Aloha everyone :)
I hope the summer is wherever you are.
Today it is, again, time for our weekly "news you can use". So here are five news. Learn what happened last week in the world of books:
1. New cover! There have been two cover revealings last week.
First one is Through The Ever Night by Veronica Rossi. It is the follow up novel of Under The Never Sky and will be published on January 8, 2013. To find out more about the author and the series visit the official Goodreads site.
The second one is Requiem, the third book in Lauren Oliver`s Delirium series. Expected publication is in March 2013. Again, to learn, more about the series, e.g. summaries of the first books, visit the Goodreads site.
2. New Casting! Well, the second season of HBO's Game of Thrones ended a few weeks ago. But fans everywhere have been busy tracking the cast and of couse the new cast members. Everyone wants to know, who will appear in season three and if they are going to stick to A Storm Of Swords as much as they sticked to the other two books.
The series is based on the A Song Of Ice And Fire series by George R.R. Martin.
These castings have been confirmed:
Clive Russel will play Brynden "The Blackfish" Tully
Charlotte Hope has been cast as Myranda (It's not quite clear who Myranda is, though)
Kerry Ingram will play Shireen Florent Baratheon
The next season of Game of Thrones will cover half of the third book.

(3. Movie News! Yeah, there are a hell of a lot (ecxuse those words :D) movies based on YA books right now. So it is really hard to keep track on everything. Our Australien friends from Penguin Between the Lines did this great post about movie news featuring Beautiful Creatures and Legend. Strangely the blog went down and I can't find it anymore. As soon as I get news, I'll post them here!
4. New Releases! Just for Fins by Tera Lynn Childs was released today. To find more information about the next book in her Fins series visit this blog post.
Soulbound the first novel in the Legacy of Tril series was released a few days ago. It is written by Heather Brewer the author of the Vladimir Tod chronicles. For more information visit the Goodreads site.
5. Well, to be honest there won't be a Five today. There is nothing interesting left to tell you. :) But I'll keep you updated on everything.
Have you read one of the books, are you excited about these news? Personally I'm unbelivable excited for the new season of Game of Thrones, since I loved the first two and am a huge fan of the books.
