YA Movie News

-School Library Journal has a great roundup of YA novels that are hitting the big screen.

-Rob Thomas (of Veronica Mars fame) is working on a modern day interpretation of Les Miserables for the small screen. The script has been ordered from Fox, so we'll see if it takes off! Thanks to Cynopsis for the news.

-The TV version of Jim Benton's Dear Dumb Diary series debuts as a musical film on Saturday September 7 at 8pm (ET) on the Hallmark Channel. Thanks to Cynopsis for the news.

And just for fun, the season four trailer for Downton Abbey was release. We have to wait until January to watch it in the US though.


  1. I just found your site and I LOVE that you love Downton Abbey. (I can't wait to get home tonight and watch the S4 trailer!!!!) The reading list of books to fill the void until January is perfect! (of course I have about 20 books currently sitting on my bedside table begging to be read, but oh well. There's no such thing as too many books!)

    Also, I love that you have information about Middle Grade books. I just started working in a middle school and it's a big shift from high school. I want to challenge my 8th graders and have books that deal with issues they encounter, but those aren't always appropriate for my 6th graders. I will be using your reviews to do some research and order some more new fiction for my library!


    1. Amber, I clicked Sarah's link to this page via Twitter and cannot believe you left a comment the same morning! Worlds collide on this blog!

    2. Thanks Amber! I'm addicted to Downton Abbey!

      And I love posting about MG! I'm glad my blog is a help! :)

  2. Thanks for the TV and movie news. Can't wait for a new season of Downton Abbey.


I love hearing from other readers! Share your thoughts and chime in!
