Letter:
1. Diane, Dying for a Love to Sink Some Teeth Into

Paris, France
male, romance
I don't currently have a favorite male, though I would say Edward from the Twilight books (not Robert Pattinson) would be my current leader. I'm looking for a real swoon-worthy hunk of a man. Help me please!
2. Diane, Bandaging up a Broken Heart
Location: Varsha
Reason You're Playing: Broken heart (Man, Love)
I found myself in a whirlwind romance with an amazing man named Augustus. Unfortunately, Augustus met with a devastating end as cancer took him from me. My heart has been broken by his loss. I'm hoping to find a man who can heal my heart through friendship (or maybe more). Trust is very hard for me. Help me please to find my heart a Band-aid.

Picks:
Game 1:

Black → Movies → #2 → Reading → Diamond → B → And the Winner Is ... !
Game 2:

Red → Movies → #4 → Reading → Diamond → B → And the Winner Is ... !

Diane Shea (diane_shea) | 204 comments Do all books have tags? I thought that I could just look on the book's main page, but I'm not finding tags for The Thousandth Floor.

GENRES
Young Adult 532 users
Science Fiction 256 users
Science Fiction > Dystopia 168 users

If I looked at the right book at least! Can you see that on the right hand side too? It might depend on how you're viewing it. The app or mobile version might now be as easy to see. I always use the desktop view even on my phone because I like being able to access all the features like editing comments 😊

Are you sure that's been turned into a movie or tv show? I couldn't find record of it anywhere, and it's one that I would definitely watch!


message 22: by Diane (new)

Diane Shea (diane_shea) | 204 comments Sorry, I looked up a list of books to movies and this was on it. Upon further inspection, the rights have been bought, but the movie is not actually being filmed yet. I'm curious if that will change in the near future with Obsidio coming out soon. Ignore that post!

Unfortunately, it really wasn't. It wasn't bad, but they modernized the story (which I was okay with) but the story was changed just enough that the story is now flawed and that angered me. But, I got a date with my hubby out of it, so I can't complain too much!


message 27: by ★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix), snowflakes and eyelashes (new)

★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix) (ladyknightnix) | 5531 comments Aw man! I was hoping they'd finally do as close to perfect of a book to movie translation. I remember really loving that book. I'll try to separate it from the book in my mind when I finally see it.
