Feature And Follow Friday (23).

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?

Well one in production I'm wary about is the Mortal Instruments movie it's one of my favourite series and with the amount of troubles they've been having with casting, directors and deciding when to film the movie it has me worried.
And another series would be the Black Dagger Brotherhood I think they'd find it hard to cast any actors as the brothers.


  1. Cool choices..this was a neat question and I am finding everyone's thoughts on it to be interesting..of course no movie is ever as good as the book!

  2. I haven't read either of these series, I know I must be living under a rock right? I really have to get to them. Thanks for sharing!

    My F&F

  3. oh I would never see the BDB series just because I don't think they'll ever find people hot enough for the brothers. and I agree with the Mortal Instruments too. It doesn't look too good for now.

  5. I think that people are just worried that CoB hasn't been cast right, but I keep holding out hope that it's going to be just as good as The Hunger Games was, when it call comes together. My main worry is who they're casting as Magnus, I only have one person in my head who could portray him perfectly, and I'm pretty sure he wasn't cast. rotfl.

  8. Hopping through. I'm very nervous about the TMI movie. I do like Jamie though - more than Lily.

  9. NO WAY! They're making TMI into a movie?!? Hmm.... I wonder how that'll turn out. And who could they cast that would be perfect enough to be Jace?

  10. I think a lot of us are worried about TMI as a movie - I've seen it mentioned a lot this week!

    I've heard they're casting JCB as Jace, which really kind of worries me - he just isn't the same as my mental image!

  11. I totally agree with you. And I am really worried about TMI as a movie. I think it could ruined the whole story. And I don't want that to happen. :(


  12. Hi! I'm a new follower hopping by!

    Lovely answer! I think as long as the author has a voice and participates in the decisions needed for the movie, the movie will turn out fine.

    My fff:

  13. Totally agree with BDB!! Would not be the same. I haven't read the Mortal Instruments yet, still on my TBR list. Happy Friday!

    Here's my FF

  14. Mortal Instrument not too much but BDB oh why didn't I think of that. It would devastate me if they screw those up. :) Anyhoo, new follower here. :)

  15. I can't see the BDB series as movies or a tv show either.
