#Giveaway: The Book Thief (BluRay)

SOME OF OUR FAVORITE YOUNG ADULT NOVELS TURNED INTO MOVIES

To celebrate the March 11th Blu-ray and DVD release of The Book Thief, the film adaptation of Markus Zusak’s bestselling novel starring Sophie Nelisse and Geoffrey Rush, we’re taking a look at some of the best young adult literature that has made the move to the silver screen in recent years.


The mother of all young adult book franchises also became one of the highest-earning movie franchises in history. The films have grossed over $7.7 billion worldwide and launched the careers of young acting phenoms Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe.


America’s reigning sweetheart, Jennifer Lawrence, was already an Oscar-nominee before landing the coveted role of Katniss Everdeen in the adaptation of the outrageously popular book trilogy by Suzanne Collins, but the film’s success made her an international superstar.


It’s hard to imagine a world where teens didn’t erupt in fits of excitement at the mere mention of Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner, but before the 2008 adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s tale of supernatural young love hit theaters, both were relatively unknown.


The first two novels in Rick Riordan’s series, The Lightning Thief and Sea of Monsters have been made into highly successful adventure films, blending elements of classical mythology and the modern world. In they process, they introduced the world to superb young leading man Logan Lerman, who also starred in the big screen adaptation of young adult classic The Perks of Being a Wallflower.


All eyes are on the first film from Veronica Roth’s popular book series, as it heads to theaters in 2014, with high expectations for it to be the next big teen phenomenon. The film stars young ingĂ©nue Shailene Woodley (who previously has starred in “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” and The Descendants) alongside Oscar-winner Kate Winslet.


See the pages of TheBook Thief come to life when it heads to Blu-ray and DVD on March 11th!

AND NOW THE GIVEAWAY
Based on the beloved best-selling book comes this profoundly moving story of a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany.

Ultimately, the power of words helps Liesel and Max (Ben Schnetzer), a Jew hiding in the family's home, escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey).

It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.

There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
