News round up! Demonglass cover revealed, a new trailer for Ally Condie's Matched & If I Stay movie news!

Lots of wonderful book news this week!

First up is the cover for Demonglass (Hex Hall #2) which was revealed on author Rachel Hawkins blog this week. I love this cover, and I can't wait to see what's really going on with that hottie, Archer!  I'm also excited to see the UK cover for this when it's revealed. I liked the US cover for Hex Hall much more than the UK cover, so lets see what they do with this one. Demonglass will release in the US March 2011, while the UK version entitled Raising Demons will release in April.

What do you think of the cover? Do you love it?

How much do I love the sound of Matched? A lot! Those in the know are saying that this book is the new Hunger Games (I know, I know, I still haven't read the Hunger Games trilogy, although I am aware of how amazing etc it is).  Matched sounds great. I received a copy in the post this week, and can't wait to get started on it. This one also has a great trailer - check it out!

Exciting book to movie news now. All the movie blogs are abuzz with the news that Dakota Fanning is in talks to star as Mia in the movie adaptation of If I stay. I love that book so much! I have to admit that when I read If I stay, Dakota is not how I pictured Mia at all, but I think she's an amazing actress, and definitely one of the best young actresses around right now. I'm sure she'd do a great job. I can't wait to see who's cast as Adam!

What do you think of Dakota as Mia?


  1. Oh I love the the cover for Hawkins new book. It is gorgeous and I think it is awesome that the publishers went for a similar look as the first one.

    Hope you are enjoying Matched. I loved the world building and am now anxious to see what will happen next.

    Finally, I have not seen Dakota in a while am amazed that she is looking so mature. Also need to run and get If I Stay as I have not read it yet.

  2. Love the cover for Demonglass! I can't wait!

  3. I love love love the Demonglass cover! It's so awesome.

    I also got a review copy of Matched this week and am planning to start it on Monday or once my thesis project is done, whichever comes first.

    If I Stay is a great book and I can't wait to see what they do with the movie, but Dakota is not how I pictured Mia at all - she's blonde! A lot of Mia's emotional background is based on the fact that she feels so different from her family and isn't blonde like the rest of them. Maybe they'll dye her hair?

  4. I really need to read Hex Hall now! Matched is on my wishlist. It does look really good.Thanks for all the info!

  5. I'm loving the Demonglass cover. I just read Hex Hall last week and devoured it - so fun.

  6. @Becky - they will have to dye her hair for sure. She's so different to how I imagined Mia, but I just think she does such a good job in all her roles, that she'll be great in this too. That's if she takes the role - don't think it's confirmed yet.

  7. OMG that cover is amazing. I couldn't get a copy of the US cover of Hex Hall, so I bought the UK one. :)

  8. @Nina - same here. The US version was out of stock every time I went to buy, so I bought the UK version instead, even though I much prefer those US covers!

  9. Great cover, I'm not sure about Dakota as Mia but I'm sure she'll do great, as always; and I'm looking forward to Matched too. I would give anything to read Where She Went early!!
