Book News: Trailers and Covers and websites and things!
January 24, 2012
There has been a lot of book news lately that I keep forgetting to post up so I’m going to put a few things up on here today! First up is the wonderful trailer for Girl Meets Boy, edited by Kelly Milner Halls, which comes out in March from Chronicle Books, I cant wait to get started on this one as it sounds awesome and the trailer makes me even more intrigued than the blurb has done!
Goodreads summary: “What do guys and girls really think? Twelve of the most dynamic and engaging YA authors writing today team up for this one-of-a-kind collection of “he said/she said” stories-he tells it from the guy’s point of view, she tells it from the girl’s. These are stories of love and heartbreak. There’s the good-looking jock who falls for a dangerous girl, and the flipside, the toxic girl who never learned to be loved; the basketball star and the artistic (and shorter) boy she never knew she wanted; the gay boy looking for love online and the girl who could help make it happen. Each story in this unforgettable collection teaches us that relationships are complicated-because there are two sides to every story.”
Next up I have the cover for Louise Rennison’s new book A Midsummer Tight’s Dream. I haven’t actually read this series but I was a huge fan of the Georgia Nicholson series and I can image this one is just as good, I would love to be a teen again and be reading these!
Goodreads Summary: “It’s the hotly anticipated sequel to the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, WITHERING TIGHTS – laugh your tights off as Tallulah Casey and her bonkers mates return for a new term at Dother Hall performing arts college. Boys, snogging and bad acting guaranteed!
Yaroooo! Tallulah’s triumphant Heathcliff in ‘Wuthering Heights’ the comedy musical was enough to secure her place at Dother Hall performing arts college for another term. She can’t wait to see her pals again, Charlie and the boys from Woolf Academy and maybe even bad boy Cain…
When an international visitor comes to stay could the bright lights of Broadway be calling? And for who? Find out in the next Misadventures of Tallulah Casey”
Exciting news through from Harpercollins this week as one of the characters from Barry Hutchinson’s next book, The 13th Horsemen, have set up his own blog! You can follow him over at http://www.the13thhorseman.com/. This one sounds great, I’ve heard so many good things about Barry and his books!
Goodreads Summary: “Drake Finn has just met the Horsemen of the Apocalypse but is that really the end of the world? Pratchett meets Python in this dark comic fantasy with plenty of action, perfect for 11+ boys Drake is surprised to find three horsemen of the apocalypse playing snakes and ladders in his garden shed. He’s even more surprised when they insist that he is one of them. They’re missing a Horseman, having gone through several Deaths and they think that Drake is the boy for the job. At first he’s reluctant to usher in Armageddon but does being in charge of Armageddon have to spell the end of the world? An apocalyptic blend of riotous comedy, heart-stopping action and a richly imagined fantasy adventure”
