I would save this post for Tuesday but Bookmarks is taking part in the Uprising Blog Tour (look at day 1 and day 2 for a taste of what’s to come), which is exciting and will be more interesting than what I have for you today. There are a couple new(ish) pieces of information I’ve been stockpiling for you, including the Divergent movie, Suzanne Collins, and the last book in the Delirium trilogy, Requiem.
Firstly, Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games and The Underland Chronicles, has admitted to beginning another YA series! There’s not much information on it besides the fact that it’s being considered a real possibility, and she says she’s focusing mostly on adapting Mockingjay into two movies.
Second, casting is out for The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and Divergent by Veronica Roth. Cool enough when said like that, but interestingly, they both feature the same actress/actor duo. Shailene Woodley will be playing Hazel in the upcoming TFIOS movie and Tris Prior in Divergent, while Ansel Elgort will play Augustus Waters in TFIOS and Caleb Prior, the brother of Tris, in Divergent. [Mini Divergent/Insurgent spoiler to follow] An interesting acting shift will have to happen to go from backstabbing brother to sweet awesome love interest. [You’re safe now]
Third, Lauren Oliver’s Delirium trilogy was completed a few weeks ago, with final book Requiem finishing things off. Though I haven’t managed to finish it yet (sorry!) I’ve heard some disappointing things about the last installment. Apparently the ending wasn’t as impressive as many people had wanted . . . Make up your mind for yourself, I’d say.
Lastly, remember I’ve got an author interview with Jessica Therrien ready to go for Tuesday, which you definitely don’t want to miss.
Hope you enjoyed the surprise post,
PS: This was my 70th post! Crazy! Thanks to everyone who’s been reading Bookmarks and especially Tally, who is also about to celebrate her 70th post, I see. Plus, Bookmarks’ 9 month anniversary is just around the corner!
