'Twin Peaks' co-creator Mark Frost is penning a sequel novel

The illusory mystery of Twin Peaks lives on… again. Following last week’s announcement of Showtime’s reboot of the cult-favorite series comes the news that co-creator Mark Frost is penning a novel that picks up where the show left off in 1991. According to a press release from publisher Flatiron Books, The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks “reveals what has happened to the people of that iconic fictional town since we last saw them 25 years ago and offers a deeper glimpse into the central mystery that was only touched on by the original series.”

The bestselling author’s book is set to hit shelves in late 2015—before Frost’s TV revival airs in 2016. Frost is reuniting with his original Twin Peaks co-creator and co-executive producer David Lynch to make a Showtime limited series sequel of the critically acclaimed show. It is not yet clear whether the plot of the novel and the sequel series will be the same, but Frost is unequivocally thrilled at the chance to novelize his creation. “This has long been a dream project of mine that will bring a whole other aspect of the world of Twin Peaks to life, for old fans and new,” Frost said. “I couldn’t be more thrilled.”

The sequel to 'The 5th Wave' gets a title -- EXCLUSIVE

If you haven’t yet read Rick Yancey’s YA sci-fi thriller The 5th Wave, can I ask what you’re waiting for? Because it’s really that good. (Read Sara Vilkomerson’s review here.) I’m fairly confident I wouldn’t have even survived the first wave, let alone the fifth one. And equally so—due to my impatience—I’m not sure I am capable of surviving the wait for the much-anticipated sequel. (And yes, I realize that’s dramatic. But again, it’s that good, you guys.) The follow-up to Yancy’s Wave isn’t due until May 6, 2014, but I can at least whet your appetite with the title. Drumroll please…
Book 2 in the series will be titled: THE INFINITE SEA. Here, Yancey tells us why he chose that name and teases what he can about the book.  READ FULL STORY

See the cover of 'Revenge Wears Prada', sequel to 'Devil Wears Prada' -- EXCLUSIVE

If the sound of Meryl Streep murmuring “Ahn-dre-ah!” sends delicious chills down your spine, you may be counting down the days until the release of Lauren Weisberger’s sequel to The Devil Wears Prada, the 2003 roman à clef that inspired the hit 2006 film. EW has the first look at the cover of the hotly anticipated sequel, titled Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, which isn’t out until June 4.

Revenge Wears Prada picks up eight years after former Runway magazine assistant Andrea “Andy” Sachs parted ways with Miranda Priestly on bad terms. Andy is now editing The Plunge, the hottest bridal magazine around, alongside Emily, her one-time Runway nemesis turned current BFF. While Andy is planning her own wedding to Max, a handsome media scion, she remains haunted by her impeccably heeled former boss — and the magazine world being as small as it is, it’s only a matter of time before she runs into the legendary editrix once again.
