Waiting on Wednesday(75):All Rights Reserved & The Loneliest Girl in the Universe

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from  Breaking the Spine and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for..

Title:The Loneliest Girl in the Universe
Author: Lauren James
Release Date:September 7th 2017
Publisher: Walker Books

Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never met, never even spoken to – someone who is light years away?

Romy Silvers is the only surviving crew-member of a spaceship travelling to a new planet, on a mission to establish a second home for humanity amongst the stars. Alone in space, she is the loneliest girl in the universe until she hears about a new ship which has launched from Earth – with a single passenger on board. A boy called J.

Their only communication with each other is via email – and due to the distance between them, their messages take months to transmit across space. And yet Romy finds herself falling in love.

But what does Romy really know about J? And what do the mysterious messages which have started arriving from Earth really mean?

Sometimes, there’s something worse than being alone . . .

 Title: All Rights Reserved
Author: Gregory Scott Katsoulis
Release Date:August 29 2017
Publisher:  Harlequin Teen

In a world where every word and gesture is copyrighted, patented or trademarked, one girl elects to remain silent rather than pay to speak, and her defiant and unexpected silence threatens to unravel the very fabric of society.

Speth Jime is anxious to deliver her Last Day speech and celebrate her transition into adulthood. The moment she turns fifteen, Speth must pay for every word she speaks ("Sorry" is a flat ten dollars and a legal admission of guilt), for every nod ($0.99/sec), for every scream ($0.99/sec) and even every gesture of affection. She's been raised to know the consequences of falling into debt, and can't begin to imagine the pain of having her eyes shocked for speaking words that she's unable to afford.

But when Speth's friend Beecher commits suicide rather than work off his family's crippling debt, she can't express her shock and dismay without breaking her Last Day contract and sending her family into Collection. Backed into a corner, Speth finds a loophole: rather than read her speechrather than say anything at allshe closes her mouth and vows never to speak again. Speth's unexpected defiance of tradition sparks a media frenzy, inspiring others to follow in her footsteps, and threatens to destroy her, her family and the entire city around them.

So that's what we're waiting on this Wednesday.
 So how about you? Leave a link and let me know. :)

YA Book to Movie Adaptions

So lately there has been so many Ya book to movie adaptions!! I am absolutely here for it.I love it when my fave YA books can come to life on the big screen.I'm also a huge fan when YA books I've never heard of graces the big screen because that just give me an excuse to check out a book I've never heard of before.

A few ya book to movie adaptions that are already out or coming out are The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas ,Dumpling by Julie Murphy Everything,Everything by Nicola Yoon ,Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli Hearing about this book to movie adaption made me want to put together a wishlist of sorts of books I think would make awesome movies.So here ya  go.Hope you enjoy!!

Title:Dear Martin
Author: Nic Stone

Justyce McAllister is top of his class, captain of the debate team, and set for the Ivy League next year—but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. He is eventually released without charges (or an apology), but the incident has Justyce spooked. Despite leaving his rough neighborhood, he can’t seem to escape the scorn of his former peers or the attitude of his prep school classmates. The only exception: Sarah Jane, Justyce’s gorgeous—and white—debate partner he wishes he didn’t have a thing for.

Struggling to cope with it all, Justyce starts a journal to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. But do Dr. King’s teachings hold up in the modern world? Justyce isn’t so sure.

Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up. Way up. Much to the fury of the white off-duty cop beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. And Justyce and Manny get caught in the crosshairs. In the media fallout, it’s Justyce who is under attack. The truth of what happened that night—some would kill to know. Justyce is dying to forget.

I think with that along with The Hate You Give this book would shake up the box office and shed some light on topics that you don't see in big budget movie.

 Title:Our Chemical Hearts
Author:Krystal Sutherland
Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a hopeless romantic, but the slo-mo, heart palpitating, can't-eat-can't-sleep kind of love that he's been hoping for just hasn't been in the cards for him—at least not yet. Instead, he's been happy to focus on his grades, on getting into a semi-decent college and finally becoming editor of his school newspaper. Then Grace Town walks into his first period class on the third Tuesday of senior year and he knows everything's about to change.

Grace isn't who Henry pictured as his dream girl—she walks with a cane, wears oversized boys' clothes, and rarely seems to shower. But when Grace and Henry are both chosen to edit the school paper, he quickly finds himself falling for her. It's obvious there's something broken about Grace, but it seems to make her even more beautiful to Henry, and he wants nothing more than to help her put the pieces back together again. And yet, this isn't your average story of boy meets girl. Krystal Sutherland's brilliant debut is equal parts wit and heartbreak, a potent reminder of the bittersweet bliss that is first love.

This would make an excellent movie.I loved reading this book and kinda wish I could see it on the big screen

Title: Into White
Author: Randi Pink
When a black teenager prays to be white and her wish comes true, her journey of self-discovery takes shocking--and often hilarious--twists and turns in this debut that people are sure to talk about.

LaToya Williams lives in Birmingham, Alabama, and attends a mostly white high school. She's so low on the social ladder that even the other black kids disrespect her. Only her older brother, Alex, believes in her. At least, until a higher power answers her only prayer--to be "anything but black." And voila! She wakes up with blond hair, blue eyes, and lily white skin. And then the real fun begins . . .

Randi Pink's debut dares to explore provocative territory. One thing's for sure--people will talk about this book

There is definitely nothing like this book.The book touches on concepts that are relate-able  that not many people speak about and seeing it on the big screen would spotlight these issues and start a conversation.

Title: Tiger Lily
Author:Jodie Lynn Anderson

 Peter Pan belonged to Wendy, he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair...

Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily doesn't believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the alluring teenage Peter Pan in the forbidden woods of Neverland and immediately falls under his spell.

Peter is unlike anyone she's ever known. Impetuous and brave, he both scares and enthralls her. As the leader of the Lost Boys, the most fearsome of Neverland's inhabitants, Peter is an unthinkable match for Tiger Lily. Soon, she is risking everything—her family, her future—to be with him. When she is faced with marriage to a terrible man in her own tribe, she must choose between the life she's always known and running away to an uncertain future with Peter.

With enemies threatening to tear them apart, the lovers seem doomed. But it's the arrival of Wendy Darling, an English girl who's everything Tiger Lily is not, that leads Tiger Lily to discover that the most dangerous enemies can live inside even the most loyal and loving heart.

There are so many Peter Pan movies out there which is great would rock if the ladies like Tiger Lily and Wendy hard their own movie.Tiger Lily would make an awesome movie.

Author:Amanda Hocking

In a world of magical visions and pyrokinesis, Mara just wants to have a normal life. But is that possible?

Mara has become used to the extraordinary. Roaming from place to place with Gideon Davorin’s Traveling Carnival, she longs for an ordinary life where no one has the ability to levitate or predict the future.

She gets her chance when the struggling sideshow sets up camp in the small town of Caudry and she meets a gorgeous local guy named Gabe. But before long, Mara realizes there’s a dark presence lurking in the town that’s threatening the lives of her friends. She has seven days to take control of a power she didn’t know she had in order to save everyone she cares about—and change the future forever.


Gideon Davorin’s Traveling Show has come to town for one reason and one reason only. It’s broke as hell. An offer of a week-long gig with a hefty paycheck has the caravan rolling and ready to give the locals something they won't soon forget . . . . So I love Amanda Hocking and anything she write so when I found out about Freeks I was all over it.Sadly Freeks was a bit underwhelming.I enjoyed Freeks but it definitely wasn't what I was expecting. 

Mara is the main character and as far as main characters go she was great.The characters in Freeks even the secondary characters all shined and had very distinct characterizations. Gabe was Maras love interest and I thought the romance between them was adorable.Not going to lie my heart broke for Gab at the end.The twist surrounding his family was nuts.A part of me hopes Freeks is a standalone but anoter part of me would love a spin off about the other characters that are a part of Gideon Davorin’s Traveling Carnival.

The cover for Freeks is absolutely fucking breathtaking.I love how the girls dress is a part of the big top.Not going to lie besides the fact that Amanda Hocking wrote Freeks the over is also what drew me in and made me want to read the book.This was a fun read, if not a bit cliché ...The ending was meh and a little cool at the same time.I would recommend to anyone a fan of circusesqe book and Amanda Hocking. 2/5
