Nancy Drew Diaries Scoop
UPDATE: It appears that this series is not written in 3rd person as has been originally planned, but is in 1st person. Haven't seen it...yet!
Check out my Nancy Drew website page on the new Nancy Drew Diaries in the "Nancy Drew News" section and the page in the "Nancy Drew Books" section. They are similar right now, but the news page will get more updates as the series debuts as to any format info, promotional items (if any) and all those little things that turn up plus other changes as it progresses--plus I will highlight those here at the blog too.
The new series comes out in February with 2 titles - Curse of the Arctic Star and Strangers on a Train.
Then in May, we'll have Mystery of the Midnight Rider and Once Upon a Thriller in September.
The main changes in the series as compared the former Girl Detective series are making a return to some of the things from classic Nancy like:
Books being in 3rd person.
Covers are now illustrated by an artist
Stories are longer at now over 200 pages
Titles are more mysterious (curse/mystery/thriller...)
The girls use their brains/wits more to solve mysteries than rely on technology
These are some of the changes. I'll have more in an upcoming Blog when I'll be posting a review and doing some giveaways courtesy of Simon & Schuster.
