Sneak Peeks

Renée Ahdieh Just Made a HUGE Announcement

So a few days ago, Renée Ahdieh, author of The Wrath and the Dawn and Flame in the Mist (among several other must-reads), *might* have hinted at some special news coming our way pretty soon.


Naturally, everyone couldn’t help but speculate.


What could it be?

A movie adaption?

A special edition of something?

A corgi puppy?


Okay, so sadly it wasn’t the corgi puppy, but it’s almost as just good.


It all went down something like this:


Some people *might* responded in the most subtle of ways.


While others *might* have lost their minds just a little.

And by that, we mean the Instagram comment section looked a little something like this.

The Beautiful


The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh IS COMING IN 2019.



Guys. The trailer. THE. TRAILER.


Synopsis? We got that too.


In 1872, New Orleans is a city ruled by the dead. But to 17-year-old Celine Rousseau, New Orleans provides her a refuge after she’s forced to flee her life as a dressmaker in Paris. Taken in by the sisters of the Ursuline convent along with six other girls, Celine quickly becomes enamored with the vibrant city from the music to the food to the soirées and — especially — to the danger. She soon becomes embroiled in the city’s glitzy underworld, known as La Cour des Lions, after catching the eye of the group’s leader, the enigmatic Sèbastien Saint Germain. When the body of one of the girls from the convent is found in the lair of La Cour des Lions, Celine battles her attraction to him and suspicions about Sèbastien’s guilt along with the shame of her own horrible secret. When more bodies are discovered, each crime more gruesome than the last, Celine and New Orleans become gripped by the terror of a serial killer on the loose — one Celine is sure has set her in his sights . . . and who may even be the young man who has stolen her heart. As the murders continue to go unsolved, Celine takes matters into her own hands and soon uncovers something even more shocking: an age-old feud from the darkest creatures of the underworld reveals a truth about Celine she always suspected simmered just beneath the surface.


Murder mystery.




PSA: You’re never too old for vampire books.


Renée agrees.


And it turns out you guys are about as excited as we are.


So the reactions are pretty much what you’d expect.

But tbh some people gave up and responded in GIFs and if that’s not a mood we don’t know what is.


And can we please talk about all the fellow author love going on?






ALL the author love.


Don’t even get us STARTED about Sabaa’s early review.
