Web Bitz and Pieces: Falling in to Fall Edition

School is back in session, pumpkin spice lattes have arrived. All signs point to fall, except maybe the weather...

The web is full of interesting book related stuff, so let's get rolling....

Largehearted Boy, a great site for both books and music, talks to David Macinnis Gill about his new dystopia, "Black Hole Sun" and the soundtrack that he wrote it to. This book even gets good words from Suzanne Collins, Hunger Games Goddess herself.

Bookshelves of Doom shares an article about a cookie that this headgear makes taste like anything you want it to... one step away from Willy Wonka.

YA Takeover, a new site about YA books being turned into movies, has news on The DUFF and The Lonely Hearts Club's film possibilities...

The fantastic YA Book Site, Bildungsroman, points us to The Julian Game's website, where you can find character vlogs and more bonus features to go along with the book.

Want to know just how many hours a day the average teen is spending using some sort of media? 4ya has got the scoop, do you use this much?

The eagle-eyed Pop Culture Junkie has got the low down on a new cover for The Sweetheart of Prosper County,do you miss Charles Dickens, the rooster?

Readergrlz blogger, Melissa Walker, gives us the scoop on the cover to the upcoming new book from L.K. Madigan! We love Ms. Madigan around these parts, you can see her interview with TATAL here, and we can't wait to read her new book, The Mermaid's Mirror!

Finally, the always awesome, Green Bean Teen Queen, gives us her picks for can't miss reads for the fall. Not only that, but she has some great suggestions for what to read if the new books are checked out, this is a handy list and I will definitely be checking it twice!
