Book Blog Hop


Friday's Book Blog Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy For Books.


This week's question:

"What book(s) would you like to see turned into a movie?"
I am not much of a movie watcher. My friends joke with me that they might see the movie version of something, while I read the book instead. However, I do plan on seeing The Help when it comes out. I doubt it will match my love of the book, but I will still give it a chance. There are times that as I am reading I could envision certain books being turned into movies - usually the fast paced ones that have lots of action in them. I just enjoy the way I imagine things so much more that even if a movie version of a book I loved comes out, it doesn't automatically cause me to want to watch it.
I'm glad I happened to look at Jen's site before going to bed. Today has felt like a very long day, and I am ready to curl up and finish off two different books. Tomorrow I have a few errands to run, and my oldest daughter is going to a music festival at a college nearby. Her performance is in the afternoon. After that I am hoping to get a run in, and some blog hopping, too. That is all hinged on my middle daughter feeling better. She must have acquired the virus my oldest daughter had last weekend. At least I can thank them for holding off on being sick during the work week.
Hoping there is a lot of blog hopping and reading going on for others, too.

I too prefer to read rather than watch the movie but having said that the P&P with Colin Firth was wonderful! I am following the blog hop.

I haven't read The Help yet but it's on my list of things to read this year.

I want to see The Marble Faun made into a film. Come see why. Happy Blog Hop!

Just hopping by.

The problem is that the aspects of a book that I think will make a great movie aren't always the ones the movie makers see.

My feelings about books and movies are very similar to yours, Tina...if I really loved a book, I don't even usually give the movie a chance.

Hi! Just stopping by on the hop. I love it when a book gets turned into a movie-especially a book that i really like or love. However, I always walk into the theater really nervous and praying that they didn't mess it up. Usually I end up seeing it as a different version of the story. But 9/10 times I usually love the book way more than the movie.
Hope you have a great weekend and that your daughter feels better :)
