Miley Cyrus is not even CLOSE to having wings!

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.


  1. Yeah, I'm definitely not a Miley fan. I'm disappointed that she's going to play this character.

  2. OMG that is horrible! I'm right there with you in the anti-Miley group. I don't know what it is about her that I don't like. I agree she is a terrible actor. And I can't stand her voice, it's all scratchy and sounds like she's all stuffed up. Anyways, I don't know if I will watch the movie now. I will still read the book though.

  3. I'm the same way with book to movie adaptations, I have to read the book first.

    And I haven't read Wings either but I'm assuming they're casting Miley because she's popular right now and will drawn in an audience. Which sucks because their are a lot of good young actors out there.

  4. Yeah, I find this disappointing too even though I've never read the book. The rumor that made me cringe though was Kristen Stewart as Mary from The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Just no.

  5. That's so disappointing! Miley has type cast herself into a role as Hannah Montana. She'll ruin it!

  6. Andrea, I heard that too! I hope Kristen Stewart doesn't play Mary!

  7. miely cryus will ruin this movie and this authers caree. miley"s only fans are young girls and this book is aimed at teenages. I would love to start a petition in hope of saveing this movie, but am terrible with computers. If anyone does start one, please let this blog know. I would love to sign it. THERE IS HOPE!

  8. please, this is a great book, i can't stand to see it ruined like this!

  9. Get her out of the movie! Dakota Fanning would be the perfect actress to play Laurel.


Thanks, I love what you have to say!
