Book Geek Week News for 2013

Hey, everybody. Hope you all are having a great holiday week. Wish you all good tidings before, during, and after New Years Eve.

Just wanted to drop by a review along with some other news.

First off: news; with the Twilight saga thing ending there are two movies coming out soon (just around the corner) that are straight from the supernatural fiction book shelves: Beautiful Creatures coming out in February 2013 and City of Bones (part of the Mortal Instruments series) in August of 2013.

The significance is that despite the 7 month gap in between movies, there is a question of which one will take the throne for film adaptation of a supernatural YA novel. There is also the question if these movies will capture the series well, quench the thirst of the book fans, and also create a strong hold on the audiences that go watch them.

Nevertheless, with such movies coming out, it is seen that the supernatural genre in the YA section is taking popularity. And among them there are other novels being adapted to film next year. Here is a list of a few I found on

1. World War Z by Max Brooks (set to release on June 2013)
2. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card (set to release November 2013)

3. Paranoia by Joseph Finder (set to release October 2013)

4. The Host by Stephenie Meyer (set to release March 2013)

5. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (set to release November 2013)

And these are just a few of them. I guess now with less new ideas in the world of cinema, most people working in that medium are adapting movies to cash in the big check or really haven't found a new idea besides making a romantic comedy, action movie, or a movie based directly on a book or some significant thing in the media. But enough of my ranting on that.

 So far, things have come out good. Books never stop being in popularity whether e-book style or physical print with all the binding and non-virtual pages. And other good news: picked out some interesting novels and a few book reviews are due after this post, (right before New Years Eve!)

Til Next Blogpost,
