Oh. Holy. Crap.

  1. I know! It looks so good. :) I've loved sharing it with my students all day today. Nothing better than proving to them, once again, that almost every fabulous movie actually came from a great book!

  4. I really, really, really, (and many times over) hope it doesn't suck.

    Not a fan of whoever it is they picked for Gale and Peeta.

    haha, i'm with the 'almost' criers. Watched it at least 5 times already, here to say I still have to fight back the waterworks toward the end of the trailer

  7. I'm with the full on criers. This looks like it's going to be spectacular.

    I don't understand all the people who are whining about the casting. People always whine about the casting until they see the movie and then they get over it. Personally, I think the casting is perfect. No, it's not who I saw "in my head." But how can it be?

  8. I've watched this 3x in the past 24 hours. I'd watch it more but the phones keep ringing at work. :D I'm very excited for this movie!

  9. Seriously, I am just SO happy with it. Gale, especially, is very similar to how I pictured him.

  10. This movie looks awesome. I am excited to see it.

    It even inspired me to create a list of upcoming YA Fantasy book based movies on my blog!

    The Hunger Games made my list!

  12. Becky, oh, I hadn't thought of that! Good for you. I bet that's been a blast.

    Sandy, I really think she is as well. Can't wait to see her in action.

    Mari, gives you chills, doesn't it?

    Laura, me, too. Me, too.

    Alexa, lol!

    Camie, does it? That's awesome, I love that! I really think it looks spectacular.

    librarian, lol. I hear ya. It's going to be very emotional.

    Diana, exactly. I just put aside what my mental images from the book and give the film its own chance to wow me. And frankly I'm already wowed. So exciting!

    Alicia, hehe. No shame. I'm about to watch it again right now. :)

    Janssen, I love hearing that. And I'm glad. Can't wait to see the full length film.

    R.J., it really does. I'll have to check out your list for sure. Sounds great.

    Matt, LOL. Haymitch, right? ;)

  13. I thought I was just hormonal and pregnant, cause I shed full on tears too, but I guess that's the norm! I was not expecting that flood of emotion!

  14. Aww dammit it looks really good!

  15. Liza, I completely understand. That brief shot of Rue killed me.

    Holly, right?!

  16. I was seriously on the fence with going to the theater to see this (I loathe the theater) but man, now I don't know how I can avoid it. Still bummed on the Lenny Kravitz casting but I'll have to learn to deal.

Angie’s Best Books of the Decade

I am winded, you guys. Winded from laboring over this list. This is the first time I've attempted to cobble together a Best Books of the Decade list, and I can't say I'll be up to it for another ten years or so. But my, I couldn't resist the challenge (or profound pleasure, if we're being honest). I kept trying to winnow it down, kept forcing myself to be ruthless. Like somehow I could (or should) keep it to a top ten (flat impossible) or at least a top twenty-five (who are we kidding?). But after bidding those constraints good riddance, I really did press myself to take a hard, clear look at what hurts (to mangle my favorite Hemingway quote). Because these novels hurt in the best way. Each entry on this list is a five-star book in my books. Which means I wouldn't change a single thing about a single one of them. They are the ones I call perfect when I recommend them to friends and strangers. They are the ones I have read and reread over the past ten years and…

Angie's Best Books of 2019

It is the last day of the year. How are you doing at this point? You good to go on? I'm going to. For a number of important reasons, which are too varied (or possibly too private) to enumerate here. So how about we say we shall go on because: "Gansey. That's all there is." I find that "Because Gansey" is highly motivating when motivation is thin on the ground.

Also thin on the ground have been my posts this year. And yet, I'm still not stopping. And I still greatly enjoy arriving at this final post of the year. And so here I leave my best books of the year. It wound up being a respectable nineteen titles this year. Nineteen for 2019. That's down a fair bit from last year's whopping twenty-eight, but rather on par with previous years' lists and more than 2016 and 2017, respectively. I'm pleased. I'm pleased with every book on this list, with every one of the books you shared with me and the ones I've been able to share with you. …

Triple Prize Pack Giveaway!

Not long ago I discovered a few of you tweeting to get me to the 300 follower mark. As little things I read on Twitter often do, that one sort of made my day. You're all really too sweet for words and I joked that perhaps it was time for a giveaway. The truth is I've been in the mood to have one for awhile now and this is as good a time as any. So here's the deal. This will be a triple prize pack giveaway, meaning there are three packs and you can indicate which one you'd like to be entered to win in the comments. I will choose three random winners and contact them. This giveaway is open to anywhere The Book Depository ships! Here's the list of countries, FYI. Since I tend to read a lot of urban fantasy, straight fantasy, and young adult, I've chosen a set of each including all books currently in print in that series.
