So if you’re fans, I would keep your eyes on Chloe’s site in a couple of weeks. I totally want that first chapter. *grin*

Tez Says has the scoop on a few new publishing deals including ones for Keri Arthur (a new series and more Dark Angels) and Jackson Pearce’s fourth novel in her retold fairy tale series. Plus there’s news that the film version of Veronica Roth‘s Divergent now has a release date of March 21, 2014. There’s more, so make sure you head over and check it out.

CHarris-Dead Ever AfterSo what do we think of the cover for the final Sookie Stackhouse novel, Dead Ever After, by Charlaine Harris? I honestly think this might be my favorite of the bunch. All her men are represented and yet we still won’t know who she’ll end up with. I just hope she doesn’t end up alone. Although, a question remains, is that what all the animals mean or is it just a homage to all the supes who have had an important part of Sookie’s life?

There are always more fabulous covers popping up. To see them all, head over to facebook, where I’ve added them to the October album for your viewing pleasure.

Blastr has some news that I am strangely really excited about. Lego Batman is coming to the movies.

News from this season’s New York Comic-Con promised a Caped Crusader LEGO concoction, and here’s the new trailer for LEGO Batman: The Movie—DC Superheroes Unite to help build anticipation. The colorful CG-animated toon pairs the maniacal minds of the Joker and Lex Luthor to deconstruct Gotham City brick by brick.

I’ve played the second Lego Batman, and it was pretty awesome, but I’m thinking the movie is going to blow it out of the water. Don’t believe me? Then check out the trailer.

Jennifer Estep has released the back cover copy for her next Mythos Academy novel, Midnight Frost, which will be released in August 2013.

Just when it seems life at Mythos Academy can’t get any more dangerous, the Reapers of Chaos manage to prove me wrong. It was just a typical night at the Library of Antiquities — until a Reaper tried to poison me. The good news is I’m still alive and kicking. The bad news is the Reaper poisoned someone else instead.

As Nike’s Champion, everyone expects me to lead the charge against the Reapers, even though I’m still hurting over what happened with Spartan warrior Logan Quinn. I’ve got to get my hands on the antidote fast — otherwise, an innocent person will die. But the only known cure is hidden in some creepy ruins — and the Reapers are sure to be waiting for me there …

Parajunkee’s View has another fabulous piece of Blogging 101 and this time she’s talking about the difference between a Critique and a Mean Comment.

Breaking Dawn: Part 2 will be released next month, ending the Twilight saga for film. However, io9 has uncovered that Summit and Lionsgate is looking to make a Twilight spin-off. Could be interesting, right? Yeah, if they do, the rumor is saying they won’t be using any of the current cast/characters and will be focusing on a whole new group that we haven’t seen. The idea of it featuring the Wolf Pack is being considered, but I’m not sure I like it. I would much rather see a spin-off of Renesmee and Jacob.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
