Now a Major Motion Picture Reviews
I see why they compare this to Fangirl, but the story itself isn't the same.
Iris is the granddaughter of a famous but deceased fantasy writer whose story is being filmed into a movie picture. She wasn't close to her grandmother and the last thing she and her family wants is more attention, which once culminated in her little brother being almost kidnapped by a crazy fan. Still, she slowly begins to understand what everyone's passion for her family's legacy is about and begins to love it hers ...more
Thank you, Sourcebooks Fire, for giving me an e-galley of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I'd read her story and began drowning in a loss I'd never known was mine. My grandmother was a brilliant author—and I'd never read her books.
Now a Major Motion Picture is marketed as something that fans of Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl will enjoy. It's been a few years since I read the latter book, but I can say that the blurb is true to an extent. NAMMP, like Fangirl, features excerpts from a complet ...more
I kind of feel like this book was meant for me. Except for the part where the main character hates fantasy fandoms. I don't know if this book is for everyone but if you like love stories, strong female characters, and fantasy fandoms then this should probably be on your to-read pile. Yup, I added another one. I love you, too.
I just really, really loved this.
Everybody has their go to slump-killing genre. Mine just so happens to be nerdy contemporary romance.
I'll admit, this book wasn't even on my radar at first. I was looking through Netgalley, a little bored of all of the fantasy books I read, and I saw this and I was happy because it seemed like it was just what I needed (it was.)
It was not hard to get myself into this book - and never want to leave. The character growth, the humor, the love of fictional worlds, everything worked together in such ...more
Now a Major Motion Picture is perfect for fans of Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl. Both novels have an inner fantasy novel the stories are centered around. And after finishing Now a Major Motion Picture, I can saw that I hope Elementia is published like Rainbow Rowell did with Carry On.
Iris Thorne has grown up in a “double shadow”. She’s grown up in the shadow of her father, who has grown up in the shadow of her famous grandmother, author of Elementia, the female-power response to The Lord of the Ring ...more
What I expected: fun, contemporary YA romance that takes place in Ireland on the set of a film.
What I got: all that, plus a lot of heart, soul-searching, humor, diversity, and critical thinking.
I received an advanced copy from the publisher via Netgalley for review consideration.
I don't even know where to begin with this book, simply because it was just THAT GOOD. Now A Major Motion Picture by Cori McCarthy is technically a contemporary, but the plot centers around a fantasy novel becoming a film. Iris Thorne's grandmother is famous for writing a series of high-fantasy novels called Elementia. Now, Elementia is being made into a film, and Iris and her father aren't too pleased. See, Elementia is what tore their family apart, after a crazed fan tried to kidnap Iris's lit ...more
