More Bookish News (Patrick Ness!)

After another busy week at college, this weekend is going to be even busier. Anyone else feel like there is literally not enough time in the day?

Today, I found out that Patrick Ness is releasing two books next year - an adult fiction and YA.
First up, his Adult Fiction book, The Crane Wife, which I believe he wrote a while ago but is publishing it now, has now got a cover and release day.
It's being released on 28th March 2013 in the UK AND AUSTRALIA. Here's the cover:

Synopsis: The extraordinary happens every day...

One night, George Duncan - decent man, a good man - is woken by a noise in his garden. Impossibly, a great white crane has tumbled to earth, shot through its wing by an arrow. Unexpectedly moved, George helps the bird, and from the moment he watches it fly off, his life is transformed.

The next day, a kind but enigmatic woman walks into George's shop. Suddenly a new world opens up for George, and one night she starts to tell him the most extraordinary story.

Wise, romantic, magical and funny, The Crane Wife is a hymn to the creative imagination and a celebration of the disruptive and redemptive power of love.

Secondly, Patrick Ness announced on his website that he is releasing a YA novel entitled MORE THAN THIS next September 2013. AND. It will be published in the UK. And the US. And Australia and New Zealand ALL AT THE SAME TIME. 

So those Patrick Ness fans - whoop!
Patrick Ness is a favourite author of mine and after meeting him twice, he was really lovely. Here are my reviews of his already published books in the Chaos Walking series (which is currently being made into a movie):
The New World (#0.5)
The Knife of Never Letting Go (#1)
The Ask and the Answer (#2)
Monsters of Men (#3)


Also, a heads up that I noticed today that Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry is only 20p on Amazon! It's been one of the most talked about books on the blogosphere (here's what I thought) so worth so little.
