Library Loot (1)

Since this is a book blog and all (didn't you know?!), I figured that it would be fun to share with you guys what you can find on the shelves at my library branches. We'll call the first one "Bucketpunch", which is where I am the manager, and Bookboy is my assistant. I am the assistant at the library branch in "Mayberry", which will also be featured. I'm only going to highlight the middle grade and young adult books, being as they are the main ones I personally select. Anyway, I'll try this out for about a month.

Today, I'm going to introduce you to the New Book Area in Bucketpunch, which has the books we've received for our branch in the past six months (unless we run out of room, then it's 3-5). Here are our newest arrivals:

The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy
Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes by Jonathan Auxier
Nerd Camp by Elissa Brent Weissman
Shadows Cast by Stars by Catherine Knutsson
The Vindico by Wesley King
Little Lost Tiger by Jonathan London (Okay, it's not MG or YA, but I thought it was cute!)

I'd say that was a pretty fantastic haul for our library. Since this is a new thing, here is a glance at the books that have already been sitting on our NBA (new book area) shelves:

  2. Lots of great books. :) I've been loving the middle grade books being released lately. Very interested in checking out The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom and Storybound.

  3. Wow...I wish your library was my library. LOL. Those are some awesome titles. Especially The Book of Wonders, The False Prince, and Jessica Rules the Darkside.

  4. I was pleased to see my latest book, Football (Science Behind Sports) shown in Bucketpunch. But it's listed as being by Jessica Guess McKerley and that's incorrect. It's by me--Jennifer Guess McKerley. Thanks for including my book.
