Book Blogger Hop, February 18 – 21, 2011

Book Blogger Hop is a great way of discovering new blogs and meeting fellow book bloggers, talking about books and authors and sharing our love for literature.

Book Blogger Hop

As the Hop’s host, Jennifer, over at Crazy-for-Books says, better late than never. It was 5 a.m.  Saturday morning where I live when Jennifer posted this week’s Hop and I had a busy singing day today, so I’m posting only this late, but I really want to share my answer to this week’s question:

“What book(s) would you like to see turned into a movie?”


I was really looking forward to Eucalyptus by Murray Bail being made into a film starring Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman. It was announced to happen in 2005, but nothing has come out of it. I think it could be made into a great film and I still hope it will be done some day in one way or another.

    Never read Eucalyptus but the summary I read sounded good!! Here's my answer:
    Hope you have a great Sunday,

  3. I did this blog hop (first one, ever) too:

    And I answered: I'm going to have to say one of my favorite books, by Lorna Landvik, Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons. The women of Freesia Court start a book club (love the mention of other books within a book) that proves to be the starting point in a friendship that lasts a lifetime...and we all know a LOT of things can happen to a woman and between friends in a year, let alone a lifetime. This book is one of very few that I've read more than once. I loved it that much. And, although, I fear the powers that be would cast the wrong people in the roles of the women, that the director might take the book I love so much in the wrong direction, that important storylines and details (think Lawanda the elephant from The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood novel being changed into an airplane for the movie) or that that they'd change the ending (My Sister's Keeper, anyone?); I'd still love to see this book I love so much on the big screen.


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
