TGIF - Feature & Follow Friday

Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that is designed to provide some much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog for the week, it's an interesting way to get to know one another.

Question of the Week: 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?

As much as I have high hopes for the highly ambitions Dark Tower adaptation planned (with movies and a TV series in between), the complexity of the books worries me . . . that`s a lot of imagination to translate to the screen.

Parajunkee also hosts a Social Hop for Facebook and Twitter, which I always take part in. So, if you're one of those people who aren't on Blogger, or who just don't like Google Friend Connect, it's a great way to keep in touch and follow one another.


TGIF is another blog hop designed to provide much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by GReads, it's an interesting way to recap the week, pose a question, and find some exposure with a different audience.

Question of the Week: If you could read a book about any song, which song would you love to see written down in story form?

I'm a big fan of old-school heavy metal and prog-rock concept albums, so I'd love to see one of them translated to the page. That's probably why I'm so excited about Rush's upcoming Clockwork Angels album, which is being novelized by Kevin J. Anderson, and why I have 2 copies of The Gospel of Filth, which provides the background stories behind Cradle of Filth's albums.


  1. hmm that's interesting. I've never read the book, but have heard great things about it. I doubt Hollywood can capture all of it!

  2. Hopping through. I'm not familiar with Dark Tower. I looked it up and saw it was King. They've done good movies with King's books in the past so maybe this would be good.

  3. I haven't read that book yet. It's on my TBR list. I'm a new follower.

  4. Hi there :) just hopping through.
    I haven't read this book but, it must be hard to duplicate the feel a book gives you to the onscreen.

    Here is my choice...

  6. I always worry about complex books being turned into movies! The timeframe they have to be shortened too just doesn't do them justice all too often!

  15. I haven't heard of the Dark Tower books. I'm going to have to check it out! Thanks for the follow. Following back via GFC :)

  16. I've never read The Dark Tower books, but I have heard friends talk about being nervous for the adaptation. It sounds highly ambitious and could be either really bad or awesome!

    New follower and thanks for visiting my blog this week!

  17. I'd heard about the Dark Tower books being made into a movie - fingers crossed it gets done justice! Now following you back via linky - thanks for stopping by my blog!

  18. I know what you mean, Actors would completely destroy my imagination of the characters.
    Thanks for stopping by earlier.
