Quote from Captivated

"I stood close to the edge looking down at what I thought was my death. Then, I somehow ignored the water and only saw him. He looked like a dark angel on a cloud of mist holding his arms out to me. I closed my eyes and inhaled deeply. Then I jumped." Mindy - Captivated, An Affliction Novel

Books Turned to Film...

We see it everywhere, but most of us are unhappy with the results, including myself.

Take Vampire Diaries, the show is okay and I watch it, but it's nothing compared to the books! Man, I was eating the series up and couldn't wait to see it on my TV screen! I was disappointed. :(  If you haven't had the pleasure of reading the books, I HIGHLY recommend them (I stopped reading in the middle of Shadow Souls, it just wasn't the same).

True Blood was another victim. It was as if the producers never picked up a book from the series. And what's with all the orgies in the second season? The third was better, but I just haven't felt like watching the fourth. I have a friend that read the entire series faster than I ever thought possible and she couldn't wait to watch the show. She bought seasons one and two and was sourly disappointed. I was happy of coarse because she ended up giving them to me! :)  (I really enjoy watching Eric)

I know this isn't a book, but it's still something I was disappointed with. Dragon Ball Z...yes, I watched it as a teen! I was hooked and so were my brothers and my mom. *sigh* The movie was embarrassing and it could have been bad ass, but it got screwed up too. I mean, I enjoyed it a little, but it had soooo much more potential.

Fallen by Lauren Kate, Evermore by Alyson Noel, and many others were picked up for film. I hope Hollywood won't disappoint. If they would just stick with the story-line we fell in love with, everything would be fantastic! Oh well, at least we can open the book back up and imagine our own characters. :)
