This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Hardcover, 672 pages, Margaret K. McElderry Books
Genres: YA, Paranormal
The New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling collection of short stories chronicling the adventures of Simon Lewis as he trains to become a Shadowhunter is now available in print for the first time with ten brand-new comic illustrations!
Simon Lewis has been a human and a vampire, and now he is becoming a Shadowhunter. The events of City of Heavenly Fire left him stripped of his memories, and Simon isn’t sure who he is anymore. So when the Shadowhunter Academy reopens, Simon throws himself into this new world of demon-hunting, determined to find himself again. Whomever this new Simon might be.
But the Academy is a Shadowhunter institution, which means it has some problems. Like the fact that non-Shadowhunter students have to live in the basement. At least Simon’s trained in weaponry—even if it’s only from hours of playing D&D.
Join Simon on his journey to become a Shadowhunter, and learn about the Academy’s illustrious history along the way, through guest lecturers such as Jace Herondale, Tessa Gray, and Magnus Bane. Written by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, and Robin Wasserman, these moving and hilarious short stories are perfect for the fan who just can’t get enough of the Shadowhunters.
I didn’t buy the novella ebook versions of these stories, simply because I knew a bind-up of all of them was coming out. Also, the only reason I’m excited for this bind-up is because of MALEC and what I’ve heard happens to them. I’m not a fan of Simon, so his viewpoints, along with the Shadowhunter history that’s going to play a part in this book, doesn’t really interest me.
What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?
