Lights, cameras, action! Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for me to unveil a tag of my own invention: THE MOVIE BOOK TAG. *throws popcorn and confetti* I can’t believe that I have finally gotten around to making my own tag! And it’s about books. Books and movies. Almost as good as books and cookies, right? =D
Thank the person that tagged you and link back to the original creator (ME!).

The Questions and Answers
Books or movies, which are better?
Books. Hands down, books. Why have I even included this as a question?! *see above gif* No offense, movies, but you don’t smell as good or look as pretty on shelves. Just saying.
What book needs to be made into a movie RIGHT NOW?
For me, it’s a tie between Nadine Brandes’s A Time To Die and Joanne Bischof’s To Get To You. Both would be such epic movies, with aaaalllll the feels and shrieks and confetti and the need for sequels. *sighs*
What movie adaption of a book has disappointed you the most?
The entire Percy Jackson movie series. I watched the movies and died a little inside. *insert popcorn throwing and weeping here* First of all, the movies barely even stuck to the true story in the books. Second of all… The books are just so much better. Period. *more weeping*
What movie adaption of a book has made you throw confetti and walk away happy?
The Hunger Games movies left me a very happy human being—the only one that disappointed me was Mockingjay Part One. *Snoopy happy dance* But other than that, I felt that they did a pretty good job staying true to the original books, not to mention the superb acting brought Katniss and the world around her to life. *throws confetti* MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR.
What movie adaption of a book have you seen, but never read the book it’s based on?
Gah, I am SO guilty of watching movies and yet not seeing the books that they are based off of. But if I have to pick one that I REALLY need to read, it’d be The Book Thief. I loved the movie so much, and now I need to read the actual book. Wow, every time I do a post, I end up with a longer TBR list. #bloggerproblems
What book have you read, but never seen the movie adaption of?
*puts on a thinking cap* I don’t think that I have ever read a book and never seen its movie adaption. It’s usually the other way around (see above). Which is SO SAD. That just means I should be reading more…. *barricades self in room with aaaalllll the books*
Who would star in the movie adaption of your current WIP?
Ooooohhhh this is a hard one! *takes a look at my character board* For Second Star To The Right, I’d pick Georgie Henley to play Jane Darling. She just looks like Jane and seems soft-spoken and gentle yet strong-like Jane. Peter would be the hardest for me to cast, since he’s once of the most complicated characters in the whole story. Maybe Josh Hutcherson?
Captain Hook is easier though. He’d just be a teenage version of Colin O’Donoghue,you know, the guy who plays Captain Hook from Once Upon A Time. He’s seriously the best Hook EVER. Don’t argue with me, because you KNOW it is the truth, okay? Okay. Now, next question…
When the credits roll after the movie adaption of the WIP you discussed above, what song will be playing?
Ruth B’s “Lost Boy” for SURE would be playing in the credits. That’s the song that has inspired this whole story, the one that has put fairies and never growing up and Lost Boys in my imagination. *insert happy, dreamy sighs here*
