Kids' Summer Reading Challenge
Reading Without Walls
Fiction Addiction and Gene Luen Yang, the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, are issuing a summer reading challenge: Read Without Walls. Adult bookclub members know the joy of falling in love with a book that your club selected that you were absolutely sure you were going to hate. We want kids to learn to take chances with their reading material and broaden their horizons as well. Gene's challenge is for children to do one (or two, or all three!) of three things: 1. Read a book about a diverse character different from yourself; or 2. Read a book about an unfamiliar topic; or 3. Try a book in a different format (thick book, thin book, graphic novel, etc.). In support of this challenge, Fiction Addiction is taking the financial risk out of the equation by offering no-hassle 30-day money-back returns on any book purchased as part of the challenge. Just tell us you're trying the challenge and we'll stamp your receipt.

Staff Picks
Roar Roar by Cora Carmack
I just devoured the young adult fantasy debut Roar by Cora Carmack. Those who loved Truthwitch, The Red Queen, and Graceling will have a favorite new author to obsess over. Even the cliffhanger ending (it is the first book in a young adult trilogy after all) could not dim my delight in this discovery.

Signed First Editions Available!


Tor Books - Release Date: 6/13/17 - Format: Hardcover - Price: $18.99


The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart by Stephanie Burgis

The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart is a great middle-grade girl-power fantasy about a dragon whose love for chocolate leads her into a world of trouble -- including getting turned into a human girl! This pitch-perfect novel is perfect for fans of Tuesdays in the Castle.

Words in Deep Blue Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley
Now Rachel is back after years away and working in her old crush/best friend Henry's bookstore, trying to cope with her feelings about her brother's death, and Henry, and Henry's girlfriend, Amy, whom he chose over Rachel. And Henry has to deal with Amy breaking up with him, and whether or not his family should sell their bookstore, and how he feels about Rachel. And through it all, they learn about life through books -- not just what's written on the pages, but what people leave between the pages. A YA version of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, Words in Deep Blue is an ode to books that will resonate with readers who search for the meaning of life in the books they read. (Also, I now want a Letter Library.)
