One thing that we’ve learned in life is that when a book is optioned before it even hits shelves, we need to pay attention. And if they book is available for preorder, we need to hop on it so that we are prepared.
It’s even better when it sounds like something we would want to read.
The Bad Luck Bridesmaid: A Novel doesn’t hit shelves until January 2022, but it has been optioned for film already by Working Title.
What’s it about? Well, “The book is not a rom com. You’ve been warned. Ten years, three empire waist dresses, and ZERO brides have walked down the aisle. And when Zoey Marks turns down a proposal from her perfect All-American boyfriend, Rylan Harper III, she and Rylan are both left heartbroken, leaving Zoey to wonder: what is it exactly about tying the knot that makes her want to run in the opposite direction? Enter Hannah Green: Zoey’s best friend, who announces that she’s marrying a guy she just met (cue eye roll) and Zoey will be a bridesmaid. It’ll be fine. Determined to turn her luck around, Zoey accepts her role and vows to get Hannah down the aisle—all the while praying her best friend’s wedded bliss will allow her to embrace marriage and get Rylan back. But as the weekend goes on, Zoey is plagued with more questions than answers. Can you be a free spirit, yet still want a certain future? Can you have love and be loved on your terms?”
Alison Rose Greenberg wrote the book and will also adapt the book for the screen. It is her first novel and it sounds like a good one.
What are your thoughts? Do you think it is a book you would read? A movie you would watch?
