Hello Fellow Readers,

I am putting together in this post recent (and YA related) news I saw around. It’s part of a couple of posts/projects I want to trial in this blog. I can’t promise it will be a weekly section for now but I will do my best.

📌My Life with the Walter Boys by Ali Novak is getting a Netflix adaptation.

My Life with the Walter Boys centers on the prim, proper, and always perfect Jackie Howard. When her world is turned upside down by tragedy, Jackie must learn to cut loose and be part of a family again.

Jackie does not like surprises. Chaos is the enemy! The best way to get her successful, busy parents to notice her is to be perfect. The perfect look, the perfect grades-the perfect daughter. And then…

Surprise #1: Jackie’s family dies in a freak car accident.

Surprise #2: Jackie has to move cross-country to live with the Walters-her new guardians.

Surprise #3: The Walters have twelve sons. (Well, eleven, but Parker acts like a boy anyway)

Now Jackie must trade in her Type A personality and New York City apartment for a Colorado ranch and all the wild Walter boys who come with it. Jackie is surrounded by the enemy-loud, dirty, annoying boys who have no concept of personal space. Okay, several of the oldest guys are flat-out gorgeous. But still annoying. She’s not stuck-up or boring-no matter what they say. But proving it is another matter. How can she fit in and move on when she needs to keep her parents’ memory alive by living up to the promise of perfect?

Bitter exes.

📌 Fans of the Cursebreakers trilogy, don’t despair. Brigid Kemmerer announced a new trilogy set in the same world, four years later after the events of A Vow So Bold and Deadly.

📌 And apparently Tahereh Mafi is not done with the Shatter Me saga, as she announced a new novella – Believe Me. And if you are like me a massive fan of Warnette, you can rejoice! It’s going to be completely from Warner’s POV (I am screaming!!!)

That’s it for this round.
