The past month has been crazy. I had to write two full books and revise another. As soon as that was over, I had to start in judging entries for RWA's annual RITA contest. So, as you can imagine, I haven't had time to read any YA books since before Christmas. However, that doesn't mean I don't have fun stuff to share from the world of YA. I did receive my copy of Beth Revis's A Million Suns, the sequel the awesome Across the Universe. So as soon as my RITA judging is over, I'm totally diving into that. Watch for that review in an upcoming edition of The Teen Menu.
We are only about a month and a half away from the premiere of The Hunger Games in theaters. Some friends and I are planning to see it together, and I can't wait! Everything I see about it looks awesome, including a new trailer and a cool behind-the-scenes look at the cover shoot with the cast for The Hollywood Reporter. And here's a cool Entertainment Weekly photo from right before Cinna lights Katniss and Peeta's costumes on fire, leading to Katniss becoming known as "The Girl Who Was On Fire". And Movie Web has some new photos from the movie.
Tomorrow is the release day for the DVD and Blu-Ray of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1.
