What is one book I would be nervous to see made into a movie adaptation?

Anna and the French Kiss. Or Daughter of Smoke and Bone. In the case of Anna, I just don’t think any actors could take the place of Anna and Etienne; I don’t think it would work, and I don’t think they could capture all of their essence. In the case of Smoke and Bone, there’s just so much awesome that I think a lot of it would be left out in a movie.

Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?

I’m not sure I’ve BOUGHT a book for that reason, but I’ve definitely checked out a book because of a bad review. As soon as I see something get less than three stars, I’ll search through Goodreads and Amazon reviews to see if people felt similarly or not. So I guess, in a way, bad reviews compel me to look further into a book, but I don’t recall ever buying a book because of a bad review.

Socialpunk by Monica Leonelle

Ima would give anything to escape The Dome and learn what’s beyond its barriers, but the Chicago government has kept all its citizens on lockdown ever since the Scorched Years left most of the world a desert wasteland. When a mysterious group of hooded figures enters the city unexpectedly, Ima uncovers a plot to destroy The Dome and is given the choice between escaping to a new, dangerous city or staying behind and fighting a battle she can never win.

 

As a kick-off to the Socialpunk blog tour, I thought it’d only be fitting to get all of you excited about this book and trilogy, too! The description is a little reminiscent of The Hunger Games, isn’t it? Or, perhaps, The Water Wars? Either way, it looks like a promising dystopian read. But, if you won’t take my word for it, read for yourself! Below are three links to Kindle, Nook/iPad and PDF files of preview chapters. Check ‘em out!

Oh, and did I mention there’s a contest running from April 3rd – April 30th? ‘Cause there is, and you should totally participate and pass the news along. There are some GREAT prizes.
