Movies In Development!

We all know that TONS of teen books get optioned for movie development and never end up being made. But! Two movies have made it past the casting stage and are well on their way to the big screen! Be sure to read and fall in love with the books now so you can properly judge the movies when they come out. 😆

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
YA FIC THOMAS
After witnessing her friend’s death at the hands of a police officer, Starr Carter’s life is complicated when the police and a local drug lord try to intimidate her in an effort to learn what happened the night Kahlil died. Amandla Stenberg will play Starr in the movie.
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
YA FIC ALBERTALLI
Sixteen-year-old, not-so-openly-gay Simon Spier is blackmailed into playing wingman for his classmate or else his sexual identity–and that of his pen pal–will be revealed. Nick Robinson will play Simon in the movie.

The Raven Cycle is coming to TV!

I’m super excited to say that Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle is coming to TV!

As seen on Hypable.com, “Best-selling author Maggie Stiefvater has confirmed that her series The Raven Cycle will be a television show, with Catherine Hardwicke attached to direct and produce.”

If you haven’t read the series, it was just optioned, so you have plenty of time. Check out my review of the first book, The Raven Boys.

Dumplin’s Headed to Hollywood

Last week it was announced that Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy is headed to the big screen. In the book, sixteen-year-old Willowdean wants to prove to everyone in her small Texas town that she is more than just a fat girl, so, while grappling with her feelings for a co-worker who is clearly attracted to her, Will and some other misfits prepare to compete in the beauty pageant her mother runs. Jennifer Aniston just signed on to play Dumplin’s mother in the movie. Check out Dumplin’ today at the library!
