Hello everyone! Welcome to another Bookish Discussions!  Today’s discussion is going to be on “What are your Bookish Goals for 2016?”

For me, I have a lot of goals to complete this year and here they are:

  2. Complete at least 3 challenges this year:  I was only able to complete one challenge last year so I will try to complete at least 3 challenges this year!
  3. Comment on more blogs: I’ve often have trouble commenting on other blogs, so I’m going to try and comment on more blogs this year!
  4. Follow more book blogs: There are so many good book blogs out there that I want to follow, so I’ll try to search out more blogs for this year!

So, what are your bookish goals for 2016? Please feel free to respond!

Off-Topic Discussions #9: What books do you want to see as movies or TV shows?


off-topic

Hello everyone! Welcome to another weekly “Off-Topic Discussion!” This week’s off-topic discussion is, “What books do you want to see as a movie or as a TV series?”

 

Now, there are many books out there that we think deserve to be put into a film or into a TV series because there’s so much potential to spread out the characters’ stories through another medium.  Now at times, this can work for the book that is being adapted and other times, it can work against the book that is being adapted, depending on who is working on the films or the TV series.

 

For me, here are some books that I would love to see get their own TV series or films:

1.  The Fool and the Flying Ship by Eric Metaxas

The Fool and the Flying Ship (1991)

This is one book that I’ve always wanted to see get its own TV series since there are so many story lines that could be explored with these characters!  I also think that the book’s off the wall humor and creative artwork would appeal to a large TV audience.

2. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

 

This is one book I want to see as a film because I really enjoyed the relationships between the characters and I would love to see Jellicoe Road portrayed on screen in live action!

3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

 

This would be a fantastic series to put onto film, especially with seeing such creatures like the chimera and the angels on the screen together!

4. The Piper’s Son by Melina Marchetta

I know that we should start with “Saving Francesca” first since that’s the first in this series, but I really enjoyed reading “The Piper’s Son” and I would love to see who would play as Thomas in this film!

 

5. The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

I just loved this book and I would love to see how they would portray the characters and the bizarre world this book is set in on the big screen!

 

So, what books would you like to see on film or TV?
