Hello, and welcome to my new type of post, all for bookish news and my general bookish ramblings! 😀 This will be posted on Fridays from now on, though this first one is today. Just because.
NEWS (which is kind of late):
There are going to be four new novellas by Veronica Roth, about Four (I’m pretty sure Veronica did that on purpose).
Four novellas! And, they’re about the coolest character in the trilogy. I’m so excited! The first short story is being released on the twenty fourth of September and, according to the HarperTeen website, it’s going to be called The Transfer: A Divergent Story. Also, the second story is being released in late December, and it’s called The Initiative: A Divergent Story.
That’s pretty cool: We’ll have the first novella in September to tide us over until Allegiant, which come’s out in October, then the second Four installment in December! The end of this year is going to be heaven for members of the Divergent Fandom like me.
They’re all about Four, as I’ve rambled about already, but, what could they be about? I’m guessing that they’re going to be snippets of Fours past from before we meet him, mostly. Could The Transfer be the scene where Tobias decides to move to Dauntless, with a detailed background on his father, which was why he transferred? That’s my guess. What do you think?
As for The Initiative, I have no single idea on what that could be about. Training? I’m not too sure. All I know is that I really can’t wait for these two titles, and the other two released in 2014!
What do you think about the four novellas? Will you be picking them up, if you’ve read and loved Divergent and Insurgent?
In other news- There’s been a cover and name reveal for the third book in Dan Wells’ PARTIALS series! I’m not entirely sure when this was released, but I spotted it on Goodreads today and I did a little happy dance in my desk chair.
I present to you… RUINS! It sounds a bit too different to the past two book’s titles, though I still really love it, because that’s basically what the world is; in ruins. It’s quite funny really, because on the previous covers the titles were long words, but RUINS looks kind of lost on this cover, with the letters all spaced out. It’s still awesome, though.
I really love the cover, too. It’s a big change from the previous ones, which were extremely similar, and it’s only Kira on the front now. It’s so cool- really sci-fi. ‘Earth’s last hour/ her last stand’: ARGH! I need to know what’s going to happen. But it’s not published until next March *marks calender, recedes into hibernation until that date*
