Watch The Second Official Trailer Of Tim Burton's 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children', Plus Character Posters

The first trailer of the movie Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children received a temporary backlash from the fans of the original material, especially the purists. They don't understand why the people behind the camera -- they are pointing more on director Tim Burton -- changed some of the major plot points and goes very far away from the novel... Personally I have learned to accept the differences between the media, regarding story-telling.

The Bone Season #3: 'The Song Rising' By Samantha Shannon Gets An Official Cover And Updated Release Date

The third franchise of The Bone Season is rising! The Song Rising now has a face, I mean a cover... And for those who have been complaining of the long wait for the November 2016 release, here is a grave news: the book is rescheduled for release next year!

The new cover is a lot different compared with the first two due to some redesign (You might be interested to know that the reissued paperback edition will have new cover designs as well inspired by this new layout and typeset). That just busted my OCD-ness, but one thing the author Samantha Shannon confirmed is the spine of the books will be as faithful to the original two. I am a little bit consoled...

Check out the cover of The Song Rising By Samantha Shannon (US Edition).

The Song Rising By Samantha Shannon will be postponed from November 16, 2016 to March 7, 2017.

Better Late Than Never: Excited To See The Official Cover Of 'A Conjuring Of Light' By V.E. Schwab

It's a good thing that author Victoria Schwab adapted the pseudonym V. E. Schwab, very much like how J. K. Rowling did to have many boy readerships. I wouldn't know the psychology behind but I would most certainly skip her book if I see the former rather than the latter name (no offense) on the cover.

I first became familiar of her when I saw an ancient, tanned copy of Vicious (one of her earlier works under such name) and I immediately fell in love with it. But sadly I didn't buy it right away due to the condition of the book, but I've been dying to find a brand new copy (that's just my OCD taking control).

And then a few months later I saw her first Shades of Magic book and my resolve hardened like platinum: she should be part of my already cramp shelf. Fast forward to now, we have the third book in the series, which is called A Conjuring of Light coming out next year. One of the good things about this series would be the gorgeous covers that simply satisfied my OCD.

Check out the cover of A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab.

Just see how greatly it would fit with the collection.


Londons fall and kingdoms rise while darkness sweeps the Maresh Empire—and the fraught balance of magic blossoms into dangerous territory while heroes and foes struggle alike. The direct sequel to A Gathering of Shadows, and the final book in the Shades of Magic epic fantasy series, A Conjuring of Light sees Schwab reach a thrilling culmination concerning the fate of beloved protagonists—and old enemies.

A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab hits shelves on February 21, 2017.

And on a side note, Vicious fans will be delighted to hear that the sequel, Vengeful, will be coming our way as well. Another trilogy to devour!
