It will be a bittersweet day when the last installment in Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls series hits shelves: On one hand, we can’t wait to see what happens next. But on the other… It’s the end! [Cue torturous sobs] That day is still a ways away, but today we can exclusively reveal the title and cover of the final book. Readers, it will be called… United We Spy!
Writing the conclusion to a series is always an emotional undertaking for an author, and Carter was no exception. We reached out to the writer via email to ask about her thoughts on putting the series to rest. “I can’t believe the sixth — and final — Gallagher Girls book is here,” she wrote. “I’ve been working on this series and living with these characters since 2005. Saying goodbye to them has been bittersweet, but I’m so grateful to be able to give the series a proper send-off. So few authors have that luxury. Will the ending make readers cry? I don’t know. All I can say is that this author cried buckets.”
Read the official description, then check out the cover below: “Cammie Morgan has lost her father and her memory, but in the heart-pounding conclusion to the best-selling Gallagher Girls series, she finds her greatest mission yet. Cammie and her friends finally know why the terrorist organization called the Circle of Cavan has been hunting her. Now the spy girls and Zach must track down the Circle’s elite members to stop them before they implement a master plan that will change Cammie—and her country—forever.” READ FULL STORY
I hate it when great YA reads fly under my radar. And that’s exactly what happened with Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds. Minds—the first in a planned trilogy—debuted last December and follows Ruby, one of the few kids to survive a mysterious disease killing American children. Ruby’s sent to a government rehabilitation camp at the age of 10, and now at 16, she’s dealing with powerful abilities she’s can’t control. I was admittedly late to the Darkest Minds party, but now I’m totally hooked on the series and even pestering Bracken on Twitter to send me an early copy of the second book, Never Fade. While my online fandom hasn’t yet produced a copy of book 2, I did manage to get an exclusive first look at the cover. Check it out after the jump. READ FULL STORY
Marie Lu answers burning questions about the final Legend novel 'Champion'. Plus, the cover! -- EXCLUSIVE
Marie Lu’s epic dystopian series, which began with Legend and continued with Prodigy, comes to an end with the third installment Champion (Nov. 5). By the beginning of Champion, June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic, and now they’re on the brink of a new existence — a country at peace, with hope of reunification with the Colonies. Both are back in the good graces of the Republic: June is working within the government’s highest circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high-level military position. But just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies. War threatens the Republic’s border cities once again. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever and, as June soon discovers, the Republic’s only means of defense could cost Day everything he has.
For fans who are itching for more of June and Day’s saga, we have two treats: the first look at the cover of Champion, and a teaser interview with Lu. Check them both out below! READ FULL STORY

See the new covers of 'Gone Girl' author Gillian Flynn's 'Sharp Objects' and 'Dark Places' — EXCLUSIVE
Gone Girl by former EW staffer Gillian Flynn might be the surprise runaway hit of 2012 — and it’s still killing it on the best-seller chart deep into 2013 — but it’s not her first rodeo. If you loved Gone Girl, you might want to check out her first two novels Sharp Objects and Dark Places, the film version of which will reportedly star Charlize Theron. Flynn’s previous books are certainly different from Gone Girl, but they carry some hallmarks that might seem familiar by now: heroines who are deeply screwed up but always engaging; bleak, low-skied Midwestern settings; smothering parental types; and, of course, sneaky, viperish twists.
Broadway Paperbacks is releasing new covers for Sharp Objects and Dark Places in early April, and they hew closer to the Gone Girl motif. Take an exclusive peek below! READ FULL STORY
If you’re a U.S. fan of Norwegian author Jo Nesbo, we have some good news!
Nesbo’s first novel, The Bat, is going to be distributed in the U.S. for the first time as a Paperback Original on July 2. The first of three books in the Inspector Harry Hole series, The Bat tells the story of Harry Hole’s work on the Oslo Crime Squad, located in Austrtalia. When called to observe a case, Hole discovers a serial killer. The crime thriller then mixes suspense with romance when Hole stars to fall for a friend of one of the victims.
The Vintage Crime/Black Lizard publication of The Bat follows the U.S. release of Nesbo’s second book, Phantom, on Apr. 23 and the final book in the trilogy, The Redeemer, in May.
Check out an exclusive first look at The Bat‘s new cover below! READ FULL STORY
Whether you’re drawn to Elizabeth Gilbert or repelled by her, you’re probably reacting to her massively popular 2006 memoir Eat, Pray, Love, which sold 10 million copies, caught Oprah’s attention, inspired a movie starring Julia Roberts, and — like many successful creative works by women — galvanized a vocal army of haters. Before EPL and the dutiful if forgettable follow-up Committed, she had written excellent fiction: a novel called Stern Men and a near-perfect collection of short stories called Pilgrims.
For fans of Gilbert’s fiction, it’s great news that she’s returning to the form after a 13-year absence. The Signature of All Things — an epic novel of love, ambition and 19th century botanical exploration — doesn’t come out until Oct. 1, but Gilbert is giving readers the opportunity to vote on the cover via her Facebook page. Voting begins 8 a.m. ET on Mar. 21 and ends Sunday, Mar. 24.
Which cover is your favorite? I’m leaning toward the beige one.

Readers, we cannot describe how excited we are for Two Boys Kissing, David Levithan’s follow-up to Every Day.
