What is one book that you would be nervous to see a movie adaptation of because you think the movie could never live up to the book?
There are so many books like that. I mean its just so hard to take something that everyone has their own view on. but there are a few that truly terrify me!!! It’s almost to the point where you cant really expect anything from a book adaptation. They really are going to be two completely different things. I mean Hunger games was one of the best adaptations I have ever seen and of course, Twilight is kinda the worse. I mean just ahhhhhhhhh it makes me just so nervous I don’t like to think about it!! When I started reading, I wanted every book made into a movie, but now I'm like NOOOOO I want my books to be kept in my head and left alone!!!!

The number one being Fifty Shades of Grey series. I'm so pissed that is being made into a movie. I really don’t see how they are going to make it work without it being in an adult store. Its not the character or what not that upset me. I just think…no wait I know this book/movie will not be what I want!!!! Flat out!

And then the other one I'm scared of is The Mortal Instruments. I'm super excited and also nervous! But I think I'm more excited to see this world be brought to life. But I don’t agree with JCB as Jace. He just doesn’t do it for me.
And lastly, I REALLY do not want Beautiful Disaster or Obsidian made into a movie! I mean it would be really great because I love Jamie and Jennifer and their books are just amazing! But these books are just so near and dear to my heart! I know that if it’s anything less than perfect or if Travis or Daemon are wrong, I'm sure my life would be over!!! Hahaha ok well not really but you get my point!

What book makes you worried??

Don't forget about my Trying To Score Giveaway!!!  GO SHARKS!


  1. Happy to see someone else picked Obsidian. I really need to read the 50 Shades series, everyone seems to be crazy about it right now. Thanks for sharing :)

    P.S. I LOVE the little critters on your blog!

  2. I love your answer and your blog!

  3. Hi there :) just hopping through.

    Oh Fifty :D There would be so many sex scenes that they would classify it as porn :/ What on earth are they thinking :O The movie is going to be an injustice to all that is Fifty!

    Here is my choice...

    Feature & Follow

  4. Hopping through. I'm very nervous about TMI. But I'm one of the few who loves Jamie. More than Lily.

  5. I've heard a lot of people saying about City of Bones this week - but I agree, JCB is not my mental image of Jace at all!

  6. Hi! I'm a new follower hopping by!

    Lovely answer! I think as long as the author has a voice and participates in the decisions needed for the movie, the movie will turn out fine.

    My fff:

  7. I am really nervous about Fifty Shades becoming a movie. I don't know how they will capture the feelings and sex without making it a chessy porno or something lol And I'm nervous about The Mortal Instruments as well.

  8. Yeppers. Me, too!! I haven't read any of your choices (sheesh!) but I totally agree that I like my books in my head where they belong!! :-D

    Happy Friday! -Burgandy Ice

  9. I was really shocked too when I found out that Fifty Shades series will be into a movie! I mean, it's strictly full of adult-only content and I don't know how they will ever make it work! Well, finger crossed they somehow find a way! :D

    I'm old follower via GFC! :)

  10. I will SO watch the Fifty movies. I can only imagine how epic and awful they will be. Should probably read the books before, though.

    And oh, no! Beautiful Disaster! Never as a movie, pulease.

  11. I also chose City of Bones! I haven't read the others, but I've heard great things about them and I'll have to pick it up soon. I think that Jamie makes a pretty bad Jace, so I agree with you. I hope that I end up being wrong, though. :)

  12. I haven't read any of these books but I feel like the Fifty Shades of Grey series is all anyone is talking about right now! I should probably start reading them soon :)

  13. City of Bones was one of my choices as well. But I think JCB is out, so that may actually be a good thing for the film. I just wasn't seeing him as Jace either. And I definitely hope this new set of YA movies follows more in the way of Hunger Games than Twilight as well. You can make a good movie and people will still go see it!

  14. 50 Shades,how are they ever going to pull that off. I agree it would have to have the triple x rating.
