JJJ is totally geeking out over here after learning that author Margaret Stohl is entering the Marvel world!
The Beautiful Creatures co-writer announced at 2014 Comic-Con that she landed a book deal with Disney Hyperion that will explore the Marvel universe for the young adult audience.
While details are still being kept under wraps, Margaret took to Twitter to express her excitement.
“I’ve made two #Marvel games- #Spiderman and #FantasticFour. So #MarvelYA is like coming full circle for me, couldn’t be happier. #nerdgirl,” Margaret tweeted, later adding, “So I take it you heard my news? Thanks for the love, guys! My readers are the best! We’re going to have a lot of fun! #MarvelYA”
We can’t wait to find out more! Be sure to keep an eye on the JJJ Book Club for more details!
ARE YOU EXCITED to find out more about Margaret Stohl’s next book project?
There are only a few days left until the return of dark caster Ridley Duchannes and her Linkubus!
Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl‘s “Dangerous Creatures” is hitting shelves next week and to celebrate that and the Wanning Gibbous Moon in the sky tonight, the JJJ Book Club spoke with the authors about bringing back the love-hate couple we all couldn’t get enough of.
“More than anything, ‘Dangerous Creatures’ was a labor of love. Really, Kami and I missed the world of the Casters, and the characters who had become like family to us both. When we found ourselves traveling together to promote ‘Beautiful Creatures’ (to Paris for Kami‘s birthday, and to Rome for mine!) all we could talk about was what had been going on in Gatlin since our series had wrapped,” Margaret told JJJ.
She continued, “We were like the Sisters, the oldest ladies in Gatlin County, who just couldn’t get enough of the town gossip. Before long, we knew what we had to do — write it out — and ‘Dangerous Creatures’ was the result. The moment we followed Ridley and Link to New York City to make it big in the music scene, we knew trouble was on the way. And it so was! Ridley and Link’s story was every bit as fun and romantic and crazy as we were expecting, and we hope our readers around the world think so too. More to come!”
Kami added, “Returning to the world of Beautiful Creatures was so much fun! The fact that we were writing about Link and Ridley — two fan favorites — made it feel like the ultimate gift for our readers.”

Up for some late night reading?
Authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl will be kicking off their book tour for “Dangerous Creatures” soon and since everyone can’t get to them in the select-city stops, they’ve just released the first five chapters from the book!
The JJJ Book Club officially declares them the best authors ever!
“Dangerous Creatures” follows Ridley Duchannes, who is nobody’s heroine. She’s a Dark Caster, and a Siren. She can make you do things. Anything. You can’t trust her, or yourself, when she’s around. And she’ll be the first to tell you to stay away—especially if you’re going to do something as stupid as fall in love with her. Lucky for Ridley, her wannabe rocker Wesley “Link” Lincoln never listens to anyone.

Author Kami Garcia was in a giving and teasing mood over the holidays.
The “Beautiful Creatures” writer teased her Tumblr followers with a few quotes from the upcoming “Dangerous Creatures” book, a companion book to the bestselling “BC” book series.
Read the excerpt below:
“I’ve been called a lot of things, but what I really am is a survivor — and while there are more than a few stupid Sirens, tgere are zeri stupid survivors.
“Consider my record. I outlasted some of the Darkest Casters and creatures alive. I withstood whole months of Stonewall Jackson HIgh School. Beyond that, I survived a thousand terrible love songs written by one Wesley Lincoln, a cluelss Mortal boy who became an equally clueless quarter Incubus. And who, by the way, is not the most gifted musician.
“For a while, I survived wanting to write him a love song of my own. That was harder.
“This Siren gig is mean to be a one-way street. Ask Odysseus and two thousand years’ word of dead sailors if you don’t believe me.”
“Dangerous Creatures” is out on May 20th. ARE YOU EXCITED?
Check out the exclusive reveal of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl‘s new novel, “Dangerous Creatures”!
Out on May 20th, 2014, Ridley Duchannes is nobody’s heroine. She’s a Dark Caster, and a Siren. She can make you do things. Anything. You can’t trust her, or yourself, when she’s around. And she’ll be the first to tell you to stay away—especially if you’re going to do something as stupid as fall in love with her.
Lucky for Ridley, her wannabe rocker Wesley “Link” Lincoln never listens to anyone. Link doesn’t care if Rid’s no good for him, and takes her along when he leaves small-town Gatlin to follow his rock star dream. He teams up with a ragtag group of Dark Casters, and when the band scores a gig at a hot underground club, it looks like all of Link’s dreams are about to come true.
But New York City is a dangerous place for both Casters and Mortals, and soon Ridley realizes that Link’s bandmates are keeping secrets. With bad-boy club owner Lennox Gates on her heels, Rid is determined to find out the truth. What she discovers is worse than she could have imagined: Link has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay. With their lives on the line, what’s a Siren to do?

Check out the cover of Margaret Stohl‘s “Idols”!
In the follow up to “Icons”, Dol, Ro, Tima, and Lucas are the four Icon Children, the only humans immune to the Icon’s power to stop a human heart.
Now that Los Angeles has been saved, things are more complicated – and not just because Dol has to choose between Lucas and Ro, the two great loves of her life. As she flees to a resistance outpost hidden beneath a mountain, Dol makes contact with a fifth Icon Child, if only through her visions.
When Dol and the others escape to Southeast Asia in search of this missing child, Dol’s dreams, feelings and fears collide in an epic showdown that will change more than just four lives — and stop one heart forever.
“Icons” is set to hit shelves on July 8, 2014.
