Recently, I discovered one of my favorite books of all time – “The True Meaning of Smekday,” by Adam Rex
– is being adapted into a movie! It’s going to be an animated film called “Happy Smekday!” by Dreamworks, starring Rihanna and Jim Parsons as the voices of the two main characters, to be released in 2014. I’m EXTREMELY excited for the movie! The book is deliciously wacky and unique in terms of the characters, premise, and humor. Which makes me a little bit worried, because what if the studio changes some of it?! My precious book!
I’m sure everyone has experienced this to some extent – either fretting about a movie-to-be, or going to go see a movie adaptation of a book and finding out it isn’t everything you wished for. I don’t know if anyone else saw the movie Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, but it was not what I was hoping for, especially since I loved the book. Share your fanboy or fangirl book-to-movie adaptation woes below!

The League of Fonts
THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League?
