Book to movie news:
~ Jamie Ford’s Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet has been optioned for a film. This work of historical fiction stands out as one of my favorite reads of the year.
~ Kathy at Bermudaonion has posted the trailer for the film version of Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. I’m really excited for this film, even though I wasn’t crazy about the Robert Pattinson casting. I’m trying to reserve judgment until I see it.
