Books To Look Out For

Over the last decade (give or take a few years), we have seen a few great series that have catapulted to the top of the Best-Seller lists.

Now some of you may or may not like some of these books, but facts are facts.

J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter.
Suzanne Collins and The Hunger Games.
Stephenie Meyer and Twilight.
E.L. James and 50 Shades of Grey.
Stieg Larsson and The Millennium Series.

But now that it is August 1st, it's time to look out for the next big series, that is set to debut this month.

What's that? If it hasn't even put out one book yet, how can it be the next big thing?

Well, simple. All the experts say that it is. And we know that they can't be wrong!

The author is Samantha Shannon.

18 years old from London, England, and the writer of The Bone Season.

This seven part series, of which, the first books movie rights have already been bought, will come out over the next few years, with the first book due out August 20th.

For a brief summary, let's turn to Forbes Magazine:

This book will be the first installment in what will eventually be a seven-part series about clairvoyants in a dystopian future struggling against a totalitarian government and its supernatural overlords.

All I can say is, it sounds awesome to me!

Hope the rest of you feel the same.
