New York Times Bestsellers -- Week of 09/20

Each week, I get e-mails announcing the week's bestsellers. I have a feeling the next two weeks are going to turn this list on its head (September is already a HUGE month in new book releases).

Let's See. I am reading The Time Travelers Wife and I will read The Help & Olive Kitteridge (just picked it up yesterday)

I have read Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Shiver & Shadow of the Wind.

The woman at Borders recommended Home: A Novel to me. She said it was very good.

If you want a heads up on the next best seller, pick up my new YA fantasy novel, Gateway to DreamWorld.

Synopsis: On their way home from baseball tryouts, Brad Colby and his two sons are involved in a terrible car accident that leaves six-year-old Pete in a coma. When Pete awakens, the family is crushed to learn that he is paralyzed.

Meanwhile, Pete’s eight-year-old brother, Jason, has been having powerful dreams that lead him to a mysterious realm known as DreamWorld. Jason discovers that all of his desires can come true in DreamWorld, but the time is fast approaching when he will have to choose between his two worlds.

And when more devastating news strikes at the heart of the Colby family, Jason and Pete set out on a desperate attempt to find the Gateway to DreamWorld and save their family. With time running out on their dangerous path, will Jason and Pete’s fear of the Unknown keep them from reaching the paradise of their dreams?

I invite you to order your copy now from or Barnes& at a discounted price.

Thanks for your time and I hope you enjoy the fantasy.

This would be an awesome newsletter to get! I want one, lol!! I think it's always interesting to see who and what titles come up as Bestselling!

Sheri -- Home is written by Marilynn Robinson, who wrote Gilead, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. I myself couldn't get through Gilead, but those who have finished loved it. Let me know what you think of Home. I don't like to judge an author by one book.

Brenda -- I will check out your book. Next time, feel free to send me an e-mail (it's on the left hand side)

April -- My e-mails are just alerts from booksellers, but check out the NY Times Book Review this Sunday -- one of my new favorites will be highlighted!!!
