It’s been a while (aside from a review here and there). I hope that you’re all doing well! Things are still super busy here, but I have missed being able to talk books with you all so much! I’m going to try to get back to posting at least semi-regularly for now.
So, let’s catch up on the latest!! There are a couple of things that are coming up in the next few weeks/months that I’m super excited about, and a couple that have been announced but, sadly, no dates yet (so that I can pine away looking at my planner).
Let’s dive in!!
First, the long-awaited prequel to The Hunger Games, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes releases on May 19!!I have been anxiously waiting for this day since Suzanne Collins announced that it was coming. As I said before, this is a prequel to The Hunger Games, so we’ll get to see what happened to make Panem the Panem that we came to know.
Next Up: Twilight news!! I never thought that I would be announcing that!! The book that we never thought was coming is coming out in August, y’all! If any of you are Twilight fans, you’ll remember the disappointment at the announcement that Midnight Sun would not be completed and released as the first chapters of it were leaked online. Many years later, we are being given the book from Edward’s perspective that we (yes we, I’m a fan, too- hate me!) have been wanting! It’s set to release on August 4.
Now, onto the fun news with no set dates:
AMC has acquired the rights to all 18 books in Queen Anne’s The Vampire Chronicles and The Lives of the Mayfair Witches and plan to develop a television series. Y’all, I freaked when this dropped yesterday!! It’s no secret that The Lives of the Mayfair Witches is one of my all-time favorite series. I mean, I have the Mayfair Emerald tattooed on my back! Anne and Christopher Rice will be executive producing the series, so hopefully AMC will do them justice. I can’t wait to see what becomes of this!
Finally, also announced recently (I only say it yesterday), Uncle Rick will be writing an Irish Mythology series…eventually! In a blog post, Rick Riordan let fans know that he is finishing up a Masters in Gaelic Literature at University College Cork in order to ensure that the details and the mythology in his books are accurate. So, fear not my demi-god brothers and sisters, there is plenty more RR to look forward to!
That’s all that I have for now! I’m glad to be back with you, at least part-time. What do you guys think about all of this news??!! Is there anything else coming up that you’re excited about? Let me know!!
