John Green’s novel Looking for Alaska is one step closer to becoming a movie, meaning that the writers from Green’s previously successful movie adaption of The Fault in Our Stars and the currently filming Paper Towns, Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, have signed on to write Alaska. Fans have been waiting 10 years for the adaption of Green’s first novel, which was released in 2005, and the film seems to finally be out of the years it spent stuck in development.
A book is being published that is a bibliography on J.K. Rowling from 1997-2013 that will be a in depth look at the entire publication history Rowling wrote the popular Harry Potter series. The information will be more than the snippets that we got from Pottermore, and according to an article about the book on Huffington Post’s books department: ‘The hefty volume includes a cornucopia of delights for Harry Potter obsessives, from flow charts helping early readers determine whether their editions have value beyond the sentimental, to an exhaustive catalog of every edition of Rowling’s books, to tantalizing morsels of insight about the writing and editing process.’
