More Blockbuster Books

I know we're all recovering from The Mortal Instruments, but brace yourselves! more action-packed films are on the way.


Seventh Son, based on The Last Apprentice by Joseph Delaney
Y'all may have read this series when you were younger -- I read the first book and it is super creepy.  Will the movie deliver the chills, or is just a lot of explosions and dragons and Jeff Bridges swooping around?

Vampire Academy based on the series by Richelle Mead
Okay, I still have to read this one -- from the trailer I don't know what exactly is supposed to be going on here. Vampire prom? Why'd they kidnap that girl? Is there some sort of vampire society battle about to be unleashed here? And will those shoes still be in vogue by the time the movie comes out?

And of course you all know about Divergent! First look premiered at MTV's VMAs.

Many other popular series are in development or in production, including The Maze Runner, Fallen, Monument 14, The 5th Wave, and Uglies.

Are you excited for these movie adaptations?  Is there a series you want brought to the big screen?  Do you want more action adventure movies, or are you hankering for more realistic dramas like The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Spectacular Now?  And when is Hollywood going to knock it off with that dramatic foghorn effect already?
