Feature & Follow

Follow Friday is a blog hop Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read

Q: What is one book that you would be nervous to see a movie adaption of because you think the movie could never live up to the book?
I think it’s the same for all the books I love, because It can’t be as amazing, doesn’t it?. The first novel that came to my mind is One for the Money by Janet Evanovich. I just love the whole series and I’m a little afraid to watch the movie. Well I want to see it as well, but I’m sure it won’t be the same.

  1. Hopping through. I haven’t read the books or seen the movie. I know some people really liked it. I’m not a Heigl fan.

    BTW – a few weeks ago, you commented when I was featured on Missie’s The Unread Reader about whether I’d ever been to France. I forgot to respond. I spent 3 days in Paris five years ago. I absolutely loved it. One of my dreams is to come back and spend several weeks in Paris and France. I’d love to explore it further. I wish I spoke French. I speak okay Spanish and can read French pretty well because it’s similar. I can’t understand or speak any of it though.

    • It’s true, I was wondering when I saw all the place you went. I hope you would do it soon! It’s funny you can read it, some words looks like the same in spanish but it’s always quite different. thanks for the answer!

  2. I haven’t read this series. I heard from a co-worker that it’s pretty good but I have so many books to read before I can even think of adding a new series to my wishlist.

  3. I LOVE your answer to this question, Mel — I feel the exact same way! As much as it’s be cool to have all of our favourite books on the big screen in theory, it’s also scary because the chances of the movie being as awesome as the book (at least, without being five hours long) is a million to one! The actors wouldn’t be who you pictured them to be and the story wouldn’t look the same and — arrrrgh, it just doesn’t work LOL! x) But there are those rare times when the movies can be brilliant 🙂

    Fantastic answer, Mel! I hope you have a great weekend! 🙂 <3

  4. Oh yeah I forgot about that movie. I love that series but I heard the movie was bad. Just from the preview I could see all the things that were changed and I was already disappointed. Movies just always take away your own personal thoughts of how you pictured everything. That is why books are always better. They can be different for everyone where the movie is the same for everyone.
    Thanks for stopping by My FF!

  5. Books into Movies is always something very delicate. However, I feel that movies try more and more to adapt the inner voice and message of a book. See Harry Potter or Twilight and The Hunger Games they really tried to be so close to the book and I love seeing this!

  6. It’s always terrifying to see how a director has imagined your favourite characters…it could change entirely how you picture them forever. Personally I would be very nervous to see Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld series in the big screen…I like my own imagines in my head! That said if it was made I would have to see it at some point…

  7. Ah hah, I was curious whether ONE FOR THE MONEY fans were going to see the movie! I don’t think it did all that well, so probably not, hah. Book to movie adaptations are always tricky, and hardly ever good. So I always worry when I see a book I love being adapted, too.

  8. Hi Mellaine 🙂

    I’m sorry I’m late, but I’ve just had a very hectic yet boring weekend!! Lol!!

    Always love when you visit!!:) I thought One For The Money movie was equivalent to a tv movie, it was just meh for me unfortunately!

    Hope you’re having a spectacular weekend!!!

  9. I haven’t read One for the Money but I’m much the same when it comes down to films / tv series based on books I’ve loved – often enough my curiosity will get the better of me and I’ll watch it anyway!
