If I Stay Movie Trailer Talk

At first, I did not think that If I Stay would make a good movie, but the trailer made me think again. I thought that the movie would fail to portray the many emotions that are constantly present in the book. For me, I am more emotional when reading a book than watching a movie (the one exception is The Fault in Our Stars, I mean, who didn't cry?) I am more of a book person than a movie person, so that makes me a little biased, too.

While I was watching the trailer, I was hit with a sudden sense of deja vu. A strong, female narrator, a sudden tragic event, and a lot of emotions....... My mind immediately thought of The Fault in Our Stars. They are extremely similar. A sick, injured female lead and the tragic tale of their life. An amazing boyfriend who will do anything for her. You can see the TFIOS trailer here. Will If I Stay live up to The Fault in Our Stars movie?

After watching the trailer, I realized that they are actually trying for this movie, unlike some book-to-movie adaptations *cough* Percy Jackson *cough*. The setting was perfect and I am actually happy with most of the casting. I am okay with Chloe Grace Moretz as Mia, and I love who they casted for her parents. I do believe that they could have found someone else to play Adam, but I will at least give him a chance. To see the whole cast list, click here.

I especially love the music. The producers could not have picked a better song than Say Something by A Great Big World. I am looking forward to the awesome cello music too.

On the other hand, there are a few things that I am not sure the movie will portray. How are they going to show that Mia is having an out of body experience without losing some of the emotional edge? Also, I am curious to know how they are going to do the flashbacks. There are a ton of them and I am worried that some of the flashbacks may be confusing to people who have not read the book.

If you have not read the book yet, what are you waiting for? This is an extraordinary book with a promising movie in the works.

What do you think about the movie so far? Are you going to see it? What other book-to-movie adaptations are you excited for?

Hardcover to Hollywood: The Fault In Our Stars

*Drum roll please* 

Ladies and gentlemen of the blogosphere, we here at Crazy For YA present to you, the first Hardcover to Hollywood Chat!
Alright, the first one is about The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. Forewarning to all of you: we saw this movie together, so there may be some references to things we may have said or some jokes that someone *cough cough Max cough* made about Divergent. Also, THERE WILL BE SPOILERS. So if you haven't read the book and seen the movie, I suggest you don't read this. Thank you! The moderator for this Hardcover to Hollywood is Tessa. Without further ado, enjoy!

Tessa: So, how did you prepare for the movie? I mean how many boxes of tissues did you buy?
Max: I re-read the book the week the movie came out and lowered my expectations.
Cassia: Well I just read the book a couple months before so I did not re-read it.
Tessa: What do you think about the casting?
Cassia: Woodley could’ve been better. Her crying was okay but it was fake if you ask me.
Max: Not a big fan of Ansel--he just looked funny. His acting was okay, I guess. Shailene was better but I like her better in Divergent.
Cassia: I thought Ansel was cute. I didn’t during Divergent but maybe I just thought that this time because he was playing Augustus. Oh my gosh, his running in Divergent was hilarious.
Max: He wasn’t cute in either.
Cassia: Yes he was!
Tessa: Personally, I did not like Woodley in either Divergent or TFiOS.
Cassia: She was definitely better in Divergent.
Max: I thought her voice was fitting for the part but not much else.
Tessa: How accurate do you think the movie was to the book?
Cassia: The parts they included were pretty accurate. Loved the gas station scene.
Max: Some parts were missing--Gus’s sisters weren’t in it, he didn’t have a dead ex-girlfriend, and there wasn’t a second video-game scene.
Cassia: OH MY GOSH THAT WOULD’VE BEEN SO COOL!!! The blind video game, I mean.
Tessa: I think that they missed a lot of scenes with Isaac.
Max: Some of the extra dialogue they added was great though. Usually when movies add in dialogue and scenes into well-loved book adaptations, people complain about how they’re not sticking true to the movie or whatever, and I didn’t really see anything in the movie that wasn’t in the book that I didn’t enjoy.
Tessa: What did you think of the secondary characters that we did not get to see much in the book? Like Isaac, Hazel’s parents, etc.
Max: Oh, they didn’t have Hazel’s one girl friend, either! The weird one? Do you remember her?
Cassia: Kaitlyn, or something? I don’t know I wasn’t too fond of her. She meant well, but I didn’t like her.
Tessa: I like Hazel’s parents in the movie more than her parents in the book. They seemed quirky in the movie, like Hazel.
Tessa: What did you think of the setting? Amsterdam and such.
Cassia: It was so pretty. Amsterdam was, I mean. Did they actually shoot it in Amsterdam?
Max: Yes. And the rest was in Pittsburgh.
Cassia: Oh okay that’s good. Am I the only one that didn’t find out everything about this movie?
Max: Yes.
Tessa: Real fangirls do their research.
Cassia: I am a fangirl. 
Tessa: What is your opinion on the music?
Max: NEVER ONCE IN MY LIFE HAVE I ENJOYED A SONG BY ELLIE GOULDING, let alone any of the five million times they were played in the movie.
Tessa: I do agree that there were too many pop songs, but I like the Charlie XCX songs.
Cassia: Yeah. I loved the violinist they had when they were in Amsterdam that was the best music in the entire movie. :)
Max: Oh, on the topic of the music---the Swedish hip hop scared me
Cassia: Definitely that was so weird.
Tessa: Did watching the movie change your perspective on cancer?
Max: The gas station scene actually gives you kind of perspective into Augustus’s head when he’s later into the stages, how he felt about not being able to do anything ever and that made me really sad for all of the cancer patients that feel that way.
Cassia: I agree. I don’t think it changed my perspective, it just deepened it.
Tessa: For me, it made me realize the reality of cancer. There are actually people who have to deal with this everyday and this is not fiction for them. Seeing the Gus literally fall apart had more effect on me during the movie than in the book because I could see it and Hazel’s reaction.
Cassia: Exactly. It makes me hope and pray for a cure now more than ever. That was the point I started to lose it. It was a very well-done scene.
Tessa: What was your favorite part of the movie?
Max: My favorite part was just getting to see the characters and the plot all happen instead of just reading about it.
Cassia: This is gonna sound weird, but the gas station scene, the egging Monica’s car scene, and just Ansel in general.
Max: I really did like that scene and all of the others with Isaac in them.
Cassia: Who played him? Because I really liked the way he did that.
Max: Nat Wolff.
Tessa: My favorite part the Anne Frank house scene. I loved how it emphasized Hazel’s determination and Gus’s willingness to help Hazel. Also, it was one of the few happy scenes before Gus’s big reveal.
Cassia: I liked the gas station scene. Wait, I already said that didn’t I? Next question please!
Max: I really liked the tagline “ONE SICK LOVE STORY."
Tessa: How would you rate TFiOS in comparison to other book-to-movie adaptations?
Max: Better than the Percy Jackson movies. Then again, getting my head bashed in a car door would be better than the Percy Jackson movies.
Cassia: I haven’t seen them yet. I’m guessing that’s a warning? The best I’ve seen besides this one is I Am Number Four.
Max: It was also better than the City of Bones movie. Much better casting in comparison, also.
Tessa: I agree. I think it is right in league with Divergent. Nothing phenomenal, but the fandom is relatively pleased. Not as good as the Harry Potter movies, which are the top of the scale for me.
Cassia: Still haven’t seen those or read the books. The fandom’s gonna kill me aren’t they?
Max: You just haven’t lived yet.
Tessa: This is why you are not a proper fangirl.
Cassia: Have you seen my Pinterest?
Tessa: Les Mis does not count.
Cassia: We have the best fandom in the world. And by the way, that is the best book to movie adaptation of all time. This one is nowhere near that.
Tessa: The Percy Jackson’s were better just for the sake that there was no music.

Overall, we enjoyed the movie. It was a good representation of the book, but the music and casting left something to be desired. Another job well done, John Green.

Book Blitz | Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

Let's Get Lost
Release Date: 07/29/ 14
Harlequin Teen

Summary from Goodreads:
Five strangers. Countless adventures. One epic way to get lost.

Four teens across the country have only one thing in common: a girl named LEILA. She crashes into their lives in her absurdly red car at the moment they need someone the most.

There's HUDSON, a small-town mechanic who is willing to throw away his dreams for true love. And BREE, a runaway who seizes every Tuesday—and a few stolen goods along the way. ELLIOT believes in happy endings...until his own life goes off-script. And SONIA worries that when she lost her boyfriend, she also lost the ability to love.

Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia find a friend in Leila. And when Leila leaves them, their lives are forever changed. But it is during Leila's own 4,268-mile journey that she discovers the most important truth— sometimes, what you need most is right where you started. And maybe the only way to find what you're looking for is to get lost along the way.

Early Praise:
“Reminiscent of John Green’s Paper Towns and road trip novels that feature a teen paving the way to adulthood, Alsaid’s debut is a gem among contemporary YA novels.” – School Library Journal

“Five love stories, beautifully woven together by a special girl in search of adventure, hope, and full appreciation of life’s simple pleasures. A do-not-miss.  ” – Justine Magazine

“Moving and poignant.”  - Glitter Magazine

“An entertaining and romantic road-trip debut.” – Kirkus

"Leila's quest to find the Northern Lights takes readers on a captivating cross-country journey, where four strangers' adventures collide into one riveting tale of finding yourself." ―YABooksCentral.com

“This will likely be a popular summer hit, especially for older teen about to embark on their own journeys of self-discovery.” –Booklist

Top Ten Tuesday #9: Characters We Would Want to be on a Deserted Island With

This is a weekly meme hosted by the amazing girls at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's theme is the characters we would want to be with on a deserted island. (That's a mouthful.)

Cassia, Max, and I were enjoying our trip to Hawaii, but we were spending most of the trip inside our hotel room. So, Cassia came up with a brilliant idea, "We should go on a boat tour of the islands."
"Sure," I said. "Let me book a tour at the desk."
Ten minutes later, after an exchausting walk to the lobby, I returned.
"Well," I sighed. "It turns out the next available tour is next week, after we leave."
"Really?" Cassia exclaimed.
"Who needs a guide?" Max said. "All we need is a boat, I can take care of the rest."
"When did you learn how to drive a boat?" I asked.
"Just trust me," Max said.
"Oh, no," I groaned.

The next day.....

"Woohoo! This is a great day for a boat trip, don't you think?" Cassia shouted into the wind.
"I guess," I said. I could not tell if the butterflies in my stomach were from sea sickness or Max's careless driving.
"Calm down, I've got this under control," Max said just as she turned into our first island. It was beautiful and secluded -- the perfect place for our beach picnic.
"Wow," Cassia said while getting out of the boat. "It is so peaceful and quiet. Much better than the crowded beach at the hotel."
We peacefully ate our lunch among the coconut trees, but it was soon time to go. Max went to start up  the boat, but it did not make any noise. The engine was dead and we were stranded.

After Max said a myriad of creative words, we started to panic. We are just three bookworms who have no idea how to live in the real world. How are we supposed to survive this? But, just as thoughts of giving up starting going through our heads, a figure emerges on the horizon. Who is it? Who do we hope it is?

1. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games: She's had similar experiences, so she'd know what to do to help the three of us survive.
2. Harry Potter from Harry Potter: He's also been through a lot and he's also got some wicked magical powers that I can foresee coming in handy.
3. Tarver from These Broken Stars: If he was able to survive on a deserted planet he knew nothing about, I think he'd be able to help us out on some regular island.


4. Four (Tobias) from Divergent: He is Dauntless, being on a deserted island is a piece of chocolate cake for him.
5. Hermione Granger from Harry Potter: First, she has magic. Second, she knows, like everything. Third, she is awesome.
6. Gale Hawthorne from The Hunger Games: He is pretty much the best hunter (besides Katniss) in YA. He also knows about plants and such too.

7. Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices: Knows what he's doing, and looks extremely good while doing it.
 8. Tris Prior from Divergent: Do I even need to say anything?
9. Percy Jackson from Percy Jackson: Hello, his dad is Poseidon. We can ride on dolphins to safety! And hopefully he can get us some food.

"Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love.
It did not end well."
Karou is an artist. Her extraordinary sketchbooks are filled with glorious drawings of angels, demons, and everything in between.

What the students do not know is that everything she draws and says is real.
Brimstone, the beast Karou knows as her father, makes her run errands for him, which are always collecting teeth. Karou does not know why she sees her creatures, or why they picked her to do these macabre tasks. But she does not ask questions -- until now.
Black handprints have been mysteriously appearing around the world. Bystanders in every country are claiming to have seen winged strangers place the marks there.

An unearthly war is coming to Karou's world and she might have the power to change it.

North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley

Hey everybody! Here's another review for you all. I finished this book and reviewed it a while ago, and I just got around to posting it. Sorry about that. Anywho, here you go!

North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley

Terra is beautiful. From behind. Her body is perfectly toned and in shape. However, when she turns around, her face isn’t so beautiful. Or that’s what she and her classmates think, even her boyfriend. But when she runs into--literally runs into--Jacob, she starts to doubt herself even more than she has before. However, it’s not in a bad way. Can Terra work up the courage to face her fears and become comfortable in her own skin?

As some of you may have seen from our Friday 56 post, I just couldn’t get into this book. I usually love books like this, but I didn’t love this one. I don’t normally compare books to other stereotypical books, but here I will:

Summary from Goodreads:
She has a destiny so great that even the gods fear her.

After a vicious attack and learning that her favorite rockstar is an Olympian god, she is thrust
into her new life as the Oracle of Delphi, the prophesier of the future. Setting out to fulfill the
prophecy she has been given, Chloe learns of how great she is to become, all the while fighting
