Feature and Follow Friday #38

A weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee's View

How it Works: 

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you visit the blogs of our illustrious hosts and leave your name on the post using using the linky tools, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to Wordpress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don't have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.

This Week's Question: 

What book/series do you think would make a better TV show than a movie?

This Week's Answer: 

I love when books get turned into TV shows! There's so much more room to be true to the source material. I personally think These Broken Stars aka the Starbound series would make a fantastic TV show. And I'm not just saying that because there was talk of that happening back in the winter.

I love Science Fiction TV shows, space opera, and all that like Battlestar Galactica and Firefly. But also the format of These Broken Stars alternating narrators would be much better suited to a TV show format. With each episode you could switch to Lilac or Tarver (think Lost season 1). The atmosphere and mood of the book would be so good in the format of a TV show, again like Lost, where you are so confused and wondering what could possibly be going on here! Plus I think the mystery and big reveal would be a great cliffhanger to end an episode or season! It would be incredibly mean but it would be brilliant television!

How about you? What book would you like to see made into a TV show? Leave me a comment with your thoughts.

 And remember this is a blog hop so take a look around and if you like what you see give me a follow and leave me a comment so I can follow back. I am indifferent to the manner in which you follow so pick your poison: GFC, Bloglovin, and/or Twitter. I'm also on YouTube now so you can check me out HERE and subscribe! I've been posting videos every Friday!

Thanks for dropping by, Happy FF and HAPPY READING!

  4. Oh man! You'd pull a Lost on us?! ;)

    I loved that show when it first began. It was nuts, all over the place, but it lost me in the second to last season because it seriously went to time traveling! Like the show wasn't confusing enough! LOL!

    Never did read this one, but recall a lot of hype around it. Those tend to scare me, because I always feel like I won't like it like everyone else!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

  8. Hi, I'm a new Bloglovin' follower and it's my first time participating in FF. I've never read These Broken Stars but it's been on my wishlist for a while as I'm in love with the cover and a big fan of sci-fi. I think I'd enjoy it as a TV show if it's anything like Lost.
