The wait is almost over! Timestorm, the final installment in Julie Cross’s Tempest trilogy, hits shelves Jan. 28. And we’ve got a first look at the cover! As the battle between the Tempest Division and Eyewall comes to an end, the world Jackson Meyer once knew is a place forever marked by the detrimental effects of time travel. Here’s what Cross had to say about the book when we talked earlier this year: “Pretty much all the remaining questions left—as far as the world and how it became what it became—are going to be answered in the first 30 percent of the book. And then the rest is going to be to deal with this new conflict that arises and another new one after that…. I think people will get everything that they want in book three. There’s a lot of questions answered in the beginning that just makes you feel like you can relax and just enjoy the rest of the book. There’s still tension and mystery up until the end, but I’m not just turning the pages to have this one question answered.” But why wait until January for the epic conclusion? Read an exclusive excerpt from Timestorm after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Love 'Divergent' by Veronica Roth'? 10 other teen reads you can't miss: 'Warm Bodies,' 'Tempest' and more
No matter what faction you’re in, there’s one thing YA lovers can agree on.
Veronica Roth’s debut novel Divergent was named the No. 1 novel for teens in an online vote held by American Library Association from Aug. 15 to Sept. 15. Other books to make the top ten included John Green’s The Fault of Our Stars, Marie Lu’s Legend and Sarah Dessen’s What Happened to Goodbye.
Divergent is a good read, but if you’re like me, you’ve probably already read it and many of the other books on this list. So I’ve taken the time to compile my own list of favorite teen-oriented books. A lot of them are recent, a few are older, but they’re all stellar novels and a great springboard for more amazing books. Check out 10 other teen reads that I recommend after the jump!
