Books into Movies: The Host (Teaser Trailer)

The Host (The Host, #1) 
Stephenie Meyers' adult novel The Host is being adapted into a movie. The movie has already been cast and filming has begun! It is set to be released in 2013. The first image and teaser trailer of Saoirse Ronan as Melanie Stryder has been released! Check it out below!

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed. When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind. Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind with visions of the man Melanie loves - Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.

So what do you think? Doesn't it look interesting? I'm a fan of Max Irons after I saw Red Riding Hood and Saoirse Ronan is absolutley amazing. If you've never seen Hanna, I would definitely recommend it! Will you go see this movie? Does it look better than Twilight? Have you read the book? Personally, I haven't but I think I may actually like it better than Twilight. I prefer sci-fi to fantasy :) Thoughts below!


  1. The Host was a fabulous novel! Definitely better than the Twilight Saga. It's such a huge book too! It goes on and on and it's fabulous from start to finish.

    And it's a trilogy! But it's a long coming trilogy, since The Host has been out for a few years, and the sequel hasn't been focused on yet... I think Meyer was hoping for more hype before she put effort into the sequel, but I hope since the movie is coming out next year, the sequel will come out around the same time!

    And oh my gosh, this trailer is such a tease! I like how they used the fan photos in this, although it was kind of obvious if you read the book that they were going to do that. (Add it to your TBR pile, asap!)

    Which magazine are those photos from?? It looks like People, but I can't read the text... I need to get my hands on a copy of it!

    Side note: Hanna is a FABULOUS movie! The music and the fight scenes and the hilarious British family she follows, I love it all!

    1. I've always been curious about this book, but I guess I was just hesitant because Stephenie Meyer wrote it. I enjoyed the first Twilight, but didn't care for the rest of the series.

      I'm actually surprised it's a trilogy because she wrote this sooo long ago! Wow, that's crazy how the sequel isn't even out yet!

      I'm putting the book on my TBR pile now!! Thanks for the recommendation. I do think I will like it better because it's sci-fi and not fantasy.

      The magazine is People. I'm going to add a second image that just came out, so look for the update!

      I'm so glad you saw Hanna!!!! Seriously, it's one of my favorite movies of the year. And both my sister and I made the songs from the movie our ring tones :) Yes, that British family...soooo funny!

      Thanks so much for the awesome comments, Sallie!

  3. I have to say I was not expecting this book to be as good as it was!
    Even though the first 150 pages or so are slightly slow the rest of the book is fast paced and becomes a very interesting read.
    Would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is even slightly interested in it!
