Hi everyone! This weekly meme is hosted by the fantastic Alison at Alison Can Read and the fabulous Parajunkee! :)

This week's question:
 How would you pitch to the biz to make your favorite book into a movie? 

Step 1: 
the hunger games animated GIF

Step 2: Run
Step 3: Join the cult following that always seems to pop up whenever YA books are turned into movies. 

For real though, I totally agree with Alison from Alison Can Read: no more book to movie adaptions (ESPECIALLY FOR YA!!), but if  it was to become a TV show, where the author is really involved in the making and the story isn't too far off from the books, then maybe.  But all these book to movie adaptations- I'm seriously not feeling it.  Off the top of my head, I think the last Hunger Games movie I watched (I think it was Catching Fire ??) was honestly the only YA book to movie adaption that I've loved in the recent years- which is ironic, since I didn't like the Hunger Games series LOL.  I'm also really weird  and picky when it comes to  book to movie adaptions.  If the movie's too true to the book, it seems... lackluster.  If they deviate from the book a lot (or little- it depends on the detail(s) they change xD), it makes me angry.  I don't think I can ever win with movie adaptations LOL. 

But that won't stop me from watching and hoping this next one is better. ;D

How about you guys? :)
Thanks for stopping by!

I completely agree with you! Movies based on books just aren't worth watching for book fans; so much awesome stuff seems to get cut out of the movies. Or worse, movies add extra details that aren't in the books! However, I'm good with TV series adapted from books; there's so much more potential there! New Bloglovin' follower! :)

Yeah, the movies are just kinds of "Meh" for me. But I'm really liking the TV adaptions that I've been seeing. I think that TV works so much better for books.
