Follow Friday (21)

Follow Friday is a really fun way to network your blog and meet some other really cool bloggers in the process! This weekly event is hosted at Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

Q: 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 you favorite character?

A:  Within the past six months I've heard a lot of talk about Vampire Academy being made into a movie.  My feelings are divided when it comes to this epic series because I love it so much.  When Twilight first came out, I loved the books so much that when they started making them into movies, I was super excited.  But now I can never reread the Twilight series because I can't get Kristin Stewart's voice out of my head.  Even though I watch all the movies and I go to the midnight showings, they've ruined the books for me.  I don't want the Vampire Academy movie to ruin the books for me.  Now I don't know about who I would cast but I know who I wouldn't cast.  I definitely would NOT want Megan Fox or Sophia Bush to play Rose.  I also don't know who I would want to play Dimitri, but whoever plays them better have good chemistry together or it just won't work.

I also heard that Lisa McMann's Wake series is going to be made into a movie with Miley Cyrus leading the cast.  UUGGHH! I can't stand that girl! But I'll still see it.

I haven't read the VA series yet but definitely think it would make a great movie!

I chose VA academy, too and can totally understand why you wouldn't want to let Megan Fox portray Rose.

I'm a new follower and I'd love if you'd follow back.

I would die if they turned the VA series into a movie!! Someone actually mentioned turning it into a TV show which I thought was a great idea! Didn't think of that one. Great choice :)

Oh I TOTALLY agree with you. Miley Cyrus CANNOT play the lead in Wake. I think it may even ruin the trilogy for me (or I just wouldn't go see it.) I picked VA as my answer this week, too. I put my Rose pick up on my blog.

New Follower!
Have a great week,

I haven't read VA but from what I heard it would definitely be great TV show. Great choice.

lol Miley Cyrus. I love corny Disney Channel shows and movies, but her acting in Hannah Montana still always just made me think of Punky Brewster. Very campy and overdone. I can forgive my little Moon Fry, lol, but I don't know if I can take Miley seriously after HM.

Hopping through. Ugh, Miley. I've also heard she's linked to the Wings books by Aprilynne Pike.

haha! I agree completely. Though I really like Megan Fox, she wouldn't be right for that role at all. and Miley Cyrus . . . .? Yeah, no. I also heard she is up for the lead in Wings by Aprilynne Pike -- hope not. Don't hate the girl, but she is not the best actress.

Thanks for the follow, following as well--

In some ways I would love for the VA series to be made into a movie or show, but I don't want it to ruin the books for me. The chemistry between those actors/actresses have got to be good.

When I tried re-reading the twilight books after watching the movies all I could picture was Robert and Kristen as Edward and Bella

I also read where Miley was linked to the wake series. I read the first book,and I'm not so sure she would be right for Janie.

I've seen the VA series listed as I've been hopping around. It makes me more curious about them. I hesitate to nominate my favorite books for movies as well. I don't like what they did Water for Elephants.
