This week’s question:
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?
Oh man. What a tough question! Yesterday I posted a review of an amazing, book, Raising Stony Mayhall. It’s about zombies, but it’s more of a family drama than a gorefest. Unfortunately, I can easily picture Hollywood completely revamping it and turning it into a blood & guts flick.
A series I adore, Victoria Laurie’s Psychic Eye Mystery series, would work far better as a sitcom than a movie..
I’m still holding out hope for either a Good Omens (it seems like this has been in development limbo forever) &/or an American Gods movie!
TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by Greads! This week’s question is:
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?
I could go on for days about this. My immediately response would be to hail censorship & banning as unconstitutional, it’s wrong, how dare you, etc. But in actuality, I can understand it. Granted, I find some reasons for banning/challenging absolutely ludicrous, but there are some that are at least somewhat reasonable.
Ultimately I feel it’s up to the child’s parents to decide what he or she can read. Some children simply aren’t mentally/emotionally mature enough to handle certain issues and what’s suitable or not should be left to the parents’ discretion.
