All blogging and bookish post ideas I had for today are off. You know why? I had no absolute bloody idea that If I Stay was being made into a movie. I LOVE If I Stay. You hear me? LOVE. I get tears every time I think about it.
And I am just. Ah. I can’t believe it. I can’t believe I didn’t hear about it till now.
SO I HAVE TO SHARE! EVERYTHING!
But first, a brief history of my relationship with If I Stay.
I was browsing one of those cheapy book stores where all the reject books are left, just looking for something I might be remotely interested in. Spotting a bright, $3 dollar tag, I pick up a book with a plain looking girl on the front with an extremely vague blurb. Skinny, with a little black mark on the spine. I decide to buy it, giving it the benefit of the doubt. I had no idea how amazing it was or the fandom or a clue about the hype.
That was nearly three years ago, before I joined Goodreads or discovered this world of books. Back when I was just a simple reader. Before I followed hypes or felt a pressure to read.
This book has stayed with me throughout. This cheapy reject with the simple cover earned it’s spot of adoration on my shelf. It’s no longer just plain, but worn in and loved with stained pages. And even though I’m now here and have been exposed to all sorts of books, it has not lost it’s special place.
A lot of you guys have probably already seen it, but I don’t care. Just ’cause I was late for the train doesn’t mean I can’t share!
I absolutely love who’s been casted for Mia! She is exactly how I imagined. Adam but? Hmm. Not at first. He needs to look cooler. But by the end of this trailer he made me a believer. He’s perfect.
Will they be making the movie to Where She Went, as well? Because that would be a dream come true. Really.
What do you guys think of the trailer? Raise your hands if you cried! To those that have read the book, do you think the casting is right?
