Thorne is her grandmotherand that Iris has to deal with the trilogy's crazy fans.When Iris gets dropped in Ireland for the movie adaptation, she sees her opportunity: if she can shut down production, the Elementia craze won't grow any bigger, and she can finally have a normal life. Not even the rascally-cute actor Eamon O'Brien can get in her way.But the crew's passion is contagious, and as Iris begins to find herself in the very world she has avoided her whole life, she realizes that this movie might just be amazing...

Now a Major Motion Picture Reviews
“Everyone else got to read Elementia and discover something about the world or themselves. Not me. I’d read her story and began drowning in a loss I’d never known was mine.”
Now A Major Motion Picture was a really fun reading experience about fandom, family, and finding yourself. We follow Iris Thorne as she and her little brother Ryder go to Ireland to see the filming of the grandmother’s beloved fantasy series, Elementia. Iris is no fantasy fan and there’s no live list for the rabid fandom ...more
I just really, really loved this.
There's just something about this book. There have been a slew of contemps that center around a fantasy story, and sometimes it ends in abject failure, but sometimes, it succeeds in spades like this book. I absolutely loved it.
Iris, our main character, is a flawed protagonist. She's angry at the her father, her brother, the world at large. Her grandmother wrote a fantasy epic trilogy that everyone has read except her, and her brother's one wish is to see the filming of it in Ireland. Thus, star ...more
I don't even know where to begin with this book, simply because it was just THAT GOOD. Now A Major Motion Picture by Cori McCarthy is technically a contemporary, but the plot centers around a fantasy novel becoming a film. Iris Thorne's grandmother is famous for writing a series of high-fantasy novels called Elementia. Now, Elementia is being made into a film, and Iris and her father aren't too pleased. See, Elementia is what tore their family apart, after a crazed fan tried to kidnap Iris's lit ...more
"Say that the book is a sculpture. You can walk around the story. You can touch it. You can view it up close or far away. That is why people love books. The stories interact with your memories, your experiences. They're personalized. Movies? Movies are a picture of that same statue. The parameters are set. The characters have defined faces. The scenes artistically rendered to one person's vision."
This was so much fun and adorable :)
I admit I found out about this way late, because I am terrible ...more
Thank you, Sourcebooks Fire, for giving me an e-galley of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I'd read her story and began drowning in a loss I'd never known was mine. My grandmother was a brilliant author—and I'd never read her books.
Now a Major Motion Picture is marketed as something that fans of Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl will enjoy. It's been a few years since I read the latter book, but I can say that the blurb is true to an extent. NAMMP, like Fangirl, features excerpts from a complet ...more
I don't want it to be over! It was just so cute, so wonderful! Review to come.
Loved this so much!!
