Weekly Book Recap #56

It's been another week of bone-chilling temperatures, but my field trip on Friday definitely was worth braving the cold.  It was 9 degrees when I left my house at 7:00 a.m. (the windchill temperature was below zero) and headed to Simon & Schuster for their Summer 2014 Preview for Educators and Librarians.  A look at their new books which are coming out in the next few months warmed my heart, as did the ARCs I came  away with.

I'm so enthused about these new titles that I am leading off this post with a peek at the ARCs I came home with from Simon & Schuster and their Gallery Books, Touchstone, Howard, Atria, and Scribner imprints.  Special thanks to the wonderful editors and marketing folks who put together the presentations.  They are always informative, personable, and welcoming.
