For all those out there who have patiently been waiting for the next installment (and sadly the last) of the Hunger Games series. Scholastic has revealed the title and cover and lots of other tidbits! I personally love it….I think the three books have very cohesive covers and I cannot wait until August 24th to dive back in! Marking my calendar as we speak!
*Libba Bray has just signed on to do a new series called The Diviners, which is so exciting to me since she is one of my favorite YA authors….this is following her big Printz win for Going Bovine which is sitting on my side table waiting to be read as we speak….I will always love her very first series though. Gemma Doyle has a place in my heart….I tried to convince my husband to name our child Pippa if she was a girl…didn’t go over so well. But I loved that series and characters, I fell in love from the start! I am sure her next will be spectacular!
*Harper Teen is giving away a book a day in their 28 Day Giveaway! Some great stuff is up for grabs so make sure to check it out! Just answer the poll to be entered.
*And……A New Jane Austen Challenge has just come to my attention from Fly High! The challenge is hosted by The Life and Lies of Inanimate Flying Object. Of course I will be signing up…and keeping up with my progress on my blog! I will be signing up for Fanatic of course.
