Weekly Updates is a post I (try to) do weekly which just recaps all the bookish news that has happened in the community
If that doesn’t make sense you can view all my other posts here!

The Harry Potter books are getting new covers for the 20th US anniversary. These are drawn by Hugo Cabret who wrote and illustrated The Invention of Hugo Cabret (which I loved growing up! Movie as well!) So these are redesigns of the old US covers (which I’m not the hugest fan of) but its so amazing and it captures the same essence really well!
So that’s the new vs old!
You can view them all in the link here!

Paramount Pictures has won the rights for a movie to Aru Shah and the End of Time! I haven’t read this book or any of Roshani Chokshi’s books but it’s on my TBR!

Dear Martin author Nic Stone is coming out with a new book called Odd One Out and here’s the cover!
I really want to read both books!
‘Her new book explores friendship, love, and the path to self-discovery as two best friends — one a boy, one a girl — fall for the same girl who’s new to the neighborhood.’

The author of Graceling (Kristin Cashore) wrote a book called Jane Unlimited and it’s getting a new paperback cover!
‘One choice leads Jane into a heist mystery. Another takes her into a spy thriller. She finds herself in a gothic horror story, a space opera, and an extraordinary fantasy realm. She might fall in love, she might lose her life, she might come face-to-face with herself. Every choice comes with a price. But together, all the choices will lead her to the truth.’
I haven’t read the book, but it sounds cool!

The Wayward Children series is getting a 4th and 5th book and I’m so excited!!
Book 4 is called In an Absent Dream (how awesome does that sound?) and here’s the cover!
Book 5 is called Come Tumbling Down and that has no cover yet.
If you haven’t read the series you should. The books are actually all novellas, and while they’re short they’re also so amazing too!
