We all have missed Booboo Stewart, right? (Just go with it). Don’t worry Twihards because he’s making his way back to us. Booboo Stewart has been cast as Jafar’s son in the live action movie, Descendant’s. The movie is centered around Disney Villains children.

So what is this movie about?

Descendants is set in a present-day idyllic kingdom, with the benevolent teenage son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle), Ben (Mitchell Hope), poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil (Carlos), Maleficent (Mal, played by Dove Cameron), the Evil Queen (Evvie) and Jafar (Jay, played by Stewart), who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with the other villains, sidekicks, evil stepmothers and stepsisters.

Not gonna lie, I am actually excited about this movie. The movie is being directed by Kenny Ortega (High School Musical Director).

It’s due out Spring 2015.

PANIC by @LaurenOliver: You’ll be reading on the edge of your seat

Panic_HC_JKT_des4.inddToday we’re bringing you our review of Panic by Lauren Oliver. The book was released on March 4, 2014. You can read our exclusive interview with Lauren HERE.

Here’s the synopsis of the book -

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.

Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.

Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he’s sure of it. But what he doesn’t know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.

For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

Lauren Oliver’s recent release Panic is certain to have to reading on the edge of your seat, hands gripped to your book so tightly as you watch the game titled apptly Panic evolve.

After the success of her Delirium series, it goes without saying that Oliver has smashed it yet again. Set in the small scale town of Carp, the teenage residents after graduating school take up a dare devil game. Testing how far you will truly go with your fears. Can you deal with what scares you most? The incentive of a big cash sum brings in the kids every year. It happens under the radar, especially is anything serious happens.

The story focuses on Heather and Dodge’s POV, giving the mix between both genders and more importantly, from different backgrounds. As always, it is astounding how real these characters feel to you. The running theme of fear throughout the book certainly ups and anti, getting crazier as it gets along. Those tasks are certainly not for those who are the light hearted! Suspense, thrills, combatting emotions, teenage hormones and more makes this for a smash hit.

There is a similar reference going around about Panic being like The Hunger Games series and I can assure you although there may be similarities, it’s in a totally different ball park! It isn’t considered a dystopian world either. Not to say if you enjoyed The Hunger Games that you wouldn’t enjoy this too!

…lets just say small town antics are not small. At all.
