Hey bookworms! I hope you’re all having a wonderful start to your week! It’s been a while since I’ve done a Movie Monday, so if you don’t know what this lovely feature is: It is where I take the opportunity … Continue reading
Hey Bookworms! Sorry for another late post, but my computer has decided to have issues today. It is getting older and I think it heard that I want to replace it, so I think it is rebelling against me… Any who today’s post is another Top Ten Tuesday post a weekly meme in which we are given a theme or question and must respond with the top 10 books that correspond for us! This meme is hosted by the lovely blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s question is what Top Ten books would you like to see come to life on screen as either shows or movies? I am going to do 5 Movies and 5 Shows! At the end I will also include my favorite adaptions. So let’s get started!
Top 5 Books I’d Love to See Hypnotize Me on the Big Screen: Movies
1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Anyone who knows I love this book knows how much I want to theme everything after this book! I would love to see the magic come to the silver screen and I would even love to be an extra as a Rever! I think a few more years and special effects could make this book an amazing movie! I think the HP set designers would make the tents lovely!
2. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
I think this would be a really touching and interesting piece to see on screen. The themes would really come through strong and maybe bring a few tears forth
3. If You Could be Mine by Sara Farizan
Honestly hits a lot of topics especially about accepting yourself this would be another movie to break your heart, but a movie you could connect with the characters with.
4. Everything Leads to you by Nina LaCour
I think this would be beautiful and cute story to see and make you melt as well as give an inside to movies. I finished this recently and loved it!
5. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
I don’t think Beauty and the Beast gets enough adaption to screen because Cinderella mostly dominates retellings and I loved this world and would love to see a not perfect heroine who is not all good come to life on screen.
Top 5 Books I’d Love to See Hypnotize Me on the Big Screen: Shows
I know the movie flopped (even if I thought it was awesome) I’d love to see the school aspect and my favorite characters on screen especially Adrian!
2. The Selection Series by Kiera Cass
I know this is optioned for a movie, but it would be so much more fun to see this as a show. We’d get to know the characters better and get to feel more. Get to see the little details more intimately.
3. House of Night series by PC and Kristin Cast
I know many people don’t care for how long this series is, but I think as as a show they can focus more on the major plot points plus it is another school atmosphere I’d love to explore.
4. Raised by Wolves Series Jennifer Lynn Barnes
I didn’t liked the last book, but I would love to see Bryn’s life in the pack and all the details. Plus I love werewolves a werewolf book had to make it on my list!
5. Paranormalcy Series by Kiersten White
I would love to see Evie’s life in the agency and her interactions with those she captures! As well as discovering who she is
My Favorite Adaptions
1. The Bitten TV Show
I just am sooo in love with this series and it is my not so guilty pleasure! So Happy it got signed for season 3!
2, Howl’s Moving Castle
The book has more world building to it and has a slightly different setting, but both are adorable to be engrossed in. It has a beautiful world!
3. PS I Love You
I read the book after and I know the setting is Americanized, but Ahern was on board with it I think the tragedy in this movie still played out beautifully! Plus it has Gerard Butler need I say more? ^_~
Well bookworms those were my choices. What were yours? Link me yours down below. What are your favorite adaptions I am always looking for more movie recommendations! I just can’t do scary. I know this is up a little late, but technology wasn’t my friend today. Hope it will be nice for my upcoming posts! This post did inspire me to write something similar to this topic. So look for that on Monday! Happy reading!
Hey bookworms! I am free!!! Well at least of my on Campus classes! I still have to do a post for my online Sociology class on Sunday, but I don’t have to stress about stuff due on Monday! It feels so good to not wake up stressing about the million things to do. I am in my last year of University well at least in my undergrad, and I put more pressure on myself to get A’s! I want to get the most out of my classes especially my creative writing class! So unlike some people who get to go away for break… I am a little disappointed to say my plans to go away for my last one didn’t work out as planned, but that’s life. *shrugs* Instead, I am going to travel the best way a college student can without going anywhere! How is that do you ask? With books, movies/ shows, and my new video game! So in case you’re curious about what I plan to read, watch, and play I’d thought I’d do a blog post! Plus I plan to also fill this break with blogging and writing for my next workshop submission which is due on Thursday. So, bookworms, even if this break will seem a bit lazy to most people who get to venture out I am going to try and keep productive!
So I’ve already finished two books since the first day of my break which was yesterday, and it makes me feel AMAZING! I’ve been in a huge slump since the semester started, and maybe because I haven’t found anything we’ve read in class too interesting. You would think that since they bored me they would have spurred me onto want to read more for fun they had the opposite effect. Since the reading was not something I looked forward to, they take me forever to read and by the time I finish it’s time to get ready for bed. So now that my Theory Test due date was moved I plan to spend spring break to read purely for pleasure! Here is what I read and plan to finish/read for break.
1. Pokemon Adventures Volume 3 by Hidenori Kusaka, Satoshi Yamamoto
Honestly my brain was on break on Wednesday in class. I couldn’t focus at all, so while I tried my best to participate I was reading this in class. I know horrible, but I couldn’t help it! I finished it late Wednesday, and it was a great way to start break! I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars!
2. Unleashed by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié
This book was one of the few I got at the Las Vegas Valley Book Festival! It’s a paperback which means I have to be careful with it because of moments when my hands sweat badly. So I’ve been reading it off and on since October! I know forever, right? It’s not that it didn’t keep me interested, but life gets in the way! So this book was the first novel I wanted to finish over break, and I don’t regret it. Well… Maybe a bit because it’s part of a trilogy… Which of course means I want the other two! I rate it a 4 out of 5 stars and will talk more about why in my wrap-up!
Spring Break TBR
Now I know I have talked about the first 4 for the last few months, but again I blame my slump! So I really plan to dig into them, and get them read over break! The rest are ones I’ve been dying to read, so I am so excited to devour them!
1. A Game of Thrones By George R.R. Martin
2. Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
3. Hood By Emma Donoghue
4. Eat, Pray, Love By Elizabeth Gilbert
5. One Day by David Nicholls
6. The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
7. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
8. Everything Leads to You by Nina Lacour
9. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling
What I Plan to Watch!
1. Doctor Who
Okay now if you read my Valentine’s Day post you know I am a Whovian! Now for break binge watching Doctor Who on Netflix will not only be for pleasure, but I also plan to use it for my final project in my Women Traveler’s class! Using my favorite companions as the travelers I am doing my project on. I’m on the fence though about using my blog for this project, so if anyone thinks using my blog for this is a good idea let me know please!
I am a huuuuuuuuuuge Oncer it is one of my favorite shows and I know I will watch it as normal, but it deserves a mention! I can’t wait till Sundays and am more than happy it’s back on!
Well since I can’t go anywhere for break I plan on buying the DVD’s off of amazon to compensate! This show always makes me feel better even when it makes me feel the feels! So yeah the book buying ban starts, but to make myself feel better I am buying movies… Yes I have a problem…
4. Wolf’s Rain
This is one of my favorite animes! I love anything with Wolves and I think this was one of my first animes. I own all the DVDs and feel I need to feel the feels of this anime again. It might get me in the mood for working on my story that involves wolves in a way. So I think this deserves a binge as well!
5. Any of My Gerard Butler Movies
So here is a fact about me Gerard Butler is my number one celebrity crush, and he even has his own section in my DVD case (I have a big album type thing because I feel actual cases take up too much room)! He is just perfection that only gets better with age. Like I said above since I’m not going on break I am splurging a bit on DVD’s most of them GB movies! So to make up for the fact that I won’t be able to spend break visiting my bf (timing and schedules suck, but there is hopefully more trips to come!)… I plan to distract myself with Gerry’s eyes and oh so yummy accent…
I got this book for my birthday for my PS3, so I’ve only been playing it for a bit, but so far loving the story line! I love that you get to choose between the two main characters whose story line you get to follow. I love RPG games I guess it goes hand and hand in loving books because I love a good story line. I am not the best gamer because the PS3 is the first big game system in a while, so I am not the best gamer, but I try.
So bookworms those are my spring break plans! If you are on break, what do you plan on doing? If you already had break, what did you do? Have you read any of the books I mentioned or do you plan to? Are you part of the fandoms mentioned above? Are you an anime lover who has any good ones to share? What system or games do you like to play? Who is your celebrity crush? If you guys want to see what movies I buy let me know if you want to see a haul! Have a good weekend and fill it with fun! Sorry if this post was long I just am trying to perk myself up about the perks of staying home for break. So I hope you guys like at least some of this post.
