Booking Through Thursday


This week, Booking Through Thursday asks  "If you could see one book turned into the perfect movie–one that would capture everything you love, the characters, the look, the feel, the story–what book would you choose?"

Hrm, this is a hard one. I have a fear of books made into movies. Books tend to be a lot more detailed than movies are although there are some pretty good movie adaptations out there. They can be done very well! I still can't get Juliet by Anne Fortier out of my head. I'd love to see that book made into a movie. It has intrigue, mystery, good characters and it has Italy. Oh yes, Italy! And the food, the amazing and wonderful food. Juliet would make a wonderful movie that could make you laugh, cry, and sit at the very edge of your seat during the twists and turns. My favorite kinds of movies are the ones that can deliver you to different emotions. They truly move!

What book would you like to see turned into a movie?

  1. I agree that any book turned into a movie must elicit emotions...it's fun to speculate, isn't it?

  3. Oh I just love those books that you can't get out of your head. I'd heard of Juliet but wasn't sure if I'd like it, but now it's added to the TBR! :)

  4. That is true, the best movies (and books, of course) are those who make you go through many different emotions. My BTT: http://beyondstrangenewwords.blogspot.com/2011/04/booking-through-thursday-coming-soon-to.html

  10. @Pepca The movies that make you feel something strongly (negative or positive) are the ones that stick with me for a long time!

Hi! Welcome to A Bookish Affair. If you leave a comment, I will try to either reply here or on your site!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
