Next Book Club – May 24, 2:00pm PST

Originally posted on Anna Shinoda:

We’ll be discussing How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff on Friday, May 24th at 2pm PST in my Ustream Chat: . If you are in a different time zone and need a little help figuring out when 2pm PST is for you, check out this magical site.

I know it’s a bit time before our next meeting, but I wanted to give everyone who wants to participate the chance to get the book and read it.  That, and  I have a very busy May, so I need time to re-read the book myself!

Hope to chat with you there!

How I Live Now – Next Book Club

Originally posted on Anna Shinoda:

It’s midnight here in California, so I’ve closed the poll for voting for the next book club selection.  How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff barely beat The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne.  So for our next book club we’ll read How I Live Now, and the book club after that we will read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.

Thanks for voting and happy reading!

AMC Planning The Walking Dead Movie, Anna Shinoda To Write Script


After the finale of The Walking Dead’s third season yesterday, Robert Kirkman has told MTV that a movie of the successful series is being prepared now. The movie will be a prequel to the third season and tell the story of the Governor’s life after the zombie apocalypse (as told in Kirkman’s novel “The Walking Dead”).

In a surprising move, Paramount Pictures has hired up and coming Young Adult novelist Anna Shinoda to write the script of the movie.
Shinoda spilled the beans in a blog post shortly after Kirkman’s announcement:
“I’m very excited to take on this challenge and I want to thank Robert for trusting me with this.”
Insiders claim that Shinoda has ordered a special PG rated version of the series, because she is allergic to violent images.

According to AMC, they are currently talking to different directors, such as Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese and Michael Bay, but a final decision has yet to be made.


The Art of Parenting: Stepparents and their Stepkids

I just found this great article about Stepparents and their stepchildren on Huffington Post. Kudos to all the stepparents who work extra hard to take care of their loved one’s children – in some cases even more than some “real” parents.
What are your experiences with your stepchildren or stepparents? Feel free to share them in the comment section!

Here’s an extract of the article:

Every stepparent remembers the moment they finally earned their stepkids’ seal of approval. It’s a meaningful moment — as any stepparent can tell you, a stepchild’s trust can be hard won, sometimes taking years and years to gain.

On Friday, Redditor Jedi_Hog shared his shiningest moment as a stepparent — in meme form. Take a look here:


The stepdad’s success story won over Reddit, with fellow stepparents and stepkids weighing in with their personal stories in the comments.
