YA Movie News

Lots of exciting movie news this week!

Tris goes Dauntless in the newest photo from Divergent thanks to Entertainment Weekly:

-Downton Abbey Seasn 4 will premier in the US on January 5th. 

-Vampire Academy has added more actors to the cast.

-Lionsgate is making a nice little niche with  YA novels turned movies and Wonder by R. J. Palacio is next on their list. Early Word reports that the film has been optioned. 

-Debut novel School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani has been optioned for a film.

It's the time of year when TV Networks announce their Fall lineup, which includes several book and comic based shows. Fox has passed on Delirium and it doesn't look like The Selection will be happening at The CW either.

Several of the shows have released trailers, so here's what's coming up based on books (or loosely based on books this Fall):

 And while Reign on The CW is not based on a book, it looks ripe for YA novel tie ins, don't you think? Plus, I might just watch it because it has Anne Shirley in it!! :)

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There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference.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.
