Green Witch by Alice Hoffman

In a post apocalyptic world torn apart by war and fighting, Green is alone. The Horde, technology fearing tyrants, have killed her family and her love Diamond is missing. The people who are left begin to turn to her to record the stories of what has been lost, leading Green to realize that she has her own story to finish.

Setting out, she starts searching for answers from women who have been branded as witches. What has become of Diamond? Will she ever find him again? And if she does find him, will she still love him the same?

In this stand alone sequel to Green Angel, Hoffman has created a haunting story about the search for truth, hope and love.

Hunger Games Movie Speculation…

With the popularity of Suzanne Collin’s dystopian future Hunger Games Trilogy it was only a matter of time before it was made into a movie (because, really…what isn’t made into a movie these days?!?). Collins has been supervising the adaptation of her book into a movie script, but the big question on minds is…who will play Katniss Everdeen?

Rumors suggest that it could be Hailee Steinfeld, the 14 year old who was recently nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in the western True Grit. Maybe it will be Jennifer Lawrence, who was also recently nominated for an Oscar and will be starring in the upcoming X-Men: First Class movie. Or maybe, it will be Abigal Breslin (Zombieland, My Sister’s Keeper).

Check out the news story at ComingSoon.net

Who do YOU think should play Katniss???

Books to Movies-Beastly

Beastly starring Vanessa Hudgens, Neil Patrick Harris, Mary Kate Olsen and Alex Pettyfer comes out today! Based on the book of the same name by Alix Flinn, Beastly is an updated version of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast. Told from the point of view of the Beast, Flinn’s book tells the tale of Kyle Kingsbury, a popular but cruel high school student. After humiliating a girl at a school dance, a she reveals to him that she is a witch. She puts a curse on him, causing him to be as ugly on the outside as he is on the inside. She give him two years to figure out how to break the curse…after that, he will remain a beast forever.

While the plot is familiar, generally following the classic fairy tale, Flinn’s update takes place in modern day New York. From the trailer, it looks like details from the book were tweaked a little, but you be the judge!
