BOOKING THROUGH THURSDAY — COMING TO A THEATER NEAR YOU! — APRIL 28

Welcome to another edition of Booking Through Thursday.  Today’s prompt has us turning books into movies.

If you could see one book turned into the perfect movie–one that would capture everything you love, the characters, the look, the feel, the story–what book would you choose?

When I thought about it, I was torn between a couple of different books.  I think something with suspense and intrigue would be perfect, so, of course, I chose Still Missing, by Chevy Stevens.  A young realtor who is kidnapped for unknown reasons and held captive by someone frightening and mysterious…I can see all kinds of heart-pounding moments.  The cabin, the forest, the mysterious elements:  all could elicit the attention of the movie-goer.

Then I also thought about a drama I read recently:  Jodi Picoult’s Sing You Home.  There is plenty of interaction, and the characters can show us the emotions that range from fear to anger, etc.; the scenes in a lovely New England setting would be mournfully poignant.

So what delightful movie productions have you envisioned?  I hope you’ll stop by and share!

  1. Thanks for visiting My Reading Corner, as you have already seen, I loved the book Family Tree, by Barbara Delinsky. However, these books you have chosen sound like they would also make great movies. I have never read either one, so will have to make a visit to my library and see if they have them on their shelves.

  2. Never hear either of your books. The Jody Picoult must be new!
    I know you stopped by already but what I didn’t meantion about my pick Magic Kingdom for Sale by Terry Brooks.. I picture Jim Carrey in the main role. I myself like him but some people will cringe.

  3. I haven’t read either of these, but Still Missing sounds like it would make a good thriller film. I have heard so much about Jodi Picoult, I will have to pick up a book by her soon.

  4. Hey,
    thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. You’re right, it a hard to pick…

    I haven’t read your choices, but have put them on my never-ending TBR pile. I was really into Jodi Picoult a couple of years ago, and don’t know why I stopped reading her. I think a lot of her books would translate well into movies.
