Stephenie Meyer to Release new Book

Welp.

Stephenie Meyer is releasing a new book later this year. But thankfully it has nothing to do with werewolves or vampires or poorly written female characters. It’s actually a thriller.

Wait, what?

Yes. The author who gave the world Bella and Edward is now giving us something we all want. A novel for adults. I was surprised when I read it’ll be her second novel written for adults. The Host was evidently the first one, which was always shelved in the young adult section at my store.

I think it’d be wonderful if she does what other prominent authors have done and starts writing in every genre imaginable. Because we need more of those authors, right?

Do you have any interest in Stephenie Meyer’s new book The Chemist?

Harry Potter Book Eight is Coming

Do I even need to say more!? The eighth book in the series is coming THIS year. It’s based on the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child set to debut on July 30. The book will be released on Harry and Rowling’s birthday the following day.

It is already the top selling book on Amazon, and will undoubtedly be one of the top selling books of 2016, but I think the opening day sales record set by book seven is safe.

The story takes place nineteen years after Harry’s time at Hogwarts. He’s working for the Ministry of Magic now and his youngest son is grappling with his own problems.

Are you excited for this new book? I am. And I’ve only read the first two in the series.

Sarah Palin Holds a Book Signing Where?!

Evidently Sarah Palin has just released a new book. Which isn’t all that surprising considering that she is all but out of the public eye. But eh, politicians write books all the time.

What makes this a bit odd is that she recently held a book signing in California. I’m not sure I’d have picked that particular state for her signing, but I’m also not in charge of anything. It wasn’t at a bookstore. It wasn’t at a political event. It was at a gun range.

Wait, what?

Yes, you read that correctly. Sarah Palin held a book signing at a gun range in California. Why? I’m sure she’s got plenty of support from those in favor of gun rights, but I just don’t see the point. If she wants to make a statement on guns, then she could just as easily make an actual statement, right?

I just think it was mostly done to attract a certain amount of attention. And it worked. She ran out of books to sell because the line of people was so long. I won’t even comment on why people would even be following her at this point. Oh well.

Do you have any thoughts on having a book signing at a gun range?

A New Release I Won’t be Reading

Donald Trump’s newly released book.

I don’t know about you, but I haven’t bought into the notion that America isn’t a great country. There are plenty of problems facing the country, but does he really think he’s got the answers to questions facing the country as a whole, and especially the Oval Office? Because I don’t. And I don’t think any one person has all the answers.

I’ve mentioned before that I’ve never read political books, and it’s safe to say I won’t be starting with Trump’s.

Are you interested in reading about this crippled America he claims to know how to make great again?

One Last Bit of Twilight News

I wrote last week about the new book in the series in which the genders of most of the characters are swapped. Well I learned something else about the book.

I was bouncing around WordPress for a bit the other day and I came across a review. So I read it. It was not good. It appears that Meyer put in even less work than I expected. The text of the book appears to be the exact same. She didn’t actually rewrite anything. There were a few things that were changed because Meyer figured a guy would see them differently than a girl, but most of the text wasn’t.

I think it’s both arrogant and disrespectful. Because people are buying this book. But it’s not really anything new. Just some stupid names changed. I think I’m forever done discussing Stephenie Meyer after reading this. What do you think?

Pharrell’s new Book is not a Book

Remember a little while back when Pharrell signed a multi book deal? Well the first book is out. And it’s not a book.

I understand that books written for young children usually focus on pictures rather than a million words on each page. But what’s been released looks like the publisher did the least amount of work possible. The book titled Happy after his hit song is nothing we haven’t read or heard. It’s the lyrics to the song spread over maybe 20 pages. With random photos of children to accompany them.

I mean, someone could make a YouTube video and it would come out better than this. Oh well. For once I actually have a problem with a celebrity book. Because there was no effort by anyone to actually write something new.

Am I crazy? What do you think of this new “book” just being the song lyrics?

Another Twilight Book?

Oh man. Yesterday I finally got to reading some blogs and I found out something interesting. There’s going to be a new book in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. But she won’t just be adding more to the story. Nope.

It’s a gender swap. Not sure if that’s what it’s called, but basically Bella and Edward will be renamed and switch places. So that Meyer can prove that Bella was just a “human in distress” and not a damsel in distress. I’ll sum up my thoughts: , “Um, why?”.

We know why, of course. Money. For everyone involved. And didn’t E.L. James just do something similar with Grey? She didn’t switch the characters completely, but she did switch perspectives.

Are you looking forward to this new book by Stephenie Meyer?
