This weeks question:  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? 
 
Hmm, that's a touch question.. There are so many amazing books out there that would make INCREDIBLE movies!!  I'd love to see Andy McDermott's Nina & Eddie series made into movies - they are so much fun and full of history and action.

I'd love to see Skye O'Malley by Bertrice Small made into a movie!! It is a historical romance and might be a bit difficult because of some of the content - but she is such an incredible character and the story is so amazing.  All of Bertrice's books are amazing - any of them would make great movies.

Another book I'd love to see as a movie would be the The Alchemyst (the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel) by Michael Scott.  Such an awesome series - it's a YA paranormal, the most recent book the Warlock came out just recently!

Who would I cast... That's tough because there are some many amazing actors out there and so many coming into the industry.  Ideally I'd cast Lucy Lawless as Skye O'Malley (older Skye) - for Nina I'd probably pick Rachel Weisz (she did such an amazing job in the Mummy as an archeologist!) and Chris Hemsworth as Eddie.

This weeks question:  In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite “banned or frequently challenged book”?
 
There are so many amazing books on the banned or frequently challenged list that I loved!  Example:  Water for Elephants, Anne Frank, Brave New World, and Catcher in the Rye.  We read quite a few books that were questionable in our high school English class (about 12 years ago) that now are on banned book lists.

  1. I remember the book "Go Ask Alice" being challenged often by the school librarian, thus making it a highly sought after book by us kids. That book alone scared me into never getting involved with drugs, so it's benefit far outweighed the concern surrounding it!
