  • AND I guess they're not even bothering with that third movie?! I've honestly never heard of Hollywood not completing their shit after part 2 of 3.

    • I thought they were going to make it Direct-to-Video? Or is Shailene Whatsherface refusing? Doesn't she have a contract?

        I still think about this book at least once per week, and every time I do it KILLS ME. I just bought it even though I read it from the library and am not sure I can go through reading it again because of feels.

        • I got this on my kindle from the library and couldn't remember at all why I did! Now I know. I'll maybe actually read it now!

          • It's REALLY good, even if you're as sick of books about WW2 as I am. I loved this book so much.

              • I think they'll be GREAT as a tv series! The whole thing was very visual with all the dreamscapes etc etc. I also wonder if they'll be able to streamline it a little! (she's writing an Adam/Ronan romance now I believe, so I wonder if that will be incorporated - bisexual characters on tv!)

                • If y'all are looking for a little escapism right now BECAUSE WHY WOULDN'T YOU BE, I got some recs.


                  YA:

                  In no partick order, except that I just read Alex, Approximately a couple of nights ago and it was super! great!


                  Alex, Approximately
                  Jenn Bennett
                  It's a You've Got Mail revamp but totes different. California, surfing, classic films, and a wackadoo summer job. Smuttier than I expected!

                  The Summer of Jordi Perez (And the Best Burger in Los Angeles)
                  Amy Spalding
                  Also California and a summer job romance, but this time the MC is unapologetically gay and only somewhat unapologetically fat. I didn't enjoy this quite as much as the book above (and the conflict and resolution were sorta weaksauce), but I wanna give it props for being a pretty solid f/f love story. Which there aren't enough of.

                  Starfish
                  Akemi Dawn Bowman
                  I just realized that this one also involved California and a summer job. Huh. This theme was unintentional.
                  https://www.amazon.com/Starfish-Akem...dp/B071R25YVQ/



                  The Lie Tree
                  Frances Hardinge
                  Not California! No summer job! This is historical magical realism (maybe? I can never tell the difference between 'paranormal', 'supernatural' and 'magical realism') set in England.

                  Claudia Gray's Firebird Trilogy
                  Alternate worlds travel! . . . which might actually involve California now that I think about it, but it would be like, an 'alternate' California actually.:

                  NOT YA:


                  A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel
                  Amor Towles
                  I looooved this book:. don't know how to describe it, actually. But it does involve a guy and he's in Moscow and he's a gentleman and California is NEVER mentioned.
                  https://www.amazon.com/Gentleman-Mos.../dp/B01COJUEZ0


                  The Hating Game
                  Sally Thorne
                  AHHHHHHH. This one was a ridic amount of fun. It was basically so much fun it could have been an enemies-to-lovers fanfic (because fanfic is usually more fun). Reminded me of Set It Up . . . and I also kept picturing the characters as JDoh and KBell even though that didn't make a lot of sense, description-wise. It's set in Australia, which is like the California of the rest of the world? (they are going to make a movie of this one . . . and since it's Aussie, maybe they can dig up an unknown Hemsworth for it?)

                  The Kiss Quotient
                  Hoang, Helen
                  (It's smutty! REALLY SMUTTY) but I enjoyed this one without entirely meaning to enjoy it? ALSO CALIFORNIA WHAT IS MY BRAIN TRYING TO TELL ME I DON'T GET IT.

                  I DON'T WANNA MOVE TO CALIFORNIA Y'ALL.
