Stocktake Saturday 17 – 2014

May 3, 2014 Stocktake Saturday 4

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)

In Bookish News, Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis has been optioned by Stephanie Meyer’s production company Fickle Fish Films.

Ally Condie (Matched series) is writing a new stand-alone novel! Penguin Teen Australia have released the synopsis for Atlantia and announced that it will be available on November 5th 2014.

In Atlantia, the heroine, Rio, is thrown into a precarious and upsetting situation after her twin sister, Bay, opts to leave their underwater world for “Above” first. Since only family member can leave for the surface, Rio is then, as PYRG executive director of publicity Shanta Newlin explained, ‘left with increasingly dangerous questions about the complex political and religious system constructed to govern the fragile divide between land and sea.

The first image from the Fallen movie has been released. From left to right that’s Cam (Harrison Gilbertson), Luce (Addison Timlin), and Daniel (Jeremy Irvine).

Fallen Movie First Look


This week’s reviews:

It’s the start of a new month, so there’s a new must read!! Jo Spurrier’s North Star Guide Me Home blew me away, and concludes the amazing, epic, exciting and thrilling Children of the Black Sun series perfectly. Read her books!!

My book hauls, beginning as usual with the physical copies, thanks to Allen & Unwin, Bloomsbury Australia, and Random House Australia (links to Goodreads):

And e-galleys from Netgalley and Edelweiss:

I hope you have some goodies to share as well, leave your links below and I’ll be sure to visit 🙂

Happy Reading!

    I haven’t read the Lux series yet, but I’ve been wanting to since Obsidian came out. I’m glad now I waited because I can buy the new editions with the bonus content!
    Atlantia sounds interesting, I’ll be reading it.
    None of the actors in that Fallen still look anything like I imagined them.
    My jealousy is great over the fact you have already read North Star Guide Me Home, I want to read it so bad!
    Thanks for another great Stocktake Saturday.

    Oooh looks like I need to get onto Edelweiss, everyone is getting Snow Like Ashes and Blackbird. I love the Fallen movie still, it looks great and gothic. Thanks for sharing!

      Hahaha, I’m excited for both those books! I’m not sure about the Fallen movie yet, I hated the books! The still does look pretty, like the book covers!

    I’m still not sure how I feel about NADTD becoming a movie. I seriously love that book!! And while I LOVE good movie adaptations, I’m kind of not trusting the company, lol. >_< I'm sure it'll be fine! I'll just stew over here….
    My StS!
