It's great timing that this week's the.book.chat. is all about movies, ya know with the Oscars this weekend, and a lot of this years nominees are movies based on books. So what books would I like to see as movies? I did a little googling before I stated writing this because I don't typically read a lot of type books that are made into movies. At least until I'm going to see the movie.
My favorite kind of books are romances and while a lot of romance books are made into movies, I mostly stick to the same authors and series. I'm not that big on change. The one thing I love about series are getting to see the same characters that I've read about before again and see them interact with characters I'm getting to know better. Does that make sense?
So here are some of my favorite book series that I'd like to see made into movies...
|In Death Series|
|Black Dagger Brotherhood|
|FBI/US Attorney Series|
|Heiress For Hire|
Sometimes when I read a book it's easy to picture what the character looks like in my head and sometimes it's not so easy. The number one reason I'd like to see a book as a movie is to actually see the interaction between the characters and see something that before was just in your head, come to life.
It can be done wonderfully (Harry Potter) and not so wonderfully (The League of Extraordinary Gentleman) or the casting can just be wrong (some of the X-Men cast). What books do you want to see as movies?
