New YA: May 4-10.
The Falconer: Book 1, by Elizabeth May:
But she revels in fighting the fae, full stop. She can be covered in blood, half of it her own, and rather than bemoaning her fate, she’ll grin in delight. In fighting, she has power, and in fighting, she wrests control from beings that are bigger and stronger than she is…which is exactly what seems so impossible when she’s wearing her public face.

New paperbacks (that I've read):
Five Summers, by Una LaMarche:
It stars a cast of likable characters, and it’ll be a good pick for fans of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and the like, but while it’s an enjoyable read, it’s also a somewhat forgettable one.
The Star of Kazan, by Eva Ibbotson:
Classic Ibbotson (minus the fantasy). I loved it, even the horses.
The Dragonfly Pool, by Eva Ibbotson:
If you haven't read any Ibbotson, you're missing out -- while I'm sure that's something you've heard before about a plethora of authors, it really is true in this case. She writes the sort of old-fashioned children's stories that make you smile all the way through and then make you happily cry at the end.
