I’m thrilled to be a stop on the blog tour for Cesya MaRae Cuono’s debut novel, Elemental Reality. The book comes out tomorrow (!!) and is a wonderfully fun story about a girl who learns she’s not who she thinks she is when she discovers that she can control the elements. Check out my review here, and then go buy a copy tomorrow (it’s totally worth owning, plus it will look gorgeous on your shelf). Cesya has also written a great guest post for From A to Z about the trend of YA novels being turned into movies and whether or not she’d like to see Elemental Reality on the big screen, so be sure to check that out below.
I love when books are made into movies. If I read the book, I like seeing if the director saw the same thing I did while reading. I’ve been disappointed a few time when the director’s vision didn’t meet the vision of the author but there were some movies that blew me away. Yes, some veer off the path the author wrote but some help the author’s vision literally come to life. I hope it would inspire kids to read but that can go both ways. Some people don’t like reading and would rather see the story on the big screen instead of imagining it for themselves. I’m one of those people that have to read the book before the movie comes out because I won’t read it after. Reading a book after seeing a movie ruins the aspect of the author’s imagination. Seeing a movie after reading the book enhances (sometimes) that vision. There are some great directors out there who can bring forth the image the author imagined and then there are some that take it in their own direction.
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog, Cesya! I can’t wait until the next installment in the Elemental series.
