    I need to order Everything, Everything. It sounds so good! …You know, once I finish the other nine books I’m reading. Haha.

  • They also announced that Before I Fall (by Lauren Oliver) is being turned into a movie! SUPER excited about that.

  • Sonya Byrd

    I just picked up Everything, Everything. I’ve only heard good things.

  • Throne of Glass has been optioned for TV!! Sarah posted about it on Twitter this week 🙂 🙂

  • AnneBennett

    Thanks for all this news. I didn’t know that The Sky is Everywhere is optioned for a movie. I am not surprised about EVERYTHING EVERYTHING.

  • I am so excited about The Sky Is Everywhere. I loved that one! It wasn’t as good as I’ll Give You The Sun, but it is still pretty awesome.
