Chris Colfer is a crazy-talented children’s author but his next book is definitely different from what his fans are used to. In fact, Colfer’s next book was partially inspired by Glee — and we can’t wait to read it.

The former Glee star has been a best-selling author since he wrote his first book in his children’s series, The Land of Stories, back in 2012. Colfer is now ready to branch out into the YA novel realm, but that doesn’t mean The Land of Stories doesn’t have one more book in the works as well.

Stranger Than Fiction, is geared towards young adults as it revolves around four kids after high school, who have a life-long obsession with one TV series.

“He shows up the next day ready to go on the road trip and he instantly is the world’s worst Mary Poppins. He gets them drunk, he gets them stoned, he’s using bad words.”

This upcoming tale is loosely inspired by the actor’s time on Glee, he admitted, but it’s definitely not an autobiography!

His Land of Stories series however, isn’t over just yet, and it continues to center on the fantasy world and the fairytales you grew up reading. Colfer revealed that he is currently thinking about what he wants to do next in the imaginative series and has begun planning the next installment’s title.

Oh, Chris you are our bookworm hero!
