Have you seen the new “Harry Potter” book covers from Bloomsbury?
Selected by both author J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury, the covers feature the art of Jonny Duddle.
“I’m hugely excited to work my way through the wonderful books. I couldn’t have asked for more enjoyable subject matter. It’s exciting, daunting and I feel the weight of responsibility, and I’m just hoping that my illustrations faithfully reflect the characters and world created by J.K.Rowling,” Jonny shared in a statement.
The new covers are expected to hit shelves in the UK on September 1st, and will also be available as eBooks on Pottermore.

Looks like we’ll be getting that “Maximum Ride” movie…sort of.
The eight-book fantasy franchise — which the JJJ Book Club confesses is one of our faves — is going to a miniseries on YouTube, Variety reports.
Written by James Patterson, the “Maximum Ride” series centers on six kids who have been genetically modified to be 98% human and 2% bird — giving them wings and the power of flight. After they escape from the lab facility known as The School and are pursued by their former captors.
“‘Maximum Ride’ has a massive global fan base and it is very exciting to think about connecting with them online,” Mr. Patterson shared in a statement. “I’m confident that CDS will help introduce the book series to a completely new audience as well.”
A few years ago, Columbia Pictures had acquired the film rights before it shifted over to Universal Pictures. However, a Universal rep said “Maximum Ride” is no longer in development at the studio.
WHAT DO YOU THINK of “Maximum Ride” becoming a mini-series?
While Shailene Woodley and Theo James are still shooting Insurgent in Atlanta, Summit Entertainment has already recruited screenwriter Noah Oppenheim to pen the adaption of Allegiant.
Noah, who also penned the script for The Maze Runner, is attached to just the first part of Allegiant, which is being split into two films, according to THR.
In the dystopian franchise written by Veronica Roth, people are divided into groups by certain values. Allegiant is expected to debut in theaters on March 18th, 2016 and Part 2 will hit on March 24th, 2017.
Allegiant sees Tris and Four discovering that the world they grew up in may all be a lie, and they’ll have to make hard choices that could change their lives forever.
Who’s ready to head back to school? Not yet, right? Summer just got started!
But we know back-to-school shopping is just around the corner and JJJ wants to help you out — with a sweet prize pack that includes a cool new back pack, a mini-mobile charger and a copy of James Patterson‘s “Homeroom Diaries”.
Out on July 21st, the book is about Margaret “Cuckoo” Clarke, who recently had a brief stay in a mental institution following an emotional breakdown, but she’s turning over a new leaf with her “Happiness Project”. She’s determined to beat down the bad vibes of the Haters, the Terror Teachers, and all of the trials and tribulations of high school by writing and drawing in her diary. And when life gets really tough, she works through her own moments of uncertainty through imaginary conversations with her favorite literary characters.
Cuckoo’s also got a nearly impossible mission: she, along with her misfit band of self-deprecating friends (who call themselves “the Freakshow”) decide to bridge the gap between warring cliques and “bring the Nations together”. Not everyone is so willing to join hands and get along, but Cuckoo never stops smiling…until one of her closest friends, pushed to desperation by a Hater prank, decides that enough is enough.
