Welcome to Bookish Buzz, your monthly guide to all things bookish. I know that this post is a little late, but life has gotten in the way of writing. Some awesome announcements were made in January, and I cannot wait to share all of them with you. Lots of books will be adapted into TV shows/movies and even more beloved authors have announced new books.
