Our new Author Takeover comes from New York Times–bestselling author of "The Lunar Chronicles" Marissa Meyer, with her new novel, "Heartless". The "Potter" fandom knows all about characters with a predetermined fate, and we're well used to the idea of the Chosen One. In Marissa's "Heartless", we have a vision of Wonderland like none you've seen before.

When Mary Adams sees Millais’ depiction of the tragic Ophelia, a whole new world opens up for her. Determined to find out more about the beautiful girl in the painting, she hears the story of Lizzie Siddal – a girl from a modest background, not unlike her own, who has found fame and fortune against the odds. Mary sets out to become a Pre-Raphaelite muse, too, and reinvents herself as Persephone Lavelle.

The first of our March Author Takeovers comes from Gemma Fowler. Her new novel, "Moonlight", is an edge-of-your-seat sci-fi thriller with a contemporary voice. Gemma would be pleased as punch to find herself on the highest tower of Hogwarts. Her soul is still and always will be 13 years old, and her characters embrace teenage rebellion and refusal to blindly comply with authority, much like our Golden Trio.

Our final February Author Takeover comes from Lisa Williamson, whose second novel, "All About Mia", is out now from David Fickling Books. In this standalone after her first book, "The Art of Being Normal", Lisa now turns to look at family dynamics and the structure of sibling personality types.

Just imagine: what would your year look like if you read only marginalized authors? What would the world look like if we all did the same? And how many books do you read each year, anyway? If it’s more than 30, I challenge you to pick up every one of these. I know you can do it!

Today, our Author Takeover is by Sharon Gosling, whose Scandi Noir YA horror novel, FIR, is out now as part of the RED EYE series from Stripes Books. Set in the middle of an isolated ancient forest in Sweden, FIR has a menacing and claustrophobic atmosphere that haunts the misadventures of a family stranded, surrounded by the might and magic of trees.

To celebrate book lovers everywhere, this month we have a series of Author Takeovers. The first comes from the hilarious Maz Evans, whose book, "Who Let The Gods Out?", is a new, exciting, and brilliantly British, Percy Jackson-esque adventure – the first in a series centered on the Olympian gods.

This month's Author Takeover comes from Alwyn Hamilton discussing the trials and tribulations of writing a second book. The characters from her first book, Rebel of the Sands, return with Traitor to the Throne. We have three copies up for grabs for readers in UK & Ireland, find out more below!

This month's Author Takeover comes from the queen of retellings with a twist, Zoë Marriott, discussing her new novel, "Barefoot on the Wind", a darkly magical "Beauty and the Beast"–inspired story set in fairy tale Japan.

This month's Author Takeover comes from Joshua Khan, author of "Shadow Magic", out this month from Scholastic UK. "Shadow Magic" takes the idea of the Chosen One and flips it on its head…what if you were the dark side’s Chosen One?

Book Review: “Right Ho, Jeeves” by P.G. Wodehouse
Book Reviews / June 26, 2014

While some of the "Jeeves" books are collections of short stories, this one is a solid (though not very long) novel. Its plot, similar to many other adventures of Bertie and his man Jeeves, has to do with mending two broken betrothals, saving an endangered marriage, distributing prizes at a boys' school, and staving off the resignation of a supremely gifted French chef, all upon a summer holiday in the Worcestershire countryside…

As in his previous two adventures, he finds trouble brewing in a misnamed California coastal town.

Book Review: “Scumble” by Ingrid Law
Book Reviews / June 18, 2014

In her debut novel "Savvy", Ingrid Law introduced us to the big, unconventional Beaumont family, in which each child manifests a unique superpower (called a "savvy") on his or her 13th birthday. The challenge is to recognize what that savvy is and scumble it, or figure out how to control it, before something big happens. Otherwise, people could get hurt, or even worse, outsiders might find out about the family's secret. In this …

And so a racy, funny series of…

Book Review: “All the Rage” by F. Paul Wilson
Book Reviews / June 16, 2014

In the fourth "Repairman Jack" novel, the rakoshi are back. Those were the blue-skinned, yellow-eyed, man-eating demons from Indian prehistory, who terrorized Jack and his loved ones in "The Tomb". Now the last rakosh—the one who left his claw-marks on Jack's chest—has turned up in a freak show at the same quaint Long Island town where Jack battled the otherness in "Conspiracies". Jack is torn between killing it, to make sure it…

Book Review: “Geek Fantasy Novel” by E. Archer
Book Reviews / June 13, 2014

Ralph is a geek, but not the type who would ordinarily dream of becoming the hero in a fantasy novel. In fact, Ralph's boring parents have done their best to instill in him a flat, unheroic, unimaginative character. Their reason is that it is dangerous for members of their family to make wishes. The closest thing to a wish that has ever crossed Ralph's mind is his dream of being a computer game designer. I know, right? What a ge…
