How I Live Now movie trailer

How I Live Now was Meg Rosoff’s debut YA novel.  I fell in love with Meg’s writing as soon as I started How I Live Now and I’ve read all of her books since then.  Each one is incredibly unique and you never quite know what to expect when you pick up her next book.

How I Live Now is not due out until early 2014 in NZ but I can’t wait to see it.

Beautiful Creatures Movie

The Beautiful Creatures movie, based on the first book in the Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, is out in New Zealand now.  I haven’t read the books but I went to the movie today and loved it so much that I immediately want to go and get all the books in the series.  The cast and the story was great so I highly recommend the movie.

I’d be interested to know, if you’ve read the books and seen the movie, how do they compare?

Now is Good movie trailer

Jenny Downham is one of my favourite authors and her book Before I Die, about a girl with terminal cancer has been made into a movie called Now is Good, starring Dakota Fanning and Jeremy Irvine (Joey’s master from the War Horse movie).  I’m not sure when it’s due out in NZ but I’d love to see it.

Win a Lorax prize pack

One of my favourite Dr. Seuss books is The Lorax so you can imagine how excited I was when I found out they were making a movie of the book (I love the movie of The Grinch and Cat in the Hat).  The movie is released in NZ next Thursday (29 March) and I have a Lorax prize pack to give away, including a copy of the eco-edition of the book, a Hoyts movie pass, and a recycled paper notebook.

Thanks to everyone who entered this competition.  The winner is Stephanie.
