Book Blogger Hop (16) + Follow Friday

It's finally the weekend, which means time for another hop! Hosted by the lovely Crazy-For-Books.

Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite 'banned or frequently challenged' book?

I would definitely have to say my favorite 'banned or frequently challenged' book would be To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I absolutely adore this novel; it's one of the greatest books ever written, in my opinion. To ban it is just a shame.





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 to cast as your favorite characters?

I would really like to see L.A. Meyer's Bloody Jack series up on the big screen. These books are just such a romp! Jacky, the heroine of the story (also London street urchin turned pirate), is so well written, and I think if Hollywood found the right lead, she would translate so well on the screen! For the younger Jacky, I'd like to see maybe a really nitty-gritty sans-cute Dakota Fanning, and I think as she ages, Emma Watson would be able to pull Jacky off. (Or maybe even Jenna Malone?? But she's a bit old.)

To Kill a Mockingbird is a fantastic book. I wholeheartedly agree! I loved that book so much that when I was little I named my ferret Scout. ...which isn't that interesting a story. ;)

Hopping through. The Bloody Jack series is cute and melodramatic. I could see it being a fun movie.
