Friday Hops ~ 09/30

Every Friday,  Parajunkee and Alison Can Read host Follow my Book Blog Friday! So welcome to another stop on this hop!

It's fairly simple- follow the hosting blog, the feature blog, and then use the links to discover new blogs! And if someone follows you, be kind and follow back! It's a fun way to find new bloggers to read and make new connections :)

Featured Bloggers for this week are The Bookaholic and Starcrossed!



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?


I'm really hesitant to pick one, because I tend to be kind of afraid that they'll mess it up! Seriously, it's only recently that I've begun to calm down over The Hunger Games and I'm doing my best to stay optimistic, because to be honest I've liked what they've done so far. Even though the casting was questionable at first.

I'm kind of tempted to say Delirium by Lauren Oliver because I think it could be done really well, and if you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I'm just crazy about Delirium. But I'd be terrified that they'd ruin it. And I can't think of any actors I'd love to see in those roles.

Another book series I'd love to see made into a movie is Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls. I think that one could be a lot of fun, but I could see someone like Amanda Seyfried playing Cammie. I think she has the sort of look, and not only is she a talented actress but she kind of has that same light and quirky feel that Cammie has.

I definitely think Delirium would make a great movie! It's one of my favorite books!

Hi, I'm Izzy and I'm stopping by for Follow Friday! The Gallagher Girls would make an AWESOME movie if they did the casting right, and I'd like to see Delirium too.

I always worry they'll mess up the book too, I think all fans of the book do. I worry most that it'll take the place of how I visualised everything so it almost becomes less personal, if that makes any sense haha! Can't wait to see how The Hunger Games turns out.

I haven't Deliriium or the Gallager Girls yet but they're on my tbr list :)

Yes, Delirium would be good, but I can't think of an actor to play Alex... I just received a Pandemonium ARC in the mail today and can't wait to start reading it, but I hear there's not as much Alex in it.

Have a great week,

I totally agree that the Gallagher Girls series would be awesome as a movie! I could also see it as an ABC Family tv show :)

Hopping through. I agree that it's always worrying that the movie will screw the book up. But I do think Gallagher Girls would be a fab movie or TV show.
