Win Tahereh Mafi's Favorite Things Plus Her New Book 'Furthermore'!

Win Tahereh Mafi's Favorite Things Plus Her New Book 'Furthermore'!

We’re just about two weeks out from Tahereh Mafi‘s new novel, “Furthermore“, hitting bookshelves!

Take it from the JJJ Book Club), that “Furthermore” is a must-read.

Here’s the book’s summary: There are only three things that matter to twelve-year-old Alice Alexis Queensmeadow: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; magic and color, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him. But it’s been almost three years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she’s about to embark on one to find the other.

But bringing Father home is no small matter. In order to find him she’ll have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is a boy named Oliver whose own magical ability is based in lies and deceit–and with a liar by her side in a land where nothing is as it seems, it will take all of Alice’s wits (and every limb she’s got) to find Father and return home to Ferenwood in one piece. On her quest to find Father, Alice must first find herself–and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss.

We loved the book so much that we’re teaming up with Tahereh for a fun prize pack, filled with her favorite things.

What you’ll get: one (1) copy of “Furthermore”, a set of 3 Rifle Paper Co. Journals, a “Break the Rules” Letter Opener, a “But First, Coffee” Thermal Mug and a pair of “I Am Very Busy” Socks.

James Patterson's 'Maximum Ride' Movie Adaption Gets Poster & Trailer - Watch Now!

We are loving the debut poster for Maximum Ride!

The upcoming movie, based on James Patterson‘s book of the same name, which sparked a full book series of eight novels.

Starring Allie Marie Evans, Patrick Johnson, Lyliana Wray, Luke Gregory Crosby, Gavin Lewis, Tetona Jackson, Zayne Emory, Carrie Wampler and Peter O’Brien, Maximum Ride is the extraordinary journey of six DNA-enhanced young orphans with the ability to fly — on a mission to rescue the youngest of their flock while discovering the diabolical, scientific secrets of how they came to exist.

Their leader is Max, wise beyond her years, who must summon all her courage and acumen to outmaneuver the brutal half-human/half-wolf creations known as “Erasers,” confront her own inner demons and ultimately face a stunning betrayal.

Maximum Ride will debut on Digital HD on August 30th and On Demand and in select theaters on September 30th.

John Green Says No 'Looking For Alaska' Movie Will Be Made

We may not be getting that Looking For Alaska movie after all…

John Green took to Twitter this morning, addressing the movie based on his best selling book of the same name.

“As this has so many RTs, I guess I should say: No Looking for Alaska movie is forthcoming (to my knowledge anyway),” he wrote. “I have no control over the movie rights to Looking for Alaska. To my knowledge, Paramount (who own the rights) have no plans to make a film.”

This is really a bummer for JJJ, we loved the book and were looking forward to seeing it on the big screen.

TELL JJJ: How do you feel if no “Looking For Alaska” movie gets made?
