What’s Sally Reading?

Finding Upcoming Titles Recently I was asked for some suggestions of how to find out about titles that are soon to be published, including subsequent titles in series.  Here is a good start: Naomi Bates wrote a blog posting about different sites that help readers keep up with teen lit, including recommendations and series.  Take a look at the sites she included, you may find a new favorite! Two sites mentioned in the comments section of her blog posting are FictFact; you can click on any day on the calendar to learn which titles are being published that day.  This web page appears to focus on teen titles in series.   Also mentioned is Recaptains, which gives a summary of the action in each title in an included series, great for reminding you what happened in book 2 before moving on to book 3. Becker197Quest by Aaron Becker is a wordless picture book and a follow-up to his 2013 title, Journey.  In Quest the girl and boy, each with their special crayon, encounter a king who also has a special crayon.  He gives them a map and some unusual items before being pulled back through a door.  The children follow and  they journey through this land trying to help the king.  Beautiful artwork and the solving of a puzzle will appeal to the intended audience of Kindergarten through grade 3. (The Nebraska Library Commission receives free copies of children’s and young adult books for review from a number of publishers.  After review, the books are distributed free, via the Regional Library Systems, to Nebraska school and public libraries.)
