New Releases 9/16

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson - A fabulous first mystery from a brilliant man. The book is to be followed by two more - already bestsellers in Sweden. Unfortunately, Larsson passed away in 2004. I love this book and can't recommend it highly enough!
Lost Girls by George D. Shuman - Latest in the Sherry Moore series and deals with human trafficking. Brutal.
The Killing Circle by Andrew Pyper - an interesting read similar in subject to Jincy Willett's Writing Class, but only in the beginning! Loved it.
In Hovering Flight by Joyce Hinnefeld - a mother daughter tale that's also the top Indie Bound Indie Next pick of the month. 
The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory - it's Mary, Queen of Scots turn
Brisingr by Christopher Paolini - the long awaited third installment of The Inheritance Cycle.
Paul of Dune by Brian Herbert -  a must-read for Dune fans. Herbert's son is finally telling the tale that immediately follows Dune.

"Lost Girls" and "Brisingr" are being processed at our library now. I'm on the waiting list.

You know, I've not read any of the Paolini books. My little sister loves them, though, and I think they're the ones that really got her into reading in the first place, something I'll always be thankful for. She's got a b-day coming up and I may just have to get this one for her if she doesn't convince mom to get it first.
