Author and TV writer Maria Semple talks 'Where'd You Go, Bernadette', 'Arrested Development', and the 'Bernadette' movie

Where’d You Go, Bernadette, released in paperback today, tells the story of Bernadette Fox, a brilliant architect turned neurotic housewife who spends her days planning a family trip to Antarctica per her teenage daughter’s request. What results is a hilarious epistolary novel constructed almost entirely of letters and email correspondence. When Bernadette goes missing, it becomes her daughter’s sole purpose to track down her mother in this story about family, failure and bouncing back. The second novel from television writer Maria Semple, Where’d You Go, Bernadette, made a splash in the book world in 2012 and is now being made into a feature film. We caught up with Semple to talk about the book, the movie and everything in between: READ FULL STORY

Will Stephenie Meyer make 'The Host' a trilogy?

The big-screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s The Host doesn’t hit theaters till March 29, yet there’s already chatter that the Twilight author might turn this sci-fi thriller into a trilogy.

“Once you’ve created characters that have life to them, unless you kill them all, you know where their stories go. You’re always aware of what happens next,” Meyer told the Associated Press earlier this week. “I’ve got outlines for the next books. I would hope that this would be a three-book arc, but we’ll see.”

Not so fast, cautions a source close to Meyer, who tells EW that there’s been no new news to report on the sequel/trilogy front. Besides, Meyer’s plate is pretty full at the moment — in addition to promoting The Host she’s a producer on the newly Sundance-acquired Austenlandstarring Keri Russell.

See the new paperback cover of 'The Age of Miracles' by Karen Thompson Walker -- EXCLUSIVE

Karen Thompson Walker has had an earth-shaking year in 2012. A former book editor herself, Walker’s first novel The Age of Miracles debuted to excellent reviews (including an A– grade from EW) and will likely make it onto several year-end best lists. The novel follows an 11-year-old narrator named Julia, who comes to terms with a subtle but disastrous apocalyptic event: The world’s rotation on its axis has slowed down; days have gotten longer, which leads to all sorts of disturbing changes, both on a global scale and in deeply personal ways for Julia. The paperback edition comes out Jan. 15, and we have an exclusive look at the new cover below. Plus, Walker talks about her big year and gives an update on the possible movie adapation.
