If you've been paying even the teensiest bit of attention to the YA book buzz for fall 2013, then you've no doubt caught wind of the mad, rabid anticipation surrounding Cristin Terrill's debut novel, "All Our Yesterdays." (Seriously, the buzz for this book is so loud and wild that it sounds like a million angry bees jacked up on performance-enhancing drugs.) And in this final month before the book hits shelves, you're gonna want to get acquainted with the strange, scary, sci-fi surreality in which it takes place...which is, of course, where we come in. Because we've got the EXCLUSIVE first of four cinematic webisodes introducing you to the book's brave, bad-ass heroine. And ooooooh, she's in big trouble.

A girl imprisoned in a locked, bare cell, with a hard chair under her rear and a video camera in her face: This can only be Em. She's spent her life trying to stop the invention of a machine that will destroy the world, only to find herself behind locked doors, guarded by a mysterious man who wants to know what she knows, and who doesn't mind knocking her around to get it. Ugh! This guy is so RUDE and MEAN. And with nothing but a list of instructions to guide her—a list she doesn't remember writing, but that's written in her own hand—she'll need to find a way out of her prison in order to stop the apocalypse.

Intrigued? YEAH YOU ARE. And in the weeks leading up to the September release of "All Our Yesterdays," you'll be able to sneak three more webisode peeks at the excitement to come.

Mysterious hotties, eerie events and gothic supernatural romance in a crumbling mansion on the lonely coast of Maine: these are just a few of the treats that await readers in the pages of the soon-to-be-released "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" by April Genevieve Tucholke, and also just a few of the reasons why we totally want this book to be our new boyfriend. (Which is to say, as soon as it becomes available, we plan to spend all weekend in bed with our face buried all up in it.) But if you're not already good and pumped for the August release, then this oughta do it: We've got the EXCLUSIVE debut of a brand-new trailer that shares some of the bestest critical buzz for this upcoming YA series.

The story goes something like this: On a summer afternoon, in a small, sleepy New England town, a charming and beautiful stranger named River arrives on the doorstep of Violet White's big, ramshackle house—and when he takes up residence in their guest cottage, it's not long before he and Violet are feeling the forbidden love. But the appearance of River in town coincides with some seriously strange goings-on that hint at something sinister, or worse, balls-out eeeeevil in his visit. And Violet should be ascairt! But like they say: You stop fearing the devil when you're holding his hand...or kissing his face...or touching his butt. Especially touching his butt.

This morning, MTV had the special opportunity—nay, the privilege!—to debut the very first and EXCLUSIVE trailer for "Romeo & Juliet", the most recent big-screen reboot of the classic Shakespearean tragedy. And you'll want to waste no time in getting your peepers on it, because ooooooh, the costumes and sets are sumptuous, and ahhhhhh,
Douglas Booth
has a mouth like a piece of ripe pink fruit, and HEY! That's Sergeant Brody, from "Homeland," playing Juliet's angry dad! Oh man, this is gonna be so great.

The film stars Douglas and Hailee Steinfeld as the titular couple, and the trailer teases many of the moments that those who've read the play (in other words, everybody) are longing to see on screen. The masquerade ball where the pair meet for the first time, the confrontation between Romeo and Mercutio that ends in bloodshed, Juliet on her balcony (also offering a primo look at just how gorgeous this entire film is going to be), and plenty of passionate, yearning exchanges between the two young lovers—not to mention a last-minute clutch appearance of the "happy" dagger that's going to find its tragic home in a certain person's bosom.

PawnIf you've been at a literary loss since Aimee Carter published the final installment of her "Goddess Test" series, "The Goddess Inheritance," back in February, than today should prove promising. Aimee's preparing her next saga, the dystopian "Blackcoat Rebellion" series, and Hollywood Crush has your EXCLUSIVE look at the cover art for the first book, "Pawn"!

The tale takes place in a not-so-distant future in which society has been divided into classes, each signified by a number. Because of her dyslexia, teen Kitty Doe is branded a "III," making her part of the working class. Sent on assignment far from her family and boyfriend, Kitty's ready to go rogue...until the prime minister's niece dies under mysterious circumstances, and she is asked to impersonate her (through surgical alteration) in the "VII"-ranked ruling family. Intriguing, much?

If you've been waiting with baited breath for each new installment of Cassandra Clare's e-novella series "The Bane Chronicles," you've likely already gotten your hands on a copy of her latest with co-author Sarah Rees Brennan, "Vampires, Scones, and Edmund Herondale," which follows the warlock as he begins to broker peace talks between the Shadowhunters and Downworlders. But what you may not be aware of is that, in keeping with the previous audiobook releases, this latest installment has conjured one magical narrator: actor Andrew Scott.

If you watch the BBC series "Sherlock," then you likely know Andrew as the mysterious Moriarty, foe to the titular detective and his sidekick Watson. Here, however, he's playing tens of characters, one after another, yet still exuding plenty of aplomb. During a break from one of his sessions, the actor sat down with Cassandra and Sarah to dish about the recording process, in addition to turning the line of questioning on the two authoresses, inquiring about their co-writing process.

The Coldest Girl in ColdtownIf the literati had a cheerleading squad, they'd be stomping and clapping like the dickens right now to herald the nearly-here excitement of Holly Black's "The Coldest Girl in Coldtown." (I said, BRRRRR! It's cold in here! There must be some vampires in the atmosphere!)

Come September, we'll all be able to sink our teeth into the story of Tana, who survives an inexplicable massacre only to end up in Coldtown—a walled enclave in which humans trade the juice in their veins for a chance to party with predators—and a race against time to unravel the mysteries at the heart of the city. But today, lucky you, you can get an EXCLUSIVE first taste of the excitement to come...because we've got an excerpt that you can't read anywhere else.

If you somehow missed the excitement of "The Host" when it was in theaters, there's some behind-the-scenes stuff in this EXCLUSIVE featurette that'll have you running out the door, like a rabid madman, to snag it on DVD/Blu-ray today. Intrigued? Then get clicking, my friend, because only here can you see author Stephenie Meyer gushing over the amazing talents of Saoirse Ronan in bringing her characters to life—and only here can you find out whether Saoirse chickened out when it came time to do the scary stunt work in the action-packed film. (Hint: Not bloody likely. She's a boss.)

"The Host" tells the story of Melanie, one of the last uninfected survivors of an alien plague that infests the bodies of human hosts with the consciousness of invading "souls"; after being captured and claimed by the world's extraterrestrial overlords, a struggle for control between her human self and her alien overtaker finds her fleeing into the desert in search of other survivors, and the boy she once loved. It's a super-exciting love story with lots of apocalyptic thrills, and this glimpse into the making of the movie should be all the impetus you need to watch it immediately.

Mortal InstrumentsToday is anything but just another mundane Monday, because look what we have: the final one-sheet for the highly anticipated "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" adaptation, based on the best-selling novel by Cassandra Clare! And this is one dark and sexy bit of marketing collateral, to be sure.

Set against the tumultous backdrop of the New York City skyline rise our heroes (from right to left): Clary Fray (Lily Collins), Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower), Alec Lightwood (Kevin Zegers), Isabelle Lightwood (Jemima West) and Simon Lewis (Robert Sheehan), who according to the accompanying tagline are among the "chosen." And that swooping symbol behind them? Well, that's a rune—and a hint at Clary's covetable powers.

To All The Boys I've Loved BeforeAre you looking for a lovely book to grace your library next spring? Here's your chance to audition one for a primo spot on your shelf: a sneak EXCLUSIVE peek at the cover for Jenny Han's upcoming novel, "To All the Boys I've Loved Before"...which, if you've ever spent an afternoon laying around in your bedroom and mooning over a male, will look uncomfortably familiar, right down to the rumpled sheets, open diary and dreamy expression. Oh, boys. Sigh. Swoon.

"To All The Boys I've Loved Before" centers on young Lara Jean, who keeps a box of unmailed love letters safely stowed under her bed. Every boy she's ever crushed on has a note dedicated to him...which is all well and good, until Lara wakes up to discover the box emptied of its contents, and every letter in the hands of a guy who was never supposed to read it, and ohmigod seriously?! Nobody told us this was a horror novel! And according to the synopsis, it's "semi-autobiographical," which means that this exceptionally scary story is at least a little bit true. Excuse us while we go triple-password-protect our inboxes and burn our diaries with fire.
