The Saturday Post: Harry Potter, covers, trailers & more

*Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is already smashing box office records, debuting with the best-ever midnight release to date. Expect more records as the weekend progresses.

*Now that the Harry Potter franchise is coming to a close (pause for *sniffles*), author J.K. Rowling says she’s looking to publishing some of the new writing she’s been working on in the last few years.

* Jackson Pearce has announced some exciting news — she has a NEW book in her Sisters Red/fairy tale adaptation series coming out next year. Fathomless is a new twist on The Little Mermaid.

* Cassandra Clare has shared a new teaser from the upcoming Clockwork Prince in the form of the entire prologue!

* Simon & Schuster has debuted the official website for the new Fury series by Elizabeth Miles, coming August 30th.

* Check out the newly-unveiled cover for Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi & get the scoop from Hollywood Crush:

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old-girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting as The Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel.

* There’s another new cover reveal, this time for Lisa McMann’s new YA, coming in Spring 2012, Dead to You:

Ethan was abducted from his front yard when he was just seven years old. Now, at sixteen, he has returned to his family. It’s a miracle… at first. Then the tensions start to build. His reintroduction to his old life isn’t going smoothly, and his family is tearing apart all over again. If only Ethan could remember something, anything, about his life before, he’d be able to put the pieces back together. But there’s something that’s keeping his memory blocked. Something unspeakable…

*Love the Shiver series by Maggie Stiefvater? The final book in the trilogy, Forever, just hit stores — but you can check out Maggie’s very own sketches of main characters Sam & Grace!
