Avalon High


I know, posting on a Sunday - this is something I haven't done in ages. But I am just so excited that I can't help myself. I have to post!

What am I so excited about, you may ask?

Well, I was updating myself this morning by reading Meg Cabot's blog (this is VERY important reading material, guys), and I discovered a few things that I am sure I am very late to the game discovering.

One of these things is that she has a new series coming out in the spring (or the winter?) (and I STILL haven't read Insatiable or Runaway - I have REALLY got to get on that). I can't remember what it's called (maybe she didn't say, or maybe it's called Abandon), but it's totally going to be awesome.

I also learned that the Mediator series is being turned into a movie - I've only read the first one, so I guess I've got to get on that, too.

But what I learned that exited me SO MUCH has to do with Avalon High. I loved the book Avalon High, and when I learned that it was being turned into a Disney movie, I was of course thrilled. But now I am even more thrilled because:

That's a still from the Avalon High movie.

That's a picture from one of my present favorite TV shows, Life Unexpected.

Notice how the blonde girl in both pictures is THE SAME GIRL!!!! Who, through Life, Unexpected, I have come to ADORE! Seriously, I LOVE Brittany Robertson. As Lux in Life, Unexpected - seriously. She is absolutely amazing. And now she is going to be Ellie/Allie in Avalon High, and I really couldn't be more excited. I just hope that, when it finally does come out, my sister will Tevo it for me and be willing to keep it there for about a year so that I can actually see it.

So anyway, yes, I am psyched.
And now I have a huge test tomorrow for which I must study, so that is all.

Life Unexpected is such a cute show, and she's a great actress! I'm excited now, too! :)

Why have I not heard of Avalon High? Maybe you should post about your love of it to enlighten me! *grins cheekily* Hope the test goes well.

I love Life Unexpected. It is a brilliant show- casted well and the script is superb. However, I was thrown for a loop with the gay guy from Dawson's creek at first but he is a hottie!=)

As for Avalon High- I have not read the books but I adore the shows set with that kind of premise so I will have to watch the movie.
Oh, I did read Insatiable and enjoyed it!=0

Thx for sharing the news!=)
