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, “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!

Me & Earl & The Dying Girl

MeEarlDVDHave you guys read this book yet? Because it’s good. Don’t have time to read it? You’re in luck, because the movie just came out on DVD.

When the book first came out, I reviewed it for this very blog, so if you missed that, you can read it here.  Here’s a taste of my review: “This funny, brutally honest, and at times crazy story was as advertised: a laugh-out-loud look at what happens when you know you’re supposed to be Learning Life Lessons but you feel like you’re clearly not getting the point.”  Check out the book, the movie, or both at the library.

Read the book before you see the movie!

Last week I posted about Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, but that’s not the only summer movie based on a teen book! Check these out…

Based on: Paper Towns by John Green
Release date: July 24

One month before graduating from his Central Florida high school, Quentin “Q” Jacobsen basks in the predictable boringness of his life until the beautiful and exciting Margo Roth Spiegelman, Q’s neighbor and classmate, takes him on a midnight adventure and then mysteriously disappears. The movie stars Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff.

Based on: Big Game by Dan Smith
Release date: June 26

Every boy in Oskari’s remote mountain village must face a ritual hunt on his thirteenth birthday. The idea of spending a night alone in the forest makes him queasy, and the ceremonial bow he has to use is too big for him, but his true test comes when Air Force One is shot down near his campsite and he must help the President survive. Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Onni Tommila.
