Read the Book? See the Movie? Do Both?

Did you hear? City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare, was made into a movie? It's coming out this August!! I loved that book!

Did you hear that Divergent is also being turned into a movie? It's not until March 2014, and I CAN'T WAIT!!

We have both those books at the library. We also have other films that started out as books. Mean Girls (2004) is based on the somewhat dry, non-fiction book Queen Bees & Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman. She's the Man (2006) is a retelling of William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, while Clueless (1995) turns Emma, by Jane Austen, into a modern-day highschool comedy.

Other exciting movies that originated as books include: The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins), X-Men (Marvel Comics), I Am Number Four (Pittacus Lore), Gossip Girl (Cecily von Ziegesar), The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants (Ann Brashares), Twilight (Stephenie Meyer), and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (John Boyne). Happy reading and watching!
