Follow Friday (5)

Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by two blogs, Alison of Alison Can Read and Rachel of Parajunkee.
It is a weekly meme created to influence community among blogs -- the concept -- I follow you and you follow me. Win, win!

How it works:
-Visit these two great blogs!
-Leave your name on the post.
-Create a post on your own blog that links back to the post (just grab the FF button) visit as many blogs as you can and tell them hello! In their comments.
-Be sure to follow them and if someone follows you follow back!!!!

This week's question:
Q: What book would you love to see made into a movie or television show and do you have actors/actresses in mind to play the main characters?

Oh. Awesome question this week.
I would like to see the following books turned into movies:
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E Smith
Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by
Morgan Matson
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

I think that contemporary novels make for the best potential movies. They are full of so much heart and emotion that a movie could convey the story without losing the audience because of detail.

But...I don't think a movie can ever really replace a book no matter how well done.


  1. I would love to see The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare on the big screen!

  2. Oooh, I love your answers. Before I Fall and Anna and the French Kiss would definitely make fantastic movies. I can totally see them.

  3. True! I don't think movies can really be better than the books. I still like the Harry Potter books better than the movies, but the movies were still really good at giving you a visual! And the pronunciation of several names!!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  5. I haven't read your other choices, but Anna and the French Kiss is one of my picks, too:

    Oh, and I agree, I almost always love the books better than the movie adaptations (Harry Potter, Twilight, Time Traveler's Wife, Beastly etc...)

  6. I have to agree with you. I'd take my book any time over a movie. Here's my FF
