Hello!! It is 2015 but I am still writing 2014. Sorry for a really late Book News post but I’ve been awfully busy❤. However, lots of exciting things happened this week and last week!
First of all, the first novella in the Shadow Hunter Academy Series was released and here is a short snippet of the book:
“Oh,” Jace said carelessly, as if he hadn’t been waiting out here for the express purpose of seeing Simon off. He looked up, golden gaze casual, then looked away. “You.”
Being too cool for school was Jace’s thing. Simon supposed he must have understood and been fond of it, once.
“Hey, I figured I wasn’t going to get the chance to ask this again. You and me,” Simon said. “We’re pretty tight, aren’t we?”
Jace looked at him for a moment, face very still, and then bounded to his feet and said: “Absolutely. We’re like this.” He crossed two of his fingers together. “Actually, we’re more like this.” He tried to cross them again. “We had a little bit of initial tension, as you may later recall, but that was all cleared up when you came to me and confessed that you were struggling with your feelings of intense jealousy over my—these were your words—stunning good looks and irresistible charm.”
“Did I,” said Simon.
Jace clapped him on the shoulder. “Yeah, buddy. I remember it clearly.”
“Okay, whatever. The thing is … Alec’s always really quiet around me,” Simon said. “Is he just shy, or did I tick him off and I don’t remember it? I wouldn’t like to go away without trying to make things right.”
Jace’s expression took on that peculiar stillness again. “I’m glad you asked me that,” he said finally. “There is something more going on. The girls didn’t want me to tell you, but the truth is—”
Unfortunately, it is only accessible by E-Book, but if you wait until all the short novellas are released. Cassandra Clare will release a bind-up book with the whole collection. The Whole Shadowhunter Chronicles will be re-vamped with a new cover that you can check out on Cassandra Clare’s tumblr. I might have a “My thought on…” post about it soon!
The Insurgent tickets also went on sale for pre-order, recently. It comes out on the 18th of March and it can’t be missed. Colleen Hoover has generously created an organisation that will definitely appeal to us, readers. It is called the Bookworm Box and it is where Colleen Hoover collects signed books and goodies into a box and sells them, monthly. With the money earnt she will donate it to charity. Her first batch of Bookworm Boxes sold out almost immediately and she raised over $11,000 for her charity. Find out more at The Book Worm Box. Rick Yancey has also released the title of the third installment of the 5th Wave series and it will be called, “The Last Star”.
That’s all this week on book news and I hope you enjoyed it!
