Stocktake Saturday 33 – 2014

August 23, 2014 Stocktake Saturday 3

Welcome to Stocktake Saturday! This feature is where I share some bookish news with you and then show you all the bookish goodies I got over the week.

The cover reveals from the last week – (links to Goodreads pages)

  • Mitosis (Reckoners #1.5) by Brandon Sanderson – UK cover
  • Mitosis (Reckoners #1.5) by Brandon Sanderson – US cover
  • The Jewel (The Lone City #1) by Amy Ewing – UK cover by Walker Books
  • Valley of Fires (Conquered Earth #3) by J. Barton Mitchell
  • Corruption (Disruption #2) by Jessica Shirvington
  • The Wicked Will Rise (Dorothy Must Die #2) by Danielle Paige
  • The Skull Throne (The Demon Cycle #4) by Peter V. Brett – US cover

In Bookish News, there might be a movie adaptation of Four: A Divergent Collection! Hypable wrote an article about a few YA rumours, including the Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer saying “I think as I’ve said before, we certainly hope so” in response to a question about whether the book is an opportunity to “do other films that haven’t been announced yet.” The other rumour discussed in the article is the possibility of Lionsgate releasing a trailer for Insurgent with Mockingjay, Part 1 in November.

Following last week’s announcement of two new novellas in the world of Kiera Cass’ The Selection, HarperCollins YA have given us a sneak peek of the cover of the printed, bound edition. Check it out on their instagram.

As you can see above, the cover of Corruption by Jessica Shirvington has been revealed! Hypable also released the synopsis of the book:

How do you live with yourself when you’ve deceived the one you love?

How do you move on when the person you’ve been fighting to save betrays you?

Two years ago, Maggie Stevens began the hunt.

Four weeks ago, Maggie’s world fell apart, when she finally found what she’d been looking for. And when Quentin, who had blindly trusted her, unravelled her web of lies.

Now, Maggie lives in the dark. But she’s not about to stay there. Not when she still has to bring M-Corp down. Not when there is still a chance she could win him back.

In the exhilarating conclusion to Disruption, Maggie must do whatever it takes to show the world the truth. And the price for her quest?


But for who?

Corruption will be released on November 20 by HarperCollins AU.

Peter V. Brett has announced that the fourth instalment of The Demon CycleThe Skull Throne – will be published in the US on March 24th 2015 by Del Ray! He also revealed the US cover (see above). I’ll keep you posted on news about the UK release date and cover.

    I am so excited for Corruption! The first book was amazing and I couldn’t function properly for a few days after finishing haha. Is the Demon Cycle series good? I’ve seen them around, but I haven’t heard much about them… Happy reading 😀

      I loved Disruption and I’m also very very excited for Corruption 😀

      I love Peter V. Brett’s books – his world is intricate and very cool. The world his books are set in have horrible demons in them that come out at night, and so people can only travel by day. Normal people only get a few km away from where they’re born throughout their lives!! Traders and messengers go through special training and use magical symbols called Wards to stave off demons while they’re travelling, but the jobs are very dangerous and mortality rates are high. Our protagonist is a messenger who becomes the best Warder in the world and unlocks all sorts of secrets about why his world is the way it is, and how to combat demons. But that’s just the bare bones, there’s a lot going on here and it’s hard to describe! The mythology and character are superb 😀

      Thanks for hopping by, sorry for the long reply!
