Waiting on Wednesday

Today I'm trying out my first "Waiting on Wednesday", please don't be too harsh. Today the topic I want to discuss is not a new book I'm looking forward to but an upcoming book to movie adaptation. These are more common now and every book lover is always anxious for the movie and to see how much it was ruined (or not ruined, some are great!).  What I'm looking forward to is Vampire Academy, coming into theaters this Valentine's Day!

I read this book soooo long ago, that I have the original cover. I loved this book and I'm currently re-reading it and falling in love all over again! I've missed Rose's witty lines, her relationship with Lissa and I'm so excited to see it translated to the big screen. There are so many reasons I'm excited and I feel this lists does a good job at explaining my top 3 reasons I think it's going to be awesome!

1. The Cast
I'm in love with this cast! I think the casting team did an amazing job! They all look just as I imagined and they even got a Russian actor to play Dimitri, brilliant! I know they will all do an amazing job.

2. The plot
While re-reading Vampire Academy I have picked up on many important events I'm excited to see brought to life. There are so many important points to make and I'm excited to see how it is done. Not to mention seeing all the relationships between the characters, Rose's witty lines, and who could forget the lust charm scene...

3. The advertising/promotion

I know a lot of fans of the book are upset with the way the film is being promoted. I was originally skeptical but realized what a smart bunch of people we had working on the films. If the film had been promoted as a paranormal/romance/action movie, new crowds would not take it seriously as seen it recent flops with The Host and Beautiful Creatures. By playing off the comedic side of the film and making fun of the film they are bringing in a new audience. Of course we know the whole movie is not funny (despite Rose's killer humor) but also amazing and serious. The new people watching the film will then realize how epic this series is. This is why I have total faith in the people working on this film!

Wow, that was a long rant! Anyway, I think the lesson we all learned today is that they suck at school. And that the Vampire Academy movie is going to be awesome and I can't wait to see it in theaters! (most likely more than once)

Until next time fellow readers, don't hesitate
