Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway‘s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.
We’d love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link – or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.
This Week’s Topic: The Veronica Mars Kickstarter success makes us wonder, what YA book would you raise $2 million to see a movie version of?
I’ve been wanting to see a film adaptation of Libba Bray’s A Great and Terrible Beauty since I first read it in high school. (Side note: has this book really been around that long now?! [The interrobang really needs to be a thing.]) I know a lot of people probably think period films are stuffy and boring (albeit pleasing to look at), but I have a feeling this wouldn’t be a typically ‘boring and stuffy’ period piece – our heroine, Gemma Doyle, would see to that, with her constant rebelling and snarky commentary. This wouldn’t be terribly different from a typical teen movie, really, except everyone is running around in corsets and there’s evil magic threatening to destroy the world.
And okay, fine, I also wouldn’t mind staring at Kartik for two hours.
