YOUR APRIL CO-HOST: CASSIE FROM SOUTHEAST BY MIDWEST
What are you reading now?
Right now I’m currently reading Righting a Wrong, which will be reviewed on Thursday, here’s the Goodreads Synopsis:
“Seven years ago, Cambri Blaine fled her small hometown of Bridger, Colorado after her senior year of high school ended in a fiasco. But now her father needs help, and Cambri has no choice but to return home. So with trepidation, she takes a leave of absence from the landscape architecture firm where she works and heads home, hoping against hope that Jace Sutton is no longer around and that the past can stay where it belongs—in the past.
If only life worked that way.
Jace never expected to see Cambri again. After she walked out of his life without a backward glance, he was left with no choice but to try to forget her and move on. But now that Cambri is back and looking more beautiful and sophisticated than ever, some of those old feelings resurface, and Jace instinctively knows, for the sake of his heart, that he needs to avoid her at all costs.
If only it were that easy.“
Divergent, Hunger Games, or Twilight. Which do you prefer and why? (If you’ve never read them which do you think you’d prefer?)
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 personally like when a TV series starts to make the series their own, especially when the author works closely with them. For example, The Walking Dead stayed pretty close to the first story arch of the comics during it’s first season only really adding a couple of characters that weren’t in the comics. However, after getting their footing they started to change things and veer off…and the author of the comics LOVED it, he actually writes episodes for the series. On the opposite hand when an author blatantly tries to go against what the series is doing for me it actually ruins the books because it makes them look petty.
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?
The problem with this question is that a lot of my favorite books have recently been made into movies. Jane Eyre, The Great Gatsby, etc. I’m actually going to veer here and go with a book I’d like to see remade. I think that if Twilight had a different set of actors it would have made the movie a lot better thus possibly making the book a lot better as well.
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 would make some changes that I think would help make the movie better. For example, the current Twilight series changes the ending from the book that instead of just having everyone go their separate ways they show you what the battle COULD have been. It winds up being Alice showing the Vulturi what will happen but it still made the ending better.
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?
I’ve stopped buying physical copies as much, now if I want a physical copy to read I borrow it from the library. I do have a few in my collection though that are just favorites.
