The official description:
"Trust Dreams.
Trust your heart,
and trust your story.

A renowned storyteller whose words have transported readers to magical realms and an acclaimed illustrator of lushly imagined fairy-tale landscapes guide a traveler safely through lands unknown and yet strangely familiar . . .

. . . and home again."

Neil Gaiman + Charles Vess = Must Buy! While these two are amazingly fabulous on their own, Neil Gaiman being the cult writer of the moment, while Vess is the best illustrator today drawing in his own unique yet Arthur Rackhamy way (if you haven't checked it out yet, make sure to see his book Drawing Down the Moon) add them together, like with The Blueberry Girl, and you have perfect awesomeness! Don't believe me? Check out this awesome book trailer!

The official patter:
"When friends stop trusting each other, Darkness is there to fan the flames….

Things have turned black at the House of Night. Zoey Redbird’s soul has shattered. With everything she’s ever stood for falling apart, and a broken heart making her want to stay in the Otherworld forever, Zoey’s fading fast. It’s seeming more and more doubtful that she will be able pull herself back together in time to rejoin her friends and set the world to rights. As the only living person who can reach her, Stark must find a way to get to her. But how? He will have to die to do so, the Vampyre High Council stipulates. And then Zoey will give up for sure. There are only 7 days left…

Enter BFF Stevie Rae. She wants to help Z but she has massive problems of her own. The rogue Red Fledglings are acting up, and this time not even Stevie Rae can protect them from the consequences. Her kinda boyfriend, Dallas, is sweet but too nosy for his own good. The truth is, Stevie Rae’s hiding a secret that might be the key to getting Zoey home but also threatens to explode her whole world.

In the middle of the whole mess is Aphrodite: ex-Fledgling, trust-fund baby, total hag from Hell (and proud of it). She’s always been blessed (if you could call it that) with visions that can reveal the future, but now it seems Nyx has decided to speak through her with the goddess’s own voice, whether she wants it or not. Aphrodite’s loyalty can swing a lot of different ways, but right now Zoey’s fate hangs in the balance.

Three girls… playing with fire… if they don’t watch out, everyone will get Burned."

A new House of Night Novel... you so know you're going to go out and buy this!

The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell
Published by: Blazer + Bray
Publication Date: April 27th, 2010
Format: Hardcover, 400 Pages
To Buy

The official patter:
"The Carrie Diaries is the coming-of-age story of one of the most iconic characters of our generation.

Before Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw was a small-town girl who knew she wanted more. She's ready for real life to start, but first she must navigate her senior year of high school. Up until now, Carrie and her friends have been inseparable. Then Sebastian Kydd comes into the picture, and a friend's betrayal makes her question everything.

With an unforgettable cast of characters, The Carrie Diaries is the story of how a regular girl learns to think for herself and evolves into a sharp, insightful writer. Readers will learn about her family background, how she found her writing voice, and the indelible impression her early friendships and relationships left on her. Through adventures both audacious and poignant, we'll see what brings Carrie to her beloved New York City, where her new life begins."

Clever Candace... not only will you get your current followers, by making this a kind of YA diary tell all, you might get some new teen readers. Trying to turn this into a Twilight Mom teen bonding experience, it's so cute, kind of desperate, but I think I'm buying into it.


Ohhh, I want all of these books!

I want the Gaiman book as well. I think I've given up in the HoN series, though.

It's a sad day when you give up on a series, I've had that happen a few times.
