Fall Into Reading by Tracy

The first day of Autumn is Saturday and this fall is going to be a great season for book releases. I’m eagerly awaiting new books in many of the series I’m following.

Already available in the Alameda County Library system is Traitor’s Chase, the sequel to The Last Musketeer by Stuart Gibbs. I loved the time travel aspect of the first book after getting into the Missing series and can’t wait to read this lastest adventure.

When our Reading Club for 9-13 year olds (recently dubbed Fiction Addiction) read Found, by Margaret Peterson Haddix, last year, I promptly picked up the other three books in the Missing series: Sent, Sabotaged, and Torn. The fifth book, Caught, is currently on order in our catalog.

One of the most popular series for kids is the 39 Clues. The follow-up series, Cahills vs. Vespers, is proving to be just as popular. If you want to read book 4, Shatterproof, place your hold now.

The most anticipated children’s book this Fall is Rick Riordan’s The Mark of Athena. The third installment in the Heroes of Olympus series, the sequel series to Percy Jackson and the Olympians, already has over 200 holds on it, so be sure and reserve your copy today.

Although not a children’s book (or a series) this time, the new one by J. K. Rowling, Casual Vacancy, is also set to come out this Fall. It’ll be hard to follow Harry Potter and this new novel promises to be very different from the series we all know and love.

What new books are you looking forward to in the coming months? Do you have a favorite you’ve read recently, or a classic you come back to over and over again? Let us know by coming to the Newark Library and adding a leaf to the “Fall Into Reading” display in the children’s picture book section.
