Other Books Coming Out This Week:

This is a lot of books!!  I am so excited to see the Harry Potter Illustrated Edition in person.  I got a preview of it from Scholastic, but I want to see the real deal.  I'm also super pumped to read Carry On (and to meet Rainbow at a signing I'm going to), A Madness So Discreet, It's a Wonderful Death, Romancing the Dark in the City of Light, and We'll Never Be Apart.  I read My Secret to Tell and thought it was okay.  It didn't blow me away, but it was good-ish.
