Q: What is one book that you would be nervous to see a movie adaption of because you think the movie could never live up to the book?

I would definitely be nervous to see Nevermore by Kelly Creagh and Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor made into a movie. Both of these books have SO MUCH going on in them that I feel that if they weren't done just right, it would inadvertently taint the books somehow. That would especially be the case with Nevermore, because of its added element of Edgar Allan Poe and his poems/stories that are featured in the book. So portraying the main characters and Edgar's work correctly would be a delicate task. I just love both of these books too much to see them made into a disappointing movie!

Thanks for stopping by! Leave me a comment and I'll come check out your post as well! =D

  1. I think I've heard that "The Daughter of Smoke and Bone" is becoming a movie - not sure who is going to be cast, but its going to be a difficult book to translate, that's for sure!

    Happy Follow Friday!

    2. I didn't know this either. I just read DOS&B a few weeks ago. I loved and hated it so it would be interesting to see if I felt the same about the movie. My F&F

  3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is one of those books that I want to read because I've seen so many people rave about it. The more I see it talked about and read all the good things people say about it, they more I want to read it! And I never knew Nevermore had Edgar Allen Poe references in it, that makes me more interested in that book as well.

    Thanks for stopping by and following my blog, I followed you back!

  4. I really agree! The Daughter of Smoke and Bone had so much going on that I didn't really like it that well because of all that, so if it were made it into a movie, I can't even imagine how they would replicate all the fantasy and action going on.

    Thanks for following me, I'm following back!
