Booking Through Thursday: Movie Potential

Tami inspired this week’s question:

What book do you think should be made into a movie? And do you have any suggestions for the producers?

Or, What book do you think should NEVER be made into a movie?

This one is hard for me because I'm always thinking that the current book I'm reading, whatever it is, would make a good movie!

Most recently, I thought Elantris would be good. It has it all. Exciting moments. Sweet moments. Unusual romantic chemistry moments. Political intrigue. Etc.

I think James Dashner's 13th Reality books would be great movies because there's lots of "edge of your seat" moments.

And for some good teen drama and angst, with much humor thrown in... something like Paper Towns by John Green. Hey, did you know he's writing the screen play for that right now? Yep.

However, the book I most recently read that I think would be the best movie ever is The Hunger Games! Wow... talk about an intense movie that would be! I'm quite sure this one will be a movie some day.

I have no idea on producers or directors. Actors would be fun to ponder on, but that would take me all day.

And as for a book that should NOT be made into a movie... the only one I can think of is A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. Ha!

Speaking of movies, I watched The Seeker a weekend or so ago, the movie based on The Dark is Rising, and yes, you are all right. It pretty much had nothing to do with the book except a couple of the same characters and that the kid was looking for some signs in order to stop The Dark. Everything else was quite different and didn't resemble the book at all. Whatever.


  1. Ooh, Hunger Games would make an excellent movie! I also think Life as We Knew It would make a great movie - scary, but great!

  2. I agree, Life As We Knew It would make a great movie too.

  3. I haven't read any of those...yet.

  4. Wait, they made a movie about the YA books The Dark is Rising??? I haven't read those in 15 years, but I still think about them and I'm still afraid of crows/ravens.
