Questions of the Week:
Blog Hop: What books would you like to see turned into a movie?
That's a hard one, because it's almost impossible to perfectly turn books into movies. The Harry Potter books are pretty close, but even they don't make it. I am a fan of the Twilight movies. They aren't nearly as good as the books - there's lots to complain about of the films - but I don't know how it really could have been done better. I think some books are just hard to translate onto screen no matter how good of a script, director, or actors you have.
That being said, here are a few books I'd like to see as movies, for better or worse:
1. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
2. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
3. Gallagher Girls by Ally Carter
4. White Cat by Holly Black

Follow Friday: If you are a fan of Science Fiction what is your favorite book? If you haven't read Science Fiction before...any inkling to? Anything catch your eye?
I have never been a science fiction fan, but I'd like to change that. Until a few years ago, I hated fantasy (thank you Harry Potter!) and paranormal romance (thank you Twilight!). I don't think one should necessarily discount any genre. One good book could get you hooked.
The only science fiction book that comes to mind that I enjoyed was Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card and the companion Bean books. I'd like to read Robert Heinlein at some point, but haven't. What books do you think could convert a sci-fi hater like me?
