The Buzz: Little Snippets of Goodness

Hey! I'm back from my little family vacation/internet break. It was a lot of fun, and I'll post some big news on Friday about it :)

In the meantime, here are some little pieces of YA buzz awesomeness...

1. Divergent the movie is starting to film this year! It's already in the pre-production stages which means the screenplay by Evan Daugherty is out there somewhere....finished...oooh wouldn't you just love to get your hands on that?! If you knew nothing about the Divergent movie, it is scheduled to come out in 2015 (according to IMDB). It's pretty fun to check out who fans have selected to play the leads. Dakota Fanning is one of the Tris favorites...she could be good. I just wish I hadn't pictured Tris with short black hair the whole book...not sure how/why that happened, but the blond is throwing me off. I didn't realize my brain had it all wrong until I read Insurgent. My favorite fan pick is Steven R. McQueen to play the role of Four. Um. YES. Perfect, right?

2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower movie poster :) YAY. This one will be out on October 26th. Count me in.

3. Blood Red Road movie?? This is more of a question for you. Has anyone heard anything about the movie? On IMDB it says it is coming out in 2014, but I've found nothing on production plans or dates. I mean Ridley Scott's production company has the film rights! This is a big deal. I do know that Rebel Heart (the sequel...in book form) is coming out in October, and I'm super excited about that. I wish there was more out there on this series. It's one of my favorites.






Right now I'm reading the Matched series, but I sort of feeling like I'm missing out on what everyone's going crazy over at the moment.

In your opinion, what is the next big buzz in YA? What are you in love with right now?
