: MY RAMBLINGS :

All the postings here reflect my opinion or ratings (books/movies) ... I ask everyone to watch a movie and make up your own mind - the same with a book ... don't just take my word for it!

I have been known to hate a movie and others love it - and vice versa ... that's what makes us all unique and wonderful - we all have our own opinion, likes and dislikes!

RATINGS :
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Excellent Read - do yourself a favor
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Good Read - you won't be disappointed
♥ ♥ ♥ = Not Bad Read - chill out and unwind
♥ ♥ = Okay Read - if you have nothing else
♥ = YAWN - don't bother :(

REVIEWS :
If you are an author or publisher ... I would love to review your book! I read all genres, and would review all books in a reasonable time frame. You can contact me at dennypsp@hotmail.com

Ooooh - such an awesome give-away! I am a fan (um, addict) of the book depository :)

most excited about Aussie YA Beatle Meets Destiny - which I read then discovered is being made into a feature film. yay! will be an off-beat comedy.

Also, Stealing heaven by Elizabeth Scoot could make a good contemp movie.
and another Australian author Helen Fitzgeralds' the Devils Staircase. very arty and freaky with a serial killer too :)

Christina said...

The book I would most like to see made into a movie is The Maze Runner. The book was good, but I didn't love it the way most of my friends did. I think it would make a fantastic movie. I could not choose something I love too much to make into a movie, since there are so many ways it could go wrong!

I would love to see Rob Thurman's 'Nightlife' make it to the big screen. It's such a brilliant story and has great dialog that it would make a fortune in the hands of the right director/producer.

TWO: Theater Illuminata series by Lisa Mantchev...would make an AWESOME movie...trust me. THREE: The Forbidden Game series by L.J. Smith. They just re-released this in an omnibus edition....though I read it back in the 90's and yeah, definitely make an awesome movie, or three, as well!
