YA Book News & TMI Movie Casting Rumors

There's been lots of exciting news this week, mainly with three highly anticipated book trailer reveals. First I'm going to squash a movie rumor that went around this week that had TMI fans scratching their heads trying to figure out what to believe and what not to.

TMI Movie Casting News: Many fans were wondering why with the news from both Just Jared and MTV's Hollywood Crush reporting that ALEC had been cast, why I didn't post about it. My answer is, because unless I hear from Cassie herself or the studio it's a RUMOR. Cassie has been very faithful at posting the TMI movie casting news first to her fans before any media outlets have, via her tumblr, and since she didn't post about Alec I didn't post about it. She did however come out and say,

"Casting: rumors
And yes, I know there are casting rumors swirling and you want to know whether they’re true or not. Unfortunately I can’t confirm or deny (and I was hoping to get out of this without sounding like Nixon) at the moment. Hopefully this Dark Suspense will not last too long…".
As soon as Cassie confirms the casting of Alec, I'll post about it here on the blog. With filming being a few weeks away, I'm guessing we'll be hearing something soon! *crosses fingers it's this week*


The book trailer for Sarah J. Maas's debut, Throne of Glass was revealed this week on Hollywood Crush. You can check it out below. I'm so excited for this book to be released! It's fabulous!!!

Per their article "The long-awaited debut of author Sarah J. Maas, "Throne of Glass" is the beginning of what promises to be an epic, multi-book (we hope!) adventure—beginning when teenage assassin Celaena Sardothien is released from a life of imprisonment and brutal labor in order to compete at court for the title of royal assassin. If she wins, she wins her freedom. If she loses, the only freedom she'll know is death. And with two maybe-suitors, a series of murders and all the tangled intrigues and intricacies of life at court, Celaena's story is one you'll definitely want to follow when the book comes out August 7.

EW's Shelf Life debuted the book trailer for Libba Bray's The Diviners! I've heard this book is amazing. I can't wait to read this one. Check out the fabulously done, creepy trailer HERE (will post the trailer when the code is available).

Per their articleThe Diviners — isn’t out until Sept. 18, but the film rights have already been snapped up by Paramount. It follows a glamorous group of young people in the 1920s who, aided by magic powers, find themselves in an epic battle of good vs. evil when occult-based murders come to light. EW is lucky to have a sneak peek at the novel with a brand new trailer and excerpt from the novel. Read the excerpt here.
