"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green



is being turned into a movie!!!!!!

I was just flipping through trailers on Youtube, when I stumbled upon the trailer for the movie based on the book I Am Number Four by Pitticus Lore (a pseudonym for James Frey (who I despise) and Jobie Hughes (who I now nothing about)).

I've been wanting to read this book for awhile, but haven't gotten a copy yet.  But now that I've seen the trailer for it, my excitement has been pushed up even more.  Here's the synopsis from Goodreads:
In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorian. Nine aliens who scattered on Earth. Nine aliens who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives, but who have extraordinary, paranormal skills. Nine aliens who might be sitting next to you now.

The Nine had to separate and go into hiding. The Mogadorian caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. All of them were killed. John Smith, of Paradise, Ohio, is Number Four. He knows that he is next.

I AM NUMBER FOUR is the thrilling launch of a series about an exceptional group of teens as they struggle to outrun their past, discover their future—and live a normal life on Earth.

Sounds pretty awesome.  A good mix of sci-fi and adventure, two of my favorite genres!

If you haven't read the book yet, watch the trailer below.  From what little I've read of the book and from friends of mine who own it, they think that the movie will follow the main plot pretty closly!
