Bookish News Brief!

It's final! Jennifer Lawrence will play Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movie adaptation. I never really heard of this actress but I can see why they would have chosen her. Looking passed the blonde hair, she has potential to look like Katniss. Get her down and dirty and she might just surprise us all. What do you all think of the casting?

Tera Lynn Childs, author of Forgive My Fins, recently released her unpublished chit lit books, Eye Candy and Straight Stalk as e-books. Both Eye Candy and its sequel Straight Stalk are available on the Kindle, Nook and Smashwords.

Alyson Noël, author of the Immortals series, continues her new series about Ever's younger sister, Riley. The book is available now in bookstores, so make sure you run out and buy it!

Summary: Having solved the matter of the Radiant Boy, Riley, Buttercup, and Bodhi are enjoying a well-deserved vacation. When Riley comes across a vicious black dog, against Bodhi's advice, she decides to cross him over. While following the dog, she runs into a young ghost named Rebecca. Despite Rebecca's sweet appearance, Riley soon learns she's not at all what she seems. As the daughter of a former plantation owner, she is furious about being murdered during a slave revolt in 1733. Mired in her own anger, Rebecca is lashing out by keeping the ghosts who died along with her trapped in their worst memories. Can Riley help Rebecca forgive and forget without losing herself to her own nightmarish memories?

So not a fan of the choice. I'm sure she's a fabulous actress, but I think they could've found a fab actress that actually resemebled Katniss. :(

I'm not sure how I feel about the casting, I am sure once they are done getting her ready for the role she'll be great. It is hard to find an actual person who looks the way a reader has pictured him or her and then once a person is cast it is hard to keep your own mental imagine of the character intact.
