Follow Friday [2]

It's FRIDAY!!!  I don't know about you, but this has been such a long week.  Post-holiday weekend weeks always seem to be longer, despite the fact that there were only four work days.  But it's the weekend now, and time for lots of reading time, plus my hubby and I are going to see Cats tomorrow night!  This should be interesting, since hubby doesn't care for musicals, but I talked him into this one and I'm hoping that he'll enjoy it!

Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee.  This week's question is: What is one book that you would be nervous to see a movie adaption of because you think the movie could never live up to the book?

My friend Sarika recently told me that Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall is being made into a movie.  I loved that book so very, very much and I'm a little nervous to see how the story translates into the big screen.  I have my fingers crossed that it'll be amazing!

  1. Hopping through. Hmm...I'm wary of Before I Fall too. It could be good but could be very bad.

  2. I love how my new blog list lets me know when people I follow have updated! Makes me look like I'm stalking you... I'm not nervous about Before I Fall yet... it really depends on the casting for me. I'm worried they're going to cast an overrated Disney star. Or change parts of it to make the characters more likeable when their flaws were what made me love the book. Can't wait!

    1. OMG -- I really hope that they don't turn it into a Disney-ish type movie. It's a MUCH better book than that. I was reading some other FFs that talked about favourite books being turned into movies with Selena Gomez as the lead actress *shudder*

  4. I hadn't heard that Before I Fall was going to be made into a movie - maybe I should bump it up my TBR a bit further and make sure I read it before it comes out!

  6. I have yet to read Before I Fall (I'm hunting libraries in my city for it ;)) but I heard good things about this book, so hopefully the movie will be as good. :)

  8. I didn't know Before I Fall was getting made, I absolutely adored that book. I hope they don't ruin it.

  9. I'm like you, I'd be a little nervous that Before I Fall was being made into a movie, myself. I'd be even more worried if it were Delirium or Pandemonium.

  13. Yep, Before I Fall definitely has me nervous! I guess I'll watch it, but I'm not sure if I'll go to see it in the theater. If they do it right, which I hope they do, I'll be a complete mess. Thanks for stopping by and for the follow! *Now following you*
