I Want to Be a Paperback WINNER!

* Did you see the title of this post as a parody of a Beatles song? If not, I totally wasted all that mental energy on nothing!

On October 16, to celebrate the paperback release of The Future of Us, I asked you to tell me which book you'd like to see made into a movie. I also wanted to know a song you think should make it onto the soundtrack. The randomly selected winner will receive autographed paperback and hardcover copies of the book.

And the signed books go to...

Alexandra Trebek!

Ms. Trebek wants to see John Green's Looking for Alaska made into a movie, and the soundtrack should include the song "She's So Mean" by Matchbox Twenty.

Why "She's So Mean"? According to Ms. Trebek, it's because...

  1. it's such a good song
  2. I think it (the lyrics) describes Alaska. I feel like you can dissect every lyric in this song & relate it back to Alaska. Also, I can totally see the girl in the music video being Alaska.
Great song. Great book. Great combo!

(For those of you who chose songs for a Thirteen Reasons Why movie, I'll pass the selections along to the producers!)

Congrats to Alexandra, but what I really am anticipating for soooooooo badly is any 13 Reasons Why movie news!
