And we have one of our favorite Gleek coming out with a new book:
The Land of Stories
by Chris Colfer
August 12, 2012: Little Brown Young Readers
Alex and Conner Bailey's world is about to change, in this fast-paced adventure that uniquely combines our modern day world with the enchanting realm of classic fairytales.What do you think? I hope Chris' venture into writing will be pleasant, and the story does sound promising. But will a ghost writer be involve? I hope not because that kid is sure talented, maybe writing can be one of it too, with a bit of help will not be bad of course.
The Land of Stories tells the tale of twins Alex and Conner. Through the mysterious powers of a cherished book of stories, they leave their world behind and find themselves in a foreign land full of wonder and magic where they come face-to-face with the fairy tale characters they grew up reading about.
But after a series of encounters with witches, wolves, goblins, and trolls alike, getting back home is going to be harder than they thought.
And now for the title for Veronica Roth's sequel to the awesome-sauce, Divergent.
Veronica isn't telling much her readers about the meaning of the title for the book, but do check out some of the dictionary's definition of Insurgent that she said one might be spot on.
I am not that excited about the sequel. I just went all giddy again at the sight and knowledge of the second book's title. Can I have the book right now?
And lastly, we have a behind-the-scenes video from the photoshoot of Iron Knight. Courtesy of the HarlequinTeen thru the Iron Fae goddess, Julie Kagawa:
I hope they'll have a book trailer with these guys playing the characters! They have good chemistry and loved them! Can I have Ash? But Puck's voice can be a winner. Meghan, you are sure lucky. :)
