I don’t know how many of you have seen the news, but it looks like Sarah J. Maas‘s super-popular Throne of Glass series is the latest title to get the adaptation treatment.
According to Hypable, the pilot will be written by Kira Snyder (The 100), and directed by Anna Foerster (Outlanders). There hasn’t been any word yet on anything like casting, but it could go one of two ways – either the super fast route that Shadowhunters took, or the “what ever became of that pilot” route that most of the other shows went. Shadowhunters was incredibly quick from announcement to casting to filming, and was great about keeping fans updated during the whole process. The show itself wasn’t the most amazing, but that is another story.
But speaking of “what ever happened to”, what ever happened to most of the other announced adaptations? Have any of you heard any word about Sherrilyn Kenyon‘s Dark-Hunters or Chronicles of Nick, or Kresley Cole‘s Arcana Chronicles? Not to mentioned Tahereh Mafi‘s Shatter Me series, which was announced the same time as her husband Ransom Riggs‘ Miss Peregrine movie? I have tried to find release info about Lauren Kate‘s Fallen movie, too, with no luck. It has already been filmed, and from what I can tell it has been finished for quite a while, but there has been absolutely no word on release date at all. Weird.
So, yes or no on the Throne of Glass series? What other book-to-series titles are you waiting for?

It has been a while (for me, at least) since I have done a cover lover post, so this one is a bit of a mash-up. It runs the range from adult to young adult, some good and some…not so much.

How is everyone’s Christmas countdown going? I cancelled Christmas a few years ago, since I couldn’t stand it anymore, but I actually felt like going out and shopping a bit this year (not so much for Christmas, but I don’t ever go near a store between November and January). So, looks like I am only… Continue reading Cover Lover – 7 New Titles
I am still working on adding series to the “101 Series to Read Before You Die” page, and it looks like Amazon has a few new pre-order titles that I will be adding to the new release pages tonight (like Shield of Winter).

It seems I haven’t been finding that many covers that catch my eye lately – or maybe things are just slow this time of year.

Kim recently dropped me a line to see what I had heard about the multiple deals Sherrilyn Kenyon had inked to bring her many, many series to life on the screen. I started doing some digging…and only came up with a little post from May saying that things were progressing on The Chronicles of Nick… Continue reading From Page to Screen…The Updates
I spent this evening on a major new release updating binge, and when I surfaced it was to find five new covers. Didn’t think I took that long doing the updating, but ok.
