New Releases!

Stop by and check out all the new books we've got for you at the library! A few highlights that we personally recommend: 

Locomotive by Brian Floca is a children's picture book that just recently won the Caldecott Medal from the American Library Association.

It is the summer of 1869, and trains, crews, and family are traveling together, riding America's brand-new transcontinental railroad. These pages come alive with the details of the trip and the sounds, speed, and strength of the mighty locomotives; the work that keeps them moving; and the thrill of travel from plains to mountain to ocean.

Come hear the hiss of the steam, feel the heat of the engine, watch the landscape race by. Come ride the rails, come cross the young country! [goodreads]

House of Hades by Rick Riordan is the highly anticipated fourth book in the Heroes of Olympus series. 

At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

They have no choice. If the demigods don’t succeed, Gaea’s armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus. [goodreads]

Hyperbole and a Half is a book of comics about Allie Brosh's life, also seen on her hilarious and poignant blog

 If you're familiar with Allie Brosh's popular blog of the same title, this book probably needs no introduction. If you're not: the blog, and the stories selected for this book, are a wonderful mix of anecdotes and introspection with basic MS Paint drawings. Sometimes wildly hilarious, sometimes painfully relevant (and sometimes both at once), this book is full of stories that you'll be able to relate to. Even if you're familiar with her blog, there are a few new stories printed just for the book that makes this worth picking up. [goodreads]

 

Hot off the presses is The Chase, Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg's newest collaboration, second in the Fox and O'Hare series.

Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, New York Times bestselling authors of The Heist, return in this action-packed, exciting adventure featuring master con artist Nicolas Fox and die-hard FBI agent Kate O’Hare. And this time around, things go from hot to nuclear when government secrets are on the line. Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, and the only woman to ever capture his attention, Special Agent Kate O’Hare. Together they’ll go undercover to swindle and catch the world’s most wanted—and untouchable—criminals. [goodreads]
