The new Ender's Game film popped into theaters with big names, yet very little fanfare and disappeared just as quietly (usually not a good sign), however last July when I saw the novel with the new cover sitting on the bookstore shelf I went straight to YouTube to find the trailer, which looked amazing! I put what I was reading at the time on hold and decided it was time to dive into one of the most highly recommended books in my backlog.
I get excited when I see popular books get a movie adaptation, especially Sci-Fi and Fantasy novels when they're well done (seven years later and I'm still cringing over the Eragon film, the book deserved better than that). One of my goals is to have at least one of my books hollywood-ized, so it makes me happy to see other authors achieve that milestone. But I'm getting ahead of myself a little bit.
