  • OUAT Red's Untold taleOnce Upon A Time: Red’s Untold Tale
  • by Wendy Toliver
  • Ages: 12+ * Hardcover: $16.99

Little Red Riding Hood is growing up. Fans of the show know her as “Red.”  Red is growing up, and this story takes you on her journey through adolescence, responsibilities, desires and more. This isn’t the fairy tale you know!

From the publisher:

Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help’s Granny with Granny’s baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of “control” as she discovers she has a hot temper when the “mean girls” push her too far. (“When we learn to control it, we needn’t fear it,” Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname “Red.” She is plagued by nightmares that she doesn’t understand, but the Once Upon a Time fans will recognize them as her wolf side coming out. Red balances the difficult times with Granny at home and the girls at school with an emerging and satisfying romance with Peter.


  • Driving-Heat-with-Blue-BurstDriving Heat
  • by Richard Castle
  • Ages: 18+ * Hardcover: $26.99

Based on the ABC hit show, Castle, this is the seventh novel in the series. If you are not familiar with the show, Richard Castle(Nathan Fillion) is the star of the show. He is a famous mystery novelist and a single father who raises his teenage daughter in New York with his mother.

From the publisher:

Richard Castle, New York Times mega-bestselling mystery writer and star of ABC’s hit primetime show Castle is back. In the seventh novel of his popular Nikki Heat series, the NYPD’s top homicide detective has been promoted to captain just in time to face a thrilling case with a very personal twist. Captain Heat’s fiancé, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Jameson Rook, is deep in an investigation. Professionally for Heat, Rook’s meddling in the case compromises her new job. Privately, it becomes an early test of their engagement when Rook becomes a distraction at best, and an obstacle at worst, as their parallel lives not only cross, but collide.
