Read it First!--Upcoming YA Movie Adaptations

The Fault in Our Stars. If I Stay. Divergent. Are you noticing a trend at the movie theaters?

Of course, that’s just some of what’s come out in theaters this summer. Hollywood has been adapting YA novels at a rapid-fire pace pretty much ever since Harry Potter made it cool. And a little quick googling will bestow many hits upon thee if you’re searching for what book-to-movie might just be the next Hunger Games. Here are just a few promising adaptations still in early stages of production giving you plenty of time to catch the book first - if you haven't already read them!

Listen Before You See It

With movie awards season in full swing, I started thinking about all of the soon-to-be movie novels that I need to listen to  before I head to the theaters in 2014. With everything from a slew of young adult selections to hard-hitting biographies set to hit the big screen this year, there is a lot to look forward to!

What book turned movie are you most excited to see this year?

 

What's After HBO?

The HBO series, Boardwalk Empire is insanly popular, and the the season finale is just a few weeks away (Sunday, December 5th).  Realizing that many of you will soon need something to do with that extra free time I have created a list of items that you might enjoy.

 

  

Movie Guides Based on Mood

I enjoy watching movies and my favorite way to find one is to pick a film based on how I feel at the moment.  A few months ago, when I felt like watching a movie, I would recall as many titles as possible and try to come up a few that fit my mood.  It wasn't exactly easy to find just the right movie, until I found three guides in the HCPL collection.  It's been a cinch to find one ever since. 

Try the guides for yourself and see what you think: 

Find a Clip From Your Favorite Movie With MovieClips!

I'm not the kind of person who can fire off movie lines from an impressive catalog of movies. But for those with the knack for memorizing lines from movies, you can type those lines in at movieclips.com and see the clip that goes with the quote. The site has worked with several movie studios to get the clips online and the quality of the clips is outstanding.  

I typed in "my name is inigo montoya" and found this clip from one of my all-time favorite movies, The Princess Bride. Honestly, I could spend hours on this site browsing through all the clips. Check it out and let me know what your favorite movie quote is!
