Lots of Star Wars books coming our way this week, with the movie release only a few days away. Let’s take a look:
Books for Kids
Chewie and the Porgs – I can’t find much of a description for this one, but it looks adorable. I’m curious to see these Porgs in the movie and find out more about them.
The Superstar Story of the Harlem Globetrotters – I love the History of Fun Stuff (and Science of Fun Stuff) line of early readers. They are fantastic for young kids who are skilled readers. Also great for adults to read to curious kids. This particular one focuses on the Harlem Globtrotters.
The Fantastic and Terrible Fame of Classroom 13 – Book 3 in the Classroom 13 series. This time, the kids have a chance to be FAMOUS! But some things are just too good to be true. This sounds like a fun series for new chapter book readers.
Gimme Shelter – Book 5 in the hilarious Chicken Squad series. This quirky group of chicks is back, this time they are trying to build a storm shelter, but they find some unusual things along the way.
Books for Older Kids/Teens/Young Adults
Star Wars Cobalt Squadron – A new Last Jedi story for teens
Star Wars Rogue One Graphic Novel – The story of Rogue One in graphic novel form.
Star Wars The Last Jedi Cross-Sections – Take a closer look at the shops of The Last Jedi
Books for Adults
Bloodstains with Brontë – Book 2 in the Crimes with Classics series, after Arsenic with Austen (which was terrific!). This time, Emily is reading Brontë and finding parallels with the murder case in their midst. I loved the first book so much, this is at the top of my list for this week.
Case of Syrah Syrah – First in a new Wine Country mystery series starring a woman who runs a new business touring area wineries. When the leader of her latest tour group is found murdered, Taylor is a suspect. And the bodies continue to fall. I love trying out brand new mystery series. Looking forward to trying this one.
Ginger Snapped – Book 5 in the Spice Shop mystery series. Piper is prompted to action when local law enforcement – who has become a friend over the years – is suspected of murder.
Murder for the Books – First in the new Blue Ridge Library mystery series. This is an EXCELLENT book with several layers of mystery going on at once. I’ll be reviewing this one Wednesday. Be sure to check this one out.
Trouble with Murder – First in a new series. Trouble the cat is a big help to Colbie when she is suspected of the murder of the leader of the Sunnyside Power Moms. This was great, too. I’ll be reviewing this one next week.
Unnatural Causes – A doctor’s patient commits suicide with a prescription – one the doctor doesn’t remember writing. Then the suicide is deemed a murder. First in a new series. Sounds like a great mystery.
Art of Star Was The Last Jedi – Coffee table book of the art of the latest Star Wars film.
This Child of Faith: Raising a Spiritual Child in a Secular World (Dec 14) – Written along with a student who was in third grade at Sandy Hook on the day of the shooting. This releases on the 5th anniversary of the tragedy.
