It's time to hop!

Book Blogger Hop
Every week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books ( hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: What book(s) would you like to see turned into a movie?

 The Help

I have to say a The Help, and since it's still being filmed I know it will happen. I hope they remain faithful to the book. Viola Davis is one of the lead characters, and I have rarely seen her in a bad flick.

Here are some blogs I came across:

Note: I'm looking for takers for my What's Up Tweeps?! feature. Here is February's question: James Frey is fleecing budding writers. Frey has created a publishing company, where students co-write novels with him for as little as $500, $250 or in some cases nothing. The bulk of the work is done by the students. Frey has "some" input. This is done on the premise that book will eventually become a bestseller, and then they reap the benefits. They've already achieved that with one book, "I am Number Four." Is Frey merely trying to help or is he robbing impressionable college students blind? Email responses to Today is the last day for entries. Happy reading everyone!


  1. Hi
    Just hopping by
    I'd prefer to read the book than watch the movie too :)

  2. I am a first timer to the blog. I definitely like to read more than watch the movie but I did make an exception for P&P!

  3. The Help is on my list of books I want to read this year. I want to see The Marble Faun made into a film. Come see why. Happy Blog Hop!

  4. New to your blog
    There are so many I would like to see made into films
    The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Help (we know this is coming and I agree I hope they stay true to the characters), Saving CeeCee Honeycutt to name a few.

    Though, I am usually disappointed with film versions of books because I have a different view of the book to the director. :)


  5. The book is usually better. I've never seen the film version of My Sister's Keeper, but I know they changed the ending. So wrong.

  6. Hopping by...

    The Help has the potential to be an amazing movie, I agree!
