Its Time For Follow Friday Blog Hop - Meet other booky friends

If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, Rachel of Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read.


Q. What book that hasn't been turned into a movie (yet) would you most like to see make it to the big screen, and who would you like cast as your favorite character?

A. Finally a question that I can't use either Twilight or Harry Potter as answers!

Part of me doesn't want to see any of my favorite books made into movies. Because with rare exceptions, the movie screws up the essence of the book. But there is always something enticing about seeing something you live portrayed visually.

Books I'd love to see made in movies:

If I Stay by Gayle Forman (Plus Where She Went): Don't know who I'd cast. Originally, this book was tied to Catherine Hardwick, the director of the first book. It's what initially led me to read the book.

Greyfriar by Clay and Susan Griffith: I'd love to see the Vampire Empire series made into films. They're dark and romantic. Could be an incredible movie. Or a really bad one.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: I think this would make as good a TV show as it would a movie.

If I think of more, I'll edit this post and add them.


  1. I would love an If I Stay movie, too! No clue who I'd cast either...hmm!

  2. I feel the same as well about books to movies. Although I do enjoy some of them. The worst adaptation was Blood and Chocolate! I adored that book but the movie was nothing like it at all!

    Looking at them separately though the movie wasn't too bad. Weird I know!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

    My FF: FollowFriday

  4. Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm following you back. ^.^


  5. The Greyfriar would make a great movie but in general I'm with you, I'd rather Hollywood didn't touch my books. They never turn out to be any good.

  6. I LOVED this question! Thanks for hosting. Happy Friday!

  7. If I Stay is a great choice! Thanks for stopping by my blog, following back. :)

  8. Great answers! Harry Potter in particular seems to be may answer to everything as well!
    I noticed you're following my blog, and because my blog is new I wanted my URL to somewhat match my blog name, it has "00" at the end which sucks but this is the new blog :)
