And here are my answers to the questions:
1. Favourite book-to-film adaptation?
I usually don’t like the film adaptations… But I’ve seen A Monster Calls recently, and I think the film was amazing! There were some changes but they were done great. I also like the Interview with the Vampire film.
2. Following on – what book do you want to be made into a TV show/film?
None. Just let books be books. 😉 Maaaaybe The Vampire Chronicles series? But one-season series, I don’t want it to go to far from the books.
3. Lastly – now dreamcast that film/tv show, only a few characters.
I think Jared Leto would be a great Lestat. And someone nice for Louis, maybe Tom Hiddleston since he already played a brooding vampire in Only Lovers Left Alive and he was great. Natalie Dormer would definitely be a great Gabrielle! And when you say Akasha, I think Aaliyah… She was so perfect, I don’t think anyone would be able to compare to her… Just look at her! It’s so sad and unfair that she’s gone…
4. If you were to write a book, what do you think your main character would be called?
Well, the main character of my WIP is called Evelyn.
5. What are three songs you adore and why?
This is soooo hard! *spends an hour thinking* OK, I’ll just say these three before I change my mind: “White Flag” by The Romanovs, “Deception” by The Crüxshadows, and “Pain Looks Good on You” by London After Midnight.
6. Do you play video games? What are a couple of your favourites?
I don’t play as much as I used to. My all time favourite game is Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. (Vampires seem to be the theme of this post. XD) And I love The Sims, I have to admit. They are my on-and-off obsession.
7. What book would you like to play through as a video game?
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. I think that would be very fun!
8. What is your favourite Disney film?
Just one? Oh, I can’t pick one, so here’s a few: The Emperor’s New Groove, Tangled, Mulan, The Huchback of Notre Dame, Lilo and Stitch…
9. What three book characters would you like to have lunch with?
Hermione Granger, because she’s great and bookish and I think we would get along quite well. Lady Trent from A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan – we would talk about dragons and she would teach me a lot. And Newt Scamander, because we could talk about magical creatures. I think Newt, Lady Trent and Hermione would all get along perfectly so if we all had luch together, that would be great. 🙂
10. If you were to get a book related tattoo, what would you get?
A quote, definitely. I love quote tattoos! I’d pick one from Fankenstein because that’s my favourite book, but there are a few I like so I’m not sure which one… Or, since we’re talking so much about The Vampire Chronicles, this one from The Vampire Lestat: “Who cares? Kingdoms rise and fall. Just don’t burn the paintings in the Louvre, that’s all.”
11. What’s your favourite breakfast food?
Oatmeal, either with grated apple and cinnamon, or with cocoa and coconut crumbs. Mmmmmm…
I tag: Blogging for Dopamine, Slamah’s Bookshelf, Nicole, llady literary, Misty, Azia, Reg, bookowly, The Storyteller’s Abode, Cat’s Shelf, Birdie Bookworm, Silvia.
