Road trip number deux!
But this road trip is actually not only one road trip; it's two.
while I am right this very moment going on a Metaphorical Road Trip,
I recently went on an Actual Road Trip,
both of which are Very Good Things!
So first of order, I took an Actual Road Trip to my family cabin over the weekend.
(Another Very Good Thing because my college doesn't give us a spring break. Waa.)
And one of many good things about that trip was that I got to make almost exactly the same trip that I'll be making while moving to the Santa Barbara area at the end of May!
(Yes, a Very Good Thing.)
Another good thing about this Actual Road Trip was that I got to do this.
(Recognize that lovely font anyone?)
For our metaphorical road trip today
--otherwise known as a YA Highway Roadtrip--
Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
This Week's Topic: The Veronica Mars Kickstarter success makes us wonder, what YA book would you raise $2 million to see a movie version of?
I will be taking you back a little bit to yesteryear...
Yep, guys. This little gem
My best friend and other bookish half, Emily, sort of disagrees and thinks that Libba Bray's Diviners series would make a better movie, and it's not that I wouldn't also LOVE to see it on the big screen,
(Have I maybe heard a rumor somewheres that it's being optioned? Don't quote me on that though!)
The Gemma Doyle trilogy just really has the sentimental value for me.
This book was easily the first series after Harry Potter that I fell truly in love with.
Back in a time when I didn't know any living author's names, besides J. K. Rowling's of course.
Back in a time when I went into the big wide book store not knowing the new releases that were already on shelves or having Goodreads reviews to skew my treasure hunt.
Back when a book store was just that, a book store, and all the magical intrigue that comes with those two beautiful words.
I flew through this series as fast as I did the Harry Potter series because I liked it that much, which is saying something coming down from a HP high.
And I was SO EXCITED to hear that it was being optioned.
I freaking had my cast picked out and everything!
But it fell through.
And now I want my movie!!!!
