I adore Simon’s books and i’ve never been quiet about that online, or in person, basically i talk about Simon and his books an awful lot! When i found out that he was releasing a new YA novel that wasn’t in the Noah world, i was incredibly excited and had high hopes to see what his new characters would be like away from Noah, Harry and the old gang.

Why Films Can Be As Good As (Or Better) Than Books

chatI feel like there is often quite a bit of snobbery surrounding adaptations. There’s a constant thought of the book always being better than the film, often said before the film has even been released. I’ve felt like this for a long, long time and many aspects of the idea annoy me a bit!
