Red Queen Sequel: 'Glass Sword' COVER and BIG MOVIE NEWS!

Guys!! I just found out the greatest news! The cover for Glass Sword, the sequel to Red Queen, by Victoria Aveyard has officially been revealed by Yahoo Movies! The cover looks amazing, don't you think? :) AND, they also revealed some bigger news! Red Queen is ready for the screen :D The novel is already in development at Universal with Elizabeth Banks as a likely director (Source: >here< and >here<).

Glass Sword description //Spoilers if you haven't read Red Queen!!//
If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different. 
Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control. 
The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: She is not the only one of her kind.  
Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.
But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat. 
Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever? 
The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.

I will most definitely post more about this whenever there's more information :)
The book will be released February 9, 2016!
Are you excited?
