Book Traveling Thursdays: Book to Movie (2016)

btt

Hello, welcome back to another Book Traveling 168709Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.

This week’s theme is “Everyone loves movies… Choose a movie that is going to be adapted in 2016“. For the first since I started to do the Book Traveling Thursday thread, I’ll use a book that I haven’t read yet, but that I plan to and that I already own. So I’m going with A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, which will be released later this year.


Original COver:

I absolutely love this cover, especially because it’s the illustrated edition and the one that I proudly own.

COVER FROM MY COUNTRY (PORTUGAL) & COVER FROM THE COUNTRY I LIVE IN (SPAIN):

                                          

Ohhh, I’m so happy that we already have this book translated to portuguese 😀 and that they kept the original cover!!! The spanish cover is slightly different but I like it a lot, though it doesn’t invoke the “scary” feelings that the original does.

Favorite COVER(s):

                                       

As I said, I absolutely love the original cover, it’s perfect! But I also love UK’s first non-illustrated edition… the cover is so gorgeous, it’s mouth-watering! Yeah, it’s a bit on the lighter side of scary, but it’s so brilliant.

LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):

            

In general, I really like all of the covers for this book, but these are the ones I like less… The italian I’m not sure why I don’t like it, I think it has to do with the drawing and the font. The next two covers are for germany, and the first one’s problem is that “WHY?”, while the last one is almost pretty, it just isn’t my fave.

A Court Of Thorns And Roses Optioned for Film

77493_originalWait, what?! OH YEAH!!!

Deadline just broke the news that Tempo Productions has optioned the Sarah J. Maas novel, A Court Of Thorns And Roses for film, and I’m so so happy!

ACOTAR would be a great movie, who’s with me? Are we fancasting the hot hot Fae yet? 😀


EXCLUSIVE– In a competitive situation, Jo Bamford’s and Piers Tempest’s Tempo Productions have optioned Sarah J Maas’s YA fantasy book A Court of Thorns and Roses. Maas’s book follows 19-year-old huntress Feyre, who kills a wolf in the woods, only for a beast-like creature to arrive and demand retribution for it.

Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin, one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world. As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it or doom Tamlin and his world forever.

Maas is repped by CAA and Tamar Rydzinski at the Laura Dail Literary Agency. Charles Moore at Wiggin LLC acts for Tempo.

Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda is coming to the big screen

*OMG OMG OMG I’M TOTALLY FREAKING OUT HERE*

Deadline announced a bit ago that FOX 2000 has acquired the rights to the Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda novel, by Becky Albertalli. People, Simon is going to become a movie!!! Who’s excited about this? (Besides me, obviously!)

I love this book so much, it’s one of my favorites of this year, and I think it could be an amazing movie, and I can’t wait to see Simon and Blue on the big screen 😀 .


“EXCLUSIVE: Fox 2000 has acquired a package for an adaptation of a popular YA novel that’s described as John Hughes-style coming-of-age, coming-out story. The studio bought Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda, a debut novel by Becky Albertelli that will be produced by Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen and Isaac Klausner (The Fault In Our Stars) of Temple Hill, and Pouya Shahbazian (Divergent) of New Leaf. The script will be written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger, who planned to pitch studios all over town, only to see Elizabeth Gabler’s division quickly take it off the table, preemptively. 

The novel focuses on Simon Spier, a 16-year-old not-so-openly gay student. When an email written by Simon falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being made public. Change-averse Simon is forced to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out — in a way that won’t alienate his friends, compromise himself or ruin a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he hasn’t even met yet.

Fox 2000’s Erin Simonoff and Molly Saffron moved quickly to acquire the book, and New Leaf’s Chris McEwen will be associate producer. HarperCollins published the novel this year and it is set to roll out in 19 countries.
