Long time, no see! Sorry readers 😦
Revising my novel has taken up a lot of my time over the last two months. I’ve still been reading, but there hasn’t been as much time to write full reviews.
So I’ve come up with a solution: mini reviews!
I’m planning to divide these reviews up by genre. Today I’ll be starting with my recent reads in YA contemporary:Continue reading “Mini Reviews: Recent YA Contemporary Reads”

(Contains mild spoilers for the book version of Shadow and Bone. All opinions are my own. Some of them might be unpopular opinions.)
It’s happening, readers: a beloved YA series is getting the screen treatment!
I’ve been around long enough to have witnessed many books get the page to screen treatment with varying levels of success. The Martian and The Hunger Games were fairly faithful renditions. Other things – Percy Jackson, City of Bones, etc. – were less successful. There are also adaptations that changed things – think of Love Simon or the recently released Moxie – that stayed true to the intent of the original work, even if the final product was different. In short: adaptations are a risky endeavour. Deviate too much, you risk pissing off the fans. But there’s just as much risk in not doing enough. It’s a slippery slope!
At the end of the day, what matters most is that the people in charge are respectful of the source material.
This brings us back to Shadow and Bone.Continue reading “Discussion Post: Shadow and Bone”
