Day 10: #seasonsreadings2016 #thisshouldbeamovie I have always thought that this delightful book series should be made into a movie (or trio of movies)! They are hysterical and I would love to see them played out on screen! @RealLifeReading

Even though the dystopia genre has been adapted within an inch of its life, I still believe #ThisShouldBeAMovie. #SeasonsReadings16

This was sufficiently twisty and suspenseful that I finished it in one day. The ending was perfect! #ihategeorgeclooney #thisshouldbeamovie #seasonsreadings2016

Alfoster Good to know! On my TBR list!! 3y
Michelle_mck That he died of thirst in that room was perfect! 3y

I enjoyed this novel, set in both Tokyo and Vancouver. I would love to see this made into a film in the near future. I know some of the time travel (?) elements would be a little tricky to film, but I'm sure Ozeki would write an awesome screenplay! #thisshouldbeamovie #japan #canada

JulietteGF The cover is sooo pretty 😍😍😍 3y
JSW Such a thoughtful, profound book. 3y
EvieBee @JulietteGF it is! I ended up buying a hard copy because I loved the book and cover so much. 3y
EvieBee @JSW Wasn't it? My mind was blown with all the details that came together at the end, and the scientific themes throughout. 3y

City of Bohane | Kevin Barry

I would love to see this novel transformed into a film but I wonder if the powerful language could be captured visually. Barry's powers of description are vivid, witty, intelligent and a little off-centre. In the right hands, this would make an amazing film #thisshouldbeamovie #seasonsreading2016

In keeping with my Michelangelo theme, I chose these two books for #fictionnonfictionpairings. The first book is a novel of the artist's life and work and the second is his autobiography. I also thought that this would be a good pick for the #thisshouldbeamovie prompt. But I looked it up and a movie was already made! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Agony_and_the_Ecstasy_(film) #day9 #day10 #seasonsreadings2016

charl08 The book is better though! 3y
PurpleyPumpkin @charl08 😉Isn't that often the case? I think it's just too difficult to translate all of the details to the big screen. 3y

Rivers of London | Ben Aaronovitch

Please excuse the absence of Rivers of London. It's in possession of a coworker. I used to own 2 of the 4 copies I've bought, but Dad fell in love so I let him keep it. Maybe I need another spare.

Anyway! This was written by a screenwriter who worked on Dr Who and there are talks of a TV SHOW! Which I would be equally happy with. I just need more formats, more things to possess.

it's a December photo challenge twofer! 1) I think this haunting, lyrical YA novel would be a great film. #thisshouldbeamovie 2) This is the first ebook I ever read. I was late to the ereader party, and I still prefer physical books. I use the Kindle app on my iPad, but I also have a Nook. #ereader #seasonsreadings2016

The Eyre Affair: A Novel | Jasper Fforde
post image

The book that most makes me think #thisshouldbeamovie out of my currently reading list is The Eyre Affair! It would be so good, but Fforde won't sell the rights and can't find an actress he's willing to make the movie with himself. 😕 #seasonsreadings2016

McFarchie Such a fun read 3y
TheLondonBookworm Brilliant series! At least he knows what he wants :) 3y
charl08 I think Jennifer Lawrence would be fun. But probably way too expensive. 3y

christineandbooks I started that this past year but wasn't getting into it... too distracted by other stuff at the time. Love the premise, though, and keep hearing great things about it so I will try again. 3y
Kristio I love Jasper Fforde! You should read Shades of Gray and The Last Dragonslayer! 3y
tpixie Lovely photo!! I love the series. Thanks for information! 3y
writek I second Shades of Gray as another excellent choice! 3y
readinginthedark @charl08 Yeah, she would be good, but in an interview he said he'd want an unknown with a stage background who could still stand up to the challenge, which is probably why he hasn't found someone to satisfy his wishes yet. He didn't say this, but maybe he's also looking primarily in Britain? 3y
readinginthedark @Kristio @writek Oh yeah, I have pretty much everything by him on my TBR now! 3y
readinginthedark @christineandbooks I hope you come back to it! I haven't finished yet, but I really enjoy how Fforde ties realities (like the hardships of war) in with funky sci-fi (jumping into books and changing them)! 3y
