TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
This week’s question: Musical Stories: If you could read a book about any song, which song would you love to see written down in story form?
Ok, so while this Texas girl can enjoy herself some country music, it’s really not my usual style, but my pick is a country song. In fact, I bet I’m surprising some people with this pick.
I wanted to choose this song because I want to see this wonderful summer love in full, glorious detail. I want to hear about the conversations these two had, and the experiences they had together. I want to read about the farm and the river and the drives. The only thing I would change is the ending. I don’t want them to loose touch and that’s it!! I want to read about how they lost touch for a while, but after going back one summer wanting to reminisce about that first love, they found each other again, realizing that there’s no one else in this world they’d rather be with, and that their love was the lasting kind, not just the first love kind.
This song always makes me reminisce about holiday trips to my grandparent’s place in Mexico, where I experienced my first serious crush. I’d live for those trips when we’d get to see each other again! *sigh* But, anyway…here’s the song:
This week’s question: 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’m really nervous about a couple of books…
1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower – This movie is already made and now we play the waiting game for its release. The screenplay is actually written by the author, so it might not be too bad. I’m mostly worried that it won’t have the same impact as the book.
2. The Sky is Everywhere – Selena Gomez as Lennie?! I’m dreading this, if it ever in fact happens.
3. Thirteen Reasons Why – Again, another adaptation that had Selena Gomez attached. I just worry that she doesn’t have the depth for these roles, ok! Nothing personal, lol. Miley Cyrus would be worse.
