Have you seen the trailer for Hallowed yet?
Hallowed is the much anticipated followup to Unearthly by Cynthia Hand which came out last year. Unearthly was one of the best angel books I have read and I will certainly be looking forward to the publication of Hallowed in January 2012. Cynthia will be doing a blog tour and she will be stopping by at Serendipity Reviews, so keep your eyes peeled.

By joining Scholastic’s online book communityYouAreWhatYouRead.com, you can make a Bookprint – a list of 5 books that have shaped your life. And for every Bookprint, Scholastic Book Clubs will donate a book. It is that easy to make a difference this holiday season!

- The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
- Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie
- East of Eden by John Steinbeck
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
With your help, Scholastic Book Clubs will donate up to one million books to Reach Out and Read, to help put books into the hands of children in need through pediatricians offices around the country. Now more than ever, Reach Out and Read needs our help. Recent government funding cuts has made it a major challenge for literacy organisations like Reach Out and Read to continue to get books into the hands of kids in need.
