The Hazel Wood (which I didn’t like and found problematic sighs) is being turned into a movie. I really don’t know how feel about this but I hope it goes well.

I know that some of the reason I found it problematic is how I interpreted the book. It seemed really obvious to me but some people just didn’t see the book like that at all, so hope the movies like that?? idk I am confused

Link is here!

Megan Spooner is doing a gender-bent Robin Hood retelling and how exciting!? It’s called Sherwood and this is the cover!! It looks like the Hunted cover (which i still haven’t read oops, but I’m so excited!

    1. I hope they find really great actors because I honestly don’t know who would play any of them haha. I do know people want toni mahfud to be casted as Rhys and honestly I can kind of see that although he isn’t an actor.

  1. A lot of exciting news! I don’t know how I feel about ACOTAR being turned into a movie…usually with book to movie adaptations, I try to see them as two separate forms of entertainment, so it doesn’t bother me TOO much when they change things, but I swear the movies/shows always end up sucking anyways lol. (except for Love, Simon which I absolutely loved!)

  2. I really liked Hunted so Sherwood is going right on my list! Thanks for the news. My feelings about Solo are crazy mixed as a long-term fan but I will say that for the first time in this last preview there were bits were I could finally see it. (Mostly when he was talking to Chewie.)

    1. Ooh I’m glad! I really want to read some of Meagan Spooner’s books! I’ve heard a lot of mixed thoughts on the movie too and I’m still quite a new fan so I can’t judge much, but I’m glad you can see it a bit!

  3. There’s so many exciting news here! I’m super excited that ACOTAR is becoming a movie, I just hope this means the other two will become movies too, cause that would be the dream. I loved Hunted, so I’m really happy to see she’s doing another retelling and a gender bent Robin Hood??? That’s so cool! And there’s a witch in Mulan now! That’s awesome! I have so much enthusiasm about everything in this post 😂
