Article story:

It's the month of Catching Fire's release! The movie went to the big screen on November 22, 2013. Have you seen it yet? If you have, tell us what you thought about the movie in the comments!
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire racked up a whopping $161 Million in only three days! Worldwide, the spectacular movie was estimated to have earned $307.7 million! Catching Fire has placed 14th among domestic openings of all time! Catching Fire is also the 11th largest worldwide debut ever. Critics and fans have all raved that the movie was amazing and that Jena Malone and Sam Claflin didn't let anyone down with their acting abilities. Ever since the first showing, fans have flocked to see as many showings of the film as they could; causing shows to be sold out even in very small cities!

The movie and future two movies, will both be shot in Georgia, and hearing that there have been sold out shows, this is no surprise! When are you planning to see Catching Fire?

Article 2:

     5 new posters for the Divergent movie have been released! Check them out!
     Christina looks so strong in this poster! Zoe Kravitz (Who plays Christina in the movie) is so beautiful. Although we haven't seen her in much except X-men: First Class and After Earth, Fandom Monthly thinks she is perfectly suited to play Christina. 
     Maggie Q plays Tori in the Divergent movie. Her character is the tattoo artist who originally tells Tris about her "divergence". Most people know Maggie Q from her TV series Nikita where she plays a "kill now, ask later" type of character ; who ironically is very much like Tori . 
     Jai Courtney plays Eric in the Divergent movie. This poster is definitely something you would expect from Eric. The stiff posture with all his tattoos showing to make him look tough. He appears to have only one eyebrow piercing in the movie, while he is supposed to have piercings everywhere according to the book. That will be definitely one of the differences in the book that is not in the movie. 

     Max, who is played by Mekhi Phifer. Although perfect for his role, he's hardly in the Divergent book. Unless, they have rewritten some bits to include him. Most of you probably don't know Mekhi Phifer. We have found out that Mekhi Phifer is a director, actor and rapper. His better known roles include: 8 mile, and Dawn Of The Dead and Honey. We're sure he will be perfect for the role. 

     Best for last! Miles Teller, who plays Peter! He's such a special actor. He's so unique and he has that dark thing about him that will be perfect for Peter! His poster shows him with a tattoo! That is one change that is in the movie that was never in the book! Miles looks so different in this poster. It is very dark and strong unlike Project X.

There is also new divergent footage! Check it out below!

This month is Divergent month alright! Here is the new "official" movie poster for Divergent! How do you like it? Tell us in the comments!

Article 5:

This month, the YA lit fanatics got a wee bit closer to the release of Book 2 of The 5th Wave Trilogy: The Infinite Sea, written by The New York Times Bestselling author Rick Yancey! Hurry up and check out the official blurb!

 If you have not read the first book in this new trilogy, Fandom Monthly highly recommends that you do! Rick Yancey is a very talented author and winner of many prestigious writing awards. His writing style is just fantastic!

If you have not read The 5th Wave, or heard of its futuristic dystopian world, here's a brief. A girl, named Cassie, is trying to elude an alien force that seeks to rid the earth of humans, which they have labeled "the others." Throughout the invasion, Cassie struggles to find a way to reunite with her brother.

The 5th Wave: The Infinite Sea will be released on May 7, 2014, with a total of 388 tantalizing pages.
The Infinite Sea Blurb:


Took out half a million people.


Put that number to shame.


Lasted a little longer. Twelve weeks. Four billion dead.


You can't trust that people are still people.

No one knows.
But it's coming.

For Cassie Sullivan and the rest of Earth's remaining human survivors, the situation was already desperate when the 5th Wave hit. It's about to get worse.
No one yet knows the depths to which Earth's conquerors - the others - will not sink in order to rid the Earth of the human infestation, nor have they guessed the heights to which the human spirit can reach. Characters introduced in Book One will come to the fore - and others will face the ultimate test.
