Book Blogger Hop Day: February 18-21

Book Blogger Hop

It's Book Blogger Hop Day courtesy of the meme available at Crazy-for-Books.com.  If you're crazy for books and like hearing about upcoming and new titles, let others know by hopping by their blogs for a visit.  This week's question is:

"What book(s) would you like to see turned into a movie?"

Wow, this is a tough one since there are so many books I would love to see on the silver screen.  There are also some books turned into movies that I would love to have redone with a proper consultant rather than an artistic director.  If I had to narrow it down though, it would be these three books: 



Poison Study by Maria Snyder because I would love to actually see Yelena become the Commander's food taster and what tasks Valek has laid out for her in order to do so properly.  And I'll admit, I want to see just who they would pick to play the remarkable and skilled Valek. :)



The Nymph King by Gena Showalter because 1) I love the ocean and I figure what better setting for this novel if turned into a movie, 2) the fighting scenes not only between the nymph warriors but also the dragon warriors that arrive too, and 3) I'd just love to see Valerian and Joachim in the flesh.  Besides, can you imagine if this cover was used as the basis for the movie poster? ==>



The Unicorn Trilogy by Tanith Lee because I cannot choose just one as they all work together so well as a trilogy should.  I want to see Tanaquil's character development and also what sort of landscapes and settings would be used for a futuristic fantasy world that Lee has created.

  4. Poison Study! I must check out this book. I love Maria V. Snyder's science-fiction, I'm betting I'll like her fantasy titles as well.

  6. I would love to see Poison Study as a movie...although the prospect of ruining a book that I enjoy always makes me nervous about movies.

  7. @ Siobian: I hope you do get the chance to read it. One of my friends shoved it at me and just said, "READ IT." And thus a new Synder fan was made!

    @ Deb: Your picture is adorable though I have to say I like your Fancy Nancy shot a lot too! ;)

    @ Andrea: Many thanks, and I love visiting Reading Lark! :)

    @ Madigan: I haven't read any of Snyder's sci-fi yet, but I aim to read "Inside Out" and "Outside In" hopefully within the year. :)

    @ Elizabeth: Thanks for the heads-up, I'll check it out!

    @ Alison: I totally get that anxiety too, but if they use Maria as a consultant, it might not be so bad. :)
