The recently published Firelight by Sophie Jordan has been optioned for film by Mandalay Entertainment.

Advance tickets for The Hunger Games movie went on sale on Wednesday, February 22 and has already sold out hundreds of show times, and the movie doesn't release for another month.  Fans who buy their advance tickets on Fandango will also get a free iTunes song download  - ends 4/13/12

 Lily Collins (Abduction; Mirror, Mirror) considers the title role in Rosaline, a film based on the debut novel When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle.

J.K. Rowling is plotting her next novel, this time for adults, and all we really know about her latest project is that it "will be very different to the Harry Potter series", but how different?  I guess we'll find out later this year when further details are expected to emerge.

Jane Austen game is set to launch on Facebook.

You might remember news of The Selection by Kiera Cass, a YA novel that hasn't even been published yet, getting optioned for a TV series by The CW. Now, The Selection has a leading lady - Aimee Teegarden (Friday Night Lights).

Couple needs a new home for their 30,000-volume book collection.

UCB Comedy pokes fun at Cormac McCarthy novels in their video 'Pictionary: The Cormac McCarthy Edition.'

Stephen Colbert to publish a children's book - I Am a Pole (And So Can You!) to be published on May 8.

The town of Forks, Washington is planning a big birthday party for Bella Swan (Twilight). According to Reelz, the town is hoping to buy a collection of Twilight props, to be on display for the three-day Stephenie Meyer's Day event which will feature a re-enactment of Bella and Edward's wedding. They also hope to make the display permanent by opening a museum.


  1. Not surprised about the Hunger Games at all. I doubt I'll go see it opening weekend as the theater will be a mad house. But I'll definitely be seeing it soon after.

  2. I'll be seeing The Hunger Games for sure but will probably wait a week or two after its released...even though the wait will be tough.

    I've seen some mixed reviews on The Selection and after the fiasco with the author my excitement for it has dwindled down.

    30,000 books...that's crazy!

  3. I can't wait to see what Firelight is like.

    I can't wait to see Lily act.

    A Jane Austen game? No way! I must try this.

    I would SO go to a Twilight museum.
