News Round Up! 1st June

Each week I post a recap of news stories that have popped up on my radar. Here's the news for this week. Enjoy!

Book Expo America kicked off this week. This is where book industry types and authors gather together for panels and signings, and it gives readers a sneak peak of the books to be excited about later this year. You can read more about the conference on the website here and keep up with all the latest happenings on Twitter.

One thing to come out of BEA was the cover reveal for the new US cover of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. You can see the new cover over on the Scholastic blog.

Several photos from the Divergent set emerged  this week, featuring extras and the main cast dressed in faction clothing. You can see all the photos on

Percy Jackson fans were treated to a new poster and a second trailer for Sea of Monsters this week. See the poster over on Hypable and watch the trailer below.

And it's always exciting when an author gets a deal for a new book! Marie Lu, author of the Legend trilogy, will be releasing a new YA fantasy series. The Young Elites is set to be published in 2014 and you can add it on Goodreads here!

Which of these stories are you most excited about? Let me know in the comments!

New releases:
Goddess by Josephine Angelini

Of Triton by Anna Banks

Monument 14: Sky on Fire by Emmy Laybourne


  1. Don't mention BEA! I'm incredibly jealous of everyone who has been and have been crying silently to myself whenever I see someone posting about it on Twitter. Oh well! Maybe one year! :)

    1. Me toooo! It sounds incredible. I hope the UK has something like that one day :D
