Another Twilight book? YES!

31 03 2010

Attention Twi-hards! You can stop re-reading all your worn copies of Twilight, Eclipse, etc. and take a break from watching Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner for one second (really, just one second). I have some news.

Stephenie Meyer is releasing a brand new novella based on a character introduced in Eclipse called The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. It will be released on June 5. Yay!

From Page to Screen: Little Brother

24 03 2010

I have decided to start a new series called: From Page to Screen. These posts will feature new movies (or future movies) that are based on books.

I’m pretty excited about this one. Little Brother by Cory Doctorow is quite the thriller. Here’s the summary from our Summer Reading List:

“After a terrorist attack, computer hacker Marcus is held by the Department of Homeland Security and tortured in a secret prison. Upon release, he vows to take down a system that threatens the rights of every citizen.”

You’ll definitely be into this one if you like computers, technology, and takin’ down the man!

This book has been optioned by Angryfilms – no further information or release date yet.





Last book in “Hunger Games” trilogy

16 02 2010

Something to think about for those of you who may still be snowbound… Scholastic has announced the last title in the Hunger Games trilogy. It will be called Mockingjay, and the cover appears to your left.

For those who have read the series, you are familiar with the image of the mockingjay that appears on all three covers. But this last is by far the brightest of the the three and the bird appears in flight. What could it mean? Find out when the book is released on August 24!

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

14 07 2009

formanSeventeen-year-old Mia had everything to live for — a loving family, a beloved boyfriend, and her brilliant cello playing (and, very possibly, an acceptance to Juilliard). But everything changes during a tragic car accident. Now Mia hovers near the hospital bed where her physical body lies in a coma, weighing her options. Should she stay?
