Trailer Talk: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

I recently realized that I somehow never got around to watching the official trailer that was released for the film adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. I remember reading and loving the first book (don’t worry, I’ll get around to the others eventually!) and particularly liked the use of old, odd photographs in the book’s pages. To be able to see the entire book visually will be awesome.

Judging by the trailer, the film certainly will be exciting. I’m still unsure of how close it will match up to the book. I mean, I read it a long time ago, but even I saw the trailer and wondered where the heck they’d gotten some of those scenes from. Still, as long as it’s done well and they justify what they’ve had to take away, I don’t really care how much they add to it.

Check out the trailer below and let me know what your thoughts are on it. Are you excited? Disappointed? Indifferent? I’m feeling the urge to re-read book one and then marathon the other books as well.

“A Monster Calls” is becoming a movie???

Apparently I’ve been living under a rock, because not only is A Monster Calls becoming a movie, the trailer for it came out over a month ago.

Yes, so apparently I missed it, even though this is one of the best children’s/young adult books I’ve ever read, written by one of my favorite authors EVER. Apparently he also wrote the screenplay for the film, so that makes me doubly excited! I was actually fortunate enough to meet him at BookCon last year and he is incredibly nice, too. So basically everything about this is going to be perfect.

I mean, Liam Neeson is in it. This book gave me so many emotions and just judging from this trailer, I feel like the movie is going to capitalize on that, too. Click the video below to watch for yourself and let me know what your thoughts are. Are you as excited as I am?? I can’t wait to see this.
