Friday Hops

This week's question:

Q. 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?

Wow. I have seen what Hollywood does to books and frankly it terrifies me. TrueBlood comes to mind. I do love both the books and the series. However I had to divorce one from the other because they are so radically different.  
If it was not going to be butchered and changed into an entirely different entity I have several books I would like to see. 

Series I think would be interesting:

Evolutions by Ami Blackwelder. 
Midnight Breed by Lara Adrian
The Eternal Series by Jennifer Turner. 
Fever by Karen Marie Moning
Jane Jameson or the Naked Werewolf - Molly Harper
Mercedes Thompson by Patricia Briggs
Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill

Books that I think would be interesting:

Confessions of a Call Center Gal by Lisa Lim
Ghost on Black Mountain by Ann Hite
Waiting for Karl Rove by Jenni Decker and Kat Nove
Mindbenders by Ted Krever
The Undead Situation by Eloise J Knapp
Loser's Town by Daniel Depp

There are a lot more I know. I may come back and edit to add them. Actors in them  - really don't know at this point. Might have to edit for that one too. 

This week's question:
In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite “banned" or "frequently challenged" book?

I have read so many of them. I enjoyed the majority of them. Favorites? I have too many. There are just too many awesome ones to pick only one book. I am currently reading 

The Facts Speak For Themselves by Brock Cole

I do not even know where to begin.  With Are you there God? It's Me Margaret by Judy Blume or with The Giver by Lois Lowery? Or should I start with a classic like Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee? Maybe I should name a more recent book. How about Harry Potter by J K Rowling or TTYL; TTFN; L8R; G8R Series by Lauren Myracle? How about The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison? I could go on and on. I have two list on my blog of Banned Books, List 1 ; List 2. Take your pick of any I have highlighted. They all have enriched me. None harmed me. Losing the right to read any book is what would harm me.

I told him to put some underwear on after his bath. Apparently I should have told him where to put them on.

Hopping through. I think Chicagoland Vampires and the Fever series would both be fabulous movies.
