Happy Friday! Ready for Fall?

Since Labor Day is the official end of summer, I guess it's fall? Or at least we should be getting ready for fall? The weather has cooled where I live, football games have started, and they are picking apples at the orchard. I love fall! I don't know why -- it's always very busy, but I just love fall weather. I hope you enjoy your weekend, and could you send some of that rain my way? We're a bit parched here in the Midwest. On with the show.....

Here's a very unusual question from Parajunkee and Alison:


Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one?



Oh, that's an easy one. Voldemort, of course.  Uhhhh --- just kidding!! I don't really think so. I'm a pretty "traditional" reader and don't tend to think too much outside the box when it comes to good vs. evil. I'll be very interested to read some other answers to this one, though! Bring it on!



Ginger at GReads! has an interesting question this week:

Books to Television: Which books would you love to see made in to a tv series? or movie? 


I'm afraid I'm going to totally bail on this question. I don't watch that much TV, and I've never really watched a show that came from a book. No Vampire Diaries, no Friday Night Lights, no Pretty Little Liars. As far as movies, I have little faith that I will like them as much as the book (although The Help proved me wrong about that) but I think Ship Breaker or Divergent would both be movies that I would at least want to watch.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for visiting. I'll try to return the favor.

  5. I love fall! I'm definitely a sweater and jeans girl haha.
    I like happy book endings so if a villain won I'd be very conflicted!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. I'm a pretty traditional reader as well. It has been fun to see everyone's answers to this question. Most people don't want the villain to win, but there are a few who have.

  10. I'm always slightly hesitant with movie adaptations. Some are fabulous and others are dreadful.
    I don't watch much TV either. I haven't watched any of the series you mentioned. :D
    Divergent would be awesome though.
    thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great weekend.

  13. I'm sure there was a villain I would have liked to have beaten the hero but I can't think of it right now! Intriguing question, though.
