Graveyard Book–The Movie

The LA Times has a juicy article about Neil Gaiman and the 15th anniversary collection of Neverwhere for American audiences.  Hidden in there is a tidbit that teases about the Graveyard Book the movie:

“I don’t know if I’m allowed to say much because huge, cool, strange, interesting things have been happening in the background with ‘The Graveyard Book’ movie, but I do not believe I’m allowed to tell you any of them until official announcements, actual press releases, come out …. Suffice to say, interesting things are happening,” Gaiman said.

I am so glad that things are looking up after the last Graveyard Book film plans fell apart.  The book is so cinematic that it plays like a film in your head already.  It’s one of those books that begs to be a great film.

Kirkus Best Teen Books of 2011

Kirkus has a list of their top picks for teen books this year.  Let me just say that this is not a list that mirrors my own picks.  Yes, there are several of my favorites on the list, but others were books that I didn’t finish and still others are ones that I have on my lists but have not yet read.


I am happy to see Chime, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Beauty Queens, and White Crow on the list.  Those would be my favorites of the Kirkus selections.

Do you see your favorites on the list?  Let me know what they are, so I can try them out!
