Hello everybody! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted updates on any news relating to books, and with the things I have today, I decided it’s finally time to do an all-round book news post! I have a lot of different types of things to share with you all today, so let’s get on with it! ❤
‘Shadowhunters’ TV Show
So, a lot has been going on for this tv show in the making since my last update on it. We have been getting tons of promo pictures, videos and more—but now we also have a full 1 minute and 3o second teaser trailer! Check it out below:
Overall, I think it’s really good! A lot of it seems to be different from the book, but it has potential. I did especially like the glimpse of Jace’s personality in Dominic Sherwood! And I think Katherine McNamara seems to be doing a good job as Clary. 🙂 So excited for the show!
There has also been a promo teaser trailer clip released–unfortunately I couldn’t see it since it apparently couldn’t be viewed in my country , but here it is!
We have several new castings to add to the ever-growing Shadowhunter crew! Introducing:
Now we have our complete Lightwood family! Yay! Max is totally adorable, even if he’s not exactly how I imagined him, and I’m liking the casting for Maryse as well. I’m not sure about what I think about the casting for Robert, but I guess it could work?
We also have some other castings:
‘Lydia Branwell‘ is an original character created for the show, who apparently will be a descendant of Charlotte and Henry Branwell in The Infernal Devices. I don’t know how exactly it will play out, but the actress sure looks stunning!
As for the casting of Imogen Herondale, she’s not exactly how I imagined, but I think maybe she has what it takes to pull it off? Maybe. And the casting for Ragnor Fell seems to be okay. I don’t even know if Ragnor will be having a big role in the show, so even if I didn’t like him, it would be bearable.
That’s it, as far as I know! Feel free to check out my thoughts on the casting of: Jace, Simon and Isabelle, Clary, Alec and Luke, Valentine and Magnus, Jocelyn Fray, and Hodge Starkweather if you haven’t already! Or if you simply want to check out all the castings so far (apart from the ones mentioned in this post of course), press here.
I have two covers recently revealed that I want to share! First and foremost, the cover for Lady Midnight has been released!! Here it is, in all its glory:
I think it looks super cool, though there does seem to be something about it that is nagging at my brain which I can’t seem to put my finger on… I like it, but I don’t know if I fully do. Does that make sense? In any case, this book is slated for a March 8 2016 release, I believe? I honestly can’t wait!
As for the other cover news I wanted to share…this one I first found out about through Cristina @ My Tiny Obsessions:
Yep, the cover for The Rose and the Dagger has been revealed! I absolutely loved The Wrath and the Dawn—review here—and after the cliffhanger in that book, I simply am dying to read the sequel!
As for what I think of The Rose and the Dagger’s cover; well, the blue might be kind of hard to get used to, and at first I was pretty skeptical that I’d like it, but I think it will probably grow on me sooner or later. 🙂
The trailer for a new book-to-movie adaptation (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith) was released today! Check it out below:
I haven’t read the book, although I had considered it several times. So I’m not quite sure what to expect from the film, but it seems intriguing!
On another note, the second official trailer of Mockingjay Part 2 was released 3 days ago! Here it is:
I am more excited than ever for this to be released!! I can’t wait to watch it!
And last but not least, although this is nowhere near current news, a while ago the trailer for The Fifth Wave (by Rick Yancey), another book-to-movie adaptation in the making, was released!
I definitely hope it will turn out good! I’m pretty good with the cast right now, though I’m interested in seeing how they’ll handle the many POVs in the book.
So that’s it for my book news post! I hope I helped with giving you at least some new updates on something. 😉 What do you think of all these; the Shadowhunters TV show trailer, the new castings, the cover reveals, the movie trailers? Let me know your thoughts below! I’d love to know what you think. ❤
I hope you guys are all enjoying your weekend!
