Sometimes I come across various links throughout the week and I figured I would share some of them, in case anyone else was interested!!
The movie version of YA novel If I Stay by Gayle Forman was given a 2014 release date. It will be released on August 22 and the main role is played by Chloe Grace Moretz. I'm excited that the movie is finally coming out, as If I Stay was a book that I really loved. I still need to check out Where She Went, which I should definitely do before August!
J.K. Rowling is not finished with Harry Potter just yet...except this time he'll be on the stage! Now, before you get too excited, this play will be about Harry's years living with the Dursley's before he found out he was a wizard and taken to Hogwarts.
From the article: In a statement released Friday, the author said the production will "explore the previously untold story of Harry's early years as an orphan and outcast," living in the muggle world.
Though she will not be writing the script, Rowling will work with veteran producers
I love anything and everything Harry Potter so I'm pretty excited about this. I just hope the play comes near enough so I can see it! I believe it will start out in the U.K.
Ned Vizzini, author of It's Kind of a Funny Story, committed suicide this past December. I just learned about this recently and it was really sad to hear. I read It's Kind of a Funny Story, as well as another book by Ned, when I was younger and really enjoyed them. He will certainly be missed by many.
And that's it! Not too much, but these were all bits of information I had wanted to pass along.
