A trailer, a movie, and a tour.

The Trailer


Releasing next month (December 12th for Australia), Matched is a love story set in a dystopic, futuristic world; and in the Society, they decide.

In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.


At first, I can't say I loved the trailer. However, I went back to it, and it's not half bad. It's actually pretty good. Also, the site has changed. It's looking quite spiffy, and you can even GET MATCHED, if you have a Facebook account. ;)

The Movie

No doubt you've heard of If I Stay, a contemporary YA novel that focuses on Mia, a car crash, death, mortality, memory, family . . .  love. Hauntingly beautiful, a stoic and poignant tale of a heartwrenching and trialing period of a young girl's life. Definitely a must-read. Anyway, Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay, has received much news on the progress with its movie. The movie will be produced by the same people as that big vampire 'saga' everyone is talking about (Please. I don't need to say what it is, right?)

Information is about the new director, possible Mia (who is she? :P), and crystallises the fact that a movie is going to happen! *squee*

Tweets by Gayle Forman:
: Dakota Fanning in talks for supernatural project 'If I Stay' -
Dakota Fanning is in talks for 'If I Stay.' Is it the right career move?  
Yes, Dakota's in talks for Mia. And yes, we have a new director, a very cool sounding one. . Yippie!

The Tour

So this is a double-whammy for Gayle Forman. :) I love her too much; there can never be enough Gayle Forman.

For all of you who don't know, Where She Went (pictured left), is the sequel to If I Stay. If you do not know that, haven't read IIS, please stop reading and go out and read it!!

Anyway, I'll just get on with it. Holly at Good Golly Miss Molly is hosting an ARC tour for it!! This really got me excited, since it's going to be a while before it releases. I'm so glad that Holly opened this up for the international readers and bloggers, or just those who are not on Dutton's good side. If people keep on commenting expressing their interest, it's very possible that Holly will have a second ARC in the future. ;) There are already 10+ participants, but list yourself down anyway, because luck may be on your side!
