Throughout 2020, it’s been safe to say that we’re always in need of some good news. I can’t believe I haven’t done a Fangirl News Round Up since May. Back in the spring, I really enjoyed talking about book news and miscellaneous happenings about TV, movies, music, and other random fandoms because we all needed some exciting things to cling to especially then. Today, I’ll mostly be covering bookish news and cover reveals.
If you’re need for something non-bookish, my latest Netflix obsession is Emily in Paris, if you haven’t already binged it on Netflix like I did this weekend! Although I watched it when it premiered on cable this year, I also plan on rewatching Season 6 of Schitt’s Creek.It’s once again among the top 10 most popular shows on Netflix, I think largely because it absolutely SWEPT the Emmys and the final season finally hit Netflix.
Bookish News & Reveals
I usually categorize book related news by new announcements, release dates, and cover reveals, but so much news from this September and October so far overlap in those categories
Any Way the Wind Blows Release Date
Rainbow Rowell announced on her social media last Thursday that Any Way the Wind Blows will be coming out on July 6, 2021. She also has more news coming out this Wednesday, so keep an eye on her social – I’m thinking it’s either going to be the Any Way the Wind Blows cover or an update on the Eleanor & Park film adaptation.

A Court of Silver Flames Cover Reveal & Release Date
Sarah J. Maas announced via Instagram in September that A Court of Silver Flames will be released on February 16, 2021, pushed back from its original January 2020 release due to printer restrictions. A Court of Silver Flames is the fourth book and the first spinoff book starring Nesta and Cassian in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I know some people are feeling pretty meh about the cover, but I don’t have any particular feelings about it as of right now? I don’t plan on buying the redesigned ACOTAR covers, but I do appreciate that this is part of the publisher’s effort to make it known that the new ACOTAR books are adult and not YA. I think they’re trying to do the same with the first ACOTAR trilogy. I’m hoping the February 2021 release means that we could potentially have Crescent City #2 in Fall 2021, or at least early 2022.
