Books to movies

The host will be coming out in 2013, a huge form of constant excitement for the Twihards that are going into a Twilight inspired depression now that Breaking Dawn is out. 

A bit about the book
  • An upcoming film adaption of the book The Host
  • Written by the famous Stepheine Meyers 
  • The Host came out in 2008
  • Stephenie Meyer is one of the prouducers along with Nick Wechsler, Steve Schwartz, and Paula Mae Schwatrz
  • Saoirse Ronan has been case as the Melanie/Stryder 

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. 

Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy that takes over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. But Wanderer, the invading "soul" who occupies Melanie's body, finds its former tenant refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

As Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of Jared, a human who lives in hiding, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she's never met. Soon Wanderer and Melanie-reluctant allies-set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring one of the most unusual love triangles in literature, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel about the persistence of love and the essence of what it means to be human.

THE HOST movie opens in theaters on March 29, 2013.
A parasitic alien soul is injected into the body of Melanie Stryder. Instead of carrying out her race's mission of taking over the Earth, "Wanda" (as she comes to be called) forms a bond with her host and sets out to aid other free humans.

Jenifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson are back! 

Catching Fire *for the ones who've been living in the Amish paradise* is the second installment of the Hunger Games. 

The book: 
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. 
She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. 
Katniss should be relieved, happy even. 
After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. 
Yet nothing seems right. 
Gale holds her at an icy distance. 
Peeta has turned his back on her completely. 
And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
  • Written by the talented and fasinating novelist Suzanne Collins
  • 2008 Bestseller
  • Was first published on Steptember 1, 2009 by Scholastic

I'm looking forward to this movie. I especially excited to see Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair, who was probably one of the most pragmatic characters in the novel. 

I'll be honest I think this is the one I am most excited for

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder -- much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing -- not even a smear of blood -- to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. 
But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? 
And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? 
The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . . 

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

  • Is the first book in The Mortal Instruments series
  • It is set in the authors home town, New York
  • First published in the US on March 27, 2007
I've been a fan of the books for a while, though I've only read the Mortal Instruments series, I'm interested in how it will turn out, especially curious about the ending and how movie fans will react to it...should be interesting. *Smiles Devilishly* 

When I'm sitting in the theaters and I know something the majority of people don't know, I feel special and slightly evil, with a hint of smug? Not many of my friends read these, so seeing their reactions is going to be priceless!
