Book News, Weekly Recap, & Upcoming Releases! {1}

Did you know….

That there’s going to be a movie of THE BOOK THIEF????


Well, me either!!! At least, I had no idea until today, when I saw a post by the author, Markus Zusak! I’m so sad that I honestly had NO IDEA there was going to be a movie 😦 You can read everything about the upcoming movie and trailer here on the author’s tumblr!

Psst… the trailer has already been released! Go check it out here! The Book Thief is one of my all-time favorite books ever. It’s the type of book that strikes at your heart and makes you think and doesn’t leave your head for a long time, if ever. So go read it if you haven’t! You will not regret it, even as your heart is tearing apart at the end…

So I’ve just finished Shooting Scars by Karina Halle, and… I’m a bit sad. I didn’t think it was as good as the first book, which I loved. I’ll be posting my review of it soon, and for now, I’ve started Breaking Nova by Jessica Sorensen! I got an advanced copy from Netgalley, along with The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa, which is like, OH MY GOD!!!!! Julie Kagawa is one of my favorite authors ever, and to get an advanced copy of her book…. *faints* I love love love her Iron Fey series and The Immortal Rules, and getting an early copy of one of her books is like a dream come true! *hyperventilates*
