YA Onscreen Things

ICYMI, this week on YA Onscreen: A Veronica Mars revival, Crazy Rich Asians gets a sequel, and Jenny Han talks about the sheer ridiculousness she faced while shopping To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before around.

In our continued efforts to be a Peter Kavinsky/TATBILB blog (You did read Rosemary’s Your New Fake Boyfriend: Noah Centineo post yesterday, right?):

"Why Peter Kavinsky is a new kind of rom-com dreamboat."

"Netflix’s newest rom-com To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is bringing out a radical softness in its audience."

What’s your fave Peter Kavinsky moment? This Buzzfeed quiz will guess.

Lara Jean’s lock screen photo was an ACTUAL PHOTO of Lana and Noah that a crew member took while they were ACTUALLY NAPPING in the green room. WE ARE DEAD.

Here’s the story behind the "Yellow" cover in Crazy Rich Asians.

Anthony Michael Hall has joined Riverdale for a flashback episode. (He’ll play the high school principal when the Riverdale parents were in school.)

Thomas Mann (Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl) has joined the Lady and the Tramp live-action movie.

Netflix has picked up the live-action/CGI hybrid Mowgli.

There’s a Monument Valley movie in the works. (If you haven’t played this game, you should!)

Social Media Things

HRH Dolly Parton, y'all.

 

 

 
Miscellaneous Things

The New York Public Library is lending out accessories to people who need them for job interviews.

Kelly Marie Tran breaks her Internet silence; is a Hero.

Another quiz: Which library section are you most like? (I got YA Fiction, natch.)

Bringing it all full circle, in additional Keanu news: The Destination Wedding press tour has given us the delightful realization that Keanu and Winona Ryder might have been married for the past 25 years and the even more delightful knowledge that he used to write her letters and she journaled about him.


Feel free to add your fave distractions of the week in the comments!

Mandy Curtis's photo About the Author: Mandy is a small town girl living in a nerdy world, or—if you want to get literal—an editor/writer living in Austin, TX. In addition to yearning for YA books—the more dystopian or fantastical, the better—she can also be found swooning over superheroes, dreaming of The Doctor and grinning at GIFs.
