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 your favorite character?
A. The one book I would LOVE to see made into a movie is The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer! I love that book so very much, and it would definitely make a great movie. :)

Not sure who I would picture as the cast... I definitely need to do a re-read so I can visualize! lol!

  3. Yay! You included To Kill a Mockingbird, one of my all-time favorite books! :D It didn't make sense for it to be banned or for any of the books on the lists. I'm curious to see what 2011's list will bring. Have a great weekend!

  6. Hopping through. It's hard to believe anyone would ban Bridge to Terabithia. I loved that book.

  13. Oooh, I just got Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, but I haven't gotten a chance to read it yet! But from just the few pages, I've read, I could totally see it becoming an amazing movie.

    And great choices for the favourite banned books! Bridge to Terabithia is an amazing book - even if I weep my heart out every time I read it.

    My FF is over here if you'd like to stop by! Happy reading!

  15. YES YES YES! The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer must be a movie! That would be awesome.

    I love so many of your choices for banned books. The fact that some of them are banned makes me sad. :(

  21. Mara Dyer was my other choice for this question, but alas I chose something else. Wouldn't know who to cast either since I'm not all too familiar with young actors these days (great, I just made myself feel old).
