Feature and Follow #6



Q: Books are turned into movies all the time! Turn it around. What movie would make a great book?

Great question, but I am afraid I will fail to answer it! I watch about two tv shows a week that I record so I can watch them whenever I am in-between books, and I can not remember the last time I watched a movie that wasn't a book first. My Fiance thinks I'm crazy at times, but books are so much more interesting to me than movies. The only reason I watch those are to compare them to the book and see how the studio and director decided to interpret things. Now that I think about it, besides Twilight coming out, I can't think of a single movie in theaters right now. 

What about you? Or any of you watch any good movies lately?

  1. Most of the good movies are inspired from a book, but there are still good romanctic comedies that could make a great book.

  2. I had a hard time too with answering because most movies I love were books first.

  3. Hopping through. I saw the new James Bond movie last week. It was actually pretty good and I don't usually like that sort of thing.

  4. Yes. That's true. That's probably why most of us pick from TV shows. LOL. Btw, I really love your font. Looks like really pretty handwriting. ;)

  5. I went old school, with Willow, because so much of today's tv/movies are adaptations of books. New follower via GFC.

  14. I had a hard time picking a book as well, because most movies I watch were already books, or wouldn't be good as a book.

  15. I have to agree that books are more interesting than movies. I do enjoy watching movies that are made from books if I have already read the book. I only go to the theater if there is something extra special that comes along.
    Following back and looking forward to your posts.

  17. I'm like you and don't watch much tv or go see very many movies and what movies I do see are based on books that I have already read so this was a hard question for me too. Thanks for stopping by my FF this week. Old follower :)

  23. I'm sort of like you, too. I tend to try and watch new movies with actors I really like, and some TV shows, but other then that... books all the way :)

  32. I agree, I always find books so much more interesting than a movie! But, my boyfriend is a HUGE movie lover so we argue on that a lot. Haha.

  33. I agree with you completely. Movies are no fun because there is no room to imagine. You see what you see.
