After five years of blogging, sometimes it’s hard to come up with new ideas. So much has changed over the years, including my blogging style, many times over, and I’ve gotten so much more into taking photos and posting on Instagram as a part of my love of books and bookish merch!
In an attempt to keep things interesting and fun, I wanted to started a little something new for me where I take a post that I had originally shared on Instagram — or “bookstagram” for those in the book community — and took it a little further in a blog post. There’s a limited number of characters that you can share on Insta and the point of those posts is more to get to the point, rather than writing a whole narrative, but sometimes each post deserves a few extra words, and “As Seen on Instagram” is a fun way for me to do that!
In case you missed the news, Stephanie Perkins recently shared that her latest novel, THERE’S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE, has been picked up by Netflix for production!
The article with the announcement first appeared on Deadline, name-dropping Stranger Things producers & more! It sounds like this is slated to be turned into a movie, which I seriously love! The whole time I was reading the book, I kept picturing it as a 90s slasher movie, so that’s totally on par with the feelings I got from the book.
I’m not sure how far they’ve gotten with negotiations yet but you bet I’ll be follow Stephanie Perkins’ accounts to keep up with the news! I love that it was Netflix who grabbed this one because we’ve seen some amazing things adapted for TV and movies and I’ve been loving the Netflix original series. I feel like sometimes when Hollywood gets involved, as cool as it is to see things in theaters, we tend to lose some of the original story (I mean, you do with any adaption but I’m excited to see what these producers do with it) and I definitely don’t think it has a TV show vibe. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited!
Have you read THERE’S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE? How do you feel about the movie news?
