Where Dreams Descend
Phantom of the Opera meets Moulin Rouge in this spell-binding, romantic debut fantasy! Where Dreams Descend centers around a group of magicians who go head to head (or should we say, wand to wand) in a daring competition to find the next Conquering Circus headliner. The contest sounds enticing until the magicians realize there’s a serious threat striking behind the scenes, and the acts are getting riskier. If you’ve been looking for a book like Caraval or The Night Circus, this one’s for you!
Let’s be honest, we all need a little thrill in our lives, and The Woman in the Window gives us that and more! Anna Fox favors a solitary life. She lives alone and enjoys spending her days drinking wine, watching old movies, and spying on her neighbors. Until one night, while she is gazing out her window, she sees something that she shouldn’t, and the lines between what is real and fake become blurred. Curl up with this gripping thriller before watching the movie that was released this year.

Still, even the most uncertain kiddos are sure to find comfort in this positive story that introduces what they should expect on their first day. Cuddle up with your child and get ready to laugh as together you read about how one confident little boy makes the most of his first day of kindergarten.
