Aug. 23 can’t come soon enough. That’s the day The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones hits the big screen. And since the sixth and final book in the series doesn’t come out until 2014, we’re jonesing for some Shadowhunter goodness. Thankfully, Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Princess, the final book in The Infernal Devices trilogy, hits shelves March 19. Princess will be just the cure for Cassie Clare book addiction, something we over at Shelf Life happen to suffer from. March 19 is only 26 days away. (Not that we’re counting or anything).

Happy New Year! What better way to celebrate than with the exclusive trailer for Fragments, Book 2 in Dan Wells’ dystopian Partials Sequence?

Partials introduced us to a world torn apart by war between humans and the titular Partials, organic beings engineered to look like people. With North America reduced to merely tens of thousands thanks to RM, a virus to which only a small minority are immune, humanity’s survival depends on finding a cure for the deadly disease. Fragments sees the return of 16-year-old Kira, who’s left her home in East Meadow in an attempt to find out the truth about who she is. Her journey will take her into the heart of post-apocalyptic America, where she’ll encounter an enemy even greater than she imagined. Check out the trailer below: READ FULL STORY
