Booking Through Thursday 16
Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme which asks a bookish question which you have to answer. This weeks question is:
And–the reverse of last week’s question. Name one book that you hope never, ever, ever gets made into a movie (no matter how good that movie might be).
Without a doubt anything in the horror genre. I can't specify one book but if it ends up as a horror movie I'm not watching it. I used to be able to watch horror movies when I was younger but I had a few bad experiences and now I just get too freaked out. I once watched The Hills Have Eyes late at night and ended up having to watch three hours of the shopping channel until the sun came up before I could go to sleep. And that movie Jeepers Creepers - scared the crap out of me, anytime I hear the song of the same name I have horrendous flashbacks. Scary books don't really bother me but movies - not good.
As for books so awesome it would ruin them if they were made into movies. I would have to go with any book written by Tamora Pierce. Her books, to me, are so perfect I can't even imagine them as movies. That said if anyone did make them into movies I would so be there - but I really hope they don't.
That's all for now.
