Mainstream Monday: A Plethora of News!

Happy Mainstream Monday!  In my world, there are many great things about May.  You get out of school, its warm, there usually Derby festivities and festivals, and this May there are several books coming out!  We also have some big news from some of your favorite authors!

- Tuesday, May 1st many great books are coming out:
The fourth and FINAL Laurel series book Destined by Aprilynne Pike
Deadlocked, the second to last Sookie Stackhouse book, by Charlaine Harris
Insurgent, book two of the Divergent Trilogy, by Veronica Roth!
- Tuesday, May 1st is also the release day for H.P. Mallory's Wuthering Frights! This will be book 4 in the Dulcie O' Neal series. Click here to join the online release party on Facebook. Also, if you didn't know you can follow all of your favorite characters in the series on FB. Yes! Dulcie, Dia, Quillan, Bram, Knight and Sam are all on there currently role-playing Great Hexpectations. Add them as friends just as you'd add anyone else to follow them.

 - City of Lost Souls, the fifth TMI book, by Cassandra Clare comes out Tuesday, May 8th.

- Dreamless, the sequel to Starcrossed, by Josephine Angelini comes out May 29th.

- Stephanie Meyer's The Host is being released in 2013! Move over Twilight! This is what I know I've been waiting for. Click here to see the trailer teaser.

- ABC Family has signed on Sara Shepard's The Lying Game for its second season! We couldn't be more excited. :)

- Amanda Hocking has released an excerpt from Wake, the first book in The Watersong Series that's being released August 7th through St. Martin's Publishing. To see the soundtrack for Wake, click here. Also! The third book in the Trylle Trilogy, Ascend was released last Tuesday.

- Julie Kagawa's new series, The Immortal Rules, was also released last Tuesday. I haven't read it yet but everyone is raving about it! Even cooler news? It's been signed for a movie deal! Julie also announced a new offspring of The Iron Fey series, all in teenage Ethan's perspective that should be out in October.  She is also publishing her novellas calling them The Iron Legends, which will contain Winter’s Passage, Summer’s Crossing, and her newest Iron novella, Iron’s Prophecy/ that will have a guide to Nevernever and a chapter from The Lost Prince which will be due out August 28, 2012. 

- Cassandra Clare and Holly Black are releasing a series they wrote together.  It’ll be written for middle grade following the main character from around 12 to 17.  Now before you turn your nose up to middle grade, did most of us not love Harry Potter?  Any Maximum Ride or Witch and Wizard fans?  And there will be no more over done love triangles since the boy is too young for all of that nonsense!!  Other than that there hasn’t been much else released other than the term Iron Trials, which has led me to believe that these books may be about faeries and quite frankly there are not enough faerie books out there right now.  Another plus is that these books will be pushing up the publication for all of Cassandra Clare’s TMI and ID books.
