Shadow and Bone fans, GREAT NEWS!!! Leigh Bardugo's bestseller just got picked up by Dreamworks to be made into a movie!!

Check out the trailer for Shadow and Bone here:
Shadow and Bone is the first installment in Bardugo’s planned “Grisha Trilogy,” so DreamWorks could have a whole series on its hands if the film ends up finding an audience!
The entire series on the big screen? HOW GREAT WOULD THAT BE??

Only two weeks to Comic Con! Shadow and Bone fans will be delighted to know that Leigh Bardugo will be in attendance, and she'll be there with some limited-edition Shadow and Bone nail polish to hand out. She will be there on Sunday, July 15, from noon to 1 pm. Only one hour for Leigh Bardugo? Unfair! I'm sure people will have far more questions than one hour will grant. Oh well.
Will you be going to Comic Con in San Diego? And if so, will you be seeing Leigh Bardugo? Comment below and let us know!
