What's Up in YA

Your YA Book News and New YA Books

Hey YA friends! I hope the week is treating your kindly and that you’ve got stacks and stacks of books! I am excited about some releases this week, which I gushed about on All the Books with Liberty, including Perfectly Parvin and The Marvelous Mirza Girls! But first, here’s some news!

There’s going to be a second Enola Holmes movie and Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill will be in it!

Check out the Panic trailer!

Reese Witherspoon’s new book club pick is Tokyo Ever After by Emiko Jean!

This might only be applicable to the younger ones among us, but Pizza Hut is bringing back its Book It program for the summer, for grades Pre-K to 6th!

There’s going to be a Vampire Academy TV series! Based on Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, the series will have ten episodes and run on Peacock! There was also a movie adaptation starring Zoey Deutch a few years back, which is campy and hilarious, and I loved. Sign me up for more!
