Like to talk about books? Well, you’re in luck. My awesome friend, Kate (The Neverending Shelf) has started a new forum, Neverending YA Talk,where book lovers can come together and talk about book and other bookish things. This was a GREAT idea, and you all should check it out!

Many Hubbard (Prada and Prejudice) has posted a teaser for her upcoming book Shattered (written under the name Amanda Grace), due to release in 2011 by Flux. This book sounds interesting and can’t wait to read it. Check out the teaser here.

Rachel Vincent posted a teaser of My Soul to Save on her blog. I really enjoyed the first book in her Soul Screamers series, and can’t wait to read the rest of them.

I’m sure many of you have heard, but for those of you who haven’t - Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl is now in stock at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Megan Crew (Give Up the Ghost), participated in an interview with Tor.com about the possibility of a sequel!

Maggie Stiefvater posted her first teaser of Linger on her blog! Go read it!
