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. First up are the covers that were revealed this week (links to Goodreads pages):
- Unbreakable (Unravelling #2) by Elizabeth Norris – UK/AU cover
- The Originals by Cat Patrick – UK/AU cover – I like this so much better than the US one.
- The Shadowhunters’ Codex by Cassandra Clare & Joshua Lewis
In bookish news, HarlequnTeen US has announced (via Twitter) the official name of Aimée Carter’s new series: The Blackcoat Rebellion. The series will begin in December 2013 with Pawn.
Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood is set to become a movie! The young-adult novel about ghosts will be produced by none other than Stephanie Meyer, author of the Twilight series, who has created a movie producing company called Fickle Fish. Meyer is also working on The Host, the cinematic adaptation of a science fiction novel she wrote, and has bought the rights to Austenland, an adaptation of Shannon Hale’s novel.
More exciting adaptation news: the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver is coming to your TV screens! It will be adapted into a TV series by Fox Studios, who have asked for a Pilot episode to be shot. After initially buying rights to the trilogy with the intent of turning into a movie series, Fox realised the plot will work much better as a TV series – there are so many characters and intertwining plot-lines. You can read more about the announcement and what it means for the books in the blog post Lauren wrote about it.
This week I have been Waiting On … Gods and Monsters: Unclean Spirits by Chuck Wendig.
