Fangirl Five is hosted by Evil Eva at Nancy Drew is My Homegirl.
Here’s what I’m stoked about this week:
1. This piece of awesome sent to me by Dixie @ Gone Pecan
I can’t help it. I love this picture. I mean it’s Peeta and Cinna. And more important, it’s Lenny.
2. The CW Pilot for Selection- I have no clue when this show will be on. I haven’t even read the book yet (I can’t wait to), but I am already crazypants in love with the casting. Ethan Peck (as in Gregory Peck, as in Atticus Finch and as in hey, he was totally adorbs in that short-lived TV version of 10 Things I Hate About You) is the prince. I like this because in my opinion, princes should always be dark-haired and handsome. It’s a rule I have. But then, holy smokes, William Moseley (as in Peter the Magnificent from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe) is another love interest. And yeah, the girl, Aimee Teegarden is totally adorable too. Even better, it’s being written by the people who give us the awesome known as The Vampire Diaries.
3. The Positive Side Effects of The Hunger Games movie- We all know that the movie was great and that we’re super crazed to see what they do with Catching Fire (my favorite in the series). It’s been interesting this week to read the tons and tons of articles buzzing about new YA book to film adaptations. It’s like all the horrors of Twilight (or at least some of them) are being swept away because The Hunger Games is reminding people that great books can cross genre lines and reach fans of all ages and even better, when they’re turned into films and done well (cough Catherine Hardwicke, cough cough) they can be a phenomenon deserving of the all the hype and the fanfare. This is good for us fellow YA lovers! In fact, it’s awesome.
4. The trailer for Insurgent is out! Eeeeee! And USA Today has it along with a great interview with Veronica Roth. Check it.
That’s all for now. My kiddos are on Spring Break and we are on the move (but I’m still squeezing in some good reads).
Have a great weekend!
