For our latest list of Nonfiction New Releases, I incorporated more of my own taste to build the theme for the week. Get to know me by exploring some of these titles!
Which YA series finales succeeded—and which failed?
In the preface to Les Misérables, Victor Hugo wrote:
As long as there are ignorance and poverty on Earth, books such as this one may not be useless.
Those words have held true. The book was published in 1862— over a 150 years ago—and it was a breakout hit that still hasn’t lost its popularity nor its relevance.

“Lilly [Collins] was saying the other day that, you know, in one song lyric, in one line, she has a whole episode. You know, what happened to her? Where did she come from? Who did she fall in love with, how did he treat her? How did she end up a prostitute on the street? And we get to see all that. And so I think that anyone who loved the musical would really love this.”
A greater understanding of characters I already love? That’s got my ear, so I’ll tune in.Are you?
Game Of Thrones is coming to an end this year. As sad as that is going to be, there will still be adventures in Westeros once the main one is finished. HBO is putting together a pilot for a prequel series set within the GOT universe, and five new actors have officially joined the cast.
Marqius Rodriquez, John Simm, Richard McCabe, John Heffernan, and Dixie Egerickx have officially joined the cast. Rodriquez was last seen on Netflix’s Luke Cage. Simm was previously seen on Doctor Who. McCabe can be seen on Peaky Blinders. Heffernan’s TV credits include The Crown and Luther. Egerickx is the youngest of the new recruits and can be seen in Showtime’s Patrick Melrose.
HBO is keeping the plot of the prequel show under wraps, but it is said to take place thousands of years before the original series and will chronicles the Golden Age of Heroes all the way to Westeros’ darkest hour.
Previously announced cast members include Naomi Watts and Miranda Richardson. Production will begin early this summer.
