Follow Friday



Feature and Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer! This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. This weeks question is:

Q: What is one book that you would be nervous to see a movie adaption of because you think the movie could never live up to the book?

I find I'm getting nervous about the adaptation of Beautiful Creatures.  I keep reading more little tidbits about it and nothing I've read so far makes me think Yeh!  For whatever reason, the Beautiful Creatures series has become my absolute favourite, I love everything about it, much more so than City of Bones or Hunger Games, so I have set a very high bar for this movie. 

I think Christinabean's movie adaption could be for Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy, but I'm not absolutely certain there.

    I have only read the first book in the Beautiful Creatures series. I really enjoyed it, I just haven't had a chance to read the others.

    I would love to see the Vampire Academy series turned into movies. I'm not too worried about it. I just hope that if they are turned into movies, that the connection between Dimitri and Rose is not lost on the big screen.

  3. I agree with you about the soon to come 'Beautiful Creatures' movie adaptions. So far what I have heard of it, I am not at all excited to see it made into a movie. Hopefully they don't completely screw it up, even though I don't like the casting choices AT ALL!

    I would rather enjoy seeing the VA series come to a movie screen though. But that's just because I want to be able to drool over a handsome Dimitri and if they messed him up for me I would be Pissed. So I can understand reservations on that as well.

  6. OK, so I just have to say that I finished reading The Gathering and The Calling by Kelley Armstrong and I think I'd like to see this series turned into a movie. ARE YOU LISTENING MOVIE BOOKS TO MOVIE SCOUTS??
