YA Movie News
-The biggest movie news this week is that the Entertainment Weekly issue out this weekend features Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss on the cover. I think she looks great and exactly like I pictured Katniss! What do you think?
I also love this interview with Jennifer about the movies-I think she's going to do a fantastic job!
-Shelf Awareness reports that R.L. Stine's latest book, It's the First Day of School...Forever has been optioned as a movie. Goosebumps books and DVDs check out constantly at my library, so I'd love to have more to add to the collection!!
