This has been a very unsettling weekend for me in the world of literature..!
First, as some of you may have read in my other post, Wuthering Heights is now being re-published...promoted by dun dun dun TWILIGHT. Sigh, of course. Check out the post for more info about that horrible mess.
BUT in other news - guess what I just found out today? You know the book Wings by Aprilynne Pike? It's like a brand new book - it just came out in May this year! And it is already being made into a movie. Now, I'll admit that I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, but as soon as I heard it was going to be made into a movie I knew I would have to read it before seeing it on the big screen. (It's just like a weird thing of mine that I have to do..haha.)
Until..... I saw who was going to be played as "sheltered, homeschooled" Laurel..
Are you joking? Out of all the actressess (I don't even like to consider her one, no offense but her acting is terrible!) they have to choose her?? I'm sorry if I'm tearing apart your heart you "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus/whatever the heck her name is these days" biggest fans out there - but let me just tell you now that I am probably the most anti-Miley person out there. (: And not ashamed! It might sound judgemental, cruel, heartless, etc. but I just can not stand her at all!! Ugh sorry major venting here. :P
Isn't Laurel supposed to be blonde? Guess they'll just put on the Hannah wig! ....
And I swear if I see Joe Jonas playing as David, I'll just have to strangle someone. It's bad enough that they are making this into yet another Disney movie. Ugh it's just really annoying for me. Sorry if I sound like a complaining, whiny, five year old.
Anyways. Yep just wanted everyone to know the "great" news. I changed my mind about seeing the movie. I'd rather eat glass. You can read more about it here.
All I gotta say is, I realllllly hope they don't make it into a musical. Because then I definitely would NOT be able to tolerate the trailer or previews for it.
