YA Movie News

-The biggest news this week is the Veronica Mars movie is happening!! Oh my goodness I cannot contain my excitement about this project. I have been waiting for this movie and am so thrilled that it will finally be made. Yes of course I've backed the project, have you? And I'm not ashamed to admit I've watched the video on the Kickstarter page several times already (and will watch in many more!) I'm thinking another rewatch of all three seasons is in order. Who is with me? Maybe we need to do a rewatch and blog???


The big screen adaptation of Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone is getting closer. Stuart Beattie is writing the script.

Who else is excited about Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing? I can't wait! There's no trailer for Tiger Eyes, but it is featured in Judy Blume's interview from Rock Center.


  1. I know a lot of people are excited about Veronica Mars. I never watched this, but it must be awesome.

    Excited for Laini Taylor's movie news.

    1. You must watch it! It's a great show, especially season 1.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why.
