I feel like it's been a Massive (the capital M is extremely necessary) week in the world.

File 16464First there was the Inky Awards shortlist announcement. Voting is now open for all teens to vote! vote! vote for your favourite shortlisted title. Aaaand there's also an Audience Prize to be won.

Melbourne Writers Festival Schools' Program has been on this week. Authors such as Morris Gleitzman, Paul Jennings, Cassandra Golds (this month's Writer In Residence!), and Inky shortlisted authors Simmone Howell and Melissa Keil  - just to name a few - have been part of the festivities.

File 16517Mortal Instruments opened in the cinemas! The movie EVERYONE has been talking about FOREVER. 

Ben Affleck was announced as the next Batman, which shocked everyone. Who saw this coming?

BBC1 are going to make a movie of Roald Dahl's Esio Trot, which makes my little Roald Dahl fan heart squeeeeeeeeeee.

There's going to be a new Romeo & Juliet adaptation (that I somehow completely missed the announcement of! Eep.)

A very creative fellow wrote a children's book as his marriage proposal. Let's all take a moment to stop and say 'awwww cute'.

File 16520

Adorkable.

Aaaand a new Divergent trailer was released. I nearly expired.


Phew! I think that's it.
