Have you ever finished a book (or book series) and wished you could read it for the first time again? Or at least just have a few more moments with your favorite characters? Well, keep reading, because I might have the solution for you.
Ladies and gentlemen, I am excited to announce that baseball season has finally returned!
On the last day of BookExpo online, we were gifted with some young adult books to look forward to! 5 authors and their publishers discussed their new YA books coming out in the next coming months.
Slow Dancing, a Wattpad story, is on its way to having a series adaptation. The story written by Noelle or hepburnettes has gained an amazing amount of reads since its release, 9.6 million in fact. Producers Arron Levitz and Eric Lehram who worked on Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board, a Hulu show which was also adapted from a Wattpad story, are set to produce this new series in collaboration with Mediacorp.
Slow Dancing is about a twenty-year-old woman who is tasked to help her long-time crush after he has a serious car accident that leaves him temporarily blinded. However, the task is nowhere near easy because Isla, the main character has to pretend to be Kaden’s (her crush’s) girlfriend because she didn’t make it. Yeah, intense. The first twenty chapters are available to read for free, but the rest of the story has to be paid for, so you will have to acquire coins in exchange for the rest of the chapters.

As a genuine fan of Wattpad as a platform, I hope this works out well. A past adaption from Wattpad like After was a mess in my opinion but Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board is okay. There is some serious talent on the website and it’s an amazing opportunity to have their works made into television and film. The only hope is that the end result is good.

Sometimes she writes for adults and sometimes she writes for teenagers, but Rainbow Rowell has been capturing the spotlight with works like Carry On, Eleanor & Park, Fangirl and Attachments for some years now, and that’s not all. Just in time for fall, Rainbow Rowell is prepping for the release of her new graphic novel, Pumpkinheads!
Pumpkinheads is about two high school co-workers, Deja and Josiah, who work together every fall season at the local pumpkin patch, it’s their senior year and soon they will have to say their final goodbyes. However, instead of just letting their last season just wash over them like regular, Deja is determined to make it the best memories they’ve had and also help Josiah finally speaking to the girl he’s been having a crush on. Through their interactions together, we can only hope that we will see the beginning of their relationship and the development of what is now.
