Feature and Follow Friday || Book Blogger Hop

This week's question is:
It is up to you to do a Kickstarter campaign for your favorite book! Who are you casting for the main characters?

My answer: 
I have too many favourite books so this is a toughie! Instead, I'm picking one of my favourite reads this year (and there are many!) which I want to be made into a movie. I'd love to see The Perfume Collector by Kathleen Tessaro go on the big screen. For the tempestuous French Eva d'Orsey, I am thinking Marion Cotillard (love everything about her!). For young spunky Englishwoman Grace Monroe, maybe Saoirse Ronan or Emma Watson (although Kate Winslet a la Sense and Sensibility would've worked even better!)



This week's question is:
Are you in a book club? How does your book club choose books? How far in advance do you choose?

My answer: No, I'm not in a book club. Reading remains a solitary business for me. I wonder how I would feel about being in a book club ... I think it may pressure me somehow! 

Have a wonderful Friday evening, and an even better weekend!

  3. Hopping through. I really liked being in a bookclub when I lived in California last year. It got me to read books I wouldn't normally but mostly because it was fun to hang out with friends.

    1. I can definitely see the appeal of book clubs. I guess I just haven't found my own little circle!

  4. Love your casting for this one, though I agree with you about Kate Winslet. But I'm partial to her anyway.

    1. I am soo partial to Kate. When I watched her in The Reader and Revolutionary Road, she just went waaaaay up there in my list of great actresses!

  5. Haven't read the book, but I love Marion Cotillard as an actress. I am also partial to Soairse Ronan, not because I like her more than Emma Watson, but because she seems pretty good as a character actress.

    1. I couldn't decide between Soairse and Emma, so I put them both. I think they could both pull off a spunky English gal!
