Fangirl Friday: Throne of Glass TV Show + Catcher in The Rye Movie!

Another week has gone by and and it's time to enjoy another weekend! Unless you live in the midwest here in the U.S. where all we're getting is tons of rain, wind and more rain! It's also that time where all of my college classes decide to schedule their exams next week. Thanks professors! Truly appreciate it!

Let's just focus on the fact that Throne of Glass will be a TV Show on Hulu! Not gonna lie, I truly wish it was on Netflix, I just don't feel like paying more each month for another movie streaming service but I might just have to this time. Although.... THIS IS REALLY EXCITING NEWS! The show will most likely be called Queen of Shadows. According to every online news source outlet online, the Marc Gordon company will be the ones to provide the studio for the show. Kira Snyder will be writing the adaption. She is known for The 100. Anna Foerster will end up directing the TV show pilot! Can't wait to hear more news about this!

Ever read Catcher In The Rye by J.D Salinger in High School? I have and I DID NOT enjoy it. Holden Caulfield got on my nerves the entire time and I never want to hear the word "phonie" again for the rest of my life. I'm sorry for those who like this book but I just don't like it.

Apparently there's a movie! Read the description below! The movie will be released on October 14 of this year.

Coming Through The Rye
Rated: PG-13
Summary: 1969 Jamie Schwartz, obsessed with Holden Caulfield, runs away from boarding school to find reclusive author JD Salinger. Inspired by actual events, Jamie's search for Salinger becomes a journey into sexual awakening, love and loss.

Yay! Even more books have been released! All of these has been released on September 13, 2016.

Title: Dark Horses
Author: Cecily Von Ziegesar
Synopsis: From the internationally bestselling author of Gossip Girl comes a dark, psychologically complex update of Black Beauty replete with jealousy, romance, mystery, and redemption.

Merritt Wenner has been self-destructing ever since the tragic deaths of her grandmother and her horse, and after an epic all-night bender she walks out of the SAT and disappears. Her parents, looking for a quick fix, ship her off to a residential equine therapy program.

At Good Fences, Merritt meets Red—a failed racehorse and a terror in the barn. Red has never bonded with anyone, but Merritt is not afraid of him, which makes all the difference. Soon they’re sneaking rides after curfew, which catches the attention of Red’s owner. Recognizing their potential, he funds their launch into the competitive hunter/jumper circuit.

Against the cutthroat backdrop of competitive riding, Merritt and their groom, Beatrice, develop an attraction. Merritt also finds herself drawn to Carvin, a rival rider. But in Red’s mind, Merritt belongs to him alone. Anyone else poses a threat. And Merritt can’t foresee what he’ll do to keep her to himself.

Title: Watched
Author: Marina Budhos
Synopsis: Marina Budhos’s extraordinary and timely novel examines what it’s like to grow up under surveillance, something many Americans experience and most Muslim Americans know

Naeem is far from the “model teen.” Moving fast in his immigrant neighborhood in Queens is the only way he can outrun the eyes of his hardworking Bangladeshi parents and their gossipy neighbors. Even worse, they’re not the only ones watching. Cameras on poles. Mosques infiltrated. Everyone knows: Be careful what you say and who you say it to. Anyone might be a watcher.

Naeem thinks he can charm his way through anything, until his mistakes catch up with him and the cops offer a dark deal. Naeem sees a way to be a hero—a protector—like the guys in his brother’s comic books. Yet what is a hero? What is a traitor? And where does Naeem belong?

Acclaimed author Marina Budhos delivers a riveting story that’s as vivid and involving as today’s headlines.

Title: Girl on a Plane
Author: Miriam Moss
Synopsis: Jordan, 1970.

After a summer spent with her family, fifteen-year-old Anna is travelling back to her English boarding school alone. But her plane never makes it home.

Anna’s flight is hijacked by Palestinian guerillas. They land the plane in the Jordanian desert, switch off the engines and issue their demands. If these are not met within three days, they will blow up the plane, killing all the hostages.

The heat on board becomes unbearable; food and water supplies dwindle. Anna begins to face the possibility she may never see her family again.

Time is running out . . .

Based on true events, this is a story about ordinary people facing agonizing horror, of courage and resilience.
