New Novel by Rainbow Rowell!!

A new novel by popular teen writer Rainbow Rowell titled “Carry On” is set to come out October 6th of this year. You may recognize Rainbow Rowell name from popular books: “Eleanor & Park”,  and “Fangirl”. I really enjoy Rowell’s writing, I think it is very unique and it feels (when reading) like you’re connected to the main characters.

The outline from Amazon as “Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who’s ever been chosen.

That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.

Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon’s face...

Warner Bros. purchased the film rights for Kiera Cass’ Selection series!

“Warner Bros has won film rights to Kiera Cass’ global bestseller The Selection, the first of a five-novel series, and has set Black List scribe Katie Lovejoy to adapt it. DiNovi Pictures’ Denise DiNovi and Alison Greenspan are producing with Pouya Shahbazian. Lovejoy’s script The Arsonist Love Story made the 2010 Black List.

This is so freaking exciting!! Although I am a little late with the news, I am just glad to hear the news. I absolutely love the Selection series and can’t wait for Kiera Cass’ untitled fifth book coming out in 2016. I just have to say her main character named America (corny I know) who is both kind and beautiful, the interesting plot of an utopian society, and the romance between Maxon and America.

From Kiera Cass’ website describing The Selection “as The Hun...

New Sarah J. Maas novel “Queen of Shadows”

The next novel in the Throne of Glass series is being released on September 1st. This book is highly awaited with all of the others (in the series) having been popular with teens. I myself have read the first Throne of Glass novel, and I am sure to read the rest before “Queen of Shadows” comes out.

As described by Amazon “Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire-for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…

She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison...

Upcoming new Lisbeth Salander Novel!!

This book is continuing Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Series titled “The Girl in the Spider’s Web”. Describing the novel from Amazon “Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a trusted source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female super hacker–a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well. The implications are staggering.
Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Lisbeth for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda.

Quite frankly I am very excited to know there will be a next novel. When I finished the “The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest” I was sad to later read that the author had died and that was his last novel written...

Upcoming “The 5th Wave” Movie!!

5th

This highly anticipated movie is based on Rick Yancey’s novel ” The 5th Wave”. Like many other teen fiction novels before it, it goes to say this will be an sold out event. More and more producers are figuring out the trend of books turned movies and seeing how successful they are e.g. The Hunger Games, Divergent Series, and Harry Potter. The theme in all those were that they have a lot of teens reading, are series, and can make serious cash. Personally I can’t wait for this movie to come out since I have read the book and because I enjoyed it immensely. Some drawbacks that I am expecting are though is the director isn’t going to “translate” well into a film. More often than not book have horrible movie that go along with them ( I mean have you seen Eragon?)...

Book Review : Ingo by Helen Dunmore

I have read this book, maybe a total of 20 times. Like seriously! I’m not even kidding! I already am fascinated by mermaids and anything involving the sea world so this book (for me) is a total hit. It is one of the most whimsical, mystical, enchanting stories you could read right now, and I wish everyone can read it also. For me I was really intrigued by the family circumstance, the pleasant area surrounding the Trewhella cottage, and the interesting dynamic between Ingo and Earth. This novel is an absolute must and shouldn’t be ignored!

“Ingo” is about the Trewhella family that lives off the coast of Cornwall. The family consists of Mom, Dad, Sapphire, and Conor. On he day after the  Midsummer Eve’s celebration, Sapphire and Conor’s day goes missing...

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness : Book Review

A Monster Calls is a very moving and emotional book. The story is very sad and many, like I, would like a good cry. Not to mention it gives very good lessons on telling the truth, family values, and  coping mechanisms after a death. I think this novel would be beneficial in teaching young kids a pm valuable story while letting them read something that isn’t real. As we all know the author, Patrick Ness, is a master of his work and has many great fiction novels out there for young and old alike.I thoroughly enjoyed “A Monster Calls” and I hope others will too.

“A Monster Calls” is about boy named Connor and his mom. Connor’s mom is dying of cancer and there is nothing he can do about it. Every night that he goes to sleep, he dreams of a monster in one of his nightmares...

Book Review : Hold Tight by Harlan Coben

This has got to be one of my all time favorites (EVER!!). I’m usually not the girl to read mystery/whodunnit novels, but when I read the back cover of “Hold Tight” I was hooked. When searching for books I usually don’t come across involving the story of an whole family unit, and I thought this was a refreshing change. I just have to say that the author, Harlan Coben, is a master of what he does. The way he switches characters perspectives in the book plus the way he reveals all the suspenseful happenings. I’m really glad I discovered this book and can wait to read more of Coben’s work.

“Hold Tight” is about family named the Baye family (pronounced bye). It consists of 4 members : Tia, Mike, Jill, and Adam...

The Duff by Kody Keplinger : Book Review

I recently read this book after seeing the movie trailer for it. One of my most important rules, that I follow, is if a movie is based off a book I’m going to read the book first. So that’s what I did with “Duff” and I had high expectations for it. I mean if a book is going to be a movie then it has to be pretty good, right? Well no, if you assume that before reading this book you would be wrong! I didn’t really like this book and because of several reasons: poor timeline of events, lousy potrayal of characters, and unrealistic events that unfold in novel.  I felt like this book was just to get teens to like and sell to the masses. Although I wasn’t blesses about th book, I still finished it, and now I know true agony (just kidding).

“Duff” is about a high school senior named Bianca...

Gone by Michael Grant : Book Review

I know we’ve all become tired of the fake wannabe, dystopian society books that followed “Hunger Games”. Every time I see one I get really mad because I’m just really exasperated of seeing the same plot line and story over and over. When I was scanning the title and synopsis on the front page, I immediately thought it was going to be just like those aforementioned, and didn’t even want to finish reading the short paragraph. When I kept looking for a book to check out and couldn’t find one, I thought of “Gone”. My mind went back to flashing to the cover image (it’s very eye-catching/intriguing) and I got it. I enjoyed this book extremely and because of it’s odd storyline, alluring characters, and exciting plot...
