Links for a Friday

Here's what I've been enjoying on the ol' internet lately...

Three YA series that should not be made into films: has posted an article explaining why Veronica Roth's Divergent, Laini Taylor's The Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book might be better off remaining in book form only. I enjoy the content of this piece, but I've gotta say, the best part is the Twilight gif.

And speaking of books-to-film, here is a list of Publisher's Weekly's 10 Most Anticipated Literary Film Adaptations: Ender's Game! Gah! (And if you're wondering where Gatsby is, see the note at the top of the page.)

A chastisement of the guy who created highly sexualized female versions of your favorite Avengers dudes: Also on, the writer takes to task JoshWMC, the artist behind "Lady Avengers" fan art. While I appreicate the graphic skills it took to create such characters, I too am disappointed by the standard sexy representation. Even Black Widow didn't bare her midriff.

The Cairo International Book Fair: What's the trajectory for this long-running book fair in the wake of Arab Spring?

A Literary Tour of Historical YA: Check out The Atlantic Wire's handy list of YA books set in historical eras.

Architectural art made out of books: Amazing, if you can get past the pain of seeing books sliced apart.

Conspiracy theories about classic literary characters: This is fun. What do you think? I'm going to pretend I didn't see the Harry Potter one.

Children are awesome: Just to make you smile.
