New Releases Tuesday

Tuesday's are the day you can find those much anticipated new releases from your favorite authors! And today I have 4 that I can't wait to share with you... Dystopian, Mystery, Courtroom thriller & Adventure.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth. Have you been reading the Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth!? Allegiant is Book 3, the long anticipated final book to the series.... and it is finally out!!!
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
This is dystopian at its' best! Here are the links to grab a copy...

                  Available in Hardcover, Kindle or Nook.

Next, The Goldfinch by Donna Tart... a haunted odyssey through present day    
America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity. It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a thirteen-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.  As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love-and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.

I have read so many great pre-publication reviews about The Goldfinch. This sounds like it's going to be the book everyone is going to want to read! Here are the links for the Hardcover (which is just $11.68 on Amazon right now), Kindle and Nook!

Sycamore Row by John Grisham... Now we return to that famous courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial-a trial that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history. Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row?

I use to be addicted to John Grisham novels. His courtroom novels are just a thrill to read, fast paced and gripping. Sycamore Row revisits the site of his first novel A Time to Kill, written in 1989. If you enjoy courtroom thrillers, you should enjoy this one! And if you missed A Time to Kill, it's available on Kindle for just $2.99! You do not need to read A Time to Kill first, Sycamore Row is a fresh story. Here are the links for Sycamore Row in Hardcover , Kindle and Nook. And here's the link for A Time to Kill on Kindle at that great price!

Outlaw by Ted Dekker... The story of how I, Julian Carter, and my precious two-year old son, Stephen, left Atlanta Georgia and found ourselves on a white sailboat, tossed about like a cork on a raging sea off of Australia's northern tip in 1963, is harrowing. But it pales in comparison to what happened deep in the jungle where I was taken as a slave by a savage tribe unknown to the world. Some places dwell in darkness so deep that even God seems to stay away. There, my mind was torn in two by the gods of the earth. There, one life ended so another could begin...  an epic adventure of two worlds that perhaps only he could write. Full of harrowing twists, sweeping violence, and wild love, Outlaw takes us beyond the skin of this world to another unseen.

Ted Dekker is such a diverse writer. I love his psychological thrillers, but he also writes Christian books. Whatever he writes, he knows how to tell a story! His thrillers have you at the edge of your seat and heart pounding. When I heard Ted Dekker was coming out with a new book, I was excited! And this sounds like a great adventure! This is on my wish list! Here are the links to get yourself a copy: It's available today in Hardcover , Kindle and Nook.

*Stop by next tuesday for some other great books being released Oct. 29th!
