Most Anticipated: The Great 2014 Book Preview

The Millions published their always excellent preview for 2014 while I was on vacation, so just linking to it now. Looks like a great year.

 The “YA dystopia for teenage girls” genre has come full circle and is sinking its teeth into 1984. Equals will be a “slightly updated version” of George Orwell‘s dystopian classic, with the main update being, according to its director, that “it’s about love in a world where love really doesn’t exist anymore.” Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are starring.

Slightly. Never mind that the title is already different.

Very cool.
