Here's hoping they invest in better CGI than the New Moon producers

We've had a review copy of Maggie Stiefvater's novel Shiver floating around Wordcandy HQ for a few months now*, so I was interested to see that it's been picked up by the producers of the Lord of the Rings movies, who plan to turn it (and, I'm assuming, its sequels) into a feature-length film.

*The book has great cover art, and I keep meaning to read it, but Nathan picked it up and said something about the werewolf hero trying to eat the heroine in the first chapter, which I find totally off-putting. I'm not sure why, seeing as I read vampire books all the time, but being torn apart by wolves just sounds so messy....
