New Releases of January

Thought I'd be nice and all and list some books that have come out this month...
Well, the fourty-third book of the Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne came out; it's title: "Leprechaun in Late Winter."
When I was younger, I used to read that series. I have the first eight or so...cute books.
The seventh book in the Ranger's Apprentice series came out this month as well; it's title: "Erak's Ransom." The series is by John Flanagan. A friend of mine told me the series is really good, but I haven't gone around to reading it yet.
And the nineteenth of the Redwall series, "Eulalia!" by Brian Jacques came out this month as well.
And two books by Jacqueline Woodson came out this month: "Locomotion" and "Feathers".
And apparently she's a three-time Newberry Honor Author. Hmm...I've never heard of her, but I might just check out the synopsises(what is the plural of synopsis?) of the books later.
And "Great Bear Lake" (Seekers Series #2) by Erin Hunter came out.

"Tales from the Odyssey", Part 1 of 2 by Mary Pope Osborne came out.
"Chains" by Laurie Halse Anderson came out in paperback...and oh my god. She's the author of "Fever 1793". I enjoyed the book. And this book definitely looks's the synopsis for ya:

If an entire nation could seek its freedom, why not a girl?

As the Revolutionary War begins, thirteen-year-old Isabel wages her own fight...for freedom. Promised freedom upon the death of their owner, she and her sister, Ruth, in a cruel twist of fate become the property of a malicious New York City couple, the Locktons, who have no sympathy for the American Revolution and even less for Ruth and Isabel. When Isabel meets Curzon, a slave with ties to the Patriots, he encourages her to spy on her owners, who know details of British plans for invasion. She is reluctant at first, but when the unthinkable happens to Ruth, Isabel realizes her loyalty is available to the bidder who can provide her with freedom.

From acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson comes this compelling, impeccably researched novel that shows the lengths we can go to cast off our chains, both physical and spiritual.

If I don't buy this book, I'm getting it from the library, definitely.
