Life As We Knew It: Life As We Knew It Series, Book 1 by Susan Beth Pfeffer I guess I always felt even if the world came to an end, McDonald's still would be open. High school sophomore Miranda's disbelief turns to fear in a split second when an asteroid knocks the moon closer to Earth, the way "one marble hits another." The result is catastrophic. Told in a year's worth of journal entries, this heart-pounding story chronicles Miranda's struggle.

The Magicians by Lev Grossman: high school senior Quentin Coldwater assumes that magic isn't real, until he finds himself admitted to a very secretive and exclusive college of magic in upstate New York. There he indulges in joys of college-friendship, love, sex, and booze- and receives a rigorous education in modern sorcery. After graduation, he and his friends stumble upon a secret that sets them on a remarkable journey that may just fulfill Quentin's yearning.
The Magicians by Lev Grossman. It's a cross between Harry Potter, the Chronicles of Narnia, and every other classic fantasy series (and includes allusions to all). However, it is an adult book and includes some graphic scenes that the typical Harry Potter fan may not be keen on.

Ender's Game, I loved this book & can't wait to see the movie and see if they can come close to what I envisioned. Article says 7 movies that show scifi is back. Only 3 look promising to me.
Ender's Game is an American science fiction action film based on the novel of the same name by Orson Scott Card. Directed and written by Gavin Hood, the film stars Asa Butterfield as Andrew Ender Wiggin, an unusually gifted child who is sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future alien invasion. The cast also includes Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Aramis Knight, Hailee Steinfeld, Jimmy Pinchak, Viola Davis, and Abigail Breslin.
Ender's Game is one of my all-time favorite Sci Fi stories, along with Speaker for the Dead. I look forward to this movie!
