Cinder & Ella THE MOVIE!

Say "Movie" for me and win!

Raise your hand if you just read the title to this blog post and squealed a little. That excitement you just felt could happen for real. I need you all to be my fairy godmothers and help me make some Hollywood magic happen. All you have to do is say "movie" for me.

Now there's a way for fans to make their book-to-movie desires known. It's called the IF List. IfList is a website dedicated to telling Hollywood what stories we want made into movies and who we want to star as our favorite characters. I just read today that Colleen Hoover's Ugly Love is now in development thanks to her IfList campaign. (Congrats, Colleen!!! I'm so excited!) Well, guys, if she can do it, we can do it too! I get comments all the time about you guys wanting a Cinder & Ella movie, so lets make it happen!

10 Reasons why Hollywood should make 
Cinder & Ella into a movie:

1. Hello... Brian Oliver! (Duh.)
2. Because the book is awesome sauce.
3. Because Cinderella retellings rock!
4. Because we want to hear Brian Oliver ask us to say "car" for him.
5. Because we want to hear Ella say it for him.
6. Because I'm feeling a little left out.
       The Fault In Our Stars: Movie,  If I Stay: Movie, Cinder & Ella: ....???? It needs a movie!
7. Because Cinderella movies make lots of money! 
    Proof = Disney's Cinderella (And it's bazillion sequels) Not to mention merchandising!
                 Warner Bros' A Cinderella Story (And's its two sequels)
                  Fox's Ever After 
                  And tons of other retellings that I'll let you look up on your own.
8. Because Fairy Tales are so in right now! ( Malificent, Snow White and the Huntsman, Ever After High, Once Upon A Time...even the upcoming Cinderella movie!)
9. Because YA Novel adaptations are so in right now! The Hunger Games, the Giver, If I Stay, The Perks of Being A Wallflower, The Fault In our Stars, the DUFF, Divergent, like ever Nicholas Sparks novel ever written...just to name a few. Seriously, like half the movies released in the last few years were YA adaptations. What's one more?
10. Because the fans want it, and they're about to say so!
