Yep ~ Psnarks FIVE challenge
In order of excitement... countdown style
5. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Whenever it happens, I think this will make the kind of YA movie I'd really love, even if it differs from the book. Strong on family relationships and big on choices with an emotional hit. Plus, it's a little bit sexy.
4. The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E Pearson
I so loved reading this book and all the concepts in it and the vibe in general. It's going to be a fab movie, I'm thinking... (also, the sequel to The Adoration of Jenna Fox is coming out in 2011...)
Here's the official book trailer
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The book is HUGE, I'm thinking the movie will be pretty HUGER ;)
This fan-made book trailer is actually pretty spectacular and completely convincing, you know, if you haven't read the book already... do yourself a favour and watch it.
2. Beatle Meets Destiny by Gabrielle Williams
How much do I LOVE this book? I have hopes for a rocking cult-classic vibe movie. CANNOT WAIT. It's funky and just a bit sexy and extremely funny in the oh-so-quirky-feel-good-way.
Here's a fan made book trailer :)
1. The Dead of the Night by John Marsden
(#2 in the Tomorrow Series)
WHY, YES, I THOUGHT THE FIRST MOVIE THAT CAME OUT THIS YEAR COMPLETELY ROCKED.
So thrilled that they have announced a second and a third movie. And there's talk of a spin-off TV series...
I re-read the entire Tomorrow Series this year and it's about as nostalgic as I'll ever get about any characters, ever. So looking forward to seeing them again in Hell.
In case you missed it the first time around ~ here's the official trailer for Tomorrow When the War Began, which is now out on dvd in Australia. (Hits the big screen in the UK in April).
So there's mine ~ three Aussie movies and two US...
WAIT! There's more!
TWO movies I am most appropriately psyched about:
Obviously, I'm hanging out for The Hunger Games. Just thought, like, everyone would be choosing that and I like to have my own vibe...
And, why, yes, Melina Marchetta is working on a script for On The Jellicoe Road. That's all I know...
What YA movie deal has you doing the squee thing?
