Literary Junkies: April Edition

Pink Heels Pink Truck

I can't believe it is already time for Literary Junkies again!  For those of you that are new followers, LJ's is a link up that is done once a month for all of us book lovers out here in blogland.  This is where we all get to basically geek out.  It's a pretty fun time!  If you are interested in joining us, please check out Taylor or Christine's blog. 

And now for this month's questions!

1. What are you reading right now? Tell us about it!
I just started The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult Sunday evening.  I read two pages and literally started nodding off.  It's not the book-I was just that exhausted from our weekend. I really like Picoult and I am excited to read this-after I get a little more sleep in me. ;)
 

2. Divergent, Hunger Games, or Twilight. Which do you prefer and why? (If you've never read them which do you think you'd prefer?)
I've only ever read the Twilight series.  The other two aren't really cup of tea. 


3. TV Series Based on Books they start out very close to the book to draw in the fans but then will start to separate themselves by changing things and adding characters. What are you thoughts on this?
I'm not much for watching TV series' that are from books.  I used to watch True Blood, but that was maybe one or two seasons.  It was a good series, but I have never read the books, so I can't compare it. 


4. You've just been recruited to help a movie studio bring your favorite book to the big screen. What's the movie and who are you choosing to play the main characters?
Wow.  Um....I've thought about this since I got the email Sunday night and I really can't think of a complete answer. :( 


5. Going back to the above question, do you keep it word for word the same or do you use this chance to change little things you thought would make the book better?
I can answer this though!  I would change little things, but nothing majorly important to the story. 



6. After you finish a physical copy of a book do you keep it for a reread, put it on a shelf to collect dust, donate it to Goodwill, or do you just not purchase physical copies of books?
It depends on the book.  I either end up keeping them or I will re-sell them.  

That's it for today! Have a good one!
