Page to Screen is a new original feature I’m experimenting with where I talk about film adaptation of YA books.
And what better way to launch my new feature than to celebrate a squee over a new trailer for a book I didn’t even realise was getting made into a film? (Bad Nemo!)
Which I haven’t read yet, but I DO own, and have been meaning to read it, but you knwo what it’s like with hundreds of book on your to-read shelf. You just don’t have time to read it all.
I want to thank Cuddlebuggery Book Blog for posting about this in their Buzz Worthy News, otherwise I totally would have missed it. And that’s not cool.
Anyway, this trailer looks so cool! And as I have NOT read the book, I can’t say whether it’s truly truthful or not, but I did get the feel from the reviews I read (which caused me to buy the book in the first place) that it was a little bit darker, edgier, and grittier, and that the male lead (who is all kinds of hot if you’re into that kind of thing) is much more of an asshole and they enter into a sexual relationship… I mean, the trailer makes it look like a massive makeover movie… which isn’t necessarily a BAD thing, I just kinda hoped they’d stay truer to the source material…
Because we all saw what happened to Vampire Academy, right?
Anyway! I’m excited for this film, even if it’s not like the book, which I will read before I see the film!
