New School Year- New Books!

With August comes the beginning of another school year.  Whether your kids are going or yourself, it really is the most annoying time of the year.   You have to spend tons of money on school supplies, clothes, or tuition and rework you morning routine just to make sure you get yourself, and anyone else, out the door on time.  But with the start of school year comes some good things; seeing friends you haven’t seen in a while, football games (and tailgating!!), parties, and Halloween.  Something else comes with this time of year that I for one find fantastic.  With August marking the beginning of Fall, many authors launch a new batch of books for the new season.   Below are a list of some of the expected bestsellers coming out soon!
