Time for another News Round Up! This is where I discuss the news stories that have popped up on my radar this week. Enjoy!
Firstly, debut author Lenore Appelhans has revealed that her novel Level 2 will get a new title for its paperback release. According to this post on her blog, the 2 in the title was putting some readers off as they thought it was a sequel. The new title will be The Memory of After. I haven't read this book yet (it's one I really want to check out!) but I really like the new title. Personally I can see Level 2 being problematic as whenever I try to search for it online it's proved very difficult to find amongst the wealth of results with that phrase in.
More Mortal Instruments news this week, something which always makes me happy! It was revealed that if the first film does well (fingers crossed!) and they go on to make further films in the series, City of Ashes and City of Glass will be filmed back to back. That sounds good to me! And hopefully it would mean a shorter wait between films being released. Read more about this story on TMISource.
Also in Mortal Instruments related news, the cover has been released for the first instalment of The Bane Chronicles, the series of e-shorts focusing on the character of Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series, has been released. Check it out along with the release dates for the rest of the short stories on EW.com.
Filming has officially started in Chicago this week for the Divergent film adaptation! There's been so much news about casting lately that it's really exciting to see filming get underway. You can read more about this story and the full press release over on PagetoPremiere.
And in more film news, a steady stream of stills from the upcoming adaptation of Catching Fire are being released in preparation from the trailer! The photos include this sweet shot of Prim and Katniss. Be sure to check out the rest of the photos on The Hunger Games UK Facebook page.
Publishers Weekly recently posted this article which recaps the top selling books of the year so far. Amongst the Amazon Kindle top twenty bestsellers were Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, The Host by Stephanie Meyer, Hopeless by Colleen Hoover and The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
Which of these news stories got you excited this week? Let me know in the comments!
