In today’s edition of the ‘Amusements and Distractions’ weekly round-up on the Killings blog, Jessica Alice included a link to the news that Jennifer Lawrence is likely to play Agnes Magnusdottir in the film adaptation of Hannah Kent’s absolutely brilliant Burial Rites.

Burial Rites is easily the best book I’ve read this year, and in a long while. I’ve ranted about my love for it before. I’m pretty keen on Jennifer Lawrence, too – with the exception of the ridiculous Silver Linings Playbook. She danced like a cutie though. 

Anywho, I can see her in the role, and I’m fairly stoked to hear Burial Rites will be turned into a film. It’s happy news, and it needed sharing.
