So we’re assuming most of our readers have seen The Hunger Games movie at this point. What did you think? Were you happy with how the filmmakers adapted the story? Were you surprised by any changes that were made? I thought the movie was very entertaining overall and about what I expected. I loved Amanda Stenberg as Rue and Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman in particular, as well as the little pings of the silver parachutes floating down. I wore my mockingjay pin to the theater, of course! Are there other 2012 bookish films that you’re dying to see? The Hobbit, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, or maybe Breaking Dawn Part Two? We couldn’t stop laughing when we saw the trailer and Robert Pattinson says to Kristen Stewart, “We’re the same temperature now.” Hee hee! The bookish film I’m dying to see above all others this year is Snow White… Read more »

I recently came across a beautiful cover with an intriguing synopsis. Have you seen Jessica Therrien’s new book Oppression? It’s the first book in her Children of the God series. Synopsis: Elyse knows what it means to keep a secret. She’s been keeping secrets her whole life. Two, actually. First, that she ages five times slower than the average person, so that while she looks eighteen years old, she’s closer to eighty. Second, that her blood has a mysterious power to heal. For Elyse, these things don’t make her special. They make life dangerous. After the death of her parents, she’s been careful to keep her secret as closely guarded as possible. Now, only one other person in the world knows about her age and ability. Or so she thinks. Elyse is not the only one keeping secrets. There are others like her all over the world, descendants of the… Read more »
Sci Fi Contest Winners! We got tons of entries for our latest contest, and I’m pleased to announce that Kristina D. is the lucky winner of the YA Science Fiction ARC Bundle. Congratulations, Kristina–be sure to let us know what you think of your books! As for the runner-up prize of Julie Cross’ Tempest, the winner is Kalen O’Donnell for his choice of Roger Zelazny’s Lord of Light. He says, “its about in the future, humanity colonizes a distant planet, and the crew of the ship that brought them hoarded the technology and set themselves up as gods, modeled after the Hindu pantheon, and use this technology to reincarnate over and over again. It’s kinda complicated at times, but so brilliant.” Now how could I possibly resist that? It sounds like an awesome book. Sold, Kalen…sold. Stay tuned for an awesome giveaway next month, too. It’s our one-year blogoversary, so… Read more »
