This Week in Books: 3/13/10-3/19/10

Young Adult:

FANG by James Patterson
Release Date: March 15, 2010

This is the next book in the Maximum Ride series, which is about a group of genetically modified kids with wings, that I have long enjoyed for it's quick, action-packed writing style. This is shaping up to be another good book, though the premise doesn't seem quite as interesting as some of the other books in the series.

Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1 by Stephanie Meyer, Young Kim (illustrator)
Release Date: March 16, 2010

Okay, I'm not really a fan of the Twilight series (and yes, I have read them), but I'm still excited to see how the graphic novel turns out. It definitely has the potential to be interesting, and could be really fun to read if the artwork is good.

Adult:
The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis
Release Date: March 15, 2010

This is a book about how the financial crisis in America really happened. From what I've read, it appears to be mostly character-driven--written like a novel, but telling a true story. Sounds excellent!

The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
Release Date: March 16, 2010

This is a novel about a woman who moves back to North Carolina to help understand her past a little bit better. It's magical realism, which is a genre I've never really read but find very intriguing.

The Queen's Lover by Vanora Bennett
Release Date: March 16, 2010

I love historical fiction, so this new book about 15th century Catherine de Valois looks perfect for me.
