Bookstore Beat: Mid-June 2011 Report

Mid-June Bookstore BeatSummer is here, and Posman customers are coming in to pick up not only the new releases, but also older titles that they might have missed during the course of a busy year. So here are some recommendations for new titles titles—and some you might have missed.

In contemporary, it’s small-town or beach books, like Robyn Carr’s Harvest Moon, or Lisa Dale’s Slow Dancing on Price’s Pier. Customers who enjoy these books might want to pick up Stephanie Bond’s newest series, which started with Baby Drive South. Robin Wells’s RITA nominated title Still The One might also be a good fit in this category.

Just Like Heaven by Julia QuinnIn historical, both Elizabeth Boyle’s Lord Langley’s Back in Town and Julia Quinn’s  Just Like Heaven (predictably!) are selling really well. But Jennifer Ashley’s Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage and Mary Balogh’s Mistress Duet, (More than A Mistress’ and No Man’s Mistress, older titles packaged together) are great books to consider in preparation for future connected books releasing in August.

In paranormal, it’s split between Nalini Singh’s Kiss of Snow or books such as Lynsay Sands The Reluctant Vampire. (And, of course, it’s safe to assume that Laurell K. Hamilton’s Hit List—which is out today—will be a big draw this month.) Those who are searching for comedy in their paranormal might want to pick up Vicki Lewis Thompson’s A Werewolf in Manhattan’ or Christine Warren’s Black Magic Woman. On the darker side, readers might want to investigate Elizabeth Vaughan’s WarCry, the newest installment in the series that started with WarPrize (a May re-release). Readers also might want to read Ava Gray’s Skin series, starting with Skin Game in preparation for the release of the next volume in the series, Skin Dive, next month. 

 Speaking of next month, remember to take the time to browse the shelves for hidden gems, enjoy the beginning of summer and come back at the end of the month to find out what you should be watching out for in July.

Happy reading and enjoy!

For June, may I pimp promote one of my favorite authors? Mercedes Lackey is coming out with "Beautry and The Werewolf", part of her 500 kingdoms series. I'm very much looking forward to this one.
