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!

(plus this book was published under Rick Riordan’s imprint and mythology hello?)

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.’

You can read an excerpt here!

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!

Roshani Chokshi is releasing a book called The Gilded Wolves and here’s the cover!

The Gilded Wolves kicks off an alternately glamorous and dangerous adventure, set in Paris near the end of the 19th century, with the world on the cusp of industry and power, and ancient secrets starting to get dredged up.

    1. It is! I haven’t read any Roshani Chokshi but I have some of her books my TBR + Ooh me too. It doesn’t exactly match but at the same time it does? It does look cool though and I’m excited too!

  1. I love that there’s so many Roshani Chokshi-news! I’ve loved everything I’ve read by her so far. I haven’t read Aru Shah yet, but it’s on my tbr as well 🙂 I love the UK-cover for LifeL1k3 and the cover for The Darkest Star too!

  2. I love this feature so much because I’m kind of out of the loop. I love the cover for Wildcard. Jane Unlimited sounds really interesting. I want to read it. I have a few Roshani Chokshi books on my TBR.

    1. Glad you like it! The Wildcard cover looks so cool.

      Doesn’t it? When I heard about Jane Unlimited I was really intrigued. If you read it let me know what you think!

      Roshani Chokshi is on my TBR too! I haven’t read any of her books but I’ve heard her writing is really good.

  3. Ooh, very nice update! I wish I saw more posts like this because I rarely keep up with book news (or at least, I’m not very good at doing so haha). And hmm, I’m not a fan of these anniversary editions for HP, but DAAANG I love Hugo Cabret’s illustrations, and those new US covers look so cool!

  4. Oh, I didn’t know Jennifer Armentrout is working on a new project (let alone an already released excerpt!). Her books are kind of really addictive and easy to read novels so you should definitely try one of her series (Lux, The Dark Elements or The Covenant series recommended) if you’re feeling sort of book slumpy.
