This one goes out to all the "Beautiful" people: Today marks the publication and audiobook release for Christina Lauren's latest "Beautiful Bastard" novel, "Beautiful Player," and we not only have an EXCLUSIVE excerpt for your aural pleasure, but also an interview with the authors and narrator Grace Grant!
In "Beautiful Player" we meet Hanna Bergstrom, a New York transplant who moves to the city to pursue graduate studies. But the education she really needs is in fostering a healthy social life. Her older brother tasks his long-time bud (and seasoned womanizer) Will Sumner with the honors. Will's known Hanna (otherwise known as "Ziggy") since she was a kid, but things are different when they reunite all these years later. And by "different" we mean "sexy."
If you've been following the excitement of Marie Lu's "Legend" series, then you know that things are about to get serious leading into the third and final book. And if you're wondering just how serious, let us be the first to tell you: The epic conclusion to this dystopian trilogy is at least as serious as a guy vaulting over two concrete barriers in a row like some kind of spring-loaded monkey. How do we know? 'Cause we've got the exclusive first peek at the book trailer for "Champion"! And now, SO DO YOU.
It hasn't been an easy time for June and Day, the heroes of "Legend." For two books now, they've been in the thick of manipulation, betrayal and desperate attempts to uncover the truth about their war-torn nation and its endless conflicts with surrounding countries. But now, the pair are finally back in the good graces of the Republic: June in an elite government position, and Day in a high-ranking military role. But after so much struggle and so many secrets, don't count on a happy, easy ending just yet. Before a peace can be broached, plague sweeps through the border cities and threatens the start of a brand new war—a war that June knows how to stop, but at a terrible cost. Eeeeep! With a tease like that, it's a good thing that this book hits shelves in just five short days...and it's a good thing we didn't have any plans for next week, because we're gonna be hiding out in a blanket fort with "Champion" til the bitter end.
We're just one sleep away from the big season-five premiere of "The Vampire Diaries," and, well, it'll be a miracle if we get any shut-eye because we're just that excited. After all, there are big changes in store for our favorite Mystic Falls residents—or should we say, former residents? Elena and Caroline are kissing their town good-bye to give higher learning a go at Whitmore College, while those dastardly Originals are heading down to the Big Easy to reclaim their throne in New Orleans. (Better hire someone to update that population sign, council.)
Given all of this upheaval, what exactly, then, can we expect from the premiere episode? We posed that question to stars Kat Graham and Candice Accola recently, and they offered up a few interesting tidbits. We won't spoil the video above, but suffice it to say refrigerators, bangs and shirtless boys are involved. Just watch.
Hey Hollywood Crush readers,
Kiera Cass here to let you know finally the day has come—the cover for "The One" is blinding your eyes with its glory! I’ve loved all the covers, and I know you have, too. But I’ve got to say there’s just something special about this one. Maybe it’s that look in America’s eyes like she knows something we don’t. The pose is so reminiscent of the first book, but it carries a completely different feeling. Like maybe the first time around she was keeping everyone else away from her, but now she’s got something in her back pocket and she’s not showing it until she’s ready. It’s mysterious and confident, and I adore it!
Welcome to Whitmore College!
The CW has released a slew of new images from the season-five premiere of "The Vampire Diaries"—appropriately titled "I Know What You Did Last Summer" (shout-out to Kevin Williamson!)—capturing Elena and Caroline's first days as college co-eds.
"They're really committed to enjoying life and enjoying college and being college freshmen. It's a good plan—too bad it's not going to work," executive producer Julie Plec told Hollywood Crush regarding the girls' matriculation. "Of course things will go instantly, terribly wrong, because that's what always happens, but they remain committed to trying to have a true college experience and it bonds them in a really good way."
We've got some magical news for all you caster kids: "Beautiful Creatures" authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl are going back to Gatlin for an all-new spin-off series called "Dangerous Creatures"!
The series follows fan favorite characters (and on-again-off-again couple) Link and Ridley as they embark on fresh (and sure to be epic!) adventures. The series kicks off with the enovella "Dangerous Dream," available for download on December 17, followed by the release of the first book, "Dangerous Creatures," on May 6, 2014.
Unsurprisingly, we were so excited by the news that we just had to hop on the phone with Kami and Margaret to get all of the details. Keep reading after the jump for our interview with the authors!
The teasing is finally over! (Or, has it just begun?!) After months and months and months of sneak peek images from Dior Homme's ad campaign featuring "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson, the fashion house has finally released an "Uncensored Official Director's Cut." And you'll definitely want to check out the clip if any of the following pique your interest:
-Robert Pattinson looking hot while smoking a cigarette in a bathtub.
-Robert Pattinson looking hot while making out with a model in an elevator.
-Robert Pattinson looking hot while making out with a model in a bed.
-Robert Pattinson looking hot while driving a car through the surf.
-Robert Pattinson looking hot.
Oh, those maddening minxes at Dior! The fashion house continues to tease us with images from "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson's upcoming campaign, and we're positively slobbering over this latest batch!
The black-and-white snaps (which you can find at the Dior Homme website), feature the heartthrob alongside a lucky lady model in various swoony scenarios—snuggling in bed, romping on the beach, canoodling in an elevator—all teasing the September 1 release of the ad.
The big-screen adaptation of Richelle Mead's best-selling "Vampire Academy" won't take a bite out of the box office until February 14, 2014, but thanks to the author's spin-off series, "Bloodlines," fans will have something to sink their teeth into while they wait.
The fourth chapter in alchemist Sydney Sage's tale—"The Fiery Heart"—hits bookstore shelves November 19, and Hollywood Crush has your EXCLUSIVE first look at the novel's second chapter!
As you'll recall from "Indigo Spell" (SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVEN'T READ IT!), Sydney made the bold decision to defy her strict upbringing and become romantically entangled with bad-boy Moroi Adrian Ivashkov. (We could hardly blame her...) "The Fiery Heart" picks up a couple of months later, and things are as complicated as ever—what with Sydney's little sister, Zoe, now at the academy and Sydney delving deeper into her magical powers. What is new in "The Fiery Heart"? Well, each chapter alternates between Sydney and Adrian's point of view, meaning you'll get a new perspective into the spirit user's psyche. (And what a beautiful mind it is...)
