Patrick Ness’s Fantasy Novel to be Adapted for Cinema This Year…

Patrick Ness’s fantasy novel will be released in movie form this year. The children’s book centers around a boy whose mother has terminal cancer, and a storytelling monster. The film adaptation has a slew of big names attached, including actors Liam Neeson, Felicity Jones, and Sigourney Weaver, so if you haven’t read this one yet, better pick up a copy in time for the October premiere.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

An unflinching, darkly funny, and deeply moving story of a boy, his seriously ill mother, and an unexpected monstrous visitor.

At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting– he’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. It’s ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth. From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd– whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself– Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss, and monsters both real and imagined.

Bran Stark in season 6 of Game of Thrones

Bran sat out season five, as his character was holed up learning to master his ability to control animals’ minds.

The British teenager plays the paralyzed son of Ned and Catelyn Stark, who is able to transport himself into the minds of animals to control them.

Bran was last seen in the season four finale, when he met the Three-Eyed Raven, played by Max von Sydow in the new season.

There’s so much to look forward in the year 2016 and one of those is a new show titled “Shadowhunters based on the popular book series by Cassandra Clare.” With its premiere date nearing, the show isn’t wasting any time in capturing the audience’s attention through teasers and spoilers.

When her mother is attacked and kidnapped, Clary must join the other Shadowhunters she’s discovered to learn the ways of Shadowhunters and save her mother from the evil Valentine Morgenstern.

Shadowhunters premieres January 12, 2016 on FreeForm (formerly ABC Family).
