Booking Through Thursday

Do you find yourself thinking that the books you read would be good on film? Do you wish the things you watched on TV or in the movies were available as book?

I hardly ever think any book should be made into a movie. The only time I can remember thinking that I couldn't wait to see a particular scene on film was when I was reading the final battle between Voldemort and Harry in Deathly Hallows. I was dying to see Ralph Fiennes in that last scene, and then they went and changed it in the movie trying to make it much more "epic" when it was much better the way it was written in the book. So I didn't really get to see the scene the way I imagined it.

No, I don't think I've ever wanted anything I've seen on tv to be made into books.

It is a shame so many movies aren't quite as good as the books. =( Thanks for stopping by!

Usually when they make a movie from the book, it's not nearly as good.

I always think that I'd love to see the books I love on the big (or little) screen, but I'm always leary because it would have to be done well. So often a book gets slaughtered in movie format! I'd love to see Wheel of Time come to life, but it would have to be something like Game of Thrones (HBO) where they take their time, have a huge budget, and don't cut stuff out right and left. Great question! :D
