Coming Soon

I'm giddy.

There has been such amazing news in the twitosphere (is that a term yet? If not, I call it) about oh-so-exciting film rights deals for fabulous YA authors.

Even though the making of said movies lies well in the future, I still am proud to present my own series of previews for movies I will be waiting in line to see on their some-day-hopefully-not-too-far-away release dates.

Wicked Lovely

Melissa Marr's fey on the silver screen. I get chills just imagining the possibilities.

The Mortal InstrumentsCassandra Clare's series kept me up all night turning pages. And the thought of Jace in the flesh? Swoon.


Speaking of chills. Go werewolves! Maggie Stiefvater's lyrical prose and bittersweet tales of love will make for tear-jerking and spine-tingling goodness.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth

I am already terrified...but in a really, really good way.

The Duff
(so hot off the presses there isn't even a cover yet!)

Yay for fellow Tenner Kody Keplinger. The film talk compares her story to Juno (which I loved), and hello McG! Woo-hoo Kody! I can't wait for this film!

Beautiful Creatures
Finally, but hopefully only the continuation of more good news to come for the page to screen of YA, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's southern gothic is the buzz around town. This movie is certain to make waves and I think it will be wonderful.

Three cheers for YA domination of Hollywood!!! And a Happy December to you all!


  1. Wow! That's extraordinary. I hope Hollywood does them justice.

  2. PS. There's something for you and your scrappiness on my blog.

  3. Whoa! I had no idea there were so many YA books coming out as movies - that's awesome! :)

  4. I loved THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH, but I don't think I could sit through the visuals. The mini picture in my mind is much more tame.

  5. My agent sent me a Beautiful Creatures ARC in October. They're all going to be great, but that's the one I'm dieing to see.

  6. That's funny, I was just at the bookstore with my soon to be bride and I was showing her that book covers can make or break a sale. I picked up "Shiver" and explained that the unique design makes me want to read the synopsis, which would influence my decision to buy. I guess I'll have to actually get it now. (Seeing your recommendation)
