New Releases 5/6

New releases this week include:

The Host by Stephenie Meyer - Her adult debut and it totally rocks! LOVED IT! See post below for synopsis and go buy the book!
The Tenth Gift by Jane Johnson - a 'book about a book.' I blogged about this one earlier this week as well. It was a great literary tale with elements of mystery, adventure, and romance. Another great one.
From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris - #8 in the Sookie Stackhouse series takes place just after Hurricane Katrina. 
Careless in Red by Elizabeth George - the return of Thomas Linley (after With No One as Witness)
Phamton Prey by John Sandford - the latest Lucas Davenport mystery. This (along with Harris above) is a series that is going to have to go on my TBR list. I had read the first title, Rules of Prey, years ago, but Sandford is consistently garnering praise from his fellow authors. I'll be rereading Rules asap, guaranteed.
Skeletons of the Feast by Chris Bohjalian - WWII lit-fic that's also going on my "wish list."

PS I Love You based on the novel by Cecelia Ahern. It's not as good as the book, but Gerard Butler and *sigh* Jeffrey Dean Morgan are totally hot and Hillary Swank is really cute in the lead role.
I'm Not There the Bob Dylan bio pick.
