Are you ready to hop?

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?
I would LOVE to see Divergent by Veronica Roth be made into a movie (last time I mentioned this someone told me the movie rights were already purchased for this movie - so I'm excited!). I don't care who plays Tris ... as long as it's done well!
Blood Red Road by Moira Young is another one I'd like to see on the big screen.
This would make an awesome movie so much action, gritty and a tiny bit of love. I'm ready to buy my ticket now! Again, with is one, I don't care who plays Saba as long as she's AWESOME!
UPDATE: I just googled this and it is in development for a movie 2014. Hoorray!

Q: In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite "banned or frequently challenged book"?"
There are SO many good books on this list.
My favorites (yes plural because I couldn't pick just one):
I really enjoyed Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen. This was one book that I wanted MORE when I finished it. I LOVED the characters and the story and I was really entertained!
(too bad the movie SUCKED)!
C'mon. These books are AMAZING! This is an obvious choice for me as a favorite on this banned list. I recommend it to everyone AND if I were a re-reader of books I would totally pick this book up again & again!

Q: Banned Books: How do you feel about the censorship of the freedom to read? Do you think the education system needs to be more strict on what children are exposed to in books?
This can be a bit of a tricky question for me because I don't have my own children - and how I feel as a non-parent may change one day if/when I have kids. But a lot of the books that are banned on the list are banned/challenged for reasons that left me saying "WTF?!".
For example: The Hunger Games gave someone's kid nightmares and may numb others to violence. My Reaction: maybe your 11 year old child shouldn't be reading The Hunger Games yet. And in regards of numbing children to violence .... have parent seen the stuff on television these days?!
I think the parents should decide if certain books are age appropriate for their children or not before deciding the book should be banned/challenged for other children that are mature and/or interested in reading that same book.
To Kill a Mockingbird is on this list -- I mean ... Really?! I read this book in school. I liked it then just as much as I like it now.
Anyhoo - Thanks for Hopping by!
Enjoy your weekend~
