This is going to be a cop-out, fangirl post in which I basically just squeal a lot about all of the amazing YA things happening in the world. Come fangirl with me...
So, who has seen the City of Bones movie yet? This week is the busiest week of the year at work for me, so I haven't had the chance to go (sob), but it is Officially on the Agenda. It might just be my reward for turning in my second packet of graduate work (Clary + Jace = good incentive, no?). I'm still thinking about the excellent clip I got to see at the City of Bones party at BEA earlier this summer. It gave me chills. I imagine the entire movie will blow me away.
I'm also crazy excited about this teaser trailer from the Vampire Academy movie! I'm sort of hard to please when it comes to vampire books (my favorites are Sunshine by Robin McKinley and Richelle Mead's series), but I've always enjoyed Rose as a protagonist and I love the Bloodlines series. I was a little hesitant about the actress, but after seeing this trailer, I think she exudes Rose well. What do you think?
And of course, Divergent is definitely getting a lot of attention! That is 13 seconds of awesome right there!
And, lastly, HOW DID I MISS THAT HOW I LIVE NOW IS A MOVIE?
I read How I Live Now
by Meg Rosoff about five years ago, and it was so good. I think I
remember hearing rumors about a movie being made, but then nothing until
I saw this:
I think this trailer looks awesome, and I am very excited about the casting of Edmond. Sadly, I live in the middle of cornfields and lakes, where only movies like City of Bones or those raunchy R-rated comedies come to play in my theater, so I'll have to wait until this one is released on DVD. Or move. Whichever comes first.
this lovely recap on the Epic Reads blog.
And of course, my reviews:
The Girl of Fire and Thorns
The Crown of Embers
And finally, I leave you with an Anne of Green Gables stamp set. That's right. ANNE OF GREEN GABLES STAMP SET! You need this, you really do.
