Welcome to the 11th weekly I HEART YA Blog Carnival! I HEART YA is a Blog Carnival for readers, writers, and lovers of young adult fiction. Every Tuesday there will be a blogging prompt that celebrates my favorite reading genre --YA fiction. Bloggers are invited to write their own take on the topic and post a link in the comment section, or if you prefer just put your thoughts in the comments. Either way, if you own a blog, grab the button to show your pride, and add your link to the list below. If you're not sure what to do, go to the I HEART YA tab for more details.
In honor of this week's release of Hunger Games, and the frenzy it has caused, I figured it would be a good time to talk about Books Being Made Into Movies. I have mixed feelings on the subject. I think it's a difficult thing to pull off: that transition from book to movie. If the Hollywood folk's try to include everything in the book they end up with a monster of a movie. Yet if they start taking things out, there's disappointment. I usually like to see the movie first. That way I don't have any expectations. But that's a little tough to do when the movie is based on something like Hunger Games. No way I could skip that just so I won't be disappointed in the movie.
So what about you? Do you love book remakes? Hate them? Is there one coming up you can't wait to see? Or something you're wishing would be made? Maybe you have one you just want to chat about. The field's wide open this week!
So now it's time to party! Add your blog to the link, grab your badge, put your thoughts in the comments section, and be sure to link to your own blog so we can get to know one another!
