Fever Series picked up by Dreamworks


Did you hear about this yet?!

The rights to the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning have been acquired by Dreamworks!!

Apparently, they are hoping to develop it into a live action film series. Read the article from Variety.

Personally, I was hoping it would be developed it as a live action TELEVISION series. It has all the marks of a good long running show. It has drawn out, potential series long story arcs, shorter subplots, and the potential for a freak-of-the-week type storytelling similar to that of Buffy or Supernatural.

But, either way, I'm happy because we will get to see Barrons and Mac on the screen!!

She's the best magical tattooist in the southeast, a Skindancer, able to bring her amazing tats to life. When a serial killer begins stalking Atlanta's tattooed elite, the police and the Feds seek Dakota's help. Can she find the killer on the dark fringe of the city's Edgeworld?

My Book Boyfriend Marcus Flutie


My Book Boyfriend #2


Megan McCafferty

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush who makes us swoon hosted by Missie from The Unread Reader.

This Book Boyfriend is from The Jessica Darling series and my review of the first book, Sloppy Firsts, should be up soon.

Marcus Flutie is the rocker, drug-reformed poet and love interest of Jessica "Not-So" Darling. In Jessica's words: "His lips are usually curled into a semi-smile, like he’s in on a big joke that’s being played on you but you don’t know it yet." This guy is complicated and he knows it. 

I'm not sure anyone can come close to capturing the pure mystery that is Marcus Flutie, but Garrett Hedlund was who came to mind for me. He is a little old for the part, but hey, if Ian Somerhalder can play a teenager: why can't this guy?

  • tease extraordinaire
  • poet, songwriter, musician
  • six foot tall with long limbs
  • rusty red mess of hair
  • nicknamed Krispy Kreme

Directly below is a poem that Marcus wrote:

"We are Adam and Eve
born out of chaos called creation
Ribbing me gave you life
yet you forget
there will always be
a part of me in you
yes I taunted and tempted
you with my forbidden fruit
does that make me
the serpent too?
Believe what you will
but if I am exiled alone
I know we will be
together again someday
naked without shame in paradise
My thanks to you
for being in on my sin"

And this is part of a song written by Marcus:
You, yes, you, linger inside my heart
The same you who stopped us before we could start
I didn't want to leave, but you began to believe
Your own crocodile lies.

Marcus is the ultimate bad boy. He's philosophical and broody and loves to be a bit of a puzzle. I mean, come one, he wears Backstreet Boys T-shirts just to mess with other people's heads. How can you not love that?

Most high school sports teams have rivalries with other schools. At Hamilton High, it's a civil war: the football team versus the soccer team. And for her part,Lissa is sick of it. Her quarterback boyfriend, Randy, is always ditching her to go pick a fight with the soccer team or to prank their locker room. And on three separate occasions Randy's car has been egged while he and Lissa were inside, making out. She is done competing with a bunch of sweaty boys for her own boyfriend's attention.

Lissa decides to end the rivalry once and for all: She and the other players' girlfriends go on a hookup strike. The boys won't get any action from them until the football and soccer teams make peace. What they don't count on is a new sort of rivalry: an impossible girls-against-boys showdown that hinges on who will cave to their libidos first. And Lissa never sees her own sexual tension with the leader of the boys, Cash Sterling, coming.
