Falling for Some Great Fall Reads

This week, we moved servers for our websites, which is always an experience that sounds easier than it is. As a result, some things are not working quite right, and there were a few hours that you might not have been able to “find us” during the week. We hope to have all our contest entry forms (including Word of Mouth) and our poll and question pages fixed as quickly as possible. First, we are trying to figure out why they are not performing right! We apologize for the lateness of this newsletter, and we thank you in advance for your patience. In the meantime, we’ve set up a few workarounds for our current Book Club and Grab Bag contests so you can still enter.

September 25th through October 2nd is
Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read. This is the time when we get to think about, and celebrate, all the books that we love, even though they might tackle ideas that are controversial. There are many different reasons why a particular book might be challenged, but in the end it's our librarians who fight so that you can read them. This year, the Twilight series was listed as the fifth most challenged title! Click here to get involved and support the books you love. Also, be sure to join our Facebook discussion on some of your favorite banned books.


Speaking of banned books, did you know that THE COMPLETE FAIRY TALES OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM makes the list? That's right, fairy tales haven't always been so sugary sweet, and Cornelia Funke's new book RECKLESS kicks it old school, inspired by the original, pre-Disneyfied tales. Funke weaves a story with some seriously dark and dangerous creatures, and though you shouldn't expect a happy ending, you can bet it'll be a good one.

We are THRILLED to announce the launch of our very first Book O'Lantern Contest! Between now and October 22nd, you can enter to win a Halloween-themed tote filled with 14 spine-chilling titles, featuring everything from a supernatural butt-kicking heroine to a support group for reformed vampires. Click here for all the frightening contest details.


On a different note, we have a new Book Club Giveaway! We will be awarding up to 20 copies of THE THINGS A BROTHER KNOWS by Dana Reinhardt to one lucky book club. The book tells the story of Levi Katznelson's struggle having a relationship with his older brother who has just returned from war in the Middle East. It's a great book that just blew me away when I read it, and it's sure to generate tons of discussion in your group. You can read an interview with the author here. To learn more about the book, check out our review and an excerpt, and then be sure to enter!

We also have lots of new special features for you. For those looking for a fantasy fix, THE EXILED QUEEN is the book for you. After captivating audiences with THE DEMON KING (read an excerpt here), Cinda Williams Chima returns with the second installment of her wildly successful Seven Realms series. The book follows Han Alister and Princess Raisa as they each begin their own epic journey towards Oden's Ford, where they hope to start new lives after fleeing the land of the Fells. Be sure to read the review, an excerpt of the book, and our interview with the author.

Looking for more fantasy? PLAIN KATE by Erin Bow is sure to do the trick. When Plain Kate's father dies, leaving her without family or friends, Kate becomes the target of superstition and, quite possibly, magic. Then she sells the only thing she has --- her shadow --- and winds up more alone than before, which she didn't think was possible. Read our review and an excerpt that will leave you wanting more, and our interview with the author.

We're also featuring TOUCH BLUE by Cynthia Lord. When Tess's family takes in Aaron, a foster child, it becomes clear that he is special: he has strong musical talent. But after his birth mother reconnects with him, Aaron is conflicted. Will he stay with Tess's family, or will he search out his mother? Don't forget to read our review and an excerpt.

Rounding out our new features is DAY OF DELIVERANCE by Johnny O'Brien, whose second book in the Jack Christie series is now available. In it, Jack and his buddy Angus must travel back in time to stop Dr. Pendleshape's latest plot to rewrite history: joining the Spanish Armada and assassinating Queen Elizabeth I. Read our review, an excerpt and our exclusive interview with the author.

We continue to feature THE CRUISERS, the gritty new novel by bestselling YA heavyweight Walter Dean Myers, which follows the trials and tribulations of a group of gifted students with a knack for getting themselves into trouble. To learn more about the book, you can read our review and an excerpt, and check out our interview, where Myers talks about what inspired him to write about a place like Da Vinci Academy.

Looking for a great book that is sure to generate lots of discussion in your reading group? Then check out THE THINGS A BROTHER KNOWS by Dana Reinhardt, which tells the story of Levi, who must deal with his older brother Boaz's return from war in the Middle East. Instead of being a happy occasion, Boaz’s post-traumatic stress disorder makes it impossible for Levi to have anything remotely resembling a brotherly relationship with him.

Teenreads.com is giving away up to 20 copies of THE THINGS A BROTHER KNOWS to one lucky book club. The deadline for entries is Wednesday, November 17th at noon ET.


THE THINGS A BROTHER KNOWS by Dana Reinhardt (Fiction)

Things have been on hold since Boaz left. With the help of his two best friends, Levi has fumbled his way through high school, weary of his role as little brother to the hero.

 

But when Boaz walks through the front door after his tour of duty is over, Levi knows there’s something wrong. Boaz is home, safe. But Levi knows that his brother is not the same.

 

Maybe things will never return to normal. Then Boaz leaves again, and this time Levi follows him, determined to understand who his brother was, who he has become, and how to bring him home again.

After captivating audiences with THE DEMON KING, fantasy author Cinda Williams Chima returns with THE EXILED QUEEN, the second installment of her wildly successful Seven Realms series that follows Han Alister and Princess Raisa as they each begin their own epic journey towards Oden’s Ford, where they hope to start new lives after fleeing the land of the Fells. In this interview with Teenreads.com’s Melanie Smith, Chima reveals how she came up with the ideas for two separate fantasy series, elaborating on the tools and tricks that have kept her on task and how her transcontinental travels inspired the volcanic mountains of the Fells.

For Kate and her village have fallen on hard times. Kate’s father has died, leaving her alone in the world. And a mysterious fog now covers the countryside, ruining crops and spreading feat of hunger and sickness. The townspeople are looking for someone to blame, and their eyes have fallen on Kate.

But Tess is coming to know that it’s not always that simple. The state of Maine plans to shut down her island’s schoolhouse, which would force Tess’s family to move to the mainland --- and Tess to leave the only home she has ever known. Fortunately, the islanders have a plan, too: increase the number of students by having several families take in foster children. So now Tess and her family are taking a chance on Aaron, a 13-year-old trumpet player who has been bounced from home to home. And Tess needs a plan of her own --- and all the luck she can muster. Will Tess’s wish come true, or will her luck run out?
