Not everyone is getting tired of YA, but a lot of people are. Me included, and I'm right in the target audience :P (Of course, there is totally room for Uglies, but that's a bit different in my case.)

No, I'm not being sarcastic. It's actually true, and I really truly want it as a movie more than a show, though I can understand why Westerfeld did this, from my other post of "TV Show + Reasons Why".
Thanks, Straif.

There's room for Mortal Engines too...I think it would be more appropriate to say we're tired of MAINSTREAM YA stuff.

Yeah, it's nice to see something different.
after reading Mortal Engines it's hard to go back to reading stuff like uglies because the world of and characters Mortal Engines is so different and so well developed.

same with I am The Messenger and the book thief.

I liked it. I'll just give you a link to the summary, I'm bad at describing plots.

Any more news on his final (or advanced, as it says on the article) stage of the show?
Does anyone think there will still be a movie with it?
When is anything gonna come out onto the screen, big or small?!

 If there was solid news it would be on Westerfeld's blog and there's nothing there.

Again, probably waiting till the Divergent/Hunger Games/Maze Runner teen apoc novel puke-wave that's washing over Hollywood right now dies down...

Dunno if I wanna see it or not.
Still waiting for a movie of the same genera that wasn't a book first. And has at least one scene of air strikes.
