Friday Favorites #7: Disney-Hyperion

Friday Favorites is a weekly meme hosted here, that spotlights a favorite author, book, series, publisher, cover, blog, etc. Basically whatever bookish thing that you love, recommend, and want to tell others about. Just pick one and link up to my post each Friday to share. You can use the graphic I used above, the other one here, or your own.

I've been noticing quite a few of the books I've been talking about, downloading from NetGalley, and wanting to read are published by Disney-Hyperion. It seems the books I have read of theirs I have loved. I didn't realize that this was the case until a post I wrote last week.

Here is a collage of some of the books they have/will be publishing:


Several of these I haven't read yet, but am planning on doing so. I love Ally Carter, Cinda Williams Chima, Eoin Colfer, and Alexandra Bracken's books! I also found a shelf on Goodreads if you're interested in taking a look, although it's not a complete list.


About the Publisher
(from Wikepedia)

Hyperion Books is a general-interest book publishing part of the Disney-ABC Television Group, a division of The Walt Disney Company, established in 1991. Hyperion publishes general-interest fiction and non-fiction books for adults under the following imprints: ABC Daytime Press, ESPN Books, Hyperion Audio, Hyperion eBooks, Hyperion East, Miramax Books, and Voice. The company is named after Hyperion Avenue, the location of Walt Disney Studios prior to 1939. The Disney Book Group publishes children's books under the Disney-Hyperion publishing arm.

Hyperion is the home of numerous bestselling novels, including Mitch Albom’s The Five People You Meet in Heaven and For One More Day; Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl, Candace Bushnell’s Trading Up and Lipstick Jungle; Laura Moriarty’s The Rest of Her Life; Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson & The Olympians; The Kane Chronicles and Ridley Pearson's The Kingdom Keepers. The company's bestselling memoirs include J. R. Moehringer’s The Tender Bar; Duane “Dog” Chapman’s You Can Run But You Can't Hide, and Bob Newhart’s I Shouldn’t Even Be Doing This. They are also home to influential business books like Chris Anderson’s The Long Tail; self-help books like Dr. Phil McGraw’s Relationship Rescue and the Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff library; and celebrity chefs like Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson and Dave Lieberman.

It is also the publisher of Percy Jackson & the Olympians, a best selling children/teens' book by Rick Riordan that features Greek gods, monsters and other fantasy elements. Coincidentally, Hyperion is a titan and actually appears in the books. Hyperion published The Red Pyramid, also by Rick Riordan, which focuses on the two Kane siblings as they find out who they really are.

Disney-Hyperion is the publisher of Miles to Go, the autobiography of Miley Cyrus. They also published the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz and the Billi SanGreal series by Sarwat Chadda, along with the children's book "Light Up the Night" by Jean Reidy. They are also the publisher of author Ally Carter's series The Gallagher Girls and Heist Society. Disney Hyperion is the replacement for Disney Editions and Miramax Books and it publishes the young adult books under Disney Hyperion and the more mature books under Hyperion unlike Disney Press which publishes the books meant for children.
