Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Since the new year just began I thought it might be fun to read a book that is being made into a movie or a book you think should be made in to movie.

Here are 3 lists for you to look at: see books here

I do wish you luck and I hope you appreciate the book as much as I did! The movie isn't even playing in my area, but I sure hope it comes soon and doesn't skip us altogether.

message 15: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Thanks guys :) This week I have read like 10 pages which is very pathetic.


message 16: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Sometimes our lives and important things have to be our priority! We know you love reading, Gis! I hope you get to read more this week, but I certainly understand your dilemma!


message 17: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments :) You always have the right things to say. And that's why I love you lol

There are a lot to do at the moment, but I have finished most of them. So it might be possible that I will have more time to read :D

Allison Brunskill | 1891 comments I have been meaning to read The DUFF Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger for a while now. I have heard lots of good things.


message 24: by ★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix), snowflakes and eyelashes (new)

★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix) (ladyknightnix) | 5533 comments Does it work if I read a book that has ALREADY been made into a movie?


message 25: by Georgie (new)

Georgie Chiu (iamgeorgie) | 14 comments I choose Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss, #3) by Stephanie Perkins :D


message 26: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7530 comments hmmm...I may read Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles, #0.1) by Marissa Meyer as I want this series to be made into movies.


message 27: by Mehsi (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments I finished: Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy (Gallagher Girls, #2) by Ally Carter 3 stars. It wasn't that good sadly. :(


message 28: by ★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix), snowflakes and eyelashes (new)

★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix) (ladyknightnix) | 5533 comments I went with The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus, #1) by Rick Riordan 1/27 (4 stars) because of the popularity of Rick Riordan's books and especially the Percy Jackson series, perhaps it WILL one day be made into a movie!


message 29: by Katherine (new)

Katherine | 2849 comments I finished my pick!!!

I gave All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven 3 stars. It was OK, but I fail to see all the hype surrounding it. But I still enjoyed it.


message 30: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Katherine, I loved that book! All I can say is that we are all so different in our interests and type of writing we appreciate, etc. I'm glad you didn't hate it at least! :)


message 31: by Kim (new)

Kim I am going to go with The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman . I didn't know this book was going to be made into a movie.

Awesome! There are quite a few!


message 33: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Rowland | 14 comments I read the first two books in "The Maze Runner" series love it can't wait to watch the movie! I am now reading" The Pretty Little Liars" series not sure if a television series counts. I also read" The War Of The Worlds". I saw the movie as a kid. Also read "White Fang" I'm pretty sure that is a movie I just haven't seen it yet if it is. I read "Peter Pan" which was truly amazing to read because watching the movie I missed quite a bit of details and reading the book gave me a whole new perspective of the story. Last but not least I read the final book in "The Hunger Games" series called "Mockingjay", great trilogy I recommend that and all other books I mentioned in this comment. (:
