If you’ve ever read the acknowledgments at the back of Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, you might have noticed that Stephenie Meyer thanks some fabulous bands for helping inspire her and get her through her writer’s block. On her website, she writes:

I can’t write without music. This, combined with the fact that writing Twilight was a very visual, movie-like experience, prompted me to collect my favorite Twilight songs into a sort of soundtrack for the book. This list is not chiseled in granite; it transforms now and again. But, for the moment, here’s the music I hear in my head while reading the book…”

On StephenieMeyer.com you can find playlists of music that she listened to while writing each of the books. I love that the lists are so much more extensive than the movie soundtrack, with a lot of variety. The best part – click on the tracks to listen some great music by bands such as Muse, Travis, and My Chemical Romance.

hungergamesI just read a post on YPulse that Lionsgate has recently acquired the rights to Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Apparently, Collins will be adapting the book into a screenplay.

The Hunger Games set in a futuristic world where North America has been divided into 12 districts, which must send two boys and girls as tribute to participate in the Hunger Games. They must fight to the death on a televised show in which all citizens are forced to watch.
