In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite “banned or frequently challenged book”?
Mine would be Ulysses by James Joyce. Sure it's a bit prententious, but it is also a wonderful read if you concentrate on the style and how it is put together. It is a very clever piece of writing - even if Joyce does know it!
What book that hasn't been turned into a movie (yet) would you most like to see make it to the big screen, and who would you like cast as your favorite character?
Any of the Saint Germain books by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro (yes, I'm mentioning them yet again) and they'd be wonderful lavish period dramas with the magic of the paranormal element thrown in. A perfect mix! At to casting, I find that a tough one as the lead man (Saint Germain) has to be handsome, charismatic, mysterious and possess an inner strength. I would go with Ralph Fiennes. Sure. he's not exactly the right height and build for the character, but I think he could get around that with his amazing presence on the screen.
I haven't read that series (yet!), but I love Ralph Fiennes; he's a fantastic actor.ReplyDelete
Hopping through. Thanks for reminding me about Yarbro's books. I looked them up after you mentioned that last week. I was surprised there were so many. And some were published in the 1970s! Which should I start with?ReplyDelete
I've never heard of teh Saint Germain books, must go and look them up on Goodreads now!ReplyDelete
Although i can already say with confidence that Ralph Fiennes is a good choice, he's a great actor :)
Have an awesome weekend, and please stop by if you can, i love meeting new people!

I've heard the name Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, but am not familiar with this series. It sure sounds interesting! I'll check it out. Any books that would bring up Ralp Fiennes have GOT to be terrific!!
