Other Books Coming Out This Week:

So I love the premise of The Moment of Truth series (the new Lauren Barnholdt book), but I've never read a book by her yet, so I'm a little weary.  We Are All Made of Molecules, Apple & Rain, and The Rise and Fall of the Gallivanters all sound like books I NEED.  What books are catching your eye??  Anything you've already read and can recommend?
