Books to Movies....

I was at the library this morning with my little one and I overheard a conversation that struck my interest. Books being adapted into Movies.. it happens quite often these days.. some good and others.. well- should've just been left alone. Everybody has their opinions. That is what I am most interested in- what everyone's thoughts are about Books being Adapted into movies...
So I did an internet search on several of my favorite authors to see what projects they are working on and the one that caught my attention the most was P.C. Cast - now this may not be news to some but I was reading her blog about the House of Night series being adapted into a TV series or Movie- perhaps both(?). There were a list of questions from fans about how the Movie will ruin the series et cetera.
I personaly once had a negative feeling about the adaption of books- but after reading the responses P.C. Cast has provided to her blog readers, giving them a positive outlook on the adaption and understanding that- Yeah it WILL be different! I can say that I have a new respect for the process and outcome.
After reading her blog post about Movie Info I am actually quite excited to see what producers will do with the wonderful House of Night Series!

I would love to hear your thoughts about this topic regarding any book adaption into a movie!

  1. I have not read any of the Vampire Diaries books, but I absolutely ADORE the tv series. I've heard it's very different from the books though. As for the whole Twilight phenomenon - definitely think the books are way better than the movies! I've heard rumors that Stephenie Meyer's The Host will be made in to a movie, now I'd like to see THAT! If done right, I think it would be excellent.

  2. I have only read part of the Vampire diaries- When writing this post I completley forgot about the series on TV! I honestly have never watched but I think I will be checking that out. All I keep thinking about now is the TRUEblood series and the Sookie Stackhouse books- I have only watched the series but never read the books and I'm pretty sure I won't read them now. If Stephenie Meyer's 'Host' was adapted- I would deffinatley be interested!
