Q. What book that hasn't been turned into a movie (yet) would you most like to see make it to the big screen, and who would you like cast as your favorite character?
Hmmm, just one! That is nearly impossible but I'm going again for the second week in a row..Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I was going to go with BDB, but I think that if turned into a movie, it would be looked at as a mix between movie and porn..lol. VA would make an amazing movie! Action, romance, and an actual badass heroine that girls could actually look up to, unlike other characters, but I wont mention names *cough* Bella *cough*..lol. I would pick Emma Stone (Easy A, Superbad and Zombieland) She would have to dye there hair but that is not a huge thing! It was hard to choose an actress, but I think Emma has enough sarcasm and badassness to get it right.Many say that Megan Fox would fit the bill, and I agree if she was a lttle younger. But since she's not, I'll go with Emma
““In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite “banned or frequently challenged book”?”Would also have to go with the Hunger Games. It is a suspenseful thrill ride that will have you going through an emotional roller coaster of emotions.
Yes, there are books that are not suitable for children. Yes, we must monitor what children are reading. But, to a certain extent. If a book is deemed unusal or peculiar, that does not constitute as inappropriate. There are many parents who do not want their children reading things that can sully their kids minds: like vampires, witches, and such horrid creatures. This way of thinking I do not agree with. Every child has the right to read according to their taste. The point is that they are READING! Not playing video games, not getting into trouble, but reading. These books play on a child's imagination and we should not stifle a child's imagination nor intrigue in their preferable book genre as long as it is made for YA.
