From the newsdesk:

If you have an iPhone and you’re into Choose Your Own Adventures (or you were when you were a kid), then you might be very pleased to hear that you can get a CYO iPhone app. Most excellent. We of course have heaps of the old fashioned book-thingies in the library. How very luddite of us.

More on book covers – people are getting sick of pink! (After all, thanks to paranormal romances, black is the new pink.) Not sick of pink cars, though: pink cars are handy to have if you don’t want your car stolen.

For Artemis Fowl fans: Eoin Colfer is definitely winding up the happenings of the teenage evil genius, apparently (maybe because things got kissy with Holly?). The latest (and second to last) in the series, Artemis Fowl and the Atlantis Complex is available for borrowing now.

There having been six-ish short months between the movies New Moon and Eclipse, we were surprised to hear that the world will wait one whole year between Breaking Dawn 1 and Breaking Dawn 2. How will the world cope? In the mean time, The short second life of Bree Tanner gets a thumbs up from our buyers/reviewers (reserve a copy, it’s a quick read so you might not have to wait too long).

More on the City Of books by Cassandra Clare: having originally thought that these were a trilogy, and that she’d moved on to the Infernal Devices trilogy (the first of which, Clockwork Angel, is due out in a couple of months)… and then that she was writing just one more City Of book (City of Fallen Angels, April 2011), … we were surprised (but not too much) to hear that, actually, now Clary and Jace and co will be going strong for a few years yet: there’s more, or more more – two more to be exact.

And finally, two YA books are finalists for the nicely-titled Gold Dagger Award (for mystery writing, see?), including Blacklands by Belinda Bauer, which we’ve got.
