Another YA Week Of Happiness!

divergent

Every so often, there comes a week when there are so many goodies happening with my YA book fandoms, that I just can’t seem to wipe a smile off my face. This is one of those weeks!

Last night, The Maze Runner official movie poster and first trailer made its debut. After I finished reading The Hunger Games trilogy, and as much of the Divergent, The Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series as was available at the time, I took more recommendations from my Tumblr family on what to read next. They told me to pick up The Maze Runner trilogy and I did. I also chose the series because it was 100% completed.

I’ve posted before that I hate getting into a series only to have to wait a year or two for the next book to be released. (Looking at you, Veronica Roth and Cassandra Clare!) So The Maze Runner checked all those boxes. There was even an available prequel book, which I finished reading about a month ago.

So, I was all set for the first trailer to finally grace us with its presence! That day ended up being yesterday and oh boy, am I pumped! I figured the trailer would be shown before the Divergent movie (and it still might), so last night was a treat.

The Divergent movie opens later this week and I will be seeing it twice this weekend. Once on Thursday with my brother, and again on Saturday with my friend Shannen. Both of my tickets (and my brother’s) are free, thanks to Viggle, Swagbucks, and Shopkick. I’m tellin y’all. If you’re not taking advantage of these programs, you’re missing out! (Well, except for Viggle.)

So yes. I’m excited about this week! I’m up to my armpits in Divergent news, pictures, interviews, and hype. The red carpet premier is tonight! And I’ve also done my fangirl duty with The Maze Runner trailer as well. I put the first leaked version of it on my Tumblr, and created a handful of GIF sets to please the Gladers.

Ahh, my book life is good.

The Mortal Instruments Official Movie Posters

The past couple of months have been quite eventful in the land of all my young adult literature fandoms. My cup runneth over, y’all! I’ve pretty much in nonstop super fangirl mode for the past week. So many exciting announcement and reveals are happening!

Let me give you the rundown right quick!

1. The Hunger Games started its own official Instagram account. Check it out: instagram.com/thehungergames! On there, they’ve begun hinting that something is going to go down on May 14th. Eeeekkk!

2. Continuing the Instagram theme, The Mortal Instruments’ Instagram page was teasing official character posters all week. We got to see Simon, Valentine, and Magnus Bane’s posters. So exciting!

3. Over in Divergent land, a lot was happening as well! Veronica Roth revealed the cover art for the final book in the trilogy, Allegiant, on the Today Show. It comes out on October 22nd and I can’t wait!

4. Keeping it in Divergent-land, it looks like the sequel is already in the works! Deadline Hollywood reported that Brian Duffield had signed on to write the script for Insurgent, the second book in the trilogy. This is an extremely good sign as Divergent has only been filming for a few weeks! What a vote of confidence!

5. Divergent isn’t the only one of my beloved series to get the greenlight towards a sequel movie adaptation, though. In Cannes, it was just announced that The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes (book #2) is being put into production and will begin shooting later this year.

6. The Mortal Instruments‘ prequel series, The Infernal Devices, also has a script in the works. This news didn’t break in the past week, but it’s still fresh enough in my mind to make me include it in this post! Oh yeah!

7. And lastly, let me tell you about the most recent book I’ve read, The Maze Runner. Filming is set to get underway on Monday, in New Orleans. Some really amazing concept art has bee premiered by Entertainment Weekly. It was even more detailed and chilling than I even imagined it! Now, I’m not paying too much attention to the cast and production of the movie just yet because I’m not done reading the series. I still have to start/finish The Scorch Trials, The Death Cure, and prequel book, The Kill Order. I’d rather do so while creating the characters in my own head. Then, I’ll re-read the series later after getting up-to-speed with movie filming.

Sooooooo, that’s why I’ve been smiling ear-to-ear this week! The worlds I escape to, when real life is just too much, had a lot happen recently and it really brightened my spring!
