New Books Out This Week 9/24

These are the new books I'm obsessing over this week:
By: J.K. Rowling
The mother of all new releases.  J.K.'s first non-Harry Potter book!  Oh yes I will be reading it.
By: Marni Bates
The author of Awkward.  This one's about a girl being the pretend girlfriend of a guy in a famous band.  Sounds CUTE!!
By: Gena Showalter
Love the cover... sounds pretty awesome too!  Alice is fighting zombies alongside a bad boy.
By: Ned Vizzini
From the author of It's Kind of a Funny Story.  The cover is giving me A Night at the Museum vibe.  It's about a boy obsessed with a Dungeons and Dragons-type thing and when he goes to summer camp, he ends up in the game.
By: Francine Prose
This one sounds deliciously creepy!  Ghosts, peculiar children, isolated island!!  Eeee, sounds like something not to read at night :)
By: Tonya Hurley
By the author of Ghostgirl books.  This is a new series about saints and martyrs.  Creepy cover!!  I didn't LOVE ghostgirl, but I was just thinking about rereading it the other day to give it a fair shot, so this one's a maybe.
By: C.K. Kelly Martin
Another one of my fav. contemp. authors is going sci-fi.  But it's ok cause most of this book is set in 1985 which is rad!  You gotta love the 80's, and this one is about a girl who travels from a distant future to '85 and doesn't know her former life.  She comes into contact with someone she recognises and it starts opening doors to the truth...
Well you KNOW I'm getting The Casual Vacancy! (although it may not live up to the hype, but I hope it does!!)  These other ones have potential as well.  What are you excited about?
