Rainbow Rowell’s ‘Fangirl’ has been out for over a year now, but the buzz around the book has yet to die down. Not only is Rowell writing a fantasy novel based on the fanfiction series mentioned within the book, but ‘Fangirl’ is getting a new hardcover edition. Well, three new hardcover editions, if you count each color variant a different edition.
Barnes & Noble buyers will get a berry pink cover. Indigo Chapters buyers will get a yellow cover. Buyers at all other retailers will get a bubblegum pink cover. The hardcover, ribbon-marked book will also feature fan art and an excerpt of Rowell’s upcoming novel ‘Carry On’. Buy ‘Fangirl’ on Amazon.

Book Deal of the Week
Meagan Spooner is the co-author of ‘These Broken Stars,’ one of my favorite books of the past three years. Her next standalone is a fantasy called ‘Hunted,’ which is a reimagining of both “Beauty and the Beast” and Russia’s “Firebird” folk talke.
I’m a sucker for retellings, and to have one of my favorite authors writing one? Yes, please!
However, we have a long wait for this one – winter 2017! – so you have plenty of time to go and read every other book she’s published. Buy ‘These Broken Stars‘ on Amazon.
