The Next Big Things…

Leave a comment

It sounds like there are a few “next big things” in the children’s book world.  Check your local bookstore – brick or online – for these upcoming releases:

1. A Mutiny in Time is the first volume in a multi-platform series called Infinity Ring, a 39 Clues-style series. Mutiny in Time, written by James Dashner (Maze Runner) will be released on August 28 – with a new installment following every few months.

If you want to know more, here’s the link to the New York Times article:

2. Speaking of technology, there’s a lot of buzz about a book called Erebos. The new young adult novel, a high tech thriller, is an award-winning bestseller in Germany and the rights have been sold in 26 languages. I think the eye is kind of creepy – which is, I assume, the way it’s supposed to look! Here’s a link to the official Erebos book trailer:

3. And this was already a “big thing,” but if you’re waiting for the third – and final – installment of Ally Condie’s Matched Trilogy, Reached will be out on November 13, 2012.  I read Matched, but haven’t read Crossed yet so I have a little catching up to do before November!  Here’s the link to the official Matched website:
