Feature & Follow Friday #3

I'm back! It's been forever since I've written here, and let me tell you, things have been crazy hectic over the last few months! I've been working on my thesis, teaching Composition and Research at my university (so much grading!), attending tons of meetings, and trying to make time for friends and family. But, I've missed blogging and I've missed reading all the book blogs out there. So, what better way to make a comeback than with a blog hop?!

Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read every Friday. This week's featured blogs are: Murcurial Musings (Parajunkee) & Owl Tell You About It (Alison). I hope you'll stop by and say hello, if you haven't already.

Okay, here's this week's question: What book would you love to see made into a movie or television show and do you have actors/actresses in mind to play the main characters?

This is really tough, actually, because I feel like they rarely get books right in translation to film. I enjoyed Twilight okay, and I liked Harry Potter, but neither of them got it completely right. I am dying to see Hunger Games, but who isn't? So, I think right now the answer to this is that I'd like to see any regency romance turned into a film. I love period pieces, I love romance, and I know this is a really weird choice, but I'd love it! Of course, I may be the only one, so the chances are slim... but hey, a girl can dream!

As for actors, I'd really like to see Gerard Butler as the leading man. I adore him and I think he's got just the right look to play a rakish high society rogue. Female characters are where I really struggle. The truth is,I have no idea about this one. But definitely Gerard Butler for the male lead.

Another series I'd love to see turned into movies would have to be Colleen Gleason's Ordo Dracul series. The Vampire Dimitri was fantastic, I absolutely loved it! Oh, and maybe The Goddess Test, too, I really liked that one and can't wait to read Goddess Interrupted. But again, no idea for the actors and actresses.

Well, there you have it. I hope you'll take a minute to say hello and leave a link so I can return the favor. See you for next week's hop!


  1. I also cannot wait for The Hunger Games. I love Harry Potter they are some of my favorite books. I think they did pretty well with making them into movies. My son and I both love the books and movies. I am also a fan of Twilight but think that they could have done better! Hopefully they will get The Hunger Games right.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and I am a new follower :)

  2. I'm not big on historical fiction but I love watching it in movies...weird right? Maybe it's the descriptions, half the time I have no idea what they're talking about in the book, but in a movie I can actually see it LOL
