Just before the film version of Isaac Marion’s alternately hilarious and gruesome novel Warm Bodies hits the big screen, Marion will give us another bloody taste of his zombie-infested world. The New Hunger, a prequel to Warm Bodies, will be released as an eBook Jan. 28 exclusively by Zola Books. It’ll give fans an intriguing look at brain-muncher-with-a-heart-of-gold R — played by Nicholas Hoult in the movie — before he fell in love with Julie (Teresa Palmer), who’s also featured in the prequel.
The New Hunger will take place soon after the natural disasters and government collapse that made Earth a crawling ground for hungry corpses. Separated from their parents, 16-year-old Nora and her younger brother Addis fight to escape zombies that are pursuing them. Meanwhile, R wakes up in the woods with no memory of who he is, and Julie is stuck on an odd road trip with her parents.
Before the publication date, EW has a sneak peek at The New Hunger. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY »

Richelle Mead’s The Indigo Spell, the third book in her absolutely phenomenal Bloodlines series, is one of the most anticipated YA books of 2013. After a fair amount of begging, its generous publishers sent Entertainment Weekly an exclusive excerpt of Chapter 2, which of course I’m sharing with all of you fine people.
After her (hot!) dalliance with the irresistible Moroi Adrian in The Golden Lily, Sydney is struggling more and more to stick to her Alchemist teachings. But when she tracks down the former Alchemist Marcus and learns of his rebellion, she dares to hope that she might break free of the life she’s known… and embrace a love she thought to be forbidden. (Readers, my heart started pounding just typing that.) So check out Chapter 2 below, featuring (of course!) the one and only Adrian. Be warned — you may develop a ridiculous grin on your face by the end. READ FULL STORY »
