Allegiant quote 3

GOD I’m just so freaking excited for Allegiant to release! October 22nd is just too far away!

I don’t know why, but I’m always late on knowing about books turning into movies, like one of my favorite books ever, If I Stay by Gayle Forman! Like, HOW could I not have known it’s going to be a movie?!? AHHH! And they’ve already cast Chloe Moretz as Mia, Jamie Blackley as Adam and Liana Liberato as Mia’s best friend Kim. What do you think of them?

NEW BOOK ALERT!! Ever read the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater? (If you haven’t, you should! It’s incredible–one of my favorite series of all time.) Well, Maggie told us that she’ll be writing a new book in the series, book #3.5, called Sinner, that focuses on Cole! I totally fell in love with Cole in the previous books, and can’t wait to see how his story will go!

Summary – A standalone companion book to the internationally bestselling Shiver Trilogy.

Sinner follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 New York Times bestselling Shiver Trilogy. Everybody thinks they know Cole’s story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But only a few people know Cole’s darkest secret — his ability to shift into a wolf. One of these people is Isabel. At one point, they may have even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago. Now Cole is back. Back in the spotlight. Back in the danger zone. Back in Isabel’s life. Can this sinner be saved?

“Legions of fans — myself included — have wanted Maggie to return to the world of Shiver, and now she’s found an ingenious, sexy, utterly compelling way to do it,” says David Levithan, VP/Publisher and Editorial Director, Scholastic Press. “This isn’t so much a re-visitation as it is a reinvention, with Maggie taking readers to many places they’ve never been with her before. There is nothing quite so amazing as Maggie Stiefvater at the top of her game.”

Author Maggie Stiefvater says, “For me, finishing the Shiver trilogy was a bittersweet moment — I knew that I wouldn’t be returning to Mercy Falls once Sam and Grace’s story was over. But Cole and Isabel still lurked in the back of my mind. Both of them were only half-fixed at the end of the trilogy, and I wanted to know if they could be fixed the rest of the way.

REMY by Katy Evans cover is here!

Remy by Katy Evans

Remington Tate is a mystery, even to himself. His mind is dark and light, complex and enlightening. He might grasp his own thoughts at times and forget what he did in others. But through it all, there is one constant. The constant of wanting, needing, loving, and protecting Brooke Dumas with every fiber of his being. Remy is his story from the first moment he laid eyes on her and knew, without a doubt, she would be the realest thing he’s ever had to fight for, to the moment she becomes his.

Olivia Cunning is writing a new book for the Sinners on Tour series called Sinners at the Altar!

One choice will define you.

What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.
