I'm enjoying the various "Books to Look Forward To in 2018" lists (although I feel compelled to cross my fingers that our president doesn't do something that gets us all killed before they come out). Huffington Post recently posted their top 60(!!!) picks, and...

Sneaking a peek at The Book of Dust


NPR recently posted an "exclusive first read" excerpt from Philip Pullman's The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage, due out this week. I don't think this book is going to have any problems selling, but if you're still angry over the way the His Dark Materials trilogy ended...

Maybe people buy them as odd Christmas gifts?


According to io9, Chuck Palahniuk is once again blending original fiction with coloring pages, releasing a book called Legacy: An Off-Color Novella for You to Color. Clearly, his short story anthology/coloring book hybrid Bait sold well...

Runaways REBORN


This is great: acclaimed YA novelist Rainbow Rowell has been hired to restart Marvel's Runaways, and she is apparently planning to revive Gert, whom I have always believed was killed off at least partially because it was too upsetting for Marvel's artists to draw a fat character...

That's a dizzying image


There's an article on Flavorwire about a possible sequel to Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. This is by no means confirmed, but people are basing their hopes on a recent audiobook edition of the novel...

Good deal

Unexpectedly stoked about this


According to the Guardian, Neil Gaiman recently announced a sequel to his 1996 book Neverwhere. (Technically, Neverwhere is a novelization, rather than an independent story, but the BBC TV miniseries it was based on didn't quite work out, so Gaiman reworked it very successfully into a novel.) Gaiman...

A hundred and thirty-odd years later...


I got an e-mail last week about The Purloining of Prince Oleomargarine, a "never-before-published, unfinished children’s story by Mark Twain, completed and brought to life by Caldecott Medal winners Philip and Erin Stead", which will be released next September from Random House. The cover art...

Choice vacation reading


Ooh, I see there's a new book coming out next week in Elle Kennedy's Off-Campus series (we reviewed the first three books in the series earlier this year). I still feel like the musclebound cover art fails...

No theme parks, though

E.L. James, take note.


Stephenie Meyer has a new book coming out: The Chemist, to be released on November 15, 2016. I notice there's no mention of Twilight on the cover, although the artwork is thematically similar. Is this because Twilight is officially passé, or is...*

When in doubt...


In light of their current struggles, Vertigo is going back previously fertile ground: they're reviving the Fables 'verse, which ended about a year ago. The new spin-off series will be called Everafter: From the Pages of Fables. Here's the...

Jumping the gun


According to Coming Soon, Awesomeness Films is planning a film adaptation of Aaron Starmer's young adult novel Spontaneous. Here's hoping they didn't pay a ton for the rights; the book doesn't come out for another couple of months, and the idea of a story...

Who knows?


I got an email this morning informing me that Random House/Penguin is planning to publish a young adult "adaptation" of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code this fall. The book will be available on September 8th in the UK and September 13th here in the States. Frankly, I found The Da Vinci Code damn near unreadable—it felt like a boring version of Katherine Neville's The Eight—but Brown's novel has sold approximately one zillion copies, so...

Maybe by 2020?


I don't actually care about this (not a Game of Thrones fan), but George R.R. Martin nerds everywhere were chagrined to learn that he has zero chance of finishing the next installment of his best-selling series on schedule...

She causes me second-hand anxiety

No, thanks.


In a leave-no-stone-unturned effort to extract every possible penny from the George R. R. Martin media empire, Bantam Books recently announced that they're planning a Game of Thrones-themed coloring book. While I've written before about my love for coloring books for adults, I'll be skipping this sucker...

I'm already sharpening my crayons.


Last week I wrote a brief piece about the charm of Johanna Basford's coloring books for adults, and now the Internet has introduced me to her books' cooler, more urban cousin: artist Steve McDonald's upcoming book Fantastic Cities, which features...

The new V.C. Andrews?


Huh. Apparently, Stieg Larsson’s death was not enough to stop the creation of his Lisbeth Salander books. According to the Guardian, the next installment in the series will be written by David Lagercrantz, published in 38 different languages this August, and titled The Girl in the Spider’s Web...

Christmas and my birthday, rolled into one


OH MY GOD: We asked for this in 2012, and Nancy Pearl, like a book-nerd fairy godmother, has totally delivered! Yes, dear readers: for the first time in my lifetime, my beloved Greensleeves will actually be available in print.

More Mediator


Awesome news—Meg Cabot is planning a seventh book in her Mediator series! Unlike the earlier installments, Remembrance will be aimed at adult readers (which I'm assuming = sex), it will be released in 2016, and the plot synopsis is vague...
