  You Are Never Too Old For a Great Book - It is a well-known fact that we here at Steph's Stacks are huge fans of the YA genre. Some YA books are merely good, but many are great and transcend the genre.

Kirkus has compiled a list of 10 Teen Books Adults Shouldn't Resist including the S.S. Required Reading: The Fault in Our Stars and Legend. If you are looking for your next great read, this list is the place to start!
Adapt This Book!
Entertainment Weekly lists 7 Books That Would Make Great TV Shows including Stephen King's The Stand, as well as Battle Royale and Dangerous Liasons. I am a huge fan of book to screen adaptations, so if they can do it well, then I'm all in! 


Gone Girl Finding Its Way to the Big Screen!

Another Steph's Stacks Fave from 2012, Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl is in talks for a movie adaptation. David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, The Social Network) is being tapped to direct the adaptation being produced by Reese Witherspoon's production company.

Rumors have abounded the Witherspoon is also starring, but as it stands now, she will use her star power behind the scenes.

Pride and Prejudice 200th Anniversary - Jan 28th, 2013
In honor of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, here are a few Austen related news tidbits just for you!

Austenland premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this past week. The quirky movie (produced by Stephenie Meyer - yes, that one) is based on Shannon Hale's novel of the same name and tells the story of a young woman obsessed with Colin Firth's portrayal of Mr.Darcy (in the BBC's famous adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice).

Two clips from the indie adaptation (starring Keri Russell) were just released for your viewing pleasure. Austenland should be in theatres later this year.

Here a few Pride and Prejudice pretties for you courtesy of Real Simple.
