Find out what happened to FALLEN’s US release opportunities. Book fans got pretty hyped for the release of Fallen, based on the angelic YA saga by Lauren Kate. We got a casting announcement, then saw photos and even a trailer, but Fallen never got released in the US, even in home video format. So what happened? Just Jared Jr has done a little sleuthing and discovered what went wrong with the Fallen movie release in the US. Back in September 2016, the production was working with troubled film company Relativity Media on a distribution deal in the United States, complete with…

STRANGER THAN FANFICTION is a story about friendship that exceeds expectations. Enter to win it for yourself! Writing this minutes after finishing the book, I can definitely say Stranger Than Fanfiction exceeded my expectations. After reading the initial chapters, I made assumptions about the plot and characters of the book only to be completely shocked and impressed with how each turned out. The story follows a group of friends, Sam, Mo, Topher and Joey, fresh out of high school and going on summer cross-country road trip. They jokingly invite one of their idols, actor Cash Carter along for the ride, only to have him…

Writer/actor/director Andrew McCarthy is coming out with his first fiction novel titled JUST FLY AWAY about a 15-year-old who runs away to live with her grandfather. Some people may recognize the name of Andrew McCarthy as that of one of the 80’s heartthrobs of the “Brat Pack” (which included fellow young and hot actors Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, and Demi Moore to name a few.) But he’s since grown away from that label, all the while keeping a steady pace in Hollywood as director in shows like Netflix’s Orange is the New Black and NBC’s The Blacklist. McCarthy had already written The…

The cover for Peter Bognanni’s second YA novel, THINGS I’M SEEING WITHOUT YOU, has been released and it’s beautiful. Peter Bognanni’s Things I’m Seeing Without You is bent on giving you all the heartbreaking moments you’ll ever want as it deals with the loss of a girl’s boyfriend in one of the most painful ways. But the cover of the book also hints at something hopeful and inspiring with a plight of birds flying together in an almost lyrical manner. Seventeen-year-old Tess Fowler has just dropped out of high school. She can barely function after learning of Jonah’s death. Jonah, the…

Watch Michelle Hodkin read excerpts from the Mara Dyer spinoff, The Shaw Confessions, which is told from the point of view of Noah Shaw. We got to interview Michelle Hodkin at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con and she spoke about her upcoming new book series, The Shaw Confessions. As you might’ve guessed, this is actually kind of a spinoff to her Mara Dyer trilogy. This time Noah Shaw tells the story as it continues from the previous trilogy. “This trilogy is completely different from the first trilogy. It’s very different, but it’s going to continue the stories of those characters.…

EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING author Nicola Yoon talks about being on set of the film adaptation and the new movie tie-in cover. If you haven’t seen the first trailer for Everything, Everything, then you really should go check it out now. It’s amazing to see Nick Robinson (Olly) and Amandla Stenberg (Maddy) portray the main characters. This latest photo of them, which will be the movie tie-in cover for the book it was adapted from, seems to show how flawless their chemistry was with each other. As a side note, there’s a note on the bottom corner stating that this version of the book…

MIRROR, MIRROR follows three teens down a dark path after one of their friends dies unexpectedly. Actress/model Cara Delevingne gained a lot of attention while starring in the adaptation of a Young Adult favorite– Paper Towns, based on the book by John Green.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST gets a dark, delightful twist in HUNTED. In case you’ve been living under a rock, Beauty and the Beast is kind of a big deal this week. But it’s not just Disney making a stir with its live-action musical. Part of the hype belongs to Meagan Spooner, co-author of the Starbound series, and her clever, original take on the classic tale. Hunted doesn’t heedlessly take from either the popularized Disney story nor the founding French fairy tale. It takes out the kiddie elements and adds in extra depth for a darker, more riveting story sans dancing…
