorite in the series (read my review), I'm happy to see my favorite characters return once more.

Shannon will also be making appearances for this book, so make sure to go a check her out if you have the chance, she's an awesome public speaker!
