‘City of Bones’ to the big screen! While the world has been focusing on the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games; behind the scenes, another film adaptation was taking place – that of Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones, the first title in the bestselling Mortal Instruments series. Though the rights for the series have already been purchased by Screen Gems, in the hopes of transforming it into a film franchise, and the screenplay has been penned by Jessica Postigo, one thing remains before the movie can cross over to the production stages…casting the main character – Clary Fray. Hollywood Crush.

The world’s biggest book Books come in all shapes and sizes; but perhaps none come close to the dimensions of Australian publisher Gordon Cheers’ Atlas, which tops the charts with its six-by-nine foot frame. The book, which was unveiled at Frankfurt’s Book Fair on Wednesday, October 6, 2010, was rejected by two publishers – Penguin and Random House – wherein Cheers worked for a time; before Cheers made the decision to create his own publishing house in order to see the volume go to print. The book is available for purchase for $100,000.00. Yahoo! News.

‘Twilight’ hand model wants a role in ‘Breaking Dawn’ Kimbra Hickley never thought one of her photographs would cause such a stir; but the parts model, who typically displays her feet in pictures, did just that via Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling Twilight. The ghost white hands holding a bright red apple on the cover of the first book in the series belong to Hickley; who now wants recognition for her photograph in the form of a small role in the next film Breaking Dawn.

Over to you…who would you most like to see take on the role of Clary Fray? What are your thoughts on a book of such a large size – yay or nay? Would you ever pay $100,000.00 for a book? What do you think of Kimbra Hickley’s request? Do you think Hickley’s request should be granted? In general, how much do you feel a cover influences whether you will or will not read the book?
