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.

Banned Books: How do you feel about the censorship of the freedom to read? Do you think the education system needs to be more strict on what children are exposed to in books?

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.

That's it for now! Have a great weekend!

Oh man, I agree about the banned books! Maybe they could spend less time worrying about the books they DON'T want kids to read, and spend MORE time worrying about books that will capture their interest, spark their imagination and encourage a lifetime love of reading. Oops...sorry to rant :-) And I love Emma Stone!

Thanks for the follow! Following you back!

I agree that the Hunger Games is my favorite banned book. I still haven't read the Vampire Diaries.

Hopping through. I'd love to see both Vampire Academy and BDB on the screen - maybe more TV.

VA was a popular choice to the question! For the win! Lol! :P
I never thought of Emma Stone before, though. I absolutely do not want Megan Fox either way. But Emma does have a good personality for the character. I'm just not entirely sure on the age translation. *shrugs* I've been thinking on it, and I think Jared Padalecki would make a good Dimitri. Once again, I'm not really up there with some of the other fans who call for Ben Barnes (although the guy is adorable) haha.

Oh and BDB would probably make an excellent HBO series, much better than a movie in my opinion.

By the way, love your blog!

Thanks for visiting and the comment. :) Hope you've had a wonderful weekend!
