THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What obscure book do you think should be turned into a move?


I’m Super Excited About…

How many of you have heard about Marie Lu creating Hanna’s illustrations for the upcoming sequel to Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff’s The Illuminae Files series, GeminaWell people, it’s true! I already had the honor of snagging an ARC for this book at BookCon but I will for sure be getting my hands on one of these beauties, as well. Lu is going to be having a pretty exciting October with the release of the finale to her The Young Elites series, The Midnight Starand the release of her drawings in Gemina. Makes me feel really inadequate, as the only thing that I will probably be doing in October is eating a shitload of candy and watching lots of football. 25 years old and excelling at life, whoop!

 What obscure book do you think should be turned into a movie?

Okay, this is kind of hard because ‘obscure’ can be pretty broad, because everyone has different opinions on what they think could be considered popular. But for a book that I’ve read and haven’t really seen talked about in the book world – I’m going to go with Asleep by Krystal Wade. I just finished reading it a few weeks ago and considering it’s an indie, I would say that qualifies as obscure. You can read my review about it HERE. It’s creepy and dark, and I think Tim Burton would do a great job bringing it to life. Who wouldn’t love seeing Sleeping Beauty brought to life in an asylum by Burton?! I’m smelling box office success right there!


What does your Musing Monday look like? What’s an obscure book that you think would make a good movie? Would you like to see an adaptation of Asleep done by Burton?

  1. Counting down the days til that baby blue book is in my hands! *SquuEeee* can’t wait to see what Marie Liu has done with the artwork. I’ve never heard of Asleep, but if Tim Burton is your pick for the adaptation then this book may be dark & lovely…something I’d be interested in picking up 😉
