TFIOS: Coming To A Theater Near You… In 2014

nerdfighters rules Hello Fellow BookNerds

Time sure passes by startlingly quickly when all you do is read textbooks, write essays, study for tests and try and squeeze a bit of social time in between it all… and by social time I of course mean catching up on episodes of Supernatural and Agents of Shield so I can have Facebook conversations with my friends without having to fear those dastardly spoilers. But alas, it was all worth it, for now I have an entire week I can spend at home relaxing with my family, catching up on sleep, and…. okay, I’m a bad liar. The reality is that I’ll be buried neck deep in textbooks, papers and pen ink as I struggle to catch up on those readings I so nonchalantly pushed aside throughout the semester, and studying for the tests I get to look forward to when I get back. As hard as I try to convince my friends that I enjoy school, I won’t deny that there are certain aspects of the post secondary education process that I could do without… but that’s enough rambling on my part.

For all of you John Green and TFIOS fans, here is a recent update on the impending movie release of The Fault in Our Stars. According to a recent article published in Entertainment Weekly, the movie is set to hit theaters on June 6th, 2014. They have completed their filming in Pittsburgh, and judging by the recent Vlogbrother video updates, John Green could not be any more excited. Below is a recent Vlogbrothers video where John Green participates in a Q & A session with actors Ansel Elgort and Mike Birbiglia.

The cast has grown to include quite a number of talented faces, some of which have appeared on the big screen before.

It’s still hard to believe sometimes that this book, written by a man who a couple years ago I had never even heard of, is going to come to life on the big screen in less than a year! It just goes to show that if there is something that you feel passionate about, then you should just go ahead and do it, because you never know where that passion might take you.

That’s all for today. I’ll try and be a little more active in the blogsphere during my reading week, although given my workload I can’t go making any guarantees. This does not prevent all of you lovely followers from posting any comments, questions or concerns you may have, or taking advantage of my “Book Recommendations from You” page by offering up some of your favourite reads.

Cheers,

BookNerd
