Everyone put on your party pants, set off some glitter bombs and get ready to make your best, high-pitched squealing sounds—because "Daughter of Smoke and Bone," one of our top teen lit picks for 2011 (and my own personal faaaavorite favorite thing I've read this year!) has been officially picked up by Hollywood! The rights to Laini Taylor's amazing, imaginative story about a mysterious girl, an otherworldly romance and demons who traffic in teeth has been bought by Universal Pictures, according to a statement from the studio.
And now we all go: EEEEEEEEE!!!
Of course, this only just happened, which means that we'll have to wait way too long to get any updates on when the movie will start filming or which actors are in the running to play our favorite key characters. But it's never too early to start throwing opinions around! So, while Hollywood starts its engine to bring this book to life on screen, we'll be lounging on our casting couch with a few favorite picks for Karou—the blue-haired, multilingual, tattooed heroine who makes the whole story go BOOM.
