Randomly Booked: Books into Movies

I was filming a movie for a college project the last two days. Its a very intense process and sometimes its fun. As I was thinking about what to write I thought about talking about books that were made into movies. There are so many books that are made into movies especially in the last few years.

Most of the adapted books that I watch are fantasy. Filming those movies is so hard because normally there are creatures that need to be inserted through animation and if there is flying it needs to look real. So everyone knows about the blue and green screens that one needs to film in front. But there is a lot more that needs to be done. The actors have to be convincing about whats happening when actually nothing really happens next to them.

The hardest part …

All YA Love: Guest Post on Fate by Irene Latham

It is our pleasure to have with us today Irene Latham, author of ‘LEAVING GEE’S BEND’.Fate, destiny, serendipity… whatever you want to call it, YES, I’m a believer.  I even wrote and published a poem once entitled “Creed,” which proclaimed, among other things, “I believe in serendipity,/ coincidence, random/ accidents that defy explanation/ because there is no explaining pain/ or the lack of it.”  And when I think about how I came to write LEAVING GEE’S BEND, I see all sorts of fateful occurrences, as if this story was inside me all along, waiting for me to finally get to a …

Geekdom of Books: Amigurumi

Today’s post is a bit book unrelated but it soooo cute I just couldn’t not blog about it. 

Amigurumi are little sweet crotched puppets and as always I searched for some more geeky ones and I found a few very cute ones. I tried to make some of them on my own and I have to admit my crafting skills aren’t high enough for crocheting. Man the oney I made look weird to say it nice. More reason for me to admire those who can make these gorgeous Amigurumi.

And before I forget it: Happy belated Pi Day!!!! (Pi Men found here)

The first one is all abot the Lord of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien and i just love them. One the right you can see Gandalf. I love the tiny pipe. You can take a look at the rest of the characters here.

Guest Post: Author Shiloh Walker


I’m trying to figure out when I started listening to music as I wrote, because you know, I didn’t always.

Even as short as eighteen months, two years ago, I’d have the TV on and just block it out. Then I had to start focusing more and I realized something—I didn’t block out the TV as much as I’d liked to think and I was wasting precious writing time (come to think of it, I probably waste a lot of time now on twitter…hmmm). Anyway. I had to focus more because I’d recently signed a contract with a new publisher and my workload had pretty much doubled. So TV off.
But the house was too quiet.
I’ve got kids. The house is never quiet. When they are at school, I’ve always had the TV going and now without the TV, the house was so …

Geekdom of Books: Staying Up-to-Date

Thanks to the wonderful pattepoilue I discovered a new wonderful way to keep on track with all the series I read. I already tried Shelfari and LibraryThing and discovered  that I’m more a Goodreads gal myself.
But although I use Goodreads daily I sometimes forgot that a new book in one of loved series came out and I nearly got a stroke when I noticed. So now we have this new site: fictfact.com

What is so great about it?
You can search the database for author, book title or series name and it list all the books in this series, even the soon to be released ones. You can now click on follow this series and fictfact will remind you of the new releases in this series. Sounds easy to me.

Okay I admit it was totally annoying to put all the series I read in there but those 30 minutes …
