Black City by Elizabeth Richards has not even released yet and the rights to a movie have been purchased. Yes you heard that right. This is a trend I have been monitoring for quite a while now and it looks like ya books will be making big movie screen magic for a while. Screen Gems is the film company responsible for the purchase and is looking for a writer to work the adaptation.
A dark and tender post-apocalyptic love story set in the aftermath of a bloody war.
In a city where humans and Darklings are now separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after a terrible war, sixteen-year-olds Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the unthinkable—they fall in love. Bonded by a mysterious connection that causes Ash’s long-dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they’re caught, they’ll be executed—but their feelings are too strong.
When Ash and Natalie then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that could result in both their deaths.
The Selection by Kiera Cass. Earlier this year we had heard from HollywoodCrush.com that this YA novel would become a tv series. Well finally we have an update. Spoiler TV announced that The Selection reshoots will be starting early next year Kiera posted on her blog that they will be announcing the chosen cast for the series. Even though a pilot doesn't ensure the show will make it to the air we are just as excited for this. Let's cross our fingers and hope that we get to see it soon.
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself--and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
