Book-to-Film: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

From BBTV:

Yale graduate, Leigh Bardugo’s smash debut novel has been picked up to be adapted by DreamWorks. But what’s seemed to have fans buzzing like crazy is that Harry Potter producer, David Heyman, is on board to produce.  It’s still really early in the movie process to know when/if this movie will ever happen, but this story, about about an orphan girl whose ability to harness a rare magic makes her one of her nation’s most coveted warriors, is bound fill the hearts of Potter fans alike.

As a huge fan of this series, and as an even bigger Potter fan, I really hope this one happens.  If done right, it could be SO AWESOME.  *crosses fingers.*

Also, in case you haven't seen it, the cover for the final book in this trilogy, Rise and Ruin, was released this past week!  I first decided to read this book solely on how lovely the cover was, and I'm so glad I did!  The inside is just as good as the outside.  I was really looking forward to this cover reveal, and it did not disappoint!   Here it is, in all its lovely glory:


  1. Oh, I am SO EXCITED! I really hope this one happens, too. I just jumped on the Harry Potter bandwagon, having only read book one last week... but I really enjoyed the movies! And this series is one of my all-time faves. I did not know the movie rights had been acquired already! SO EXCITING!!!! Can you just imagine what the Shadow Fold could look like!?! And the opulent costumes!? Honestly, if Twilight gets a movie than Shadow and Bone MUST get one. Thanks for sharing this info!

    1. I know, right?!? If done well, it could be AMAZING. It might be worth making the movie just to see the costumes. Fingers crossed that this one really happens.
      I'm excited for you to read the Potter series! I know everyone loves it, but it really is worth the love. Looking forward to hearing what you think of the books as you go along.
