I just read about a new YA book called The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon it’s the first book in a seven-book series.  The interesting about this book is that Samantha is only 21 with a seven book deal.  People are already calling her the next JK Rowlings and wrote her first book when she was only fifteen.  Can you believe it?  I think this can be get inspiration to you all to really focus on your book.  This book is set in the year 2059 during a time when having special powers  is outlawed.

It looks like the new trend is definitely dystopia novel in the like The Hunger Games and Divergent.  These novels are set in future worlds where things are pretty bleak if not frightening for its citizens.  Having novels set in these worlds provides writers lots of room to be creative as they create new worlds.  I think it’s pretty cool and I can’t wait to get my hands on this book.
