YA Movie News

-Not only did we get the title of the highly anticipated third book in the Divergent trilogy this week (the book will be called Allegiant) casting news was released about who will be playing Tris's parents: Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn. This cast is coming together very nicely, don't you think? You can keep up with all the casting news on the Facebook page. The movie has just started filming in Chicago.

-Delirium finished filming and you can see a great Instagram photo roundup from the cast thanks to The Examiner.

The biggest news this week was the release of the first trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It looks like they script has added more back story, but I'm okay with it-it looks like it's adding to the story and not changing anything. I think it looks great!


  1. It looks like they added more motivation for President Snow. I actually still haven't seen the first movie even though I got it for Christmas. I need to fix that soon.

    1. Yes you do! And yes, it looks as though they have expanded his character and given him more motivation and explanation which I like.

  2. I can't wait for the Divergent movie. Any news regarding that puts a smile on my face.
    The newly released video for Catching Fire also has me excited. I love how it goes more in-depth into President Snow and his motivation as well as explains the premiss for this round of Hunger Games.

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There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference.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. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
