TGIF!

TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.

Books to Television: Which books would you love to see made in to a tv series? or movie?

I think ones with many characters and long stories would work great as tv series:

 

 

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon – As epic as they come. Think Game of Thrones epic, except this one’s more historical with only some fantasy(time-travel) aspects.

 

 

 

The Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong – This one has supernatural and crime/mystery aspects that I think would be awesome for tv.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr – This is actually optioned to be made into a movie, but I think it would make a magical tv series if done right. It was enough characters and story for it. I want them all to have their moment in the spotlight, and it worries me that the movie won’t do that for them.

Follow Friday

Follow My Book Blog Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read where we all get together and say HI!

Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one?

I don’t think so…

Maybe I’ve felt sympathetic toward some, hoped it would’ve turned out different for them…especially when they become villains due to their circumstances. Like maybe they would’ve had a chance at being a decent person had they not been raised by, say, Valentine Morgenstern (See: The Mortal Instruments) (also, tried really hard to make that sentence spoiler-free, so, yay, me!).

But other than that, not really.

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books where you have an awesome opportunity to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?

I could never give up reading! I read anything with romance in it, in both Adult and YA genres, but if that element was removed, I think I’d try my hardest to like it anyway. I’d most likely try hardest with fantasy or sci-fi, maybe even horror.

Reading has become an escape I just could not imagine giving up under any circumstances.
