The Book Blogger Hop (18)

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and runs from Friday to Sunday. 

The Hop is a fantastic way to get your blog noticed, and visit some other blogs that you didn't know about before. Head over and sign up and see what you can find!

Each week a different question will be added to the hop in order for conversations to occur, and for your followers to get to know you better. Here we go!

"What books would you like to 
see turned into a movie?"

We talked about this over Christmas break, but I'll say it again....The Giver. Jeff Bridges has been trying for YEARS to try to put this into production, and for one reason or another, it just hasn't happened. Le Sigh. I will say that I am scared to death to see what The Hunger Games will look like. Please, oh please don't dumb it down because of the violence! 

Follow Friday is hosted by the lovely Rachel at Parajunkee's View. Here is her question:

"If you are a fan of Science Fiction,
what is your favorite book?"

I am a huge YA Sci-Fi fan! There are SO many that I love...this is so not fair. I'll break it down a little so I can name more than one. Lately, I loved Across the Universe by Beth Revis. I'm reading Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card right now. I like what I see so far, and I know it is a huge favorite of many. I have high expections for that one. Overall, my favorite would have to be The Giver by Lois Lowry. To my surprise, I read this little gem the other day on Lowry's blog:

"I have just finished the first draft of Part 2 of the fourth book in what was once The Giver trilogy, soon to be, I guess, quartet. It is now at 309 pages so I expect the final first draft will be well over 400, the longest book I've done."

Can you say, FREAKING OUT?! I am! I saw Lois speak just last month and she never mentioned this bit of hot news. Gah! I guess it's better that she didn't. I would have screamed in front of an auditorium of people. 

Leave your link and I will hop back to you! Thanks for stopping by...
