Follow Friday [6]

Q. 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?

Well my bestie and I have been dying for Uglies to be made into a movie. Forever. We have this dream that we'll be cast in it as Shay and Tally. She'll be Tally and I'll be Shay. I'm the meaner one ;) I hear a movie is in the works, but who knows. Obviously, if my dreams couldn't come true, I'd like to see Hailee Steinfeld from True Girt as Tally, but she's the only one I'm dead set on. Otherwise I have a hard time picking, since characters are already so well established in my mind!

What's your answer? Leave a comment with your link so I can check it out :)


  1. I really enjoyed this series as well and I imagine they will eventually make it into a movie!

  2. I haven't read this one yet, but I really should! I love that you want yourselves casted, that's just awesome. (I love when I can relate so well to a book that I can see myself as part of it)

  3. I've read this series and yes, it would make an interesting movie. Thanks for visiting my site, I'm now following you back.

    The Scarf Princess

  4. Returning the visit and follow! I totally forgot about this series. I've been wanting for this to be filmed since I read it in 2005!

  5. Ooh, good choice! I totally see her as Tally.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Hi, I'm Izzy and I'm stopping by for Follow Friday! That's a great choice - I can't believe I didn't think of the Uglies series, since I love it so much. If there was a movie version, I would definitely go and see it. It'd be interesting to see how they do the character appearance changes.

  7. I haven't read Uglies yet, but it sounds awesome and I can nevertheless imagine it being a great movie.

    I'm a new follower and I'd love if you'd follow back.

  8. I've never read these, but I've always wanted to. Hopefully sometimes soon I can get my hands on them.

  9. I didn't like/enjoy the book but I think it would make for a more interesting (visually) movie!

  10. Aww, I LOVE that you cast yourself as a character! I think that would be so cool! Then, if your dreams come true, we can all -- as your loyal followers -- say we knew you! ;)

    I haven't read the Uglies series before, but it's been on my TBR list for forever. Definitely thinking of picking them up soon!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, Anna! I'm an old follower for sure! :)

    Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  11. I haven't read this book(or the series) so I can't really comment on if I would like it or not. Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I've had this book in my bookshelf for like forever. I seriously need to read it! Have a great weekend!

  15. Oh Uglies. how I wish I could find that book to read one of these days. I keep hearing about it and I really want to read it! Mixed reviews for it though, so hopefully I'll be part of the more optimistic section!

    Thanks so much for the comment, following back now~

  16. Great choice! I haven't read Uglies series but sounds really great.
    My FF:

  17. I've heard good things about Uglies. It sounds like something my boyfriend would love to read. :p Hmm... I guess I'd better get him to. If it came out as a movie he'd ignore the book.

  18. You are the first one that I have seen with this on your list. I heard a lot of great things about it, but it is still on my shelf waiting for a read. New follower. Thanks for stopping by.

  19. I haven't read the Uglies series yet, but I've heard they are good. I'll read them at some point! That's so awesome when we love the characters enough we can see ourselves in their shoes!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  20. It is very cool that you and your bud have cast yourselves - it just shows how much the book means to you and how involved you could get in it. If I knew nothing else about the book that would be enough to make me intrigued.

    Thanks for stopping through Anna.

  23. I feel like I'm the only one who hasn't read this series! And Im a huge dystopian fan so I dont know whats holding me back! Maybe if its really being made into a movie it'll motivate me more to read the series before the movie actually comes out!
