Book to Movie Adaptions!

It looks like 2015 and 2016 are big years for movie adaptions! We've already seen remakes for Cinderella and Home (originally titled The True Meaning of Smek Day), and  Me, Earle, and the Dying Girl. Of course there's also the highly anticipated follow up movies to the Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner serieses.

 

Here are a couple more to add to the list.

 

Goosebumps: It's not necessarily a movie based off one of the books, but ALL the books. Could be a fun to see to get into the Halloween spirit!

 

The Jungle Book: This isn't the Disney musical you're used to, no songs here. Take a look at the teaser for  this star-studded, live-action version:

There are countless film adaptions coming out for adults and kids, so keep an eye out for them, and of course, check out the books too!

TeenQuake 2015

“Poetry often gets a bad rap. Boring, archaic, irrelevant. These three writers—from newbie to icon of the form—will set the record straight. Verse novels are intimate, hard-hitting, and transformative. Come for a reading, stay for a conversation about craft and book signing.” Learn more about Teenquake and Litquake here. Books Inc. and Not Your Mother’s Book Club are honored to co-present such an exciting event/program!

NYMBC In a Flash event featuring Nicola Yoon and David Levithan

Shout out to @ravenousreader for taking this great photo of Nicola Yoon and David Levithan. Friday night's event was Everything, Everything we could have wanted. The author's clicked, had wonderful and insightful questions for each other and the ‪#‎nymbc‬ crowd was just as curious. Thank you to Nicola and David for coming all the way from NYC and L.A., we hope to have you back Another Day, and thank you for all the booklovers who came out to support! We couldn't do it without you! ‪#‎seewhatididthere‬ ‪#‎literaryhumoristhebesthumor‬

Patrick Ness Fundraising for Refugee Aid

If you haven't heard already, YA author Patrick Ness reached out to his readers and writing community on twitter yesterday to raise money for the refugees flooding into Europe. Ness tweeted that he would match up to £10,000. Within hours, big name authors like John Green, Jojo Moyes, Rosamund Lupton and many others promised to match the following £10K. With the help of the writing community and the support of countless every-day people, Ness's outreach has raised  almost £200K and is still growing. For us Americans, that's 303,804 dollars. That's amazingly crazy! Follow the action on twitter. If you'd like to donate to the cause, here's the link to Ness's fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving.

 

Books Inc. is very excited and honored to be hosting Patrick Ness October 8, 2015.
