Now Playing Tracks

Things I got for the bookstore this week.
I’m not going to describe all of them, just some where its not obvious what they’re about or haven’t been heavily retumbled.
Kalia & the King’s Horses- Hawii in 1803. it’s about the horse gift to the king and native girl’s fascination with it.  Cause tween girls LOVE HORSES… even if they’re totally new, weird animals.
Hurt Go Happy- Go read teenlib​’s lovely review on this book about the connection between a deaf teen and a signing chimp. I picked this up from distributor based on their review.
Xingu- man, I wish this was more accurate. this is one of the rare kids books I’ve seen on indigenous peoples of south america and the only fiction one.  It’s really cute… but argh. vicuña are not rainforest animals!  so rather sketchy on accuracy, but the overall story is nice try.- Xingu lives along the banks of the Amazon with his parents. His best friends are the animals of the rainforest: the peccary, the armadillo, the sloth, and the vicuña.  He gets a bow and arrow for his 8th birthday and runs off to show it to his animal friends.  But he points it at the vicuña and fires, wounding him.  He chases him deep into the jungle where he confronts the vicuña and the other animals to ask forgiveness for his recklessness.- yes that a giant anteater on the cover. - Nice effort, not really accurate.
I got more from the book sale but I haven’t finished unpacking and cataloging everything yet.

Thrust into a web of intrigue, Mona finds herself at the center of a centuries old conflict between two rival pods of dolphin shifters known as the Dolphinae. Marked as a ‘Descendant of Neptune’, she first catches the eye of Lucan, a dark and handsome prince who admires her curves. But when his blond and regal companion, Dario, lays claim to her, the two suitors insist upon a duel of honor. However, a greater danger lurks beneath the sea, and Mona discovers she must reconcile the passion of the two alpha dolphins, or watch their entire race be destroyed.

'Bound to the Sea' is the introductory 18,000 word serial installment to the BBW paranormal romance, CLAIMED BY THE ALPHA DOLPHINS.

Explicit language and mature, uncensored love scenes are featured throughout. Periodic moments of romance, intimacy and lovemaking involve multiple partners actively participating in their human or supernatural forms.

It’s free on Amazon right now if sex with dolphins is your thing.

#WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If you liked Divergent by Veronica Roth, try Killer of Enemies by Joseph Bruchac because both feature kick-ass heroines in a dystopian/post-apocalpytic setting with an absorbing, complex world and story. (Bruchac gets extra credit for the creepy, genetically engineered creatures.)

Have you heard of Arte Público Press? It is “the oldest and most accomplished publisher of contemporary and recovered literature by U.S. Hispanic authors.”

As part of the ongoing efforts to bring Hispanic literature to mainstream audiences, Arte Público Press launched the Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage project in 1992. This project represents the first nationally coordinated attempt to recover, index and publish lost Latino writings that date from the American colonial period through 1960.

The notion of an imprint dedicated to the publication of literature for children and young adults was planted by an urgent public demand for books that accurately portray U.S. Hispanic culture. In 1994, a grant from the Mellon Foundation allowed Arte Público Press to transform the dream into a reality. With its bilingual books for children and its entertaining novels for young adults, Piñata Books has made giant strides toward filling the void in the literary market created by an increased awareness of diverse cultures.

You can learn more about this great independent press here. Be sure to check out their great selection of YA titles!
