Have you heard? The popular urban fantasy/dark fairy series Wicked Lovely is going to be made into a movie! Who would you cast as the main characters? Keep tabs on this Melissa Marr fan site for the latest details. And in the meantime, enjoy the book trailer for the final book in the series, Darkest Mercy. These covers have got to be some of the most gorgeous I’ve ever seen!
Stumbled across this really cool fan-made book trailer for Unwind, by Neal Shusterman (which more than one person has told me to read ASAP!). If you’ve read the book, what do you think? Does this trailer do it justice?
So, are you going to see Water for Elephants and check out Robert Pattinson in a non-wizard, non-vampire role? Can he manage it?! Don’t forget you can check out the book the movie was based on, or just check out a book along the lines of I Love Robert Pattinson (no, seriously).
Call me a sap, but even though I never cared for prom, I totally want to see this!! I love Aimee Teegarden in Friday Night Lights, and, well, I’m kind of a sucker for this kind of movie (insert embarrassing and outdated love for High School Musical here). Plus, the novel adaptation is already out!
You can be all about the dress and the date, or all about the staying-home-and-leaving-the-drama-to-others, and there will still be a book for you. Prom Nights From Hell? Got it. (This one also includes something rare: a non-Twilight story from Stephenie Meyer.) A modern retelling of Pride & Prejudice called (wait for it)………..Prom & Prejudice? Got that too.
What’s your take — will you see the movie, read the book, or neither?
Sad news for today’s post: beloved fantasy author Diana Wynne Jones died over the weekend. Her books for kids and teens have a solid following that was, in many ways, like a well-kept secret — at least until the spotlight (or was it the librarians?) found her as a great Harry Potter readalike. Boarding schools in England? Wizards? Family drama? Humor and fantasy? Check, check, check, and check.
If you’ve haven’t yet tried this author, you owe it to yourself! Check out all we’ve got by Diana Wynne Jones.
Check out this awesome book trailer for the new book Across the Universe, by Beth Revis. I can’t wait to read it!
And of course, the question still remains…who should play Peeta and Gale?
Breaking news! Today marks the first day that WPL has offered movies on Blu-ray! Here’s what we’ve got so far. (You can also search “blu-ray” in the library catalog.)
For those who use Blu-ray…how do you like it? Better picture/sound, etc.? Do you think it is worth a special player, since they won’t play in a regular DVD player?
This Saturday is our Anti-Valentine’s Day Party, but we know there are many sides to that thing called love. For a dose of the sweeping, dare-you-not-to-bawl-into-your-popcorn romance, stop by tomorrow afternoon for our 3:30 showing of “The Notebook.”
Besides, nothing makes my heart thump more than the words “FREE POPCORN.”
Have you seen this adorable video? It’s made by local librarians from SaveOhioLibraries.com. Anyone who’s looking for a job, and/or wondering what the public library can do for them, should check it out! (And so should anyone who loves kittens. I mean, how can you resist kittens?!)
Just an early reminder that Teen Movie Friday on January 7 @ 3:30 pm will feature Inception. If you’ve seen it, you know you need to see it again. (I’m STILL confused.) If you haven’t…you’re in for a mindbending afternoon!
With today’s Teens Talk Books discussion of Graceling all wrapped up, make sure you plan to be at the library next Friday, December 17 @ 4 pm for our annual holiday showing of “Elf.” If you aren’t here, I’ll assume you’re a cotton-headed ninny-muggins!
Get in the spooky spirit with today’s big-screen showing of CLUE, starring Tim Curry and a madcap cast of characters from the board game who must solve a murder mystery in a creepy mansion. 98 minutes; rated PG. This movie has some hilarious quotes!
”Why are you screaming?” “Because I’m frightened!” “Of what?” “SCREAMING!”
