Book Related News:
- Sony closed their casting call for Jace Wayland (The Mortal Instruments). Does this mean they have their Jace? If so - I MUST KNOW WHO IT IS!!
- Jennifer Lawrence of Winter's Bone fame has been cast as Katniss for the upcoming movie adaptation of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. A lot of people are complaining about her blonde hair and pale skin, but come on people - they can dye her hair! And it's not that hard to get a tan, especially with the movie magic they can do! As long as Miss Lawrence can act, and act extremely well, there's no reason to fret over her looks.
- The move rights for Divergent, a debut YA novel by Veronica Roth, have been sold to Summit! *CHEER* *HYPERVENTILATE* *FAINTS* Can you tell I'm excited?
- Penguin are discussing the changes to the covers of Nightshade and Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer. Let's hope they're reconsidering scrapping the stunning green cover after hearing lots of feedback from fans of the novel!
- Maria V Snyder reported that sales for Inside Out, and consequently Outside In, are low and if they stay low it is unlikely that we'll get a third book in the series. Come on, people, what are you waiting for? Go buy the books!



    Anyway, Great book haul this week. I'm super jealous of the books you got this week. Have fun reading and I want your accent.

  2. Wow great books! I'm also jealous of your books! I haven't read Desires of the Dead but heard it was great :) Happy Reading!

  3. I'm going to comment on your British accent too. I loved Snyder's Poison Study series but haven't read Inside Out. If you call it brilliant again, I'll go out and buy it! Awesome mailbox this week!

    AJ - Haha! My accent often gets a lot of attention -.- Oh, oh, oh, it's INCREDIBLE! Go and buy it :D

  5. I have both Inside Out and Outside In. I've seen it around the blogs a lot so I don't understand why it's not doing so well. That is a shame :(
