If I Only Stuck to My Drunken Plans...
I have been seeing City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte everywhere lately and I cannot wait to get my hands on the book (release date November 27th). Check out the funny trailer here. Turns out Magnus Flyte is actually a pseudonym for first time collaborators Meg Howrey and Christina Lynch.
The inception and evolution of City of Dark Magic is a cool story unto itself. The authors bandied about the idea over wine while on vacation and next thing you know they are e-mailing chapters to each other and a novel was born! Read more here on HuffPo.
Cracked is Like Crack
I'm not sure if you have ever checked out Cracked.com, but if you haven't, be prepared to spend a good three hours surfing the site. They are known for their humorous takes on pop culture and I love digging through their lists. For your book-loving pleasure, I've found (through numerous hours of hilarious research, you're welcome) a few bookish articles that just might make you LOL.
When You Wish Upon a Star...
Looks like we are one step closer to a live action version of Pinocchio making it to the big screen, Tim Burton and Robert Downey Jr. have already been attached (sign me up!), but helping to seal the deal is the addtion of screenwriter, Jane Goldman. Goldman is known for excellent page to screen adaptations such as Stardust, Kick Ass (collaborating with Matthew Vaughn) as well as X Men: First Class and The Woman in Black.
