You may have heard of the book Juliet by Anne Fortier. Here’s what the book is about…
Twenty-five-year-old Julie Jacobs is heartbroken over the death of her beloved Aunt Rose. But the shock goes even deeper when she learns that the woman who has been like a mother to her has left her entire estate to Julie’s twin sister. The only thing Julie receives is a key—one carried by her mother on the day she herself died—to a safety-deposit box in Siena, Italy.
This key sends Julie on a journey that will change her life forever—a journey into the troubled past of her ancestor Giulietta Tolomei. In 1340, still reeling from the slaughter of her parents, Giulietta was smuggled into Siena, where she met a young man named Romeo. Their ill-fated love turned medieval Siena upside-down and went on to inspire generations of poets and artists, the story reaching its pinnacle in Shakespeare’s famous tragedy. Continue Reading…
I have to credit the folks over at WetPaint for finding this . . . and it kinda made my day. Alaric Saltzman does the Harlem Shake. I can’t stop giggling.
Just FYI: Insurgence 5 is, essentially, a Con held in Birmingham, England.
Bella Thorne is currently in South Africa shooting a movie with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. Yet the Disney starlet has already signed on for a new Romeo and Juliet film. It’s a retelling of the classic love story.
CoExistence is a modern day version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet set in Northern California’s Napa Valley. Bella will play Juliet Cabochen, a young girl who is set to marry a successful wine mogul. But Juliet is determined to change her fate and marry her love Romeo! Romeo will be played by young actor Nick Krause. And wait there’s more! Juliet is described as a ‘skilled martial artist….and seems to fly effortlessly through the air. She is eventually revealed to be more than human.’
Ok, I am a little freaked out by the “more than human” comment. Cause if she turns out to be an angel or something – ya. I am not all for a supernatural Juliet.
Is it weird that what excites me today is that Gayle Foreman met with If I Stay director RJ Cutler to talk all things movie. I have waited years for the possibility of seeing this movie on the silver screen. Can not wait!
Who do you think would make a good Adam? We’ll have to put together a list!
As you may or may not know, Executive Producer Julie Plec takes a lot of the tweets she gets to heart. And some of them have hurt (shame on you, whoever’s sending those), but she felt the need to return fire at fans demanding that she bring beloved Original brother Kol back. First she tweeted this (and she needed TwitLonger to do it):
Apparently, that wasn’t quite enough, though. A fan tweeted Julie a Venn Diagram she’d come up with, explaining why bringing back Kol just couldn’t come back. In case she needed a “visual aid” for those still not getting it.
Here’s the tweet:

And here’s the diagram up close:
If there’s a better way to prove that Kol coming back would a) just not make sense and b) be a total sell out to on-line bullys (in essence) I can’t think of one.
As much as I hate the idea of Kol only coming back in flashbacks, I agree that his story has been told.
May he Rest in Peace.
I’ll just be in the corner . . . mourning.
