Countdown to the weekend starts now! (JK, it started Monday morning at 8:00am.)

Here's a round-up of the best, most bookish news the internet has to offer to get you to happy hour.

Book-Related Things

EW revealed the cover for What If It's Us, the forthcoming queer love story from Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera and it's got us all like:

About a quarter of American adults haven't read a book in the past year. Here's a breakdown on those demographics.

No surprise: certain editions of Harry Potter are worth a veritable butt-load of money, as proven by this recent book heist.

Because it's a day that ends in "Y", the internet is mad about something. This time, the new cover of Are You There God, It's Me, Margaret.

Speaking of Bustle, they've got a great article on queer girls being left behind, despite growing LGBTQ+ diversity in YA novels.

YA Onscreen Things

This week on YA Onscreen: Gina Rodruigez is the next Carmen Sandiego (ZOMG), lots of Love, Simon goodness because we're still not over how amazing that movie is, The 100 news, and more!

Melissa Albert's The Hazel Wood is being adapted for film, and we're here for it.

Our girls Daphne and Velma are getting their own direct-to-home-media standalone movie.

!!!ALERT ALERT!!! EW had a Dawson's Creek reunion! And if all of this has you feeling nostalgic, spend your Friday perusing our Dawson's Creek Rewatch posts.

Literally everyone in Robert Downey Jr.'s Voyage of Doctor Doolittle is, like, so famous.

The Crown's got a new Older Prince Philip in Tobias Menzies (apologies to Outlander fans like me who are forever ruined on Tobias).

Kick off your weekend with a couple of trailers! First up, The Darkest Minds movie has a release date for August 3rd.

 

Next up, the trailer for A House With A Clock In Its Walls hits theaters September 21.

 
Social Media Things

Sarah J. Maas got a peek at the script for the A Court of Thorns and Roses movie. (!!!)

 

So, this just landed on my desk (!!!!!!). Link in bio for more details/updates on the movie! Quick heads up: There’s still a long way to go before we see this on the big screen! Constantin and Tempo are the team behind the scenes, and they are working so hard and so passionately to adapt these books and assemble the right group of people to bring it to life. We’re still looking for a director with the perfect vision for this movie, as well as a stellar cast, but I’m already super excited that they brought on the awesome Rachel Hirons to write the screenplay. Fingers crossed!! ������ #acotar #acourtofthornsandroses #acomaf #acourtofmistandfury #acowar #acourtofwingsandruin #acofas #acourtoffrostandstarlight

Miscellaneous Things

Stop what you're doing and read every single word of this Tiffany Haddish GQ interview in which she discusses the night someone bit Beyonce on the face.

BookRiot has a round-up of extremely charming (get it?) Harry Potter cakes!

The definitive Ho-Ranking of every Hamlet character. Tumblr has EVERYTHING GOOD.

This handy chart automatically generates a pitch for your new novel. Unfortch, I wouldn't read my own book.

Rosemary Hallmark's photo About the Author: Rosemary lives in Little Rock, AR with her cute husband and even cuter dog. At 16, she plucked a copy of Sloppy Firsts off the "New Releases" shelf and hasn't stopped reading YA since. (She's still got a soft spot for the swoony, contemporary stuff.) A former magazine editor, she is now a freelance writer, graphic designer, art director and photo stylist. The rest of her time is spent drinking cocktails, renovating her house and laughing at her husband's ridiculous Pretty Little Liars theories.
