Book Versus Movie On YAtopia

Hey all!

On Saturday, I posted on the YAtopia blog about film adaptations of books. Which one to you think is better: the book of the movie? Hop on over and leave your two cents.

One of the examples I used was Ender’s Game. Well, I saw it over the weekend and LOVED it! Are you guys gonna check it out?

How about Catching Fire and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug? They’re definitely on my list.

Switching gears a bit…

If you take a look on the right side of my blog, I’ve added ZODIAC COLLECTOR to my list of works. Click on the picture (on the side bar) and it’ll take you to the Goodreads page. Zodiac is due for publication in May 2014!

Today is the day. The day that The Hunger Games debuts in theaters.

There’s been a LOT of marketing to get everybody salivating.

I’m conflicted.

I LOVED the book. LOVED. The. Book.

BUT, I found the premise so disturbing (WHO sends their kids to fight to the death???), I have yet to read the rest of the trilogy. They’ve been sitting on my bookshelf since last summer.

I’m not ready to read on yet.

I’m not sure I’m ready to see the movie.

I have a feeling it’ll be a good one, though.

So, I should just bite the bullet and go see it, right?

BTW, have your learned your Hunger Games name?
